Review Summary: as clear as day
"If you think about it, it could always be worse."
Leading with your nose-cocked, shoulders straight, eyes averted seems to be the way to live. You're abiding by standards. Standards aren't made for the sake of hierarchy, or organization, but to put things into perspective. Shield up. Can't let em' see you cry, that's not what a real man would do.
Chicago-based feedback junkies Lord Snow seem to disagree. Among other things like the quiet/LOUD nature of most screamo acts, there's the permanent vulnerability inside the cloud of dissonance screams and spoken-word soliloquies. Not the first, definitely not the last, but it's purely empirical. A certain individual pertinence drawn upon by the same things that bug me and you. Difference is, the shield's down.
