Huge letdown of an album. The music's just as good as the album art. Counterparts goes for more of a straight-forward hardcore sound that totally disrupts what they have been doing on previous releases. On previous releases, the melodies stood out more and actually added a sense of passion to their songs. On certain tracks on this album, it just seems like they add a melodic part at one point of the song that just seems out of place. Best song on the album is Solace and that's because it sounds like it could be off their opus 'The Difference Between Hell and Home'. I think one can gain an understanding of the direction of this album by listen

Funeral Advantage Body is Dead
There's one word that comes to mind when describing this album: 'Lifeless'. How can something sound so good and yet be lifeless at the same time? It amazes me how this album is able to pull something like this off. The arpeggiated guitar playing throughout this album are reminiscent of acts like American Football mixed with a dreamy atmosphere of bands like Wild Nothing. The keys provide a backdrop for the songs which give it such a unique and almost daunting atmosphere. The vocals are also on point. I love how he can be subdued at some points but then on some tracks he increases his range to provide sweet pop vocal melodies. Favorite track i
Hail the Sun Wake
Diggin this band HARD. Love how much the vocals sound like Anthony Green and the fact that he plays complex drum parts while belting out catchy as hell hooks is very impressive. This band wreaks talent and they are going to be a huge success in the near future. Definitely would have been one of my favorite releases of 2014.

Guitar hooks, guitar hooks, guitar hooks..this album is insanely catchy with great grooves and melodies. The only gripe with the album is how synthetic everything kind of sounds on the album but the consistency from front to back makes up for it
