7/10. This is their first album that has had to really grow on me. Most of the songs are good, but it's their 2nd or 3rd weakest album.

When you call anything with harsh vocals "screamo", it makes as much sense as calling anything with distorted guitar "heavy metal".

If you're a project fan you'll like it but it wasn't as good as "...and the rest will follow." Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it to non-project fans.

I can't believe how much I am enjoying this album. A bunch of the tracks have a real Marilyn Manson feel which is sweet. Lyrics are great as well. I won't rate yet, as I still haven't listened enough.

Its pretty good. The lyrics really stand out assome of Mr. Schwab's best. But theres really only a couple songs that i love, less than theyre other cds. The Butcher, Dark Angel Dragnet, and To Sand We Return are my favorites so far. By the way, what ever happened to Randy's awesome backup vocals? I miss those.

Apparently they are non-existent.

Really solid album. Some really good riffs. I like where this album has steered their sound. The songs kind of blend together in my head in a samey sort of way, but it is a great album to listen to passively and just rock out.

I think the album art work is their worst yet, thought they have never really had great artwork (besides Rival Factions).

I read in an interview with Andrew Schwab that the dull artwork was intentional. I guess it doesn't really matter anymore now that most people download their music.

Anyways I agreed with most of the comments. Not their best cd, but not bad either. Project 86 has never really disappointed me with any of their releases. I have to say Destroyer has become one of my favorite Project 86 songs. Also thought that tracks 2, 5, and 11 were pretty cool. I still gave it an 8

I've decided that this album is flawless. It's agressive, yet catchy, and a ton of fun. Lyrics are great, and so is the music. I really don't find anything wrong with any of the songs.

10/10. It's a pretty much flawless album that everyone should own! I see a good amount of variety on this album that I haven't really seen on any other Project 86 album. I think this is their best album. Now this is what post-hardcore should sound like!
