I hate this band. This album is not worth my time. I suggest running far away because there are many other metal bands that are a billion times better.

this band is still fucking awesome, its like the reviewer said, they fell into a rut. As Daylight Dies and End of Heartache are definitely better albums, and the first 2 with Jesse Leech aren't horrible either. I think kse can step up their game and come back.

End of Heartache is probably their best work, and Daylight is either very close or just as good.

Nobody thinks that, retard. They were well known before this album. Its just not as good as their previous 2.

Yeah ok.... is thats why they get haters saying they turned into a Pop rock metal band smartass..I'm not saying everyone does but people have..
It's still a good record regardless wether it got more mainstream attention or not..

Regardless of mainstream attention or not, its not as strong an album as their previous two. And i don't believe this got that much mainstream attention anyways. Everyone and his 3-year-old sister is too busy listening to Justin Bieber.

Ok. I dont like many songs on this album. This does not stand up to the three that came before by any means: Daylight, TEOH, AOJB. But you, sorry to say, have no idea what your talking about on many different subjects. You say this record debuted higher than ADD because it appealed to a larger mainstream audience. Is that why ADD sold 60,000 copies 1st week and this sold 58,000 but the fall in record sales caused this to debut higher. And comparing this album to ADD. This one and ADD have NOTHING in common. There are no tracks that resemble Daylight Dies, Eye of the Storm, This is Absolution, Break the Silence, etc. You say that Starting Over and Reckoning could be put into a ADD theme when ADD had a much more positive and hopeful lyrical approach when those songs are dark and gloomy and the instruments dont have the same tone to them. You cut down Reckoning and Never Again (the best tracks along with The Forgotten) where Jones shows not only his powerful screaming voice but his ability to sing as well. And what about Jones voice sounding odd in KsE. He stands atop the metalcore community along with Tim Lambesis, Jesse Leach, Phil Labonte, Brian Fair etc. I dont mind you saying this is a bad album for them cuz it is but make sure you know your information before you embarass yourself.

Well...it's definitely not the best Killswitch album. Alive or Just Breathing was a game changer, then they went with just flat out good music. This album is alright in comparison, and some great songs, and some that are just blah...
