✦✦✧✧ The last time TAIM put out an album, I said, "Typically, one doesnt listen to TAIM for subtlety, or innovation, or expansion of the genre. One listens when in need of a good beating." So why o why did they put a heightened emphasis on vocals, unclear yet fast riffing, prominent fake snare hits, and a generally squishy sonic character? Less experimental than the metalcore staple’s last couple of releases, this album comes across as both safe and (at times) boring.
