Very good album. Maybe not as great as the last one, but that one set the bar pretty high anyway.
I think the beginning of this one starts out VERY strong, but levels off a bit about halfway through.
I don't think the super long songs help too much.

^ Agreed. It's really good, but it's not quite on the level of the last one to me. Could use a few more rockers for sure. I also kinda wish they had more 4-5 minute songs and fewer 7-10 minute songs.

I really like it, and probably going to be AOTY, or at least top 5, but it's still not as great as LITD. That album was an instant classic, though, IMO, so it was going to be really tough to get to that level again.

I am really enjoying this record. I agree that it may not be as good as the last two (which are a hard act to follow), but it is still one of the best of the year, and I think Pain must be a strong contender for song of the year.

Good, but kind of same song over and over.
