"stop before it's too late, and we've destroyed it all" will be one of my favorite songs for years to come. Bleeding is a luxury is also above Atreyu's standards. This is a kick ass album. It's a mix of "The Curse" and "LSPA". There music in there for everybody.
The number of negative comments and comments comparing it to previous albums has me convinced of the shallow musical perception of the people leaving them. Not their "best?" "Better" than Lead Sails? Those terms are subjective. This album, as an album, is great. Comparing it to Atreyu's other albums is a waste because the band has changed its sound progressively for the last three albums running. It is neither "better" nor "worse" than the other four. Additionally, calling an album "commercial" or calling the band 'sellouts" essentially marks you as an ignorant poseur.
Excellent album by an excellent and consistently progressive band. I'd recommend this happily to anyone who asked.
