I was expecting this to be a bit more thrashy. Interesting sound nevertheless, but weird too. Needs some time.
Savor what you feel and what you see
Things that may not seem important now
But may be tomorrow

An ok album. I too was expecting it to be more thrashy, but its ok I guess. I hope no one takes this as a bad thing, but it reminds me of John Bush era Anthrax a litte. It also reminds me a bit of Stone Sour.

Wow... pretty underrated (by the usual MS standards). It's among my top three thrash albums this year and I found it a lot more consistent than, say, My God

I agree with most of you. It's kind of weird and not as trashy as I expected. It's a good album, but not outstanding
I really want to here some intelligent melodic technical brutal shredding relieved by some serene atmospheric unsettling moments

This is a great CD, the production is awesome. Flotsam are not afraid to push the envelope and take chances, but always stay true to their roots! THIS IS A MUST HAVE CD. this band deserves so much more. This cd is in my top 2 of the year

Great production, above average guitarmanship, and powerful vocals that are paired with some of the least inspired lyrics I've ever heard (even freak Kitchen can be a little fun at times). It's really what hurts this album, otherwise everything else is great 7.4/10

When I first listened to this album... I thought it was rather mediocre and I think I actually rated it 7/10. But there was one song that kept me listening... "Blackened Eyes Staring". The vocals in that song were so captivating.

Thing is, I never really gave the album a chance at first, and as I kept listening to that one song , the sound it had that was shared amongst the others allowed me to appreciate the others more and they just grew on me.. and now I f*cking love the entire album!

Afterwards, when I actually took the time to truly appreciate the other songs, I realized that they had some amazing guitar solos, outstanding vocals, memorable lyrics, and heavy riffs that, although were unique on their own, still had that thrash element present.

Favourites ATM: "Blackened Eyes Staring", "Hypocrite", "K.Y.A.", "Black Cloud", "The Cold" (It's hard to choose favourites because I liked almost every song in this album equally)
9/10... excellent

The song "Better Off Dead" gives me chills every time.
Oh, and the rest of the album is pretty damn good too.

The best of modern era Flotsam & Jetsam. They finally got rid of the mediocre groove metal sound they played with in the 90's for Queensryche inspired thrash-prog. Think Nevermore or Communic.
God Dammit Doug! Take off your hat, Night Moves is playing. Don't be a prick man!
