I think the singer has a pretty terrible voice so with these new shorter songs that are more structured and contain more vocals it just doesn't do it for me. His voice is weak and can't carry the songs they tried to write on this record. Their best material had small doses of vocals and the rest was just atmospheric rock with plenty of breathing room. I was really looking forward to this CD and I couldn't be more dissapointed.
Album is fucking amazing. 100% from me. Not a single second on this album I don't absolutely love. It is perfect to me. An instant post hardcore classic, if you even want to call it that. I don't care what you call it.
Damn, there's no way it's this good. Why haven't I listened to this shit yet.
Yeah, I hate when you see all of these positive reviews and then it turns out to be not so great. I try to stay away from reviews before I listen to a new release. But it is a really good album and you definitely need to listen.
