owens really doesn't sound as screechy as I remember. but based on this song Erak's addition to the band seems to have been mainly for show.

I don't mind their older stuff, but since Brandon left I'm setting myself up for disappointment.

Expected more from the addition of Erak, but we'll see, maybe the rest of the album has some more showy guitar parts. Song was okay.

Ah, the revised version is what I thought you meant, but then I thought maybe I missed something.

New song is good, btw. I haven't mentioned that yet lol

Really liked Brandon Bolmer as their vocalist, Owens always sounded whiny to me. Not a fan of him coming back.

I've never given two shits about this band until it was announced that Erak was joining the band and this song has effectively killed any interest I had in this album. Horrible

Brandon was so much better for this band than Craig is, I'm pretty disgusted by his return. This song isn't bad but Craig definitely brings it down. I probably won't bother with the new album. Shame... I really liked Illuminaudio

I gotta admit I enjoyed Craig's screams here quite a bit, and after a few listens I've decided that he's pretty tolerable for the most part. He has a few lines that just sound fucking awful, the first couple for sure. But all in all this is pretty solid. Who knows, maybe this will actually be good.

Brandon can scream better and has a less whiny voice. but Craig has way better stage presence so I'll give him that.

As much as a cringe at my high school self for listening to these clowns, I have to admit, I saw them years ago when they toured with Protest the Hero and Fall of Troy, and they weren't too bad live.

what the fuck guys let's put one of the greatest post-hardcore guitarists on our roster and barely utilize his extensive talents

song was the epitome of lame and I must say I am disappointed

however I will eagerly check the album when it comes out for thomas's showy guitar parts

they were a ton of fun with erak live, looking forward to giving this a shot and seeing them next tour. Craig takes so much shit here, but he was nothing but cool and grateful every time I talked to him.

I think there's too much focus on Thomas not utilizing the full extent of his guitar skills. He wasn't brought in to be a flashy guest guitarist, he was brought in as a full time member to contribute to the unified sound of the band as a whole. In a three piece like TFOT, there's a lot more room to run free with crazy guitar riffs and let them serve as the main focal point, but here I think it's more important for him to know when to pull back and play something simple and melodic but not completely abandoning his main riffy style (as Jason was a pretty riff-heavy guitarist).

Plus the band's already got one full time showoff now a days, no need for another.

eh, that's pretty good critique, whales. In the studio, I think your thoughts could apply well.

But live, they feed off each other's shitheadedness. It was a fucking party.

We'll see how this sounds in context of the album, but this certainly doesn't seem as good as anything from All's Well That Ends Well. They would've been better sticking with the Illuminaudio sound at this point.

Same thoughts, I wasn't expecting TFOT-level wankery but I was expecting some more diversity in the riffs.
