Absolutely Perfect.

A fantastic follow to "Carving Desert Canyons" Every song really takes you on a journey and is well composed. As technical as the music playing obviously is, these guys have made technical beautiful. There is melodic, there is hardcore, there is driven... it has everything you would expect from Scale the Summit.

My only suggestion, "Origin of Species" needs to be longer... i feel like there was more to that song at the ending and then it faded out... kinda sad.

All in all an A+ guys!

A good buy! ...

This album sits safely within the confines of scale the summit, presenting the listener with a spectrum of technical melodic phrases as well as beautifully complex percussion... The composition speaks for itself, however as compared to Carving Desert Canyons? These songs are shorter, less lead-driven, and the clean guitars here sound much more digital than, personally, I would have chosen, and for that reason, the softer sounding material has less of a third dimension than the rest.

I think this album is a little more .. safe.. than Monument, and Carving Desert Canyons.

I also think It could be interesting for them to go back to the loose style that Monument brought us.

Great album.

Thats the best way to describe this band. They have found the perfect balance between technical and melodic guitar playing. Some fanatic guitar players might get angry about that comment, claiming Technical IS the new melodic but, for most people, the crazy time signatures and awkward playing styles of traditional technical playing is dizzying. These guys can show off their amazing guitar skills while still making you feel calm, without adrenaline rushes to punch people or sending you to a mental hospital cause they melted your brain.

Amazing work guys...can't wait to see you in concert again :)
