Album Rating: 3.0
He has a great voice but this should have been recorded earlier in the tour when he was at the top of his game. It's simply not a fair representation of his skill or sound to use a recording at the end of a *huge* tour.
Album Rating: 2.5
Exactly the point of my review
Album Rating: 2.0
This is a great review. I agree totally with almost everything mentioned. It was cool how you mentioned their previous studio albums. You accurately described the trends they presented musically and how they had abandoned some elements from album to album. Great job. You really took everything into account here.

Thanks man, I appreciate it
yeah this band is pretty trendy lol. at first ther were generic risecore. then changed to
scenecore. lol the lyrics of stillfly were horrible. went back to risecore sound. and now regular
they're trendy because they were super scene but now they're hipsters.

For some reason, metalcore bands vocals on live DVDs/CDs never sound that good. For instance, Jake Luhr's does not sound good at all on ABR's Home DVD/CD. But I was at that actual show, and he sounded great. Maybe it's just how these things are recorded.
It's cuz they suck
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
Still Fly was a cover song…
Anyways, saw them at Mayhem yesterday. Whoever did the sound for them failed, I could barely hear Mike, but what I did hear sounded good. Also, now they have some weird guy standing off in the back awkwardly playing keyboards.
Setlist rules, bummed to hear this sucks. Jeremy is their downfall live not Mike imo. And btw speaking of vocalists and tours taking a toll. See: ABR's Home DVD. Ruled except for some unknown reason Jake is awful
This band might have bad nights, I'm not sure. I saw them live on the Dead Throne Tour and they were fantastic, Mike hit all the right spots and never stopped screaming to do a rushed spoken section
"I saw them live on the Dead Throne Tour and they were fantastic" same here sparrow.
Yeah I saw these guys at Mayhem Fest a couple weeks back and they ruled. The Zombie EP songs were awesome live.
"and it shows that long tours can put a strain of a vocalists voice" something people barely ever take into account.
Well then plan the date better.
They really should have, whose call was it to put their recorded album at the end of a long tour where Mike's vocals would be so strained? I saw them on one of the first dates and he was spot on
maybe it was the labels decision.
yeah spec. JUST MAYBE IT WAS
