|3.5 great||InsertTacosHere | May 5th 08|
The 3.5 that I give this album is a bit of a compromise between the greatness of the music and the utter lack of necessity of the reissue. Maybe Brian Fair just needed some extra money to buy a new car or something, because I own the original, I've heard this, and I've found very little difference between the two. There's no need whatsoever to spend your money on this if you have the original, whose sound quality wasn't bad to begin with. That being said, this album features some of Shadows Fall's best work. While "Crushing Belial" and "Revel in My Loss" kick ass and take names from start to finish, the acoustic passages on "Round Bout Apollo" and "To Ashes" are equally as delicate and melodic. It stumbles in a few spots ("Montauk," anywhere Fair tries to sing) but a fine display of the power of Shadows Fall in their younger days.

I always really liked this album from Shadows Fall and the fact that they reissue and remastered it just seems awesome. This is right after Brian fair joined the band and what I consider the bands first real album. My favorite songs are Of One Blood, Fleshold, Reveal In My Loss, and To Ashes.
