Sounds exactly like every album they've ever made, and for that reason, I completely couldn't care less. I have just one album on my iTunes from this band but realistically, I'd be better off just choosing one song and sticking it on repeat. It's not that it isn't aesthetically pleasing, it's just exceptionally uninteresting a decade and five albums later.
A little on the harsh side, Matt? But yes, I do see where you are coming from. I would recommend to listen to the three songs I singled out to see if you'd agree.

One thing I've always wondered about reviews of instrumental albums on here, does the lack of a score for lyrics and vocals make a difference to the overall score?

Good review, agree that they could of done something better, put them selves out there a bit in order to do something new and exciting, dangerous even. They do seem to have just played it safe and done what they always do. Not a bad thing, just nothing exciting.
There is a problem with the scores on the main review page, yeah. It takes an N/A score as a 0, which sucks. So you have to open the actual review to see the actual score.

Maybe, it's nothing personal and certainly isn't an attack on your review, which is perfectly good. Just strikes me that this band receives a lot of easy acclaim and accolades for doing nothing great in a genre full of interesting and diverse artists.
Because within their specific style, they are still better then the rest on a whole? If they don't evolve, thats a different story.

Not worried about you attacking my review I know you well enough mate. hehe.

Great review. It's well written for a user review, minus one flaw at the end:

"The final track “Let Me Back In” sounds like a classic Explosions… song minus the drum beat which has a slight jumpiness to it – it’s hard to describe but it is like an actual beat and not just a percussion piece that compliments the ‘scenic’ qualities of their guitar melodies…these beats still do compliment the melodies beautifully, but they just offer the songs a different angle and drive that was not as apparent on older material "

need to rewrite that beast of sentence. it's not quite a run on, but it definitely doesn't convey the intended meaning well at all.

Overall, great job!
Thanks, was aware of it.

Brilliant album again it was. Thought your review was a bit harsh.
Looking back on it, I feel like I was being generous.
