Meridional Comments

level 2   (95/100)
이들만의 여러 음악적스타일이 집약된 앨범. 텁텁한 사운드가 약간은 아쉽지만 곡들의 퀄리티가 이를 상쇄시킨다.
level   (90/100)
전체적으로 분위기주도형 사운드로 변모했으며 전작에서 사라졌던 매스코어 리프를 다시 살리고 있다. 곡들이 전반적으로 아주 깔끔해졌다. 전작에서 보인 노골적인 클린보컬 사용빈도는 여전하다.
level   (70/100)
보통 Norma Jean 최고의 앨범으로 평가되는 Meridonal. 하지만 난 Bless the Martyr and Kiss the Child 같이 시원하게 달려주는 사운드가 더 좋은 것 같다. 클린 보컬이 조금 덜 나왔다면 조금더 나앗을 듯 하다.
