Lots posted on this already....some like it, some don't...
I personally love it and think it pretty much just great melodic rock like the last couple albums have been. Yeah, it's got some variety and a few quirky WTF type moments, but for me it's all a fantastic and interesting listen.
I think generally the people that are struggling with it are looking for something specific....They want a pure AOR album like maybe the first two H.e.a.t albums, or they want a pure balls to the wall hard rock album. This album is neither of those things.
When I look back at Tearing Down the Walls though, there was a lot of variety on that album hidden among the melodic rock songs. A Shot At Redemption was different, Mannequin Show was kind of theatrical, We Will Never Die was more AOR, All The Nights a piano ballad, Laughing at Tomorrow was different, etc, etc.
I think they've just followed the trends they started on the last album. I appreciate them trying to do some different things and not doing the same type of songs over and over.
For me, while I would put it a couple points below ATN and TDTW, it's still a fantastic album and probably my favorite album this year.
