Kills me to say but this was pretty underwhelming. A lot softer than I expected and nothing really rips besides the 1st song. Good for them trying for radio success but it's just not the sound I want from them 

Haven't they always played radio type music? This album really seems to follow their usual formula which doesn't bother me personally.

I am a HUGE SOTY fan. I think this album is the kind that will grow on people as you listen to it over and over. I can see how it's not as bangin' as previous LP's. Is this their best work...probably not...but it is definitely a great album that will be listened to over and over. And personally i love the little 80's vibe some of the tracks have.

Half of this album is fairly great as far as SOTY or regular alt.rock goes, then the other half is absolute filler to decent tunes. My Home was hard not to skip, very bad. Noticed that most of the intros/outros are super cool, the 4th song (interlude) was also a damn cool interlude. Closer is impressive :)

This band is growing up with 90's kids, no matter what I keep appreciate what they do, this album really amazing.

Nothing wrong with being Into Anberlin, fucking band was great and singer is top tier.

Agree with the Anberlin sound, likely because of Aaron Sprinkle..def wouldn't say it rips tho

Solid record, maybe it's not a material you would call album of the year but it's definitely story of the year

You weirdos expecting some heavy post hardcore album lol, sorry. This is a damn good SOTY album though.

Love it! what i like the most is that there is still that '00 emo vibe which many similar bands lost in their newer releases, and they found a way to make it sound more actual. Respect!

I think this has been my favorite, if not, one of my favorite releases of 2017. The only album that has a chance of beating it now is Eminem's Revival. Then 2018, i feel like i can tell the new ETF album will be my favorite
