Review Summary: ALBUM OF THE YEAR.

What happens when a bunch of musicians more focused on their image decide to start a band? These A**holes have chosen to dilute our already disgusting excuse for a music scene. To say the least, this album is GARBAGE. How would you best describe the sound of this band/album? Here goes, picture the most watered down version of metalcore with cliche' riffs and the sh*ttiest vocals imaginable.

This album starts out with an introduction that is specifically targeted to appeal to angst ridden teens(this record is for all the outcasts, never give in blah blah blah) and as you know, this is usually a sign that a band plans to construct their lyrical content to connect with the young in order to sell records.


The Music:

The band's songs are what i would describe as, "radio heavy" or "very commercial metal". While I was listening to the first three songs i realized something, they all sounded so similar that i couldn't tell when the track changed. Ten out of the eleven songs sound EXACTLY the same in structure, the riffs use the same format(typical metalcore riff done in the most generic way possible serves as the verse, been done a thousand times strummed 3 or 4 chord chorus, 90% clean vocals but with light screams thrown in to draw the crowd of "screamo" fans, and lyrics designed to attract a legion of teenage females and overly emotional males) and the one song that sounds different(the mortician's daughter) is just as bad as the rest of this album.

How is the musicianship? Honestly, the players are more than competent when in comes to playing their instruments, the guitarist can obviously play decent rhythm parts(even though they're overly generic and recycled throughout the record) and he plays several fairly good leads on the album, the drummer is obviously the best musician in this band and she attempts at keeping the songs interesting with her parts(interesting footwork on some of the choruses) but good drums cannot make up for sh*tty songwriting, the bass player is basically non existent, and the singer is simply awful. Andy Sixx uses the exact same melodies in each one of the songs and he has absolutely no range whatsoever. In addition to this, his screams are equally bad and sound like they have been altered quite a bit in the studio to accommodate for his lack of talent.

In brief, don't even bother listening to any of the songs off of this album unless you're looking for a big laugh. This band is yet another example of the new wave of bands that achieve success because of their image instead of the music they create.
