The Top Ten

1 Water's Edge

The intro is very melodic and quite beautiful. This is more reminiscent of their first album, where a great deal of the songs had a similar kind of sound to this. The bass is also really good. The way it gets heavier in the second half also makes this an awesome song. - kempokid

2 All is Quiet by the Wall

The way this transitions from Thief is absolutely amazing and it has one of the best intros in the album, with some highly technical guitar work. The chorus with the backing vocals is extremely powerful and really makes it feel like a war is going on, which is what I believe is what the lyrical content is about. Definitely a worthy closer to the album. - kempokid

3 A Gift to Afterthought

The intro and outro to this song are absolutely amazing, with the soft beginning to the progression of a couple of nicely heavy riffs. The outro contains some amazing vocals. - kempokid

4 Old Cracks in New Earth

The intro riff is absolutely crushing compared to anything else that they've done. Once everything settles down after an intense solo, aspects of previous songs begin appearing, beginning to tie the album together. I like this instrumental much more than any of them on the first album. - kempokid

5 Dark Hair Down

A very heartfelt, emotional song with some more heavy bits, nothing much else to say, it's a great song. - kempokid

6 Into the White

While the song starts off sounding somewhat dull, the moment it begins to ramp up, it becomes an excellently beautiful song. The song also more or less explodes by the end. - kempokid

7 Atlas

The main draw of this song is that amazing solo near the end that builds back up into the chorus. I also love the the main riff. - kempokid

8 Thief

Just a quiet little interlude as well as nice transition to the final song on the album. - kempokid
