Aeveron - Construality (2004)

'Construality' generally works fairly well simply due to professionalism. Listening to this album let's you know everything about the band: they've clearly done their homework, not only on talented instrumentalism, but on effective songwriting. The songs almost seem scientifically engineered to sound good to the average listener, using tried-and-true techniques such as acoustic breaks hook-laden lead guitar to ensnare the listener. When taken at face value, 'Construality' is an excellent album. When taken in the context of a metal listener, however, it becomes a tad flatter.
