    The fourth album from the progressive metal/rock band from Indianapolis. These guys have had an incredible evolution, and this album continues that trend.







    1. “Monochrome (Passive)”
    2. “Godspeed”
    3. “Reimagined”
    4. “Clairvoyant”
    5. “The Center”
    6. “Absolve”
    7. “Relapse”
    8. “Return to Earth”
    9. “Monochrome (Pensive)”

    I just got my advance of this, and it may quite possibly end up my AOTY. And progressive metal is very rarely a genre I'm heavily into. They took a HUGE step forward with this. It's seriously so amazing.

    Never really gave this band a chance before now, but they way you're hyping this record, seems like now might be the time to start.

    It's by far their least heavy album, but it works so well. The closer in particular is so different and unexpected.

    hmmm. I'm usually into heavier stuff, but I'm interested to hear this album nonetheless. I listened to a couple of the tracks posted above and it sounds good.

    Definitely. There's virtually no screams on this album, it has a different feel for sure.

    I'm here for it! Michael's got a killer voice so I'm all for him showcasing it instead of screams

    Looks like weve got better quality now for anyone who was waiting. Ive listened to the album once so far and its definitely very good. Not sure how good yet though

    yeah good okay

    These guys kinda fell off for me with their last album (it was great, just didn't have a lasting effect on me), but I'm about halfway through this one for the first time and I must say, it's really good!

    funny, I had no idea this was coming and I explored this band at the beggining of the week

    preferred the first album but will definitely give this one a spin

    Man the closer is really growing on me. The first time I was hoping for a bigger finish, but gosh now the second time it sounds so pretty and well placed
