this album is better than their previous, but falls short of Returners. the mixing is somewhat awkward. the riffs are a little recycled, and some are plainly derivative of other established bands. While I like the Ghost Inside, I still feel that they are settling for mediocrity with each release. Enjoy them again on warped and keep cashing in those easy paychecks. This is the new green day
The bass sounds terrible. I mean it's well played but the tone is all wrong and tends to muffle out the guitars. It's no Returners but much better than the last one!
Band is STILL doing nothing interesting, still putting out cliche nonsense, and overall, still f*cking sucks.
I think this is one of those bands that if they venture away from their usual sound at all they'll be chastised for it and if they stick to their same usual sound, they'll be called repetitive. It's a no win situation, still one of the most consistent bands out there, the musics good no matter what the reviews say.
these guys need to practice their Dillinger Escape Plan and GTFO
This album sounds awful. The songs are decent, but the production is so muddy.
This album was a lot better than Get What You Give, so I'm happy about that. It's obviously not better than Returners or FATFO, but it wasn't really expected to be. My only problem with the album is the song Phoenix Flame which just seemed like a poor attempt to re-create their song White Light. Other than that (and the generally crappy production) I really like how TGI has progressed.
Do yourselves a favor and cross reference TGI song With The Wolves with Thrice's Silhouette. Both opening riffs are identical. I like TGI a lot, but those dudes are getting very sloppy in the writing department. Stay hungry and step it up, guys.
Dude that mentioned Thrice's Silhouette was dead on. That is the first thing I heard when I listened to that track.
I personally think this is their worst album. I liked Get What You Give quite a bit. I think this album is more boring and has more cheesy and cliche parts. And the production is the worst they've had since FATFO. There are some high points on the album, but I probably won't listen to this really at all because it sounds so bad production-wise.
Tried to impress Scott Vogel and desperately failed. Scott Vogel isn't impressed by anything.
50/50 on it. Metalcore is a stupid f*cking "genre"... So TGI and some shit band like memphis may fire are lumped into the same genre? That's ridiculous.

I'm glad others noticed that the production on this album was subpar. I really couldn't get over it enough to enjoy the songs.
