Almost through "Unreachable" now and it seems to be a very solid start to an album. Can't wait to hear the rest.

What I found with this album was you need to turn it way the hell up. I crank the volume to about 150% what I usually listen to other albums at. I really hate Song to the Sirens for some reason, but the middle really shines. Ah Yom at the end is pretty solid track. Besides that, the rest is hit or miss like OP said. It's best to listen to loud on a rainy day when you're all alone. =D Or out of heroin or whatever haha
