My initial thoughs are that this is really high production quality and a super-slick product for a band's debut album. Is someone putting some actual money into popularizing metal? Interesting.

In Flames style keyboard diddling: Check
Boy band singing style: Check?
Metal vox: Check
I want to like this because the production is indeed awesome, it just feels like a mishmosh of shit that's been done to death. It just feels.. Rushed, maybe? Like the tempo had to be that fast to make sure they could squeeze in every single idea that the record exec had to make a crossover tune.
