Simple Boy: This song has a very layered, progressive, yet straightforward feel. It's one of the more rockin' tunes on the album, overall. Goliath: Perhaps the heaviest groove on the album, make no mistake that this song is one you'll want to blast in your car with the windows down for all to hear! New Day: This is the first lengthy song on the album, clocking in at 8:20. It's incredibly melodic and builds into a tremendous wall of melodic heaviness for its climax. Set Fire to the Hive: This is the album's single which you can hear all over the web. When I first heard this song, I didn't really dig it; admittedly, it took a few listens to really grab me completely (I always dug the chorus of the song, though). If you make the connection between the lyrical content and the music, you realize that the music really seems to follow the lyrical progression and is there to add emotional context to what Ian Kenny is saying. Umbra: The intro of this really brings the band, "A Perfect Circle" to mind, so fans of APC will probably really gravitate to this song initially. This is the next somewhat lengthy tune on the album, clocking in at 7:50. It follows a similar musical path as, "New Day" in terms of how it builds up. All I Know: One of my personal favorites on the album, the lyrical context is incredibly deep. Musically, it's very melodic and groove-laden. There are heavy passages in this song, but the song as a whole really shines. The Medicine Wears Off: Somewhat of an interlude, it's only 1:49 but somehow feels much longer than that in the context of listening to this album from beginning to end. It's very laid back and flows well. Also of note, it's not just an instrumental! The Caudal Lure: This song has a quirky polymetric beginning that may seem unsettling to some people, but I love it. Overall, this song is up there with the heaviest on the album. The end of it, I particularly love with its layered groove and emotionally-grabbing feel under Ian Kenny's faint repetition of, "[w]here's your God?" Illumine: It's constant distortion on the guitars for this song, so expect a full-out, rockin' tune. Deadman: The longest song on the album at 12:04, it's an epic song that just has to be heard. It goes through many shifts between laid-back groovin', heavy riffage, soaring melodies and harmonies... this song has it all. Change: The second-longest song on the album at 10:47, it's much heavier throughout but less epic than, "Deadman." That being said, it's still a great song.
