By Album cover says it all!
We miss you Layne....
After you have one of the greatest singers of all time and he passes on and you try to replace him this is what you get..... boring lyrics tired guitar solos, junk that no true A.I.C. fan wants to hear. I tried to give it a chance like I did all other post Staley albums but it’s just not there it does nothing for me except remind me of what this band use to be. It’s like every other great 90’s band that is still trying to make music eventually you realize it has to be the money and no other reason because this is trash....... thanks guys what will your next masterpiece bring............

Perfect together. Very impressed by Williams influence on this one
AIC Strikes Again!!
I love this album!! “Fly” was my favorite for a while, so was “The One You Know”. “So Far Under” was also really good.
Tracks were very enjoyable. Very impressed.
Great listening Rock Album!

Spot on Lyrics and melodic guitar riffs.
Best band rebirth since AC/DC
Yeah, I went there. If Back in Black through Flick of the Switch were a great trio of albums after tragically losing their front man; I put these three AIC albums right behind them. It's the kind of music you need to soak in for a few listens and then it starts to click. Not sure this is up their with Black Gives Way or Devil...time will tell. "Maybe" is a great tune and tracks 8 and 9 are a welcome dive back into more of a classic, hard driving grunge sound.
I'm with Andy1980s!
I also have struggled to like the last 3 albums. They are good. And it has nothing to do with the singer. I miss the crazy time changes and diving into insanity like on the 1st two albums. I want twists and turns and not drag. Drag a little, maybe...but not the whole album.
I don’t know how they do it
By Tim Goldberg
They may have peaked in the 90s but AiC are still top-tier and this album is one of the best releases of 2018.
Pains me to say...
... but this by far the most mediocre AIC record. I’ve forced myself to listen over the last few months and every time I’m left feeling pretty underwhelmed. There’s not much to make me want to return to it.
