Ruin the music scene? What a ridiculous comment. It's unbelievable how there are so many retards lingering on this site. A large amount of people judged this before it was leaked or streamed. It's a solid release. Have a cry because it's full of breakdowns, so what? The vocalist is probably one of the best screamers out there & the guitar work is excellent. It may be generic for some, but they're not trying to be complex and progressive.

On first listen I don't mind it. The production is a bit too polished for my liking but the addition of the group vocals and clean guitar parts are a nice touch. Nothing amazing here but I have always enjoyed parkway for what they are, bit of fun.

Winston is still a beast and still writes some very cringeworthy lyrics.

charlie15, I've always felt like there is no point to listen an album if it brings absolutely nothing new to the table. Or at least does the things it does well. Why would you listen to this when you can listen to their older albums? Or do the smart thing and actually listen to some "metalcore" that doesn't suck (at least not as much), like Misery Signals?

And for the record, I did stop listening to OK Computer and I did listen to this. What a stupid thing that was to do. The album is not terrible but it sure as hell isn't good or interesting either. Still waiting for the moment I get why bands like this stuff breakdown EVERYWHERE. Those just make the songs sound gay, it doesn't make them sound heavier or whatever they are supposed to do.

smokescreens that's a fair enough justification but even though the album brings nothing new to the table, it's still a decent release. I have Controller and it's an excellent album. MS produce a more diverse and technical sound without the necessity of 100 breakdowns but that doesn't mean that this new offering by Parkway is horrible. It seems they've put a decent effort into it and it's a shame people on here are so quick to judge. Bands like Converge, Dillinger etc. are all more technical and progressive in comparison but it doesn't mean that Parkway don't do metalcore well.

RunAmokRampant, you must have immediately thought of that one.
The sad thing about Sputnik these days, is that it is filled with elitist corruption that is basically a group of failed English teachers or a group of indie/prog creamers that disregard almost everything that attempts to make a living out of music by making it accessible.
Parkway Drive's 'Deep Blue' is awesome, and it wont lose them any fans.

Actually it's full of people that seem to fall into the category of

a. People who hate breakdowns and therefore hate albums that use them as an important songwriting ingredient.

b. People who like breakdowns but realize that they have become a bit overused (although they don't care)

or c. People like you who throw a hissy fit any time somebody disses their favorite album, and whine about other people whining.

Haven't heard the whole thing yet. The performance is rather energetic, and it's obvious that the band is trying. The music is generic and not outstandingly written, which really kills the release. 3/5 thus far.

I've listened to the majority of the album and it sucks (despite a few bright points) until you hit the track "Deliver Me." After that track I start to hear good horizons music and it becomes enjoyable. I liked a lot of the tracks after it. Which means the first 7 suck ass and the rest are good. little Half-N-Half.

Edit: "Alone" is alright.

These simplistic breakdowns are basically the dumbing down of our music... Just like every other element of our lives, this also has to be made to appeal mainly to the sheeple.

If I hear that fucking open top string going "duh...duh duh duh duh.... duh duh... duh duhh duhhh... again, I'm gonna show up, rip it off and decapitate the guitar players of these shitty bands.

NO!, that was the best part of the album except all the parts that went 'dun.. dun dun... dun dun dun
or CHUG, CHUG GHUG, CHUG CHUGGA CHUN CHUG.'

This band is really innovate in the way they manage to use fret 1 all the way down to 0 in their songs

"These simplistic breakdowns are basically the dumbing down of our music... Just like every other element of our lives, this also has to be made to appeal mainly to the sheeple."

Oh FFS

When you say "our music" you basically mean you have some ownership of the entire metal genre, which has constantly evolved for the last 40 odd years without a single backwards step or gimmick until this point in time.

Also you're saying listening to commercial radio featuring the likes of nickleback, ke$ha and which ever wanna be rapper happened to do the best job of sucking a record executives penis on the day they were giving out contracts will not dumb you down as much as a few breakdowns in a song?

Oh and the sheeple reference whilst appearing to sound intelligent isn't really relevant in the context.

I've thought about that. Bring Me the Horizon and Parkway Drive are probably needed for Epitaph so that it can support its good bands that don't sell as much.
