    Evolving and changing their core sound has always been natural for Trivium, with every new record we've been given a new experience, whetherEvolving and changing their core sound has always been natural for Trivium, with every new record we've been given a new experience, whether bad or good. Thankfully In Waves is a step forward for the band, the songs do not posses the shredding guitar work of previous records but the songs themselves are crafted with such care that the their quality really shines through. Just listen to songs such as "watch the world burn" or "Inception of the end" using YouTube and it becomes apparent. Overall a strong effort which will satisfy most fans of Trivium but will also alienate some as the new sound continues to push Trivium further and further away from their roots, which for some, will be a big disappointment. A good record that deserves to be added to your collection. Full Review »

In Waves is a great album, a must buy with 18 solid tracks. HamWallet I couldn't have said it better myself. Im tired of clowns like Purple getting on here leaving crappy reviews on good talented bands. Purple you suck go home tonight and watch Daniel The Wizard your favorite movie right? Full Review »
