7 - "Glass" - 4:19
8 - "Ancient Tombs" - 3:56
9 - "Frost Flower" - 2:22

12 - "Between the Mountains and the Sea" - 4:53

Buddy had this to say about the sound of the record,
Quote:
I’ve always wanted the band to move towards being less pop-driven and heavier and more exploratory. We needed to change it up, do something different and move forward. We wanted there to be space, because we wanted the record to sound heavy and open. If you want something to sound heavy, it’s about the space, not necessarily just the chord structures or the screaming.

On switching producers,
Quote:
We needed to change everything up. I don’t think we would have written these types of songs if we knew we were going with McTernan. We would have had a different approach. Dan and I said, ‘Let’s do something different: Let’s get someone different, let’s record it somewhere else, let’s write with some other people, let’s not put any boundaries on what we want to do.’

This album is so sick. Can't wait to hear it in higher quality.

Wait no longer. It sounds great.

Can't believe it's been 7 years since Still Searching was released.

Through one listen and I'm very impressed. Can definitely see this becoming my favorite album by them. Gonna have to test the replay quality to see if it can hang with Still Searching or The Fire.

with this album he finally wrote vocal parts that stay in his range. He touches on it more in the interview I'm posting here on Monday.

Nice. Should be a good read.

The EP and LIEY are the worst things they've done, IMO.

Agreed. One Eight Seven was about the only song I liked on the EP. And at the time. I thoroughly enjoyed LIEY, however, every album thru have released thus far has been miles better

I didn't know that Senses Fail had it in them to make a record like this. The ap.net interview with Buddy made me check this band out for the first time in 5 years and now I'm glad I did!
Is this the only release you've heard from them in the past five years now?

Yeah. I'm gonna check out the other albums I've missed out on too!
I would. I enjoy them all. The Fire had a lot of potential and has some really great tracks, but it might be one of my least favorites.

Is The Fire as heavy as this one? Why's it your least favourite?
Parts of it are definitely as heavy. And I'm not sure really ha. I loved the idea of the ~3 minute tracks and at first appeared to work wonderfully, but the tracks just didn't stick with me like I was expecting. A few tracks did, but not the album as a whole. It's still a really fun record and I enjoy listening to it, but just not as much as the others.
