well that wasn't anything new for Rise Against but was still good.

"All hail the environmentally friendly america sux vegan mainstreamish melo hardcore band" stfu Rise Against's politics are one of the reasons I like them so much. hate them for their music fine but that comment just makes you look like a retard

S'alright. Sounds like appeal to reason, until the bridge, which was fairly awesome.

I kinda like anti-establishment geared lyrics in music. (ex: GY!BE's subtle hints of anarchism.)

But, I've never been a huge fan of Rise Against. They sound good and all, but I dunno, they just haven't changed enough over the years for me. It feels like they've sorta stuck to one general song formula. I'll listen to this though, because they're still a good band, I've just never loved them.

Cover looks amazing, song is too familiar. How many times can they make the same album? Hopefully there won't be
another misstep like Hero of War.

Was pretty standard Rise Against, tbh. Can only hope the rest of the album is a bit different.

The article says both "Help Is On the Way" and "Hope Is On the Way" as the title fix that.

They are quickly becoming the definition of mediocrity, which is too bad. For a band that just got better and better, they suddenly screeched to a halt and turned to the other direction. Good for them for preaching what they believe when it comes to politics, but it's time to go back to what made them stand out. Siren Song is one of my favourite albums ever and it kills me to know that they'll never sound like that again. I may just pass this album completely, unless I hear a strong enough recption leads me to do otherwise. Until then, this album, and maybe even this band, one of my original favourites, is off my radar.

Pretty good... There's definitely some recycling going on, but I like the tempo switches, screaming, etc... on the 2nd half.

And just remember guys; the highlights on 'Appeal To Reason' were NOT the first couple of singles.

i agree with whoever said they abused the "help is on the way" deal.

still a decent song, not bad for their first single. Im hoping the album will have a little more soul though?

Wow, I'm underwhelmed...

It's ok, but after the Self-Titled EP I hoped for something more... edgy. Maybe this is only the radio friendly song to please the kids, and the album has more of an RPM/SSOTCC appeal.

Here's to not losing hope for this one

^I just listened to that album for the first time and Saviour is the one track that really stuck out. Their lyrics often get boring as fuck, but they're great in that, especially for the simple line of "I don't hate you"
