This will have to be probably the best album I have ever reviewed. Every track is original, every track has their own sound, every track sounds amazing, every track is perfectly crafted, every track is awesome in their own way. This is one of the best rock albums I have ever heard. For some, rock sounds the same but here there is a whole variety of rock tracks ranging from soft rock, to hard rock anthems to rock ballads. I commend Birds of Tokyo for producing and creating such an amazing piece of music. Lots of effort has been put into this and this is very well done!
EDIT: Now that my obsession with Birds of Tokyo phase is very well done and over, I decided to give the album another listen so maybe my review will not be as biased as it was. The quality of the album has pretty much remained at its very high consistent level except I've now lost the love of a couple of tracks. Those particular tracks have been downgraded to a 5. I still believe they deserve such a rating due to its awesome musicalness however there are more and more songs that are losing its 6* ratings. Still a good album although I may not listen to it in full for a while.
