Listened to it again and it just reminded of the amount of work and layering this album underwent. The band at least deserves credit for changing their sound.

If "Show Yourself" wasn't on the album then this would be a serious contender for Mastodon's best album.

Stay With Me until the end of the album is fucking astounding. A bit of a rocky first half with some
great songs (Hurricane, The Long Defeat) but some uninteresting songs as well. Maybe those
songs might grow later on.

After listening through the album a few times its definitely different to the debut, which is
obviously going to happen since its been 17 years. Most songs do still have that AF vibe to them,
dont worry the trumpets are there, though few and far between. Some songs, especially Home Is
Where The Haunt Is do sound pretty much like Owen. The inclusion of ambient pads is very
welcome and differently accentuates certain songs. No instrumental songs which is a bummer
but, overall, excellent album with a lot of standout moments throughout. Its not on the same level
as the debut and thats perfectly fine. You done good AF.

The album grew on me, tracks such as "Graphic Nature" were tedious to me before but now my favourite tracks are constantly changing, making for more listening appeal.

Katatonia The Fall of Hearts
Fantastic production let down by some some lacklustre song writing that seems like a jam session
without much cohesion (see first 2 minutes of Takeover), this type of aimless wandering making
for longer songs leaves the listener simply bored. However there are some fantastic moments
sprinkled throughout. The more direct songs definitely steal the limelight. Perhaps Katatonia
might be better off making a more shorter album in the future that focuses on their strengths
rather than expansive nothingness.

Uninteresting and uninspired. Like many have said it feels as if StS have run their course. The production is very stale and the songwriting seems outright random at times. Once you get into a section it changes immediately with no flow or conscious thought of how the song progresses, rather just "riff A then riff B". The band that wrote "Atlas Novus" is nowhere to be seen and it gives the impression that the previous members had a much more impactful role in the songwriting than we'd previously thought. rThe synths sound almost preset-y and are awkwardly levelled in the mix where it feels as if they're clashing with the guitars for the listener's attention. There are some cool moments sprinkled throughout but ultimately this feels like a style over substance release.

2.0 poor
Burial Subtemple/Beachfires
Come on Burial, what's happening here? Past 2 EP's have been so formless, nothing captures the ears, it's just there... Most of it sounds like sound design rather than music. It's like he's grown a phobia of using drums and melody in his music.
