    With Lost Songs, it's rekindled the raw, unflinching spirit that, a decade ago, placed the group among rock's elite.

    'Lost Souls' is so preposterously raucous it should have the record industry running scared at the point of a pitchfork.

    Luckily, the melodic wall of noise crashes through the more heavy-handed moments. [2 Nov 2012, p.68]

    Lost Songs ain't a new direction for ToD. Far from it. But it's a frenetic, committed album oozing passion at every turn, and the world would be poorer without it.

    Lost Songs is brash and sincere, a caterwauling beast of chunky guitar chords and drums that never give you a chance to breathe, and in its best moments is as fiery and hot-blooded and rousing as anything off of those earlier albums fans are always pining for.

    Lost Songs splits the difference between some of the more overly emotive/dramatic Trail of Dead featured on recent albums, and the frenetic, exciting Trail of Dead of its the early years.

    With Lost Songs, Trail Of Dead certainly have their hearts in the right place; sadly, though, that's the best one can really say about this album.
