    Cathartic and emotional give and release has always been the primary driving force behind Circa Survive. This album showcases not only their honing of that craft, but artistic maturity, and it's made for the best output of their career.

    I am not sure why no one is pointing out that this album sounded like it was produced and recorded by some kid in his basement. The violent mashing of the instruments completely overpowers the vocals by Anthony Green. His vocal talent was something I always loved in Circa Survive and his previous bands. This release is by far the worst display of his talent out of anything I've everI am not sure why no one is pointing out that this album sounded like it was produced and recorded by some kid in his basement.

This release is by far the worst display of his talent out of anything I've ever listened to. Perhaps I just streamed a bunk copy, but unlikely since I went to RollingStone.com. I understand they were trying to do something different with this cd and I respect that; I just wish it was recorded properly and didn't make my ears bleed. Expand

    They offer no hits or immediately accessible anthems, but when they do engage, they show why they're beloved of so many. [25 Aug 2012, p.54]

    The band's fourth album sees them further stepping away from their Warped Tour roots to craft a disc that's teeming with emotion without falling on emo clich├ęs.
