The album has forty five songs but some of them are really short ones. According to the lead singer the shooter songs will be like a new experience for the listeners and will be different from many others. John Linnell said that the songs were natural ones and suited more in the shorter forms.
Although some of the critics of the music industry said that the songs are hyper arranged and the addition of so many songs in one album has given a jumbled up look.The album also got average reviews through the ratings. The album made a debut on the 57th place on the billboard 200. The songs of the album were also aired on the albums.
The album has a great cover photo featuring a painting by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres of a royal princess. All the songs weather they are the longer ones or the shorter ones make sense and have a unique story to them. The shorter songs complement the longer ones and come as fresh breadth among the longer ones.
The mixing of these smaller songs with the longer ones is very fine and has produced to catch the attention of the listeners. The greatest quality of this album is that the listener can to get bored of the songs and the album itself.
The presentation of songs with a feat music has served to be the greatest component for the album’s success. The intensifying music and nicely written lyrics are the plus among many things in this album. The album is available for sale in market and online as well on the official site of the band.
