I wish this deviated a little more into the soundscapes it offers up from time to time, a truly left-field move that I think works well in execution but proves to be a seldom respite from what is otherwise a very good metalcore record. The Mud and Hurt Goes On embody this synthesis very well, it's just a pity we get a stronger emphasis on pummeling drums and searing riffs that, while not stale and or lacking in bite whatsoever, are far less distinguished than the high points.
