I was going through the upcoming albums list and this album title made me laugh out loud. And that artwork... wtf were they thinking? Oh well, never really cared about Delain anyway. Good luck fans, hope the music is ok at least.

Even though I am Delain fan since the first ep, I'm still impressed by their evolution. The album isbthe heaviest, the most diverse and absolutely best since April rain. The direction which they took with Human Contradiction is exploading here into totally magnificent release. I mean the guitars, the melodies, vocal lines. Delain establishes their unique sound and since most of the Female fronted band have gone stale, I think we can crown Delain as a new Kings and Queens of the genre.

Don't judge a music album by it's cover! There are many decent albums with awful covers

I was expecting something similar to "We Are the Others" considering the artwork.
Instead this a very diverse sounding album: Heavy in places, lighter in others and experimenting a bit without losing the core of the Delain "sound".

And I'd like to defend the Cover and the title a bit:
At first it might look odd, but judging from the music and lyrical themes, which varies between human relationships, environment and society issues, the title fits the record just right, as do the cover. It's a satire to todays world, taking an over the top approach and making fun of the situation.

After first 5 listens: this is definitely the freshest female fronted metal record I heard in years. 13 songs and almost no fillers (I still have trouble to get in Chemical Redemtpion). AOTY material for me.

And the Combustion...oh man what a track. Just finished headbanging, while chopping onions for the salad.

After 4 listens, I can say that I really like this album. It is a departure (to a certain point) from their previous sound, and that may discourage fans from liking this album. However, I really like the heaviness on the majority of the songs, the heavy use of synthesizers, autotune on some tracks, and Charlotte sounds as great as ever.

None of it is bad but all of it kinda blurs into one for me. I have to say I'm a bit let down but it's still a decently put together album

Here is the main issue this album faces: The best songs get old fast. The rest sounds like filler.

To add to this... one of the album's strongest songs, Legions of the Lost, basically borrows the melody from "Sleepwalker's Dream," which begs the question as to if the band is running out of inspiration.

Not a bad album by any stretch - just a bit of a let down after their run of solid releases.
