    It's proof that there's plenty of life left in its creators. [Aug 2017, p.83]

    It’s very much the work of a band who are still capable of delivering the goods even after 17 years, while showing the fresh-faced up and comers a thing or two.

    Shane Told's lyrics cut deep as usual but his vocals have too many treatments applied to it here and come off over-produced. If you're looking for vintage Silverstein though, "Mirror Box" has you covered. It gets a bit too poppy later on with "Cut and Run" and "The Afterglow" but by that time you know what you got yourself into. A nostalgic trip that should be enjoyed for what it is--a look back at the salad days.

    If listeners can battle the overused simile, then it is not difficult to find the record likeable, even amidst the unforgivable whoas that occasionally penetrate the background (“Cut and Run”, “Ghost”).

    The result is a collection of undignified Pierce The Veil-lite songs that are fitted with all the bells and whistles, but absolutely none of the quality that makes that band successful. [8 Jul 2017, p.52]

A truly amazing album, and this is coming from someone who has been mixed on their discog up until now. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoyed their heavier stuff. Expand
