its like a high 3, low 3.5. the instrumentation is great, but the songwriting is not as strong as on AOJB, and while Jesse's cleans are good, his screams are much weaker than before

This is their best since End of Heartache and its nice to hear another good album from them after the last two, but it doesnt come close to touching Alive or Just Breathing

Definitely lived up to my expectations, they haven't sounded this goo in years. Personally, I really
like the vocals too. Probably gonna end up as a 3.5 for me.

Agreed 100%. Will end up at a 3/3.5 for me personally, but I enjoyed that first listen well enough!

Jesse's vocals are great on this though intotheshit. His screams are fine and his clean singing has never sounded better. Adam D's backing vox are also the best they have been on any KsE album, some of his gutterals here are awesome.

i still remember the days 10 years ago when i thought killswitch, unearth, all that remains, shadows fall, and a7x were the heaviest things ever. they opened up a whole world to me though and i wouldnt be listening to program music without em!!!

I'm beyond amazed, even though I don't give a damn about the band.

I really dig, it's definitely a 3.5 for me at this point. It's nothing groundbreaking for sure, but it's enjoyable and nostalgic for me

God dammit Killswitch Engage. Adam D was right about the faster pace this time around, and the riffs
really do slay for KsE standards, but the choruses got even more bland compared to the last album.
This is EXACTLY what All That Remains did when they started getting older. Where is Times of Grace
when you need them?

For those looking to listen: this is above average metalcore with great riffs but a lack of creative
song writing. I will likely end up rating 3.5/5.

It's weird to say, but I'm going to agree with intotheshit on this. The harsh vocals are really forced, and a lot of the songs
are kind of bland.

Beyond the Flames is good. The Turning Point is a great song throughout, as the chorus actually fits
well, unlike most of the other songs. In Due Time is probably one of the better songs. I think the
album deserves a full listen, even if its just for the verses.

Trebor, your comparisons always seem to be wrong. Not at all like In Flames.

Through Track 6, been okay so far, but 'The Turning Point' crushes for sure.

Its definitely good metalcore. It would be great if there were better choruses. A lot of people have been talking about how catchy KsE choruses are; I've never listened to them before, and frankly, I couldn't see that with this album. There's a few, but none are special. The blandness of the choruses are actually what keeps this from being an excellent album. The Turning Point is definitely the standout for me. Always is a nice change of pace, but its been done better. And I see a little In Flames now Trebor

I can't believe nobody mentioned how awesome the song Always is. It's not only my favorite song on the album, but one of my favorite songs to come out this year.

Good structure with the songwriting. It has some interesting riffs that grab your attention.

These guys are getting older now I did not expect the full agression of AOJB. Its a progression with Jesse just as the band moved forward with Howard on EOH to ADD.
Just wish it didnt have that obvious high production value. I liked the rawness of AOJB.

Hey Damian!

MegaJake, The Turning Point is indeed one of the best songs. Darkwatch, I agree that Always is pretty
special.
