When I first listened to this CD, I thought it was amazing; heavy songs, great solos, and even a ballad! Unfortunatly, after multiple listens, I realized that this isn't different than anything else they've done. Though I do think that this album contains some of the best solos that Tony has ever done (my favorite being on Re-Align, where he takes a change and doesn't use the wah-wah pedal at all), that's really the only thing that they have going for them. All the songs sound similar and the same old lyrics of "I hate you" and "my life's f----ed up" are present. What's more, they put all the songs with the solos at the beginning of the CD and there's really not that much the songs have to offer without them. The ballad, "Serenity", although more melodic is really not that different sounding than "Voodoo" or "Spiral" from their first two CD's. Though I wouldn't recommend buying it or multiple listens, I would suggest borrowing it and listening to it once or twice as it is pretty cool for the first couple of listens.
