I think they mentioned in an interview that they're much more comfortable with this style than they
were with their more Southern one and they don't plan on going back to those roots, but minds changes
all the time.

"So much Rise Records at once."
Yeah, really. I guess they're gearing up for summer or something.

They have said there is no chance they are going back to their southern sound. They said it's too easy to write.

Sleepwalking was great. I thought The Hollow sucked. If they don't go back to their older style I def won't bother with this.

YES YES YES !

I saw in their studio updates that they were trying hard to actually mix back in their southern sound

The Hollow was insanely good, the vocal melodies were genius all along, I loved the lyrics, and they even got some awesome riffs which isn't the most common thing with Rise Records bands, the songwriting was also super memorable. I loved it the first time I heard it and I still do. If this is even near the same level, it will probably end up as one of my favorites of 2012.

It'd be cool if they blended some southern-y riffs with their current sound. They could pull it off I think.

Let's hope it's like or better than "The Hollow", and I don't really get the bad lyrics view. Sure, they are not original or something, although several of the songs were about his father not being present in his life, and even though they are not geniously written I'd say it takes balls to do so.

What I liked about the lyrics in The Hollow was that they were simple and catchy so they got stuck in
your head and it was very easy to sing along, yet they still had meaning and always fit the part they
were written for perfectly.

Well, at least I know I can stop caring about this band. I don't understand how any of you can say that the Hollow was good at all when it was typical rise nonsense. They at least had something a little original going for them on Sleepwalking, now they're just swimming with the rest of the metalcore masses.

The Hollow blows Sleepwalking out of the water, it's so much more focused. There's better songwriting,
and Matty is a much more proficient singer now (in the screaming and clean departments). First time I
heard the Hollow I dismissed it as another breakdown album. But getting back to it (cause I didn't
understand the general rating it has), I realized that this album was much more, and that they have
the potential to become one of the best mainstream metalcore bands out there.

Hopefully Matty explores more range in this. Stoked none the less though.

Fuck that album art is terrible. Rise has really been mailing it in in that department.

Yeah that album art was disappointing, for some reason I was waiting for a really beautiful and awesome, colourful cover. Then I see this, ehhhhh. MMF deserve better, and in my opinion they're the best mainstream metalcore band (actually my favorite from all metalcore)

I think you all rate this so highly because most of you weren't around when this sound became homogenized. I'm gunna have to write a review on The Hollow considering it doesn't have a review under 3.5 which is ludicrous.
