Not his best
on December 26, 2012
I bought this album right when it came out. I listened to it several times over the course of a few days and a car trip, and I haven't listened to it since. I am a big Cope fan. I have every one of his albums, and have seen him live about ten times. He is definitely one of those artists that excel live, and seems to do a different show every time.
But I hate to say it, but the albums have just been going steadily downhill. The songs lack the poetry and passion that they used to, and almost seem pop-like. The music just doesn't have the soul that his first few albums had. It's not bad, and it is still good music to chill out too, but I used to be able to listen to his old albums over and over, without getting tired of them. If you are a big fan, then it is worth giving this one a try, but don't expect the depth of his first two albums. Salvation is still one of my favorite all time songs, but there is certainly nothing like that on here.
