The reason I love A Patient Man is because it delivers are high-caliber hardcore album with a nice touch of grown-up content as well as a range of diversity in the musical approach and the lyrical content. The studio engineering raises the bar in quality and so brings an added intensity to the brutally clear delivery of each song. In fact, the engineering is so well done you could almost get lost in listening to the album simply by paying attention to how it was recorded. Either way you look at it the album is a treat to immerse yourself in. I will say this: the album is not something you just whimsically pick up and listen to a minute of here or a minute there.
