Poets of the Fall
Front heavy, the first four or five songs are among the most enjoyable the band has written.
Catchy, poetic and genuine alternative rock with atmosphere and light pop influences.
Vocals, guitars, drumming... all top notch. A noticeable improvement over Jealous Gods,
which was a solid but somewhat underwhelming release. The last half however falls into some
of the bands worse habits. Slow and "emotional" songs for the sake of being slow and
"emotional" (see: Moonlight Kissed) or meandering songs that can't quite decide what they
want to be and never hit that catchy/emotional/powerful crescendo
August Burns Red
Rescue & Restore
The Syncope Threshold
End of the Beginning
Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies
Your Starry Eyes Will Never Make Us Even
Great album. Unlike their previous efforts, which were really hit and miss in terms of me liking some songs, I don't think there's a song on this album that I truly dislike.
If you're familiar with any other Kevin Matisyn (vocalist) projects... including past Parabelle albums... you should know what to expect in terms of sound. Safe but catchy alt rock featuring his unique vocal style. Clever, poetic lyrics. The difference being that the album doesn't have a ton of weak spots or songs that flat out miss, just don't expect them to branch too far outside of their comfort zones.
My favorite tracks at the moment:
