musical interludes of 'You come before you'.

You need to put capitals on titles. Good review though. Still iffy about checking this out.

I have listened to thais album 42 times in the past 10 days

Oh well then, it has to be a classic ; ).

I dont listen to YCBY much so cant help you there.

But that's their best album?

OOD was immature and represents metalcore I can't stand.

Hahahahaha damn, I fail at getting you going. I do like that youthful energy once in a while too (hence my love for nu-metal hahaha).

This is def. their best offering, IMO. It has everything I appreciate about the genre and I'm not one for 'Metalcore'. I usually drift toward the Avant-Garde side of the musical spectrum but The Tropic Rot is amazing.

Far and away their best album yet. Maybe their other CDs were classic of their time but this album musically and artistically destroys that shit, IMO.

"Converge for rednecks"

Poison the Well helped spark the metalcore fuse, and they burn their competitors on this disc. Production, musicianship, lyricism...all flawless. Versions sounded like 12 songs that belonged to 12 different records, but this is a much more coherant offering. I guess the bands who help build a genre from scratch don't show their true colors until its 'preimminent' downfall, eh? (yes, I'm talking about metalcore)

I should listen to this more because 'Antarctica Inside Me' is so good but idk I am kind of apprehensive.

The title to 'When You Lose I Lose' made me lose the game.

Poison the Well are part of the "second wave jun jun" (actually the third, but let's not split hairs). What I meant to say is that they helped ignite that late nineties metalcore scene. The Opposite of December was the first metalcore album to break away from the underground and reach a broader audience. "All the good bands" are dying out too. Metalcore, as a subgenre, as a whole, is dying.

Douche.
