I will say I love the production. Cammies voice sounds like a texture rather than a focal point, it's the human energy in an otherwise cold fronted attack on the senses.

It reminds me of nineties gothic metal in that sense, where at times vocals would dual with the insteuments. And a voice like Cammies pierces through everything.

I'm playing the album again and it's really blowing my mind. Even more so than the first time...its getting so much better with every spin!

Last time I felt this enthusiastic about a new album was last year's Crack Up by Fleet Foxes, but the album that last made me feel this much emotion on a first day listen was Endless Forms Most Beautiful in 2015.

This might top that, and even match Lacuna Coil's Delirium for emotional impact!

I completely get what they're going for with how the vocals were handled. I was just a disappointment on first listen after how well produced it was on the last album. They are conveying something much darker on this one and the vocals are done in a way to make the songs more impactful.

I had the same reaction as you the first spin. But the second play it is clicking more, and it captures an almost live feel, and again I am reminded a little of The Gathering here (Mandylion in particular), but this is far more polished.

They deserve to be noted as a great band, and not just noticed for the pretty face at the front. The music really encourages that too, this is a BAND.

This album is definitely a grower.

I think it's safe to say that I really like the new album since it's the only thing I've been listening to this week.

I also went through that phase when I got the album!
