Scar Symmetry - The Unseen Empire (Nuclear Blast/Riot)

When they released Dark Matter Dimensions in 2009 I was underwhelmed. But, being a fan of the band and really wanting to like the new line-up, I persevered. I'm glad I did because Dark Matter Dimensions really started to grow on me. It's no Holographic Universe, but it's good. So now they've settled into the new line-up, what's the latest offering like?
