Here are the songs I'd recommend from this album and why...
"Hearts Burst Into Fire" - Two tracks in and my mind is blown already. This song is a nice break from their usual twisted "I love you... and therefore you must DIE" psychosis gimmick. I don't really know what the meaning of the title is, but my one theory is so blood-vomitingly emo that I dare not speak it. XD Good song, though. I love that it starts with a slow, clean riff and guitar soloing and builds into a compatibly-faster rhythm - none of this "intro in a time signature that makes it totally out of place with the rest of the song" crap that metal bands do these days.
"Waking the Demon" - This one has always gotten me excited. The riff is BREWTAHhHhHL!!! DX \m/ It's fun to listen-to and also to play. And the guitar solo isn't screwing-around either. I'm not impressed with their use of these demonic possession clichés, but for a song as good as the rest of this, I'll let them slide this time.
"Say Goodnight" - I love how dark this song is, and that they're not in a rush to get heavy with it. They certainly get there, but they take their time. The clean-tone riffing and soloing remind me of imagery from films like "Underworld." And it's a tragic story, but once again not their usual twisted, love/hate/kill fare. It's a song about mourning, and you can really feel it in the notes they choose. The way the song evolves is kind of like the way mourning often does - there's a deep sorrow but it's held-back until those moments alone later, when it comes to an explosive climax.
"Forever & Always" - A song for the fans... Mostly. I think. o.O Awesome heavy riff that gives a solid foundation for a very genuine lyrical message carried by a simple but powerful melody. I wish it didn't take so long to wind-down in the end. There's at least ten seconds of absolute silence at the end which will really feel like a lag in your metal playlist. Still a favorite, though.
"Road to Nowhere" - Teh awesummm. ^_^ I love that they used acoustic guitar for at least half this song. Eventually it reaches the bridge and you know it just got real, like a mind snapping from the strain of the situation in the lyrics. It's a nice, melodic song with very little screaming and solid instrumentation.
Other songs I'd recommend include "Last to Know," "End of Days" and "Disappear."
