    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.

    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.
