Man, it pains me to see HH compared to brokencyde. I mean, really?
~*she talked to me*~
i actually really liked HH first two albums when they came out, but yeah obviously my tastes have matured a bit
lol. Actually HH are one of the few bands I actually like completely.
whoa you need to be more open minded to say the least
What. I am completely open different genres and such.
This band still exists??????
sad ...they havn't been important for years (though i dont know if they ever really were)
what do you mean important?
As much as I don't really like HH, it's my own opinion. I have absolutely no problems if anyone liked them, as long as they aren't rapid fanboys belching out in each review "omfg u suk 4 not likeign dis, i rate dis a 5 cuz its da best evar!"
BeckyEll is legit.

I'll just assume that you had some inclination to not accept that the band has completely switched directions—either that or you dont fully understand their musicality and their style.
Let me explain where you first went wrong during this review. You misstook a respectable change in musical direction, and instead you made it appear that Hawthorne Heights is no longer a functioning band because they made such a drastic shift. I'll admit, I was very surprised when I first heard this album, and I was a little outraged that there was no screaming in it when they are an "emo" band. But then I listened to the musicality of the whole thing, and found it to be very melodic. The sounds blend together in a mundane fashion, and the melodies are very piquant.
The second place where you messed up is when you said that JT Woodruff (you spelled his name wrong) doesn't believe the words he's singing. Well, who are you to judge that? I personally believe that he feels what he's saying because he's a mature artist. He's not a kid. He knows the power of his words better than anyone. Anyone who writes something of that magnitude knows exactly what he/she is saying and the message it is putting out.
Sorry, Sir, but I'm frankly outraged by your immature interpretation of their album after the death of one of their beloved friends. Of course their style is going to change, and of course their fanbase is going to shift. I encourage you to listen to the album in different ways to fully envelop this album rather than bash something that I'm sure you listened to and said "Well, this is totally different from their other stuff, so I'll give it a terrible review."

BrandonEngleMusic, im sorry but your kinda contradicting yourself. you say, and i quote; "The sounds blend together in a mundane fashion, and the melodies are very piquant."
If the music is piquant, then it is interesting & appeals to the senses (this would primarilly be images the music conjures upon listening, and possibly just being enjoyable to your sense of sound & artistic view), but in that same sentence you say the sounds blend together in a mundane fashion: so it comes together sounding bland and generic.
How can it appeal to your musical taste, while sounding bland and generic? you sir, rated this at a 5 with nothing good to back it up. this album is not good on almost any level. rating at a 3/3.5, sure understandable. maybe even a 4? but a 5, god no.
Use your brain before you go rating things the highest possible when they obviously are lacking. In short, go fuck yourself.
