Good review, probably would've ended up in the high 80's range if I were rating it. I like it more and more each time I listen to in.
I feel as if this is the first time that Steve Mazur has really stepped up into the lead guitarist's role since he joined the band. Comparing this album with Gravity and Burn Burn, the guitars are much more melodic and he doesn't seem content to just play power chords anymore, which I like. In particular, the solo on "Heavyweight" is one of my favorite 10 seconds of music I've heard in a long time.
