The Album starts off with Romance, which is just a bit of noise which turns into an acoustic guitar riff which then turns into some more noise. Then the first real song starts. HTMIBEFTTOU is a very strong song and sets the pase very well for the rest of the album. The first few songs are all very strong with interesting lyrics.
Track 3, Vampires Will Never Hurt You is a standout track on this record. If you've never heard them before, this would be a good song to download. It starts off very calm but gets faster and heavier every minute.
Another standout track is Our Lady Of Sorrows, which is just 2 minutes of pure joy. Catchy chorus and Gerard screams like I've never heard him do before at the end of the song.
The album gives you a little break in Early Sunsets Over Monroeville, another one of my favorites. This is a much slower song with a very catchy but repetitive riff through the whole song. For some strange reason not all the lyrics for this song are inside the booklet?
Another stand out track, which is also the longest, is Demolition Lovers. It is over 6 minutes long. The drums in this song are really great and suit the song very well. It starts off slow, but also gets heavier and faster towards the end. In the booklet it says that this is the only song where he doesn't write about killing his friend/girlfriend.
Overall: I enjoyed this album very much, even though it took a few listens to get used to. The only songs I don't really care for are: Skylines and Turnstiles and Cubicles. The musicianship is very good on this album and especially the drums and vocals stand out. Matt is a very original drummer and Gerard's vocals are like no one's I've ever heard.
Overall I'd give this album a strong 4/5. :thumb: It is definitely worth picking up. For fans of Thursday, Glassjaw, Alexisonfire, Thrice, etc.
