2.0 poorSlex | July 31st 18

An utterly perplexing and generic black hole of wasted talent and completely bloodless, by the numbers radio rock. If you hated the singles, don't waste your time, because the album is even worse.

It's a great album. There are so many moments on here that are very well arranged and produced. As an older fan of the band there were certain moments that were hard to adjust to but as I listened more, they grew on me. But there also were songs that hit hard right away. Examples of those are "Something Bigger than This", "Miming the Choir", "I can Feel It Calling" which is Trophy Eyes's best arranged song ever, and "Tip Toe". I think a fault with the album was the fact that some songs have both good and "meh" moments in them which can sometimes be a turnoff since I want to hear a song sound consistent all throughout. However, the really good moments are really good and that's what brought it to a 4.

Almost everything on here screams for radio play. ?I Can Hear It Calling? is fantastic, and there are some subtle hints of good stuff floating around. However, compared to the titan that was ?Chemical Miracle? this was a major let down.

3.0 goodFoozerFan | August 3rd 18

There's moments of greatness here, but a lot of the decisions Trophy Eyes make on this album are... puzzling. John's vocal performance is fantastic, and he shows a gorgeous clean baritone on a few songs. My main qualms with this record are the repetitive choruses and the incessant use of gang vocals. It feels like they were trying too hard to write a Catchy Chorus Hit with each song. rMaybe it was impossible not to be disappointed after Chemical Miracle, but thankfully it's not nearly as bad as i imagined it to be from the singles. I'll keep listening and hope it grows on me.
