I'm not a fan about how the original comment was phrased but I share a similar sentiment.  Moreso that run of the mill KL-core gets praised solely because the presence of breakdowns in every song and the more lowkey stuff that is more emotionally/thought provoking are skipped out on, this album is no exception.  But this is a tale as old as time, it is what it is. Nothing can be done to change that and being snarky like OG commenter only separates the two worlds even more in a sense.

Oh dude, I completely agree here. I already listened to one song here and it's STELLAR work, I love it, but I'm not a fan of bashing the more popular stuff just because someone thinks something is more interesting/better or what. I think the music can be discussed in a way that doesn't have to target something else. Can't tell you how many album here I found that I ended up loving that got overlooked.

Wow... somehow didn't know these guys but I'm definitely digging on the Envy vibe combined with a little Devil Sold His Soul.

Hot damn, this is a winner.  Deftones might finally get some real competition for the AOTM with me now.  Gonna love listening to both of them a ton tomorrow.

Open Wound is so so damn good.  PaddyOh, if you haven't heard of Envy and dig this... also check them out.  Start with "A Dead Sinking Story" and "Recitation" albums.  I'm really excited to listen to this album more thoroughly once I get over Ohms.

Deftones is my favorite band, but I think this is AOTM for me. I had a lot of fun on first playthrough, as there were a lot of different emotions I experienced from each song. Beautiful album. Gonna be in heavy rotation for sure.

I love Ohms, don't get me wrong. But I enjoyed this album a little better than Ohms.

Its close for sure they are both 9 or 10/10s imo. I love both albums probably can tell by my profile picture and favourite artist though :D

I actually like this way more than The Fallen Crimson because Svalbard GETS TO THE POINT. Envy's album has amazing moments but it takes FOREVER to reach them. Svalbard wastes no time in giving us the phc riffy goodness. They do it without the drawn out post rock passages

TFC is nowhere near Envy's best album, but then I also don't view post rock passages as an issue... I'm a big fan of both!
