Rating: 9 A vastly underrated album. I like it much better than the Spectral Sorrows.

  Review, please?

  I heard this was Dan Swano's personal favorite Edge of Sanity album.

Rating: 8 Better than Spectral Sorrows AND Purgatory Afterglow I'd say. Great production, nice riffs with some good variation and pleasant, but not overused, melodies. Swano sounds great here too.

Rating: 6 I find this one to be mixed bag with some excellent stuff and some decidedly average stuff.

It does show signs of the same brilliance that Purgatory Afterglow and Spectral Sorrows have but they were obviously still shaking off some rather average Death Metal tendencies from their Nothing But Death Remains period.

Completely agree with you on this one. You very nicely articulated what makes this a great record. I can see the appeal of PA, but I don't understand why people would enjoy SS over this one.

Spectral Sorrows appeals more to lowest common denominator types like me with it's groove and accessability.
