albümün ön kaydını dinleyen bw&bk webzine, şu yorumu yapmış:
"i think the fans are going to be surprised. the new stuff is a lot more interesting that what we heard on figure number five
; less formulaic, more hooks. we heard the unmixed version of the new album - in other words, no studio magic had been added to beef up the sound - and speed
's clean vocals are amazing. he really pushed his performance this time out. and, (scarve
drummer) dirk verbeuren
is fucking unbelievable. he may not be an official member of soilwork but he put in a performance as if his life depended on it. you want to talk about bringing the band to the next level? wait until you hear this guy on these songs. he'd give mike portnoy
) a run for his money any day of the week."
