The Top Ten

1 Mediocrity Wins

Undoubtedly my favourite song by the band at this point in time. I love everything about this song, from the awesome, spacey intro and cool vocal style, making everything sound like some sort of chant, to the incredible bass, everything about this song just perfectly falls into place. I love how by the third appearance of the vocals, they've changed from eerie sounding chanting to all out screaming. - kempokid

Awesome song! - Metal_Treasure

2 Painful Detour

I don't have much to say about this song, I just find all of the elements of it to perfectly come together to make a great, cohesive song that is all around amazing. - kempokid

3 Forced Entry

I like how diverse this song is, having both some crushingly heavy moments, and being able to then have it become a beautiful, layered falsetto within a fairly short amount of time. As well as this, the more ambient sections add a lot to it, making this 10 minute epic consistently engaging. - kempokid

4 Thorn

The horn followed by the amazing, clean melodic line is an absolutely amazing intro, quite possibly one of the best ones by the band as a whole. While the song in general is just great, things really get taken up a notch when the harsh vocals are followed by a surprising, yet still cool trumpet section. - kempokid

5 Restless

I find this song to be extremely good in terms of melody and the guitar. It has a very modern edge to it all around, and I appreciate the fact that the entire song is essentially one big crescendo, constantly building up excellently. - kempokid

6 Mb. Indifferentia

I love the extremely melancholic tone to this song, and it manages to be a ballad that is both beautiful and engaging, as I often find many ballads from bands such as this to fall somewhat flat. The emotion displayed here is absolutely amazing. - kempokid

7 Bilateral

I really like how powerful the vocals are throughout the track, with some really nice guitar work, and an awesome, catchy chorus. - kempokid

8 Cryptogenic Desires

A much more instantly enjoyable song, but such a fun one nonetheless, with the wonderful, constant beat, and the awesomely energetic chorus. - kempokid

9 Acquired Taste

Not as keen on this compared to some other songs, I find some of the melodic sections to feel quite awkwardly written, and while there is an overall power to it, I just don't get too much enjoyment from the song. - kempokid

10 Waste of Air

Definitely a few degrees heavier than any other song on the album, and I don't mind that as the riffs sound pretty great. Definitely a weaker song of the album in my opinion, but still great nonetheless. - kempokid
