Been a fan since the beginning. 

I've never been disappointed in an album, but what's going on with Jake's vocals? 

I think it's finally going. 

I mean, this isn't a bad album, but it's not their best. Something seems off.

I mean, it's good? but I feel like I've heard this album before 

 

Listened to this band 10+ years and this album just seems very safe

This is juuuuuuuicy from start to finish! Lots of great tracks. Bloodletter is so sick. ABR is so consistently good. They never put out a shit album.

Solid Record. The "cleans" are somewhat tastefully done in this one, so it doesn't bother me too much. Wasn't blown away or stifled on the song 'Lighthouse' --- like everyone else was. Otherwise, this album has some old school abr parts in here that I like. I'll give this one a 7.5/10.

It's not bad, but I feel like I've listened to the same album 20 times already.  I'm not a huge ABR fan, and I don't listen to them that often, but to me this just sounds like a very safe record and doesn't really do anything interesting that they haven't done a million times before.  Bones and Lighthouse were the only songs that stood out to me, and the rest could've been pulled from any other ABR album and I wouldn't have known the difference.

 

For reference, I've listened to all of their past albums over the years, but Found in Far Away Places is the only one I've ever heavily gotten into.  Even Phantom Anthem just really fell flat (Although I loved the first few singles) and I stopped listening to it after a week, and I'm sure the same thing is gonna happen with this album.

Agree, their previous effort seemed like a much bolder move with a lot of exciting new ideas, pushing the boundary of their sound. This one is also very good but feels too safe to me, lots of déjà vu and feels like a bit of a step back.

 

Just taking the single 'Invisible Enemy' says a lot about how bold Phantom Anthem was compared to this release, at least to my ears.

Except I feel like invisible enemy And the frost was great but the rest of that album felt generic and same-y. This album, there’s more variation. There’s more range from jakes vocals as well.

Tend to feel this way a lot also except for 2 songs or so.

Great musicians but a little too....consistent?

Not a metal guy, and this doesn't have the cleans I would look for. that being said, the song bones is pretty good
