    A drop off after the great Worlds Apart and Source Codes. Very concept album and lots of wailing. Listen to song samples before buying

    Absoulute shit compared to Worlds Apart. Not even worth mentioning in the same breath as Source Tags & Codes.

    Nice to see the NME way wide of the mark as usual - Trail of Dead at their peak were never about 'propulsive pop-rock'. This album is a confused, empty and over-produced mess, big on bombast but with no heart whatsoever. Stylus was spot on, So Divided is utter drivel and even worse than Worlds Apart. Trail of Dead have well and truly jumped the shark.

  1. [It] depends less on the band’s gear-smashing antics than on their sense of tunecraft, which isn’t as highly developed.
  2. While they may never reach the heights of their Source Tags & Codes, the band can still push boundaries.
  3. As with most things Trail of Dead, it's bloated where it thinks it's profound.
