This is the most disappointing song I've heard in recent memory. I always have such high hopes for Cynic releases, and I sincerely hope this doesn't represent the quality of the other releases. It's just a boring pop song with Sean Malone over the top.

Well, I'm not really surprised in any way. It's hard to be disappointed at something that isn't surprising.

It still has echoes of the new Cynic I enjoyed like Evolutionary Sleeper. It will probably be an enjoying prog-pop album? Makes you kind of realize what kind of void exists there.

I'll be perfectly honest, the main reason I'm posting on this is cause I wanna see my avatar below Cynic's since we both look so damn cool.

Having said that. . .

I do enjoy Cynic but haven't listened to any of their post-Focus material and, judging by these comments, maybe I should continue not doing that.
