The Top Ten

1 This Shattered Symphony

Definitely containing the best melodies in the album, with some wonderful sounding guitar work, and have a darker kind of sound to it that lends itself slightly more to the poor production. - kempokid

2 Pearl of the Stars

Definitely a lovely ballad, managing to sound quite beautiful, especially the small solo, which nicely ties this track together, and makes it one of the few times on the album where a song is quite distinctive and interesting to listen to. - kempokid

3 The Broken

I always find the opening songs to this band's albums to be really great and anthemic in nature, always being able to create epics that are a blast to listen to. I do find the issue with this album as a whole to be the somewhat muddy production, which takes away from almost every track on it, but even with that, many of the compositions are still of high quality. - kempokid

4 Guns of Summer

Easily the most divisive song the band has written, as it utilises a great deal of electronic elements to make something that is far different to their other material. I personally find the intense, dense nature of the track to be really cool, and find it to be very good, despite some questionable vocal melodies. - kempokid

5 When Skeletons Live

Another song with some great riffs and vocal melodies, definitely one of the songs that sound a bit more like some slightly earlier work by the band, but definitely one of the better ones on the album, despite the fact that I once again feel as if it goes on for slightly too long.. - kempokid

6 World of Lines

This makes me think of a better version of Gravemakers and Gunslingers, having a straightforward, fast paced nature to it, but in this case, the riffs are much better, and the song is just overall a much more entertaining listen, but still not a very involved one. - kempokid

7 The Black Rainbow

While the mix has the vocals too far back, and the song meandering somewhat, I still find this to be a pretty decent song in terms of the soundcapes made, but still find it a somewhat lackluster way to end an already poor album. - kempokid

8 Here We are Juggernaut

A very straightforward song in general without much to interest me. Certain moments do display some decent vocal ability, but as a whole, I simply find this to be a slightly above average song. - kempokid

9 In the Flame of Error

I find the instrumentation, especially the way the drums and bass perfectly work off one another to give it a cool sound that reminds me somewhat of Apollo I : The Writing Writer. My issue with it once again falls upon the fact that I just find the song to drag slightly by the end. - kempokid

10 Made Out of Nothing (All that I Am)

An unfortunately repetitive song that honestly drags quite a lot by the end. I find it to be quite a dull song in general, but not a completely incompetent one - kempokid
