    It'll be hard to beat Projector, DD and TG, but yes, it might be the case.

    Stand up and be counted, in uniformity! :mad:

    I liked elements of Uniformity but on the whole the pieces didn't fit together for me.

    For the first time listening as it stands alone song, yes…I do have some feeling like an empty, blank spot …something wasn’t in its place.
    Different feeling with 2 previous songs which have strong character; For Broken Words with its strong dark doomy aura and; The Science of Noise perfectly indicating the 20 years of Band’s life in 3:51 minutes song.

    Then, I made my playlist in my cellphone (same with the album itself);
    1.For Broken Words
    2.The Science of Noise
    3.Uniformity
    listen, feel and think to them again and again and yup…déjà vu. This feeling is same when I enjoying The Gallery, The Mind’s I, Projector and Fiction. It has tempo changing among the songs, it has deep emotion, it is a drama (showed in a different style from one another)….something that I can’t find in WATV until this day.

    Maybe it’s too early for me to rate the Construct, but I hope all the great review from many sources are proven. And I really want to hear what Nile, Kreator, Heloween and Sentenced works on another DT’s songs.

    Looking forward to it! We Are The Void wasn't up to my style. I don't believe in "growers".

    Interesting way of putting it. In my experience with DT, every album blew me out of the water and amazed me on first listen. Subsequent listens were required to digest the phenomenal-ness and depth of each track.

    There are bands that I like that were "growers," but DT was and is not one of them.

    Might have something to do with the fact that that song is a rare bonus track from the Haven recording sessions. It's called In Sight and you can find it on the Haven remaster or on Exposures.

    thank you,
    I really don't have any idea what is in Haven remaster and Exposures.
    I missed the Static, Exposures and now this In Sight.
    Shame on me.

    Actually it is Misery in Me and not In Sight but where to find the song is true ;)

    Thimon is apparently correct; it makes sense based on lyrics. When I went to look it up last night, I found it under the title "In Sight", but according to the Wikipedia article about Exposures, "Some early versions of the release for Disc 1, have the tracks 3 & 4 and 6 & 7 flipped or misprinted." That explains the confusion, I think.

    It's the tracklisting on the album back-cover that's wrong - those songs are listed in the correct order inside the album booklet.

    However, the song-writing credits on that wiki-article could hardly be any more incorrect. I know wikipedia should not be blindly trusted, but this goes beyond a simple mistake - someone must've just thrown wild guesses there without checking them anywhere.

    Yeah ExposuresiRaD really has some amazing tracks, so do give it a listen.

    already looking for this album through my friend.

    I'm not sure...maybe I'm wrong, Mikael vocals on Haven sounds different from other albums. I assume (from music and vocal style) at the first listen that the Static and Misery in Me would be part of Haven...
    But that assuming not work to Exposure, music would match with Damage Done, but vocal more sounds like Haven.

    This guessing is only my mind game :)

    Can't anyone go on wiki and change/correct what has been posted?
    I'm not that knowledgeable with DT's lyrics, etc to find mistakes that have been posted there,
    plus me being dyslexic(when it comes to spelling, I can read/understand without a problem)
    would not make the task that easy, plus all the language bullies that lurk on the internet,
    think they must correct every mistake of a person ever those with a handicap :ill:

    I suppose I could go and correct those song-writing credits some day, but I'm not particularly skilled with wikipedia and and I'm very busy with my work these days, so if someone bothers to do all the menial work I offer to double-check the results.

    I'm not sure if you wanted an answer, but the tracks from Exposures come from the following recording-sessions:

    - Static and The Poison Well are from the Damage Done sessions.
    - In Sight, Misery in Me and Cornered are from the Haven Sessions.
    - No One and Exposure are from the Projector sessions.

    The remaining tracks are from A Moonclad Reflection EP and Trail of Life Decayed demo from the early years of the band.

    There are now previews available on Amazon.com. Low quality snippets, but tantalizing nonetheless:

    As soon as I heard The Silence In Between, I filled my pants. Complete badassery!

    The album leaked on Youtube (and probably other places). Now I shall wait another week for the CD artwork. Songs are awesome, btw.

    Best album since DD.

    PS: For me The Gallery is the best thing in the history of music.

    Greetings from Brasil.

    I got my copy today in person from Utopia Records in Sydney, Australia.
    They have the US import, digipak with 2 bonus tracks and that brutally horrible alien cover.
    Listening now ...
