I Heart The Amity Affliction. Awesome band, awesome album.

3.5 greatcharlie15 | September 9th 12

The concept of this album has been pulled off magnificently.

2.0 poorAntigen | April 1st 13

This album doesn't really stand out from the post-hardcore soup as it were, but still manages to deal with rsubjects that will connect with people in their latter teen years, which will lead to it being popular. It has very rstandard, generic, but catchy song structure/ lyrics. The major problem for me is the lyrics, even though rAhren is a great singer most of the lyrics he sings are rather cheesy, for lack of a better word, and become rboring after a few listens.

What a dull affair. Couldn't even make it through half of this album.

5.0 classicliekmothstoflames | February 20th 14

Emotional and heartfelt. For a band I found out about from Tumblr, it's pretty great. (I'll probably change my opinion when I'm out of this band's target audience, however.

3.5 greatDrKok2Puss | January 12th 13

They have a great sound, listen to this album if you like that sound because there is a lot of it. The Amity Affliction's fatal flaw on this album is that all the songs really sound the same. That's what pushed me to purchase only a few songs off iTunes rather than whole album.

0.0 My valentine isn't the only thing that's bleeding. My ears | November 16th 12

I'll be there in a heartbeat whoa oh, I'll be there in a heartbeat whoa oh. Pretty polished, rbut some songs are pretty solid and the screamed vocals are pretty good. The cleans sound rvery robotic, though.

Flowerbomb sounds like like old amity but the rest is quite meh.

3.0 goodMegaJake1024 | October 2nd 12

Great album. Pretty surprised they're not very popular. Pretty much like hardcore blink-182 with better lyrics. rrThe bonus track Too Legit To Quit, cover of Born To Die, is best song on the album. So if you haven't heard rthat song, check it out.rEdit: Apparently Too Legit To Quit is now called Born To Die btw.

Bump

3.5 great01011 | September 7th 12

It's the amity affliction being the amity affliction. The existing fans will no doubt adore it, but if you're not a fan you probably won't like this.

Bump

3.5 greatG.M.B. | September 7th 12

Like other people have already mentioned, this album has its stupendous moments where the passion they put into making this record bleeds through. But there are many other moments, particularly towards the end of the album, that are just bland and forgettable. rAlso of note is the increasing amount of breakdowns. While they were prevalent before, they stick out more on this album and are utilized to a much higher degree. rOverall, a great concept with a bit of lack in the execution department.

Bump

4.5 superbPeriL | September 6th 12

It is really annoying how over produced Ahren is because the dude can sing. And yea, I am only on the 4th track but it does sound insanely similar to Youngbloods. Which isn't that bad, since it's arguably my favorite album.

Bump

2.5 averageNikkolae | September 6th 12

wtf so many fives....

Bump

3.5 greatJosh Howe | September 6th 12

Album is pretty good. Ahren's vocals although overproduced still in my opinion put to shame a lot of other clean vocalists in this genre. Lyrics have an extremely personal meaning to the screamer Joel Birch. Guitar has no real special moments and the drummer is really talented listen for them in the title track. Solid album.

Bump

3.5 greatTyler Christian Pifer | September 5th 12

This album will not be a 1.5, but it will not be a 5 either. Ahren's vocals are over produced just a little bit and it sounds like a Youngbloods part 2, but with a concept.
