on my second listen through. red giant is one of my favorites tracks of the decade and their best song since private hell. that riff is nasty as fuck and the harmonies are top tier aic. lyrics are right up my alley too. nice and apocalyptic.

Ran through it yesterday night, first listen. Really impressed and kinda relieved actually, I had feared the doom and gloom of tdpdh would be present here. I’m hearing some Facelift-esque material and something newish also. Upon first listen the album is lacking proper “hits” but sounds like a solid quality album throughout. Never Fade, Red Giant and Fly are favs so far.

Been soaking this in the past few days. Hell of an album, but still hesitant to call this better or worse than tdpdh

Favs are red giant, fly, deaf ears blind eyes, and never fade

I think maybe and fly are two of their worst tracks in their entire catalog. Red giant, never fade, drone, and the one you know are the best. I can't stand the chorus for so far under. Gets on my nerves. Verses are cool though. rainier fog and debe are middle of the road, though I like debe more. all I am is meh for a closer. Sounds more like a middle of the album track to me.

bgwtb 9/10
tdpdh 7.5

Every song is good on this record. They all seem to blend in nicely. Would like to hear some heavier material but these songs are good enough.
