Unfortunately this has grown in the opposite direction for me. Solid album and enjoyable, really, but a bit too same-samey throughout I feel. Their previous ones were much more diverse and interesting.

They got it right this time, their best work IMO, better than the well received previous album.

Good melodic progressive rock. Not a single song is boring. Loved this album.

I politely disagree very much. This album isn't as memorable as Applause...

Maybe more spins will change my mind.

I hope I find time to listen to them some more.
I may change my point of view.

First time listening to this band. These Black Claws is a solid track and it made me spin this multiple times. Still growing on me. Will rate it later.
