Stephen Hill and Sam Sleight's Tve. Cvlt. Pop! podcast have shared their review of Avenged Sevenfold's Life Is But A Dream... saying that the album, "[for metal], is the best thing that could've possibly happened to this genre in forever." Listen here.
"The people who don't like this album "don't like music. You like metal and that's fine. You just like metal and there's a difference. People who like music enjoy the idea of artists stretching thesmelves, trying new things, not being confined by the genre they're meant to be a part of. They like the idea of different sonic landscapes and different moods. They listen to different music in different periods of their life and different things that are going on at that time. People who like the thing that they like to sound like all the other albums that they already know they like just sit this one out. Because, I'm going to say this right now. I'm going to get it out the way nice and early. This is the best Avenged Sevenfold album. Hands down. This is the best Avenged Sevenfold album.""
