This is where they would have gone after Who Will Survive (in my humble opinion), had Vincent stayed in the band...Scotty Brackett being in the band now, seems to have renewed that sense of weirdness that made Who Will Survive so great.
The first eight songs are ridiculously good. Haven't had the time to let the rest sink in yet, but this is definitely an AOTY contender. And these songs live are AMAZING...they played 5 of them at their recent show in Portland and it was epic.
