Good album--I got a strong Lostprophets vibe from it.

Would like to hear that full song version of 'A Hymn For All I've Lost'.

This so much. I recently got into this band but I loved the song The Weight of the world in their debut. I got Bones but was disappointed that the majority of it sounds a little too close to bands like Shinedown or breaking Benjamin. That song though is superb and j really wish it was longer.

As I said in the review of this band really lost momentum here in the UK after this album. Very rarely I ever hear anyone talk about them and its a shame I remember the release of the first album they got quite a lot of big gigs and one that springs to mind was being the band on before All Time Low.

Not really sure what you mean.

They're playing main stages at fesitvals, supported Seether across the US last month and now they're headlining the Vans Off The Wall tour across the UK and Europe for the next 2 months too.

Their album charted higher than their debut, their single 'Bones' charted higher than any of their previous ones (2 in the UK Rock Chart). They've had more sales and definitely more TV plays. Don't even think their first album was released in the US.

Band has grown. Definitely not lost momentum.

I loved the album. I agree to a degree that the hype around them has slightly faded, but I have little doubt that their biggest days are ahead of them. I'd say Deaf Havana were in the same position before they put out their album last year.

Was really psyched by the RIYL in the AP review, only to find that this was much more Shinedown, Seether, Breaking Benjamin, and even (gasp!) Nickelback at times than Lostprophets, Anberlin, or Enter Shikari. I found it incredibly bland given the amount of praise it got.

They're headlining the Vans tour next week which is full of huge venues. Wouldn't be surprised to see another big buzz around them later this year.

If you're after more Lostprophets-y stuff I'd recommend you check out their first releases Mirrors and All Our Kings Are Dead. Great records.

You Are Not & Brother In Arms is the one-two punch of the year.
