Staff review by
The past Between The Buried And Me albums saw the band slowly improving on their trademark style, honing their skills in small iterations and progressively becoming more interesting. Alaska, with its intelligent song writing and occasional bursts of genius, already seemed like it could be the pinnacle of the band's evolution; however, this is just because we haven't heard Colors at that point. It only takes the first two minutes of this album to completely shatter all expectations and leave the listener wide eyed and with a gaping chasm where their mouth used to be.

White Walls is such an awesome song; this part drives me wild:

"This is all we have when we die.
It's what's left of us when we die."

Seeing them finish their set last year with Selkies/Viridian/White Walls and listening to White Walls right now just makes me so eager to go to a gig if and when it's possible again

If this album is so great how come there's no Colors II?

Do you think if the heart keeps on shrinking
One day there will be no heart at all?

Very good but not as excellent as the 8.8/10 rating suggests IMO.

'Informal Gluttony' is a masterpiece and easily the standout song of the album. The rest of the tracks are just a bit too one-dimensional for me.
