이번 We Came As Romans의 정규 3번째 앨범은 바뀐 모습이 많이 보인다. 일단 가장 크게 눈에 띄는점은 언클린 보컬과 클린 보컬의 교체이다. 기존에 멋진 고음역 보컬을 선보인 클린 보컬 Kyle Pavone가 이번 앨범에서는 클린 보컬 비중을 많이 줄이고 언클린 보컬에도 참여했다. 이와는 반대로 기존에 언클린 보컬을 담당하던 David Stephens가 이번 앨범에서는 멋드러진 클린 보컬을 선보인다. 다만 David Stephens의 음역이 Kyle Pavone보다 높지는 않아서 We Came As Romans의 트레이드마크인 치솟는 고음역 보컬을 보여주지 못해 기존 팬들의 원망을 샀다. 사운드 자체도 상당히 기존스타일에서 벗어난 모습을 보인다. 신비로운 앰비언트 사운드와 고음 보컬을 활용해 시종일관 하늘하늘한 사운드를 들려주던 이들이 이번 앨범에서는 그런 것들이 모두 없애고 다소 위화감이 드는 평범한 메탈코어 사운드를 들려준다. 실망한 팬들이 많다.

덜 빡세졌다고 해서 평점을 심하게 낮추는 편은 아니지만 그래도 이건 너무했다;;

mix štýlov ako metalcore, alternatíva, rock. Nie je to zlé, dobrý obal.

요즘 유행하는 팝적인(?) 메틀코어의 표본답다. 개인적으로 이모코어 등도 즐겨듣는 편이긴하나 본 앨범은 대중적인 느낌은 충만한데 귀에 들어오는 곡들이 없다는게 큰 문제인듯 싶다.

전작들에 비해 큰 변화가 보이지는 않는다. 하지만 데뷔앨범의 이름값은 여전히 남아있는 듯 하다.
