  1. Trail of Dead appear to have dropped the noise, and bought out the tunes.
  2. It's clear that the Trail Of Dead we once knew no longer exists. [Jan 2007, p.139]
  3. So Divided attempts to unify the Austin outfit's operatic songcraft with the urgency of their "Days of Being Wild" to unlock 2003's The Secret of Elena's Tomb EP and overcome the trappings of the previous year's brilliant Source Tags and Codes, from which those days sprung.
  4. Offers a more diverse song mix than one might expect. [18 Nov 2006]
  5. The sound of a maverick band raging against the dying of the light. [Dec 2006, p.132]
  6. Pick your adjective[:] Over-the-top, anthemic, epic.
  7. Its artistic detours are even more jarring than those of Worlds Apart. The good news is that its quality is far less erratic. The bad news is the reason why: it's almost uniformly awful.
