So far, I am enjoying the change. It stands as a testament to two things I believe: the incredibly ability of the band to expand and also how fickle fans can truly be.

As someone who appreciates change in a band, I like the direction. Matt said it'd be a huge change, and it is. Very different. But a good change. They have gone from that angsty, hard, in your face sound, to more of a relaxed tempo with vocals that echo through the air.

I feel like if you don't like it, fine. That's cool. Doesn't mean it sucks. If you want Absolution, OS, or Showbiz, then listen to Absolution, OS, or Showbiz. Don't throw a fit and bash them because they expanded their genre. I personally feel like this type of separation happens with a lot of bands.

In the end, the album isn't bad. It isn't their old albums, by far. It's more like an expanded upon Resistance. Which I loved. It just shows how Matt can touch nearly any genre and make something out of it.

Every time I see an band stream an album, I assume its because the album must of leaked. That sucks for them.

Is the album any good?
I personally have enjoyed it so far. There is even a track that Chris sings. I recommend giving it a listen or few in order to let it grow on. So far, I've loved every track that has come on first try.

And yes, it did leak unfortunately.

After listening to the album in its entirety, I feel like I would like to give words of assurance to anyone hesitant: It is in my top 5 of 2012.

Those worried about the "dubstep" element, it is only 2-3 tracks, which are still stellar tracks. It isn't like the wubwubwub you think.

I would honestly compare this to more of a Led Zeppelin with elements of Queen, jazz, electronica, and pure sex kind of sound.

Am I the only one who can't figure out how to stream this thing? Says I have to do it through iTunes in the US? Any help?
I obtained the leak, so I have no idea on the stream. I tried figuring it out, but iTunes isn't giving me anything. I say if you are that interested, snag the link, and then just buy the album.
