The Top Ten

1 Psychopomp

Absolutely my favourite song on the album, the riffs are near perfection in particular sections, especially the bridge right before the chorus, which I find to be amazing. The creepy dialogue at the end is also kinda cool. - kempokid

2 Blue Automatic

I greatly enjoy the vocal melodies here, especially of the first 30 seconds or so. The orchestrations are at some of their absolute best here, and really bring this song to amazing heights, along with a couple of rhythmic elements that could be found in djent, giving the song something else quite unique about it. - kempokid

3 Mr. Invisible

I really love the danceable nature of the song, and especially the main, driving beat, backed up by some extremely funky instrumentation. The violins used in the more heartfelt, emotional sections is also incredible. - kempokid

4 The Amateur Arsonist's Handbook

While a great deal of this song sounds generally great, similar to a Coheed and Cambria song, the violin solo in it was absolutely amazing, and definitely elevates this song a lot. Then the final 20 seconds makes sure to finish off the song in an amazing way. - kempokid

5 Caverns

The backing instrumentals during the verses sound extremely cool, having a strong bassline, and good use of clarinet. I love the more subtle sounding horn sections, as they really add a lot of depth to the song without drawing attention away from other elements. The guitar solo is also a nice touch. - kempokid

6 Need More Input

The transition from the soft intro to the more bombastic sections of the song are amazing and do not fail to put a smile on my face. Even with this, the song still feels considerably more mellow compared the rest of the album, providing a nice break from the near wall of sound that some of the previous songs approached. - kempokid

7 A Wolf in Cheap Clothing

While I find the chorus to be absolutely amazing, with perfect orchestrations to back up the exceptionally powerful melody, I do find certain sections to be somewhat less memorable. I find it doesn't matter too much in this case though, as these less memorable sections are still great, just not quite as amazing as the chorus. - kempokid

8 Rube Goldberg Variations

An amazing instrumental piece that gives a variety of instruments their time to shine, especially the percussion, with some exceptional drum fills scattered throughout. - kempokid

9 The Somnambulist

The staccato of the horns sounds exceptional, creating a really cool sound due to the combination of them and the guitar. I find the chorus to be extremely good, as it is a good display of Salvatore's vocal ability, and has a great melody. - kempokid

10 Prologue... A Faint Applause

The vocal harmonies used are astounding, and the song is extremely dense and in depth for a two minute introductory track. - kempokid
