  • So glad to see reasonable comments around here. It's always unpleasant to see people attacking the latest artists' albuns just because they've changed their style. I only hate this when the artist in question becomes a sellout and start doing easy shit, without taking it serious, just to sell. But, come on... this album is really great. It may be different, but it's still a hard album to swallow. The guys surely worked hard on this and the least you can give them is RESPECT.
  • my favorite
  • This album is pretty awful oh damn... I listen this equally there is something nice /////// The Movie on Your Eyelids is a different story epic song
  • I don't blame anyone for have their minds closed. This is a great album, such amazing like the previous ones.
  • There's always a controversy when the new album from any artist comes out. This one is not an exclusion. But I think that this album has some damn good songs on it, that's for sure. And overall it's not a bad album at all. Of course it's not as dark as their previous albums, but why the hell should it be? Brian always writes songs from his heart, and if he feels like writing something more bright and positive - he will. That's called BEING HONEST.
  • I'm absolutely in love with this album. Kitty Litter ♥ Battle For The Sun ♥ Julien ♥
  • everytime I listen LLL, I realize that BFTS isn't that bad
  • Wow, and here I thought I was the only one who loves BFTS, it's nice to know I was wrong :d Amazing, especially Julien and The Movie on Your Eyelids
  • This album is obviously different from previous one but it doesn't mean that it's worse
