A good album all round, only one song Im not keen on which is Planets, bit on the repetative side, otherwise another good album from Avenged Sevenfold, yay .....

  weak album

good album on it's own right, but if you compare to their previous releases i personnally feel it's a weak album with no real stand out songs. it lacks the punch of nightmare for me and could've been better

  Most accessible album yet to metal fans.

This album definitely feels like a massive homage to metal through the years which i respect. However, having said that i feel like by doing so they have lost a little bit of what makes them individual in their own right e.g. most metal bands are blues driven i wouldn't have said that about Avenged so far but the heavy blues influence on this record probably serves to place them more comfortably among their peers but the flip side is a loss of some individuality. Furthermore you can't help but feel a lot of restraint here through the lack of showboating dual guitars and more simplistic drums which i think seems like an aesthetic decision and gives the album more groove and bigger riffs as a result. So i guess your take on the album comes down to a matter of perspective all in all i'd say it's a great effort by the band and should open more doors to most mainstream metal fans.
