Where is all this disappointment coming from? This album is fanfuckingtastic. I loved the first 2 cds also, but I think this is the best of all three as a whole. As far as Kellin's part in 'King for a Day'? Well, I fucking WISH Sleeping with Sirens sounded like Pierce the Veil with Kellin on vox. Definite album of the year contender for me.
Don't agree with this review at all. Step up from Selfish Machines. And Kellin's guest spot is probably the best in a while. He actually guest's not just a line or two he's part of the song and their voices complement so well. Seeing it live proved it even more..
I agree with the score kind of but I still think this is their best yet.
EDIT: And I loved SM and FFTD. If anything it's about equal with SM.
I don't know what the deal is with some of the comments here. This album is easily, easily, EASILY, their best work yet. Best riffs by far, best singing, catchiest songs, and just flat out harder and more rocking than their previous two album. This album has more great songs than their first two albums combined in fact.
"Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears" is possibly the best song they've ever written.
If it weren't for a few missteps like "I'm low on gas" and "Tangled in the Great Escape" this album would be nearly perfect (yeah I know people love that last one, but to me it just screws up the whole tempo of the cd having some jazzy little number thrown right in the middle). Minor hiccups aside, this album is a balls out rocker. I like it.
