I actually think this is a bit better than Siren Song... and about level with The Sufferer & The Witness. Some of the anger (not much, mind you) has been lost in this album, but the songs are less samey and experiment a little bit more than before, so it pretty much evens out.
Also, though the rhymes in Hero Of War are pretty childish, the images and emotions conveyed by both the lyrics and the voice more than make up for it, I think.This Message Edited On 11.08.08

It's definitely level with Sufferer, but not better than Siren Song.

aside from typical growing, the thing about hero of war's lyrics being direct quotes from the troops softened my take on how bad they are, so i upped this.This Message Edited On 11.08.08

Maybe when we get to 9346 we can have a witty retort.

In my case I like the change of pace Hero of War brings, its refreshing plus it is executed very well and although the lyrics aren't great its still a very enjoyable song.This Message Edited On 11.08.08

I love Hero of Wars lyrics "“They took off his clothes/They pissed in his hands/I told them to stop/Then I joined in” might be titillating to some" Its not titillating in the slightest and this was actually happening in Iraq he didn't make it up
I give the album a 4 its not as good as their previous albums but those were epic

I finally just picked this up. I think a good chunk of the songs on this album are better than almost anything on Sufferer (like Savior) but overall this album isn't as consistent.

Not trying to sound like a dick here but you should actually find out what titillating means because when you do, you'll realize how awful what you just said sounded. I don't think anyone (especially in regards to what the lyrics are referencing) would find it titillating.

RPM is supposed to be their best. It isn't but it's still great.

Seconded.

I don't really like the message in Hero of War either. Even if that situation did happen, it seems to me like it kind of makes ALL of the troops overseas look bad which I don't support. Other than that this is a great album!

My friends and I saw them live in KC with The Gaslight Anthem, Thrice, and Alkaline Trio and it was one hell of a show.
