Last one was a big step up from their era of mediocrity and simply a solid album all around (maybe a little over-produced.)
I hope it lasts.

While Dystopia was good and a step up from Crucible, it felt like it was missing ... something. Stu alone should make it a good spin but I hope Jon goes for something a little more interesting.

Sounds epic, as always. I'd love to see another concept album which is something IE excels at. Maybe something in the vein of "Horror Story", and several of the Dystopian themed songs on "Dystopia", how they link together with a common element but are not in anyway directly related to each other. I really loved Dystopia and Stu's ability to have both elements of Ripper and Barlow, stoked to hear some new material with him.

Insanely groin-petrifying news! And really, I'd have more to say, yet schizo already said my feelings on it.

Sweet...I hope Stu can ease off on the Barlow impressions and find his own seat within the band. He's got some very strong mid range and falsettos, he needs to stick with that instead of relying on his Barlow-esque baritone

other than that I am UBER excited for this one

I'm really hoping that for the track 'Cthulhu' they don't say it. Otherwise they have no idea about Lovecraft

Awesome news, really liking the direction the band's taken with Stu Block fronting. Dystopia was an excellent album and I don't have much of a doubt that this one will deliver as well.

I hope stu can shine in his one and get away from the barlow impressions that seemed to dominate the last album
he has an awesome medium range and his falsettos just kill!
