Rating: 8 I was expecting this to be a bit more thrashy. Interesting sound nevertheless, but weird too. Needs some time.

  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.

Rating: 9 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

Rating: 8 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

Rating: 9 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

Rating: 7 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

Rating: 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

Rating: 9 The song "Better Off Dead" gives me chills every time.
Oh, and the rest of the album is pretty damn good too.

Rating: 7 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.
