Yeah, I wasn't thinking screamo at all when I heard DTGL. They're Only Chasing Safety may have branded them as a part of that genre, but dtgl opened up the doors for people who don't usually listened to metalcore. I'm sure uo didn't take a heavier direction because they wanted to stop their old metal fans from whining, but rather so that the general audience wouldn't be so close minded about their music. They proved that they are capable of writing their own style, the music they themselves love, and gain a wider range of listeners at the same time. It also shows that metalcore doesn't always require the overuse of chugging/squealing guitars and repetitive song formulas.

I can barely even listen to TOCS now, I've always thought it sounded like TBS with metal breakdowns and more screaming.

For me that was one of, if not THEE most affective review I've read on AP.net

From what I'd heard so far I felt like it was going to be another Define...which I wouldn't mind, but that doesn't get me hyped much.

Good job, Drew! Not until reading this review have I been this excited to hear what's next

Yeah, I liked tocs a lot, but after DTGL released, I almost immediately forgot about that album. I'll give it a break and say it was a transition record (in between a crapload of member changes, especially with Chamberlain stepping in) and wasn't bad at all for a band that pretty much had to start from scratch all over again. Plus it kinda set up what was to come for DTGL, with songs like I Don't Feel Very Receptive Today and Young and Aspiring . Last time I recall though, most of that album was written by Aaron Gillespie and if it weren't for Chamberlain's screaming vocals, it's not quite far off from The Almost's sound. Chamberlain wanted to step in and let his presence known in DTGL. And according to your review, he further enforces that fact. I recall in an interview, that Spencer himself hated TOCS lol.
