    Vague prog touches and thrash influences soon emerge, offering breadth and depth. [Dec 2012, p.109]

    This is an album that can easily be enjoyed for the songs alone, so while you don't necessarily need to sit down with the liner notes (which include an accompanying story written Corey Taylor) to enjoy the album, it does add an extra layer of narrative action that reveals House of Gold & Bones to be an album of surprising depth.
