    I must say now that I am still a great MuDvAyNe fan. They have influenced me in ways that i'm still exploring. In L.D 50, I am continuously finding more and more new, exciting, and amazing things that make me realize just how great this band is. The album has great meaning to me and is one of my all time favorite pieces of music. For that reason alone, I truly feel let down by their I must say now that I am still a great MuDvAyNe fan. They have influenced me in ways that i'm still exploring. In L.D 50, I am continuously finding more and more new, exciting, and amazing things that make me realize just how great this band is. The album has great meaning to me and is one of my all time favorite pieces of music. For that reason alone, I truly feel let down by their new album. It lacks the depth, intricacy, and pure emotional feeling that LD50 had. After getting to track 10, it feels like the band had run out of ideas and was getting tired. I understand that truly great music just can't be popped out of thin air, that it must have feeling behind it, and I feel that MuDvAyNe shouldn't have rushed this album. I can only hope that these four fine musicians can understand that they automatically set their standards exceptionally high with the masterpiece LD50, and now they must try to keep up to those standards. But I keep faith in the fact that great music can still exist in my time, that it all won't eventually be corrupted by money or fame or laziness or underachieving attitudes or whatever nasty powers there are. MuDvAyNe, take some time to listen to L.D. 50 and then take a good hard look at your new album and try to truthfully say that you are proud of it. Expand

    The End is rather ordinary--severe, belligerent riffs and vocals that sound as though singer Chud gargles molten lava. [#12, p.148]
  2. While the group attacks things with great velocity and singer Chud shreds his larynx at regular intervals, the always difficult follow-up album features actual melodies and mature textures that make the band's eventual transformation into a progressive rock band nearly inevitable.
