Omg so gooooooooddd
Most underwhelming album by A7X
The decrease in creativity from the self-titled album is tremendous, and feels like a copy of Metallica. Metallica is not very good at all (at least after Master of Puppets) and for a band as talented as A7X to release this is supremely disappointing. The slower, less intense tempo along with unipressive lyrics and instruments were clearly inspired by the Black Album, one of the other most disappointing albums of all time, behind maybe Injustice for All. At least The Stage, they're best album yet, made up for this train wreck and set them back on their path.
It's good but it's a little slow paced along with Arin's simple drum beats
The song Planets speaks well to the narrative of the band. However, the bonus track St. James plays like an Avenged Sevenfold classic circa City of Evil. Those to songs really carry the album in terms of interest and drive.

Excellent A7X Album!
By Kristen Kunz
This is another great Avenged album! Great stuff like all the rest! Planets and Acid Rain are my particular favorites! Worth a listen and purchase!!
Finally worth buying
By original recman
The kept the dopey prog-rock elements to a minimum and finally put out something worth buying. In the past their sense of humor wasn't enough to overcome the proggy pretentions even if it did make the records worthy of a few listens; the humor is mostly gone here but it isn't needed this time around.
My favorite song on this album is Sad But True...

I've been listening to these extremely talented guys since Waking the Fallen. And I have to say, the way they blend their musical influences into their songs on this album is mind blowing. I'm not taking away from the amazing job they did on previous albums, or the hard work that was placed there, but this album is a masterpiece! For those who think it's not "heavy" enough for them, they've always had songs that weren't thrashing hard, heavy rhythm songs. Maybe I'm biased, who knows. I'm the same age as these guys and when I hear them play this album, it's amazing by multiple generations and takes me back to my youth. F**k the negativity of those that don't like it simply because "it's not like this album" or "or too soft"… Just keep true to yourselves and being amazing A7X.
