After listening to this album in full over 10 times, I must disagree which is rare since I typically think Drew is spot on.... I loved TDS first 2 full lengths. Thought the musicianship was great, emotionally charged and just melodramatic to listen to, which I love. The thing that I simply cannot get into on this record is the vocal performance. I typically love emotional yells, etc. but it is way to excessive for me. I feel like the whole concept of singing was completely thrown out the window on this record. Call it whatever you like, but its just not for me.
Sadly I agree. The revisited version of Sins they released was awesome though! The vocals were slowed down and sang pretty cleanly.
