Review Summary: Falling in Reverse uses many elements to create a thrilling and diverse album.

4 of 19 thought this review was well written

As many of you know, Ronnie is an incredibly egoistic person and is easily influenced. The album in general has many elements that usually shouldn't belong together but let's take a little look on where the album was influenced from. Ronnie was dating a girl that Deuce, ex-member of the rap group Hollywood Undead, was dating. Perfect timing because Deuce got Radke to sing in his song "Nobody Likes Me" for his upcoming album "Nine Lives." Ronnie's rapping in the song got positive feedback from viewers and like a human being, he was probably encouraged by this. To top it all off, Hollywood Undead hosted tour "Blood In And Out" with Falling in Reverse. After hanging out with these thug-rappers, Ronnie picked up some ideas from them.

If there is one thing that rappers teach us- it is to never take their music seriously and you'll at least have a tolerable time. Out of all people, rappers probably have the worst lyrics ever. Ronnie, although not a total rapper, can write some really stupid things. Keep an open mind when listening to the album because lyrics like "I tried to choke my mom with my umbilical cord" are going to pop up. Despite all this, Radke is a capable person whether you admit it or not. He can harness any song to his doing.

If he wants an aggressive song with screaming, his growls, no more than average, can still appeal in songs like "Self-Destruct Personality." If he wants a pop-stylized song, his fluid voice can adapt to that too as we see in "It's Over When It's Over" and "Game Over." Hell, the band even made a country-inspired song called "Drifter," and it is not bad at it. His voice can also spread out to fit ballads such as "Keep Holding On." The instrumentals may be a step down in some songs, but it's the same concept. Not all songs have to have insane guitar-playing 24/7 for it to be fun. The album isn't trying to be hardcore guys so judge it for what it is. And if Ronnie wants to throw in some stupid rap verses to keep the energy, he delivers it fast-paced and fully with the exception of the poor song "Alone."

Furthermore, If Radke wants to create a stupidly fun and diverse album, it's safe to say that he brings it forth and it doesn't disappoint in what it tries to accomplish. Many say that the rap and similar elements ruin the album. One thing that must be realized is that these elements are used as a tool to create the art of the album. And art is undefined. It has no rules- no limits.

Not to sound mean, but it sounds like you're reviewing Ronnie rather then the band itself, But then again, that's FIR for you

This isn't badly written but the content itself is a little all over the place and basic.

This first paragraph is pretty irrelevant but still takes up about a third of the review.

This

ever.


is just ridiculous.


The third paragraph is the only one which really talks about the music but it doesn't go into much
depth at all and focuses almost exclusively on Ronnie, and avoid lines like

The album isn't trying to be hardcore guys so judge it for what it is.


which are just clumsy.

I'm gonna pos but only cos everyone else is gonna overreact. This isn't an awfully written review
for a first but you need some practice.

I don't get it, does the pos button signify approval or pity?
Because this review is awfully written.

Did you read anything I said? This is his first review, and considering the vast majority of first reviews it isn't that awful. Sure, not great, but no-one is at first, so you don't want to ward him off just because his first attempt is mediocre.

Was this Review Well Written? Yes | No

Edit: Guess it doesn't have to be a good review, to be well written. Though, I don't think this is
well written either.
