3.5 greatchriskrispy | May 22nd 14

Generic, but not in the bad sense. They are essentially a Christian TGI but they just do something right that makes them rise above every other breakdown-laden melocore band ever.

2.5 averageRiver Tam | January 9th 14

How does this have a 3.5 on here? It's incredibly generic.

4.5 superbSeraph | July 6th 12

I am sorry for all 'generic'-proclaimers but this record is not mindless chugging, it's chugging on purpose. On purpose of emotion, anger and hope. It utilizes brutality to showcase feelings and it does damn well. Consider records like FURY AND THE FALLEN ONES (The Ghost Inside), CHANGES (For The Fallen Dreams) or MESSENGERS (August Burns Red) - yes, it's that good of a chugfest. If The Ghost Inside would play great breakdowns on their new CD (which they don't!), these would sound like the Gideon ones over here. Awesome intervals and time signatures e.g. like at the end of "Bad Blood" aren't the usual metalcore listen, because not every band is capable of bringing technical skills to the table when it comes to junz. What's left is a hilariously straight forward record that features some of the finest modern mosh moments imaginable. A huge improvement from COSTS and definitely a record that makes you wanna break stuff afterwards and/or during the listen. Give it a spin and don't hesitate to move your body. Brain off, junz on.

Its not as good as Costs, but its progression. Its just way more melodic compared to Costs. Its their first album theyve written with Daniel McWhorter (Formerly of the Advocate) as their vocals as opposed to Costs.

2.5 averageNonApplicable | July 1st 12

Gideon conform to become even more generic =(. Unfortunately the infectious choruses found
on Costs were stripped out. The melodic leads have been dumbed down resulting in
the (often mindless)chugging as the only distinguishing factor between songs. An abundance
of breakdowns desensitizes what could have otherwise emphasized the impactful production
value of the instrumentation. Ultimately the band's lack of variety makes for a forgettable
listen.

3.0 goodInsecureGorilla | June 25th 12

The Ghost Inside if they were christcore. It's good, but compared to TGI's album this year this is nothing.
