"Simply put, this is the best CD I have heard since "Reign in Blood" or "Slaughter of the Soul," and it gets better with every listen. I can't take it out of my CD player. It's absolutely unbelievable. A true work of old-skool-metal art. This makes all Nu-Metal bands sound like Britany Spears (although, that's what they sound like anyway). True Metal LIVES in this CD. Buy it now!!!!!"
Is this The Haunted?

"A definate change from the traditional Haunted sound. It's not nesisarily a bad change, but a change nontheless. Those looking for that Haunted sound won't find it on every track, but it's still there."
The Dead Eye: A balance of thrash and aesthetics.

"First of all, you have to take your listening with an open mind. This varies a bit from former albums by The Haunted. For experimenting in slower, melodic, aesthetic music, they do it well. The songs are not as intricately written, but the performance as a whole is their best to date. The recording sound is both the best of any of their albums, and the fullest and warmest sound to come from producer Tue Madsen. Although the album has more clean vocals than in the past, Peter Dolving sounds more confident than before, and his melodies actually fit the music (unlike on Revolver). The addition of experimentation slows the overall tempo of the album. For being slower songs, they are really well executed. And none of their past albums have had 100% blazing fury from start to finish. The change-up accents a nice variance of mood. My favorite tracks are The Medication, The Prosecution, The Shifter, and The Stain. Moderate tempo songs, such as The Failure, and The Drowning are also pretty awesome in contrast. The only songs I didn't care for at all were The Fallout (due to use of synthetic drums), and the vocal melodies on The Medusa. This album could have potentially been their best if the ratio of thrash hymns outweighed the new style, but unfortunately only 4 tracks are overtly driving (leaving a rather uneven balance). But overall, this is still a great album and one of the best releases of 2006. All I could ask for is a more balanced thrash ratio on a future album."
