Probably Tilian's best album, though that's not saying much. I hear a mixture of DBMII, Happiness and Instant Gratification, the first two being among my favourite DGD albums, but that doesn't necessarily mean that all is well here. A lot of songs lack cohesion and feel like riffs held together by duct tape, so many parts just don't flow or transition well, or end abruptly. The lyrics, however, are easily the worst part of this album. Tilian may be doing great performance wise, his lyrics here are some of his absolute worst. There are plenty of good moments to be found, but they are mostly overshadowed by the chaos and cringeworthy lyrics. The best tracks here are the singles plus Frozen One and Petting Zoo Justice.
Dance Gavin Dance Summertime Gladness / Pussy Vultures
Dance Gavin Dance Artificial Selection
lots of fun riffs and other good parts scattered throughout, but overall it's kinda meh to me. that and tilian still doesn't and will never do it for me but i've come to terms with that i guess.

It's good, but it's not as great as everyone is making it out to be. It's, again, the case where a band sees going softer as progression. It reminds me of ALLB where the band took after Franzino's solo project. A lot of these songs sound like they could've been on Walsh's solo album. The singles (apart from Chaos in Motion) are the bangers, the rest is good but not great compared to I The Mighty's past work.
