I'm actually really enjoying defector. Can't think of a song in recent years where Matt's guitar sounds so good as it does in the riffs in the second half of that song.

Funny you should say that, because the general consensus is that T2L is a mish-mash of genres that doesn't work well, has no flow.

Close yourself in your room, turn off all the lights and listen to the new album. Make sure you know the concept of the album, and it'll blow you away.

I've probably listened to the album as a whole about 50 times in the past week. Songs like Revolt and Aftermath, which I wasn't too keen on after the first listen, I wouldn't even consider skipping now. Drones, which was a serious "WTF, why is this on here?", actually works superbly well as a finale to the album. Blends seamlessly from The Globalist. Again, never skip this track.
