Just picked up After Forever's latest - Self Titled. The only other AF album I have currently and can compare to is Invisible Circles. As with that one, this new album will require several playthroughs before all of the layers can be fully appreciated. So far what has me skipping backward and listening to again and again is a part in track #2 (don't even know the names yet) where the vocals are soft and melodic in a major key, then suddenly and seamlessly the song transfers to a minor key. It is so unexpected and cool that it's almost creepy!

Other than that I would have to say Floor's vocals hit greater range and style variance than before, while the music itself is more abrupt, with frequent driving beats.
