It was okay but nothing groundbreaking, and kind of an embarrassing followup to the likes of Deconstruction and Ghost. Still, I enjoy it when Devin sounds like he's having fun with his job and it really chimed through on this, but I was hoping for a little more of Deconstruction and Ghost influences and instead it felt more like an extended version of Addicted!.

It was really disappointing. Dull, lifeless, insipid, shallow garbage. They had, maybe, 3 good tracks and that was it.

I enjoyed the rerecording of Kingdom, tho.

****, I really got into it. Really into More!, Grace, Kingdom... there's one or two I don't care for, but I like the themes in this one. Really dug it. About on par with Deconstruction.

I really enjoyed it when it leaked back around early September but besides that weekend and following week, I don't think I've really listened to it. It hasn't dominated my listening like Deconstruction did last year, but it's still a good album and I'd put it on par with Acellerated Evolution, making it one of the more poppy albums, but also really accessible for new fans.
