Almost bought this the other day, only $8. Then I figured, screw it, Rise Against is easy enough to download. Still haven't gotten it though. From the sounds of this review, its probably worth hearing but their next album will be sub-par.

I'm looking really forward to buying this. I haven't heard any samples, but I loved Siren Song, and this is supposed to be similar to it. Plus, Rise Against just plain owns.

this is pretty good but I imagine it being a grower. The album kinda starts off slow but tracks 6-8 rule.
And I don't know if its cool or not that I like "Roadside".

[quote=iluvatar]I absolutely cannot stand Rise Against, but this was a solid review anyways. I've listened to two songs off of this (plus the single equals 3 yay for math), and I still think its just bad.[/quote]

Have you heard the song "Black Masks and Gasoline." I don't think anybody can deny how sick that song is.

I don't know how Rise Against got this big. I mean, if people like that sound there are lots of other/better bands that sound like them. I am not calling them bad but they aren't all that great. I don't see much musicianship in their music, and frankly don't think their singer can sing.

DFelon, I've only heard songs off of this (the count is up to 5, the two other songs I managed to get arent that bad) and Siren Song, so unless its on tha album, I probably haven't. I'll look into it within the next three months.

Oohh no wonder you don't like Rise Against. You need to listen to Revolutions Per Minute and Unraveling.

It's very cool.



Okay I don't know what else to do. I can't post in the forums and my journal entry did not come up on the front page so could someone please go look at it.

This really is awesome. As you have said, their older punk/hxc roots and the more present catchier styles have combined well. I need to get more used to this, but I see it becoming my favorite Rise Against record soon.

It is cool to like Roadside.

I like one rise against song. "Give It All" because it is the only one in lin with heir namesake. Most of their songs have a pseudo-deep feel that is akin to emo bands. However, exellent review.

i agree with the review about which are the stronger tracks. though i must add that injection and the good left undone are also strong tracks in my opinion. i like siren song better, and i've heard part of RPM... so i guess i need to go further back with unraveling

I just finished listening to the whole album. It's good. 3 or 4 great songs, 3 or 4 poor ones, and then some solid songs otherwise.

and unlike RPM there are no filler tracks
Well RPM didn't necissarly have any filler tracks, just basically 2 out of place minute and a half hardcore songs.

Haha, I'm moist in the pants, I forgot about that.

That cover was bitchin'. I mean Tim's voice hit the notes perfectly. And the music didnt take too much far from the origional.
I can see myself cuddling to this cd. It makes me feel that damn good.
