It definitely sounds like they were headed in more of a post hardcore direction with the 3 songs I've heard so far, but I still like it a lot surprisingly. I didn't like The Hope Division at all, and this record is certainly a big departure from For What It's Worth, but I feel like the band has evolved more and harnessed more of an old school punk/hardcore sound mixed with newer post hardcore elements while still maintaining their beatdown roots. I'm real anxious to listen to the full album tomorrow, great review too!
With the way it starts off with "Diamond", I was really into this. Then, I started to lose it, as it seems like the "heavy parts" (I hope this makes sense, because basically everything is heavy haha) were just breakdowns. In The Hope Division, the heavy parts, while mostly breakdowns, felt like much more. They hit with more impact than just chugeroos, which is what I got from this mostly. I still like it, but it just doesn't pass The Hope Division. Good review!
