Miss May I Deathless
This is the best album Miss May I has released in my opinion. Certainly miles better than the last two. Its of course not taking many steps out of the box, but its far more varied than their recent efforts. Neff's cleans have gone from unbearable to actually decent enough for the hooks to succeed extraordinarily well on some songs, despite the fact that I doubt he can pull it off live. But with AILD gone, this is definitely an album to check out for anyone into fun and simple aggressive metalcore. Honestly at this point, it may not be saying much, but I think this album is the best of its kind.

The Artificial is the best track
Phinehas Till the End
Contender for metalcore album of the year. My favorites are Forever West and Till the End, but this album is gold from start to finish, though the three interludes are pointless as fuck. Dead Choir and Tetelestai, the two singles, are by far the least interesting tracks. Seven shakes it up and serves as an excellent building track, starting quieter and building to a more climactic finish.
August Burns Red Found in Far Away Places
The lyrics on this and all of ABR's discography paint a pretty awesomely enlightened perspective of Christianity. Philosophically very sweet. Musically, even better. Martyrs brings the fire, and countless others kick ass as well. The interludes are also sensational, but honestly I would've preferred slightly shorter ones, especially on the later tracks. Broken Promises and Vanguard are two awesome tracks that would've been even sicker with a bit less instrumental, and a bit more vocals. But that's my opinion. Overall, outstanding effort from one of the best bands in the game.
Breaking Benjamin Dark Before Dawn
Have never listened to a BB record straight through before... definitely hilarious. So repetitive. Probably won't be listening to anything on this many more times, but I really couldn't have expected any better. And Close to Heaven even sounds different.

Well played Benjamin Burnley, well played.
Between the Buried and Me Coma Ecliptic
Cannot get into this band at all. May be due to my lack of playing an instrument, but sounds like this band is just trying to impress me with their musicianship, but it just sounds like shit. And worse, it seems like they could actually make music that sounded good if they weren't so hellbent on trying to show their musical talents off.
Hundredth Free
This album definitely suffers from its overall sound being a bit soft. Unravel, Isolation, Beggar, and Daze all sound remarkably similar and seem to be the sound they wanted to refine this time, but it doesn't work all that well for me. And all those songs are among the worst the album has. But standouts, especially Burdens, end up making this one of my favorite hardcore releases of the year anyway.
Young Guns Ones and Zeros
