Format: Audio CD
Trivium's fifth album In Waves is their first album with new drummer Nick Augusto, and their first to be produced by Colin Richardson. Nick's style of drumming fits the band well so there is no need to worry about Travis's absence. Additionally, the general standard of production is brilliant and even the quality of the lyrics has improved.

At first, I was a little worried that the album mightn't be all that good, as I wasn't too keen on the pre-released tracks like the more radio friendly `In Waves,' and `Built To Fall,' or the heavier, more mid-album type tracks `Dusk Dismantled,' and `Inception Of The End,' all of which were objectively good songs but all seemed to be missing something.

That many tracks should be indicative of the album's quality as a whole, so I didn't get my hopes up. They did all grow on me however, and definitely make even more sense within the context of the album as a whole, so if you weren't keen on those tracks either, don't let it put you off listening to the whole album.

As a general rule, the songs are shorter than they were on the previous album Shogun, and a little more straight-forward in terms of composition and structure but this is not necessarily true of every single track. The best way to describe In Waves would be a mixture of radio friendly songs and Ascendancy type songs; when you get right down to it, its another regular Trivium album. No grand departure really.

Every Trivium album so far has had some alteration to the style of the vocals, some harder, some softer and some mixed. In Waves could be described as more mixed, but with some additional styles not heard on a Trivium album before too.

There are two types of Trivium records: where they try to be heavy, and where they try to be friendly. Ascendancy and Shogun (and Ember) were albums that tried to be heavy (and were pretty good), Crusade was more of a friendly album (which failed).

I would also call In Waves a more friendly, less heavy-striving record. But somehow this time they managed to nail it. IW may be remembered as the best record in their collection, because it will be extremely hard to top.

Trivium got loose, and in the process wrote some all-time epics. The title track is one that will bounce stadiums for a generation. Caustic Are The Ties That Bind has a metal chorus that you'll sing in your dreams.

The next tier of great tracks alone would have made this the best Trivium yet. Dusk Dismantled, Chaos Reigns, Inception of the End, all fantastic tracks, all totally heavy and unafraid.

The Special Edition even has 18 tracks and you won't skip over any of them. The band knows how to put together quality songs, period.

In Waves is the biggest and the best mainstream metal has to offer. The heaviness and song-writing are at a natural and optimum level. No top-tier band can match Trivium at this point.

I'm a bit surprised but some of the negative reviews. Its hard to imagine liking their previous work and not being really happy with this album as I am. The way it kicks in with In Waves is just straight bada$$.

A few reviewers mentioned not liking the song 'A Grey So Dark', one even calling it emo. Uhh...not so much. Slower and melodic, yes, emo it is not. A beautiful vocal melody in the chorus stood out to me on my first listen and continues to be a strong point in the album as far as I'm concerned. I guess they can't be everything to everyone but any Trivium fan should love this album. 'Watch the World Burn' is another one of my favorites along with 'Forsake not the dream'. The only song I don't really care for is Dusk Dismantled.

Also the idea that this is an attempt to sound more mainstream strikes me as totally absurd. This album is as heavy as anything they've done.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the album is 18 tracks, so with that many songs it takes longer to get to know the songs and appreciate the album more. I bought the special edition which is worth it in my opinion. I really enjoyed the DVD and its worth another 5 bucks, especially for people who like to take a look at the creative process of the album and get to know the band a bit more.

I first heard of Trivium years ago. I owned a copy of Ascendancy and thought it was pretty good, but never really hit it off with their brand of music. I knew they were still active in music, but they were always just kind of there.

Fast forward, I heard a bit of In Waves from some friends and decided to give it an extended preview. I liked it. It was a fine piece of Metal Core and worth ownership. I found it in the Amazon marketplace for a penny plus $3.99 shipping. For $4 it was worth it to me to check out.

I have enjoyed this CD for about six months now. I have several songs in multiple playlists I listen to while running or working out. However, I discovered I did not have the extended version. I had the plain old version, version. There is an addition of this CD out there with extra songs on it I wish I had known about. From listening, there are some strong songs on the expanded addition that could push this CD up to five stars.

I give it four stars due to some songs being a little mundane. The title track and Forsake not the Dream are the best tracks with Dusk Dismantled and Skyline Severance being strong four star tracks. It is worth the listen, but I would recommend looking for the expanded version to get the most bang for the buck.
