I don't have a problem with a band trying something new. You know, as long as it doesn't suck.

I think they have progressed a lot over the 10 years they've been around. They still try to keep their sound while adding more mature technical songs. I like this album

UH. FUCKING. MAZING. I have always "liked" Silverstein. Like enjoyed hearing their music but never found a love for it in the past but this album right here is GREAT. Listened to it 2 times all the way through while I did my thermo assignment. And damn I am blown away.



I also agree "In a Place of Solace" is the highlight of the record.

Cleans are annoying as fuck. Guitars are best part but they don't do much too much of the time

Surely you know roughly what the cleans are going to be like as its the same every Silverstein album scream/clean/scream/clean etc. Shane is a great vocalist imo, when they started I thought they must of had 2 vocalists until I saw the video for 'Samshed into Pieces'.



I'm glad the new guitarist now sings on a couple of songs

His cleans are great IMO but I can see how they might sound too whiny for some. It's crazy how effortlessly the vocalist switches between the screams and cleans though.

There's something about american/canadian accents which especially bug me in clean singing as well


That artwork is amazing though

listen to the song 'In a place of solace' anarchistfish. There aren't any cleans you might like it a lot better.

I don't know why people are so surprised. Band has been mad consistent and their last 2 albums ruled.
