  1. It’s a different darkness this time out from the Twilight Sad, but eventually you still find yourself missing the light.

    Their heart is evident; they need to find their voice. [Oct 2009, p.115]

    Compellingly bleak is a tough mood to sustain, however, and tracks sucj as 'Interrupted' edge them toward generic stadium territory. [Nov 2009, p.112]
  4. Under The Radar

    Despite some genuinely striking imagery, Forget The Night Ahead can't help but feel like a disappointment after the band's thrilling debut. [Fall 2009, p.67]
  5. The tempestuous atmosphere is too imposing not to impress; and yet, this isn't an entirely satisfactory album.
  6. 50
    Moments of transcendence occasionally emerge from the murk, but not often enough.
  7. I remember listening to the new songs and really enjoying them, but wishing the sound wasn’t so thick and muddy sounding. It’s a production problem that plagues this album all over.

It displays charm, delicacy, sorrow and anger in the same old ways; the flame is intact. Full Review »

I love this bands I've been listening to this album for a few weeks now and I must say I like it just as much as their first album. I love this bands sound. The album really sucks me in. I've been writing papers for classes I'm in to this album and it really does surround you in a good way. Can't wait to hear more from this band. Scotland is delivering some very interesting bands as of late. Full Review »
