The Top Ten

1 Alone in the World

The progression throughout is great, with a good mix of slow, sad parts, and fast, technical solos. The final 4 minutes of this song are absolutely breathtaking. The lyrics, while sounding depressing at first glance, still hold a powerful message. The solo at the end is also amazing. - kempokid

2 The City Has No Empathy (Your Sentimental Lie)

It's just such a beautiful song in every way, the vocals are astounding, and the intro is near perfection. The intense emotion put into it is definitely the reason why it's a step above most other songs on the album. - kempokid

3 Vanishing Rites (Tread Softly Little One)

It sounds like a much more 'poppy' song at the start, but I absolutely adore the vocal melody of it. The constant switch between loud and soft is also really nice. The way the song transforms at the halfway mark is also great. - kempokid

4 Colossus

This song is really good at making swearing impactful, as the few times they do it, it really catches you off guard and sounds really angry. Definitely a great song all around. - kempokid

5 Equally Flawed

The piano intro is quite eerie, and the song in general is heavier and more fast paced in general. The keyboard is also used exceptionally. - kempokid

6 Calliope's Son (Don't Ever Look Back)

This is definitely the best of the three instrumentals on the album, as it has a fair amount of variation to it and is just generally entertaining. - kempokid

7 Silence

A nice song in general, focusing quite heavily on the vocals, which are of high quality. - kempokid

8 Singularity

It's a good instrumental, but it really felt like this one could have gone somewhere further. - kempokid

9 Ephemera

I found this one to be somewhat dull in general, we didn't need two 3 minute long instrumentals so close to each other. - kempokid
