This gets an automatic 3 for coverart alone. The iron giant is making out with a pirate ship

Some of the worst cover art I've ever seen.

Cocaine what's your rating? I know back in the epic Kezia war we both cited Hot Cross a bunch but I don't think I ever got your actual take on their stuff other than maybe one comment on Cryonics.

I'm going for a 4. I really enjoy this album. I like that it's not as raw and whatever other shit people are trying to say .

And back when I seemed to have a vendetta against you in that argument, I cited them, but it was during a period where for some reason I wasn't all too huge on them.

I loooooooooved Cryonics when I first got it, but then I didn't love it so much. Now I love it again.

I just listened to "Fatefully" a couple of times on their myspace, and it rocks pretty hard. I checked them out a year or so ago and I remember not liking it very much. But alas, my tastes have broadened since then. Any chance you could send me/direct me to a couple of these tracks, Nick?

This is a pretty good album from what I've heard from it.

I dont think a 4/5, but I havent heard the whole thing.

good review

EDIT: I really enjoyed reading the epic Kezia war between DFelon and Cocaine. It made me laugh.This Message Edited On 02.19.07

I just listened to this today. There's not one memorable track on this album.
Improved vocals!?!?. I don't like them at all. They sound really emo/pop punk. The guitar really annoys me aswell. Too many pull offs!
Cryonics was waaay better. Good lyrics tho.

Thanks for IMing this stuff, Nick. Very very good, but IMO not as good as Fair Trades (my personal favorite) or Cryonics. Excellent review as well.

Flypaper, we're sorry that the guitar in this band actual tries to show some skill in the songs.

But I agree, Cryonics was better, but this is still good.

Yeah hes an awesome guitarist. Just the hammer on/ pully offy stuff starts to get boring after awhile. The rest is good. I might give it a few more listens.

Yeah, Thomas Erak does that whole pull-off thing a bit better with TFOT if you ask me, but overall they both need to learn how to NOT do it because it's becoming very stock/standard for the genre. Learn some scales fellas.

This release definitely has the fewest number of hammer-on's of any of their albums. Fair Trades was like Mastodon levels of hammer-on's, where as this is mixed in with alot more straight rhythm guitar work (comparatively) .
