"God all the 5's for this are sickening."



You're sickened by the fact that Letlive were able to conjure up an album that completely blows every other hardcore album out of the water by way of their staggering musical virtuosity and reluctance to rely on two-step, open chord breakdowns?



I can see a lot of people not agreeing with the praise and just calling it a "decent" or "okay" album, but sickening? Clearly these guys have done something right to earn all the positive reactions.

Pretty good descriptions, but the bold font isn't good writing. Only use them for titles if at all.

The Blackest Beautiful is a stupid name for an album. What's it even mean would be better as Beautiful the Blackest or Blackest the Beautiful. Bands should outsource their album titling duties to me.

I had to catch my breath from laughing so hard at this. This is sooooo far from the best post-hardcore album and two-step open chord breakdowns are brilliant? What an idiot!

Excuse me I misread your comment that they don't use two step breakdowns but to consider this as staggering musical virtuosity is still laughable.

Great review, pos.
I don't understand all the fuss with this band.
Fake History was okay but not very original.

Saw them live with Deftones and the vocalist was insane.

Nice review man, you'll get a pos from me. The only issue I can draw is that you use a little too much hyperbole, which gives off a vibe that you arent being objective when you approached this review. Of course i am nitpicking, but is it important to draw attention to some of the shortfalls of the album, nothing is perfect hahah.
