    Ok…. let me get a few things out of the way first….

    - I've started listening to these guys a month ago, i'm very late to the party….
    - Machine was the song to get me into the band by accident, I LOVE it
    - Divergency is my favourite song (The main riff grooves SO HARD)
    - Omniscient is an awesome interlude
    - Cameron Grays work goes SO WELL with these guys
    - Destroy Erase Improve is my favourite album :cool:
    - Ummm… Throw me in the jungle is awesome to me :ugh:
    - I've had a few beers

    Just inputting an outsiders thoughts into the thread :lol:

    I do like The Discovery the most, mainly because of the interludes….. they are killer :metal:

    Anyways i'm struggling to understand the hate, do understand a bit of it…
    Do people really need to hear the Malmsteen like solos to make it that much better? (This is coming from the biggest shred fiend you would meet)

    Regardless what people have said - Give me 0000---00---000--00-000--0000 all day long as there's something interesting going on under it (which happens in most cases?) Just too much negativity here (Your opinion is invalid, mine is correct ;)), i'm buying the new album as soon as it drops!

    Damn, I will eat my words. That song is pretty good and I really hope the TMITJ isn't an example of the rest of the CD.

    It's less about "give us shred" and more about "give us evolution".

    A lot of their songs from their first three releases had thought-out structure and actually developed and had new ideas within the songs, and they showed off every band member's playing and writing skills. TWDA had some of that imo (Source Field, Imaginary Condition) but had a lot of songs that were basically two sections repeated over and over and over. There's a difference between growth and just repetition.

    The complaints come from the fact that they don't seem like they're trying to be interesting anymore. They're more about appealing to the lowest common denominator now rather than being musically proficient. The songs from the first three albums stuck in your head because the parts were so memorable and unique and good. The songs from TWDA (and likely this album) will stick in your head because they beat the same relatively simple idea into your head for three and a half minutes straight.

    Also I can't wait to watch the inevitable YouTube videos where Lee can't play the Resilience chorus up to speed. Lee never plays the Follow The Signs solo right live, or even the Exhilarate solo sometimes.

    I don't think anyone whose been with this band from day one can defend what this band has chosen to do with their sound recently, or at least not pretend its even remotely the same thing as the first 3 albums...

    Also why does their guitarist choose the worlds ....tiest chug tone??? It literally has 0 balls to it

    I don't think anyone who's been with this band from day one can say any of those first three albums (well ep and 2 albums) sound the same, they all have different atmospheres and different approaches. I mean you can tell all of them are BoO albums but they're all unique. And as for defending them, I can't defend them as people, but as musicians they play what they enjoy, they obviously enjoy this style that people seem to rag on but you can't fault them for wanting to do it. I'd rather they make music they like and go in a direction they like than them make music they don't enjoy anymore because people moan at them (and will always moan at them since jason is gone).

    As much as I feel I'm going to dislike their new stuff I entirely stand by what you say here. I never want to say that they shouldn't do what they want, they're entirely allowed to do that and I would like them to do that. I might not like it, and I might criticize it, but I'll defend their right to play whatever they want to play.

    Anyone else hear goddess of the dawn yet. Im pretty impressed by it. Grooves nicely but the dark melodies and vocals make the song. Starting to think this album might be a ripper

    People are going to be satisfied with "Back to TNR" after hearing Goddess. Good song.

    Yep, it's pretty good. Still a lot of chugs, but they accompany tasty leads really great. What surprised me, though, is that Ronnie changes his singing style towards the end of the song, very slightly, but still enough for the last four lines to sound fresh.

    Sounds like every BoO song on every BoO album. Take that as you will.

    Wasn't that weird? I did not expect that.

    It's a neat song, I think it's more organized structurally than some of their other stuff yet isn't overbearingly repetitive.

    I saw the song posted on Facebook. Resilience is still my favorite of the three tracks that have been posted so far.
