A few weeks ago, I received an online advance of The Ghost Inside’s Epitaph debut Get What You Give. I wasn’t able to spend much time with it as I was out of town, but I could tell from my few listens that this album was gonna be a jam and a half. Then early last week, I received a physical advance of the record and I immediately ripped the seal on it to play it in my car and really dive into it. Let me say this: if you were a fan of Returners and you were a bit wary of first single “Outlive,” don’t worry – Get What You Give shreds. Personally, I thought “Outlive” was a barnburner of a song and it fits in perfectly with what TGI is trying to accomplish on this album. It’s produced by A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon, but don’t let that scare you. He does a great job of maintaining TGI’s signature sound while sprinkling some nice melodies throughout (“Engine 45” and “Dark Horse” come to mind, with the latter having the perfect balance between sing-along catchiness and dick-ripping brutality). This album keeps up the intensity throughout - “Thirty Three” and “Face Value” are certain to be some of the heaviest songs of 2012. Overall, The Ghost Inside’s Get What You Give is the kind of hardcore album that requires you to bust out your mesh basketball shorts and bring the mosh – regardless of where you are.
