Doesn't read like a 3.5, more like a 3 or even a 2.5 maybe...



Also, this sentence is grammatically incorrect:



" A song that is undeniably visceral but still well constructed, Touche Amore take all of the punch of a five minute post-hardcore song and wrap it all up in under two."



And you're missing apostrophes left and right in this bitch.

I love all these "blah blah blah your personal review reads less like a 3.4 and more like a 3.21 blah" comments.

Back to the point though, I agree with your rating. It's definitely solid, and if this was their first album I'd probably be pretty impressed. I like ...TTB more, I think it's got more raw power behind it, and there's not a song on here as good as Honest Sleep or Cadence. Condolences was a total wtf for me listening to this the first time. Bad call.

The condensed songs are part of them being in the NEW WAVE genre. They don't wanna make drawn out songs that are way to long too begin with.

This new album is a little too "new wave" for my tastes

Technically that is incorrect, but it's done so often even in professional work that no one really cares. All he needs is an "In" at the beginning, anyway.

the short songs kind of give it a condensed feel, but after two or three listens they started to stick out a lot more, same thing happened to me with to the beat

This site is so lame on its fads.



This is perhaps the most boring hardcore band on the planet in studio. They are freaking sweet live, but there's hardly a reason to listen to anything they've released in studio.
