After listening to this I felt compelled to go back to their last few albums. Declaration and TGF will be what I will always remember BT for, imo they are metal gems in their own right. I was looking forward to something similar after the first single, but unfortunately the first half of the album is just good. My complaints are similar to what others have mentioned, with the cleans being a bit too present but I personally enjoy the build up from the weaker songs to their better songs at the end. No one and slave will be a killer tracks live. Reunion is very reminiscent of Declaration so my love for it is definitely nostalgic.The ending is another great ending song, just behind sister charlatan and distortion devotion, but overall the album doesn't have that same emotional punch as their last 3 outings.
Hopefully the better quality will display the synths and guitar work better, so I will wait to give my final judgment until then. It might not be their best but Im just glad theyre back
