Although I enjoyed their first two full lengths, I wasn't really able to get into this one (due to the new vocalist). He kinda sounds like most of the other hardcore/metal vocalists out there today. I still dig the instrumentals though. Nice review.

This. But there were parts that he was adequate, right?

he's not bad by any means, but the 2 previous vocalists (Remi and Cameron) were both unique with their vocals.

He's so unoriginal. I hate these cookie-cutter vocalists (Silverstein, the new DGD, the new AGATG)

Overall, well written review. My one complaint: you used one or two too many personal pronouns. You may have a different view on this, but IMO they should only be used when giving a personal anecdote.

You say that a lot. I'm kind of a personal pronounular personular person. Down with ancedotes. Down with the proper usage of whom.

yeah. i say that because that is usually my major issue with a lot of reviews. If a review isn't up to a certain standard, i don;t even bother commenting. And if it is up to standard, i comment with the first suggestion i can think of. You can be a personal pronounu-whatever, but using personal pronouns too much without good purpose can make even the best review seem terribly informal and unprofessional.

I is unprofessional... but I seriopusly do see what you are saying. In my books and in my songs/poetry, I'm a formality fucking king, but in reviews, I like to let people know what they'd think during an album...

there are ways to do that without using personal pronouns. For example, preceding your Hot Topic scene comment, you could say "it is eerily riminscient of..." or "the listener is reminded of the all-too-familiar" or stuff along those lines. Heck, even use the word "one feels" instead of "I feel" because even that sounds more professional. Oh and you write poetry? sweet. i do too. I'd love to see some of yours, if you dont mind sharing it?

Sure. For privacy reasons, I'll PM you that instead of putting it here where another 290,000+ people can see it.

And I'll do that.

Dude, you've had 11 posts and all of them have been ways to stalk me. If you don't like the music that's fine, but you have no merit yet to be an asshole.
