I might get bashed for this but in a way i believe that the member rating is somewhat more accurate than the author rating... not to disrespect the author at all but for some reason this album isn't as good as their previous release in my opinion. I love As I Lay Dying I still listen to An Ocean Between Us frequently from beginning to end. However I got The Powerless Rise when it came out and maybe listened to the album as a whole twice and that was pretty much the extense of it being played on my ipod. Even after a month of not listening to the cd i started listening to it tonight, but ended up switching to an different album after a song and a half. There is just something about it that after a minute or so of it being played it becomes boring no matter what song I play from the album. Its really a shame since this band is really talented.

but again the amount of people thinking this is the band's best work so far(and IT IS) and the people who think it sucks is very lopsided

Oh I bet Im not saying that its bad in any regard lol I still would recommend it to people, however for me there is something about the album that i get really bored with. Maybe the production is not doing it for me, even though the production got a really good score. Im not sure

I often feel like that when an band releases an album right after one that I loved to death. Even if it's good it takes me a while to get into it because I want to be blown away like I was with the last album. Just one of those things I think.
