As someone who has ALWAYS adored Disturbed, despite many falling off after each album cycle progressed...I have to say, I'm not exactly feeling this one. There are almost no heavy songs at all. I LOVE their ballads/soft songs, but these weird radio rock x1,000 ones are underwhelming for me, personally. Lyrics/messages are great as usual, Draiman's definitely doing some new vocal styles and stuff on this album (to which some land better than others)...but honestly, this album isn't as special as I thought it'd be. Maybe it'll grow on me. Never thought I'd feel this way about a Disturbed album. Whelp still my favorite band, though. Was hoping for a much heavier album mixed with an occasional ballad to contrast. Instead, it's soft/hard rock with even softer ballads to...not really even provide much contrast at all. Oh well.
All of this being said, my favorite tracks are certainly "A Reason to Fight', "Already Gone", and "Uninvited Guest (Bonus Track)".
