Despite the fact that Messengers was released in 2007, it is still my favorite CD in 2010. The large majority of the songs favor the use of at least three breakdowns throughout, and keep in mind this was before the time where that was pretty standard for any metallic band. The drum work really stands out throughout the entire CD, you can tell its hard and complex stuff to do just by listening. The guitar work is equally impressive though I feel its not as blatantly obvious (I wasn't as impressed with it until after I tried to play it). The vocals are quite impressive though for this CD his high vocals aren't as developed as they are in Constellations but they're still fantastic. Stand-out songs are: American Dream, Composure, Up Against the Ropes, and The Eleventh Hour. Definately worth adding to your music library if your into bands like Texas in July, This or the Apocalypse, or A Plea for Purging.
