Sounding great. Fantastic punchy sound - nasty but very listenable, dynamic songwriting, quite technical too to my ears but totally catchy at the same time. Vocals I can give or take; could be a bit lower in the mix but this is already a highlight of the year.

Woah, great stuff. Didn't know about these guys... The question remains though: Is it progressive?

They play at more than one speed, have lyrics about concepts, the drummer I'm pretty sure uses both hands to play the drums and the guitarist doesn't always look at the guitar when he's playing. Verdict = progressive. Maybe even avant-garde at a push.

Their previous record did not do much for me. Hope that this is better.

This is absolutely brilliant. The vocals take some getting used to I guess, but for a Weakling fan it's not that difficult.
I don't get how anyone could possibly rate this a 5 or 6 as some users have..

The vocals are cringe-worthy...sounds like some of Pensées Nocturnes'

Instrumentally, however, it's a pretty decent album...shame about the vocals really...
