Music critics generally leave me with the impression that theyre douchebags because they accept a paycheck to analyze a subjective artform and present opinions as if they were facts. They usually do this without being able to produce art that is of higher craftsmanship than the work they criticize.

Ridiculous. "These parts aren't brilliant, nor are they a sign of progressive musicianship." What are you talking about. Those parts are about 30 seconds long a piece if you don t like them... so that makes a 13 min song bad? And besides those parts are great! That s amasing that a band can play the metal style that they do and have the creativity to use other genres. You re a terrible reviewer. Horrible review. Terrible. This album deserves a 9/10 at least. In my opinion 13/10.

ok nick, it may have those little outburst of random shit but still when you say 85% is good and then you give it a 6/10.
wouldnt that make it 60% good?
i mean there are small parts they through in there i guess for humor. i dont know. but try not to make no sense what so ever when writing a review please.

This Review is a Mockery! If you listen to them play live, or on any of their albums (The Self Titled, The Silent Circus, Alaska, or even The Anatomy of...) then you know exactly what this band is about and you know that you can never anticipate the next move. This album would have scored a 9/10 if I worked for Lambgoat and not this pompous P.O.S. that did this review.

For everyone who agreed with this sub-par review, i sincerely encourage you all to go pick up a guitar, bass, drums (whatever you prefer), get a band together and just TRY to outmatch the incredible musicianship brought out in this album.
9/10. Hands down.

People on this site are complete faggots, these reviews suck dick.
BTBAM is Prog as F. I agree, Self-Titled and Silent Circus are better, but still. 6? Wtf? New Tony Danza scored higher.

the person before me said it best, this cd is a let down to the true btbam fans. and i even consider alaska to be a let down. nothing will ever be able to compare to the first two cds. fuck everything after. just keep it metal you fucks. none of this stupid experimental bullshit.

I have been listening to BTBAM since the day i heard Mordecai about 4 years ago and from there on they were one of the most talented bands i have ever heard. This new album "colors" is a let down. Dont get me wrong there are some song on there that are amazing such as "Foam Born: The Decades of Statues" but other songs i hear Country riffs and ripoff riffs of Blind Guardian songs? I just dont understand why BTBAM cant just stick with what they are good at which is the MathTechnicalMetal we al

amazing cd, so what if they put samples in that seem cheesy, they have crazy talent and make it work BTBAM are artists

if you understood what the songs represented and what the lyrics were about, you'd understand the experimental breakdowns on this cd. obviously, not everyone will enjoy it. i don't expect everyone to, but if you have any sense of musicianship/an open mind/a sense for good lyrical content, you would see that this album is more than just a bunch of breakdowns that are surprising. read the lyrics, listen to the rhythm changes, take a music theory class, then come up with an intellegent answer.

Most progressive album this year, yet another great Victory release. Those odd parts are what sets this CD apart from the fakes.
