    Heard a few tracks like New Devil recently...this is actually pretty good. I just had to alter my expectations a bit, it's more subtle than the big dynamics on the first album. It's definitely not djent anymore, but I think we can all agree that the tone is becoming pretty overdone. I can understand why they shifted direction. Hit/miss, but it's good experimentation...predicting that it'll be a transition album of sorts.

    Allure, Evolution, Patience standout.. Last three songs are great as well. I do agree with you guys when you say there's something wrong. I give the blame to variety - the album hardly changes - it sounds great and it's played wonderfully - the musicianship and the quality is there, but too much of a good thing sometimes it's bad. I guess this is the case.

    v - you're right, and most of the songs suck anyways... WMBB was way better. Plus I never got the copy I pledged for lol. maybe, just maybe I'll appreciate it more when I get my CD. the digital copy they sent me has some annoying clicks, and don't merge together.

    I think the main problem with Guiding Lights is, that, although this genre they are in (djent/modern prog) was mostly listened by teenagers for couple of years, Guiding Lights is an album that is directed to old farts like me nearing their 30s'. You can feel the Tompkins influence on this one - overall - this is old men progressive rock n roll - full of thoughts, reconsiderations, thinking about life - change of direction from BWN. I love it thou.

    Blinding White Noise clearly better for me than Guiding Lights. Though Guiding Lights has its moments too. Allure and Evolution are sick! I like this album, but its a bit too "soft" for me.

    Guiding Lights album is a 10/10 a magical masterpiece.

    more like dan tompkins & band. obvious difference to the last album, where the music was already finished before the vocals were added. so if you don't go in expecting more of that, you'll be fine. that said, i would have prefered a bit more skyharbor in "guiding lights".

    Yeah getting kind of sick of all the forced spoken word samples in all these prog metal releases. It is done WAY better in the end section of Guiding Light and middle part of Kaikoma though! Really drags you in the ambience.

    The stuff I've heard from the new album seem like they went overly ambient...Uneven Structure comes to mind. I'll get around to Guiding Lights after breaking in Bloodstone & Diamonds, though.

    the spoken track on Halogen is terrible and annoying... ruined my first listen. haha. at least separate that shit.

    It's missing the strong choruses from Blinding White Noise, and those epic moments like in the songs "Celestial" or "Aurora". None of the new songs stand out like that.... "Miracle" is pretty good though.

    Not feeling the new album... not sure what it is. I think I'm finally tired of hearing Dan Tompkins on everything. It's all a bit much.

    And whoever said it was boring is clearly showing signs of unevolving. :B

    They really weren't kidding about Evolution. They even named a song the same name to further their claim and I must say the new album really backs it up.
