The chorus could be mistaken for a generic rock song on radio if it wasn't for the drumwork during it. Although I admire the DWoT moment, it feels like it's struggling to find the DWoT melody but never quite gets there before it's done. It's actually depressing. Truth be told, the softer verses are quite pleasant and welcome despite these setbacks. However, if this is the "When All Is Lost" of the album then something's amiss.
