    On The Flood the transitions are so effortless, so seamless, that what emerges is a near-perfect example of how to marry potentially ill-fitting musical elements in stunningly effective fashion.

    The Flood, in contrast [to its self-titled debut], is a genuine statement of artistic purpose. [Jul 2011, p.110]

    The Flood, despite all of its familiar trappings, manages to breathe (as in forcibly inflate) some new life into the genre.
  4. Because the band took the songs from Carlile's solo sessions and integrated them with the songs the band wrote during the front man's absence, The Flood's final product lacks some cohesiveness.

    Throughout, his sandpapered larynx lends a satisfying serrated edge here, only occasionally undermined by incongruous metalcore balladeering and the odd interchangeable riff here and there. [2 Jul 2011, p.52]

    If you're a fan of Of Mice & Men then there's no doubt you'll love this album. For those of you metal fans who haven't heard of this band this is an excellent album to start with. What impressed me most with this album is how the band managed to flawlessly transition between angry screams to melodic rock several times in one song. Even more impressive is how they made it feel natural. It really shows you how much talent these guys have. They use it to their advantage to with their lyrics by using the two different styles to show two different sides of the song. The Flood is an impressive and most importantly enjoyable CD that's worth the purchase. Expand
