The songs so far are ok. Listened to about 5. Im digging Satellites. Could make a decent "arena rock" album...I think that's sort of what what they were aiming for.

The album started off fine... I liked the first 3 songs. After that, it went downhill, with a few bright spots in between ('Low', 'These Things I've Done' and 'Satellites'). 'The Best There Ever Was', 'Alone' and 'Congratulations' could have been left off. They're pretty bad.

Overall, the album felt rushed and has lack of direction. I read an article in AP recently, pretty sure they wrote this album in 3 weeks or something. It shows.

Oh well... I'll just listen to the 5 or 6 songs worth keeping.

Every Rise release I was looking forward to this year has been disappointing.

I agree that people underestimate how huge they are, but the truth is that 99% of their fans will illegally download the album instead of buying it. They just have that type of fanbase.

Not worth the bandwidth

So "These Things I've Done" wasn't a demo after all ? Sounds just like a different mix

Thoughts after listening through it a couple times:

1. I understand why they said this album was vocal-centric... that's about the only interesting thing here.
2. The drums are cool sometimes, but pretty bland overall.
3. I don't think there was a single memorable guitar line on the whole album. That's a sham, LCTT was a banger in that respect.
4. All these guest spots are ridiculous. This is no "In Defense of the Genre."
5. Kellin, please for the love of god write better lyrics. They're incredibly cliched.

Conclusion: Better luck next time? These guys had the talent and heart to make something great, I don't know how they careened so far off course.

Pretty spot on.

I don't understand how someone at the age of 26 can write lyrics this bland.

Depends on your definition of demo, I guess. If it's not the same as the release version and released before, then isn't it a demo by default?

About to give this a first listen. I heard Congratulations last night, and it was so disappointing. Waste of what could have been a really great guest spot.

On another note, SWS themselves sounded great yesterday at Slam Dunk Festival. They were disappointing when I saw them at their own gig last week in London though, so I was pleasantly surprised.

It's going to sell upwards, if not over, 30,000.

Yep. My guess is 33,500, Top 8.
