Band members are expendable. Music will always find a way.

Definitely one I'm looking forward to. Hope it will be as good as the previous one.

Arrangements, production and the overall sound on this record are great. But the Pink Floyd/The Sisters Of Mercy/Ulver influences are too dominant on this album for me to fully enjoy it. I actually played The Division Bell and Shadows of the Sun straight after this one. Great songs thou

I really liked it. "Lost" and "Everything I Say" are such great tracks.

I'm getting really excited now. I will probably give it a listen either today or tomorrow.

The closing track is really evocative

If you mean the Bauhaus cover, it is one of my favourite tracks ever and CBP did a fantastic job with it. It is very difficult to cover such a classic in a way that gives the song a whole new character.

This album is so good. People into post-, prog, goth, alt, and good music in general regardless of genres, give it a listen. I can't recommend it enough.

I meant the one before that actually, sorry; I thought the cover was a bonus track for some reason

It makes more sense actually, I suppose I should have guessed which one you meant. The word "evocative" fits the penultimate track a lot more than the the cover of "She's In Parties".

This, to me, is their best since I, Vigilante (which amusingly also suffered from closing covers that didn't really fit the rest of the material). Great sound and fantastic atmosphere on this one.

Seeing that you meant "The Invisible Past", I couldn't agree more. Incredible stuff. I thought Deftones had my vote locked up for Alternative this year, but I'm not sure now...
