its a really different feel for the band, but i love it. ive been listening to it non stop, even learning the mirrors truth on guitar. ive got my limited edition preordered, so yes i am buying it. for some reason, all of the songs just seem to fit where i am in life at the moment, and even though it is abit of a slower feeling album then previous efforts, it just really fits. love it. look forward to seeing them again live.
