Yes, the drums sound like crap and sure, you could even argue that all the songs sound the same on this thing. However, for those really into that relatively new brand of metalcore (you know, the one dubbed as progressive, with all the melodic wank and djenty rhythms?), Reshape Reason will certainly be a treat.

Elitist have replaced their vocalist for a second time and dropped one of their guitarists,
thus becoming a 4-piece group. The music of Reshape | Reason falls somewhere in between the
metalcore sound of Caves and the djent influence on Earth. Fortunately, Elitist manages to
take the best of both avenues and compile it into an extremely hard-hitting slab of
metalcore.

This album tickled my fancy the same way that Erra tickled my fancy last year. Just like Erra, it was the riffs that really grabbed my attention. Elitist, hands down, gets the award for the best riffs of the year. Guitarist Julian Rodriguez is an absolute master at the guitar, creating beautiful melodic riffs throughout the album. Throw in some stunning solos and equally good atmospheric passages and you have yourself one of the best albums of the year. Now it's not just Rodriguez pulling the weight, thats not the case at all. Drummer Ben Kazenoff shows a very strong performance in his debut with the band, as well as new vocalist Chris Balay. While Balay stays with the mid-range vocals on the vocals, he brings out the occasional deep lows every once and awhile. This album just never stops hitting from start to finish. The band made a music video for "Unto the Sun," but to be far, any song on the album could have been made into a music video. It's hard to pick just one single off the album because they are all equally great.

2.5 averageCrustbugas | September 26th 12

Overall, pretty disappointed in the album as a whole. Not only has Elitist not been able to find a decent
vocalist that even remotely pulls off the power and emotion of Jacob Katz's voice but they haven't been able
to keep up musically since 'Caves'. The song writing is completely over saturated with ambient yet
uninspiring leads that block out alot of the generally more interesting riffing. It just feels like there is a lack
of variety in the album as a whole. When i heard Unto the Sun and then Reshape Reason i literally thought
my computer bugged out because i thought it was replaying Unto the Sun again, unfortunately my computer
didn't crap out and in fact Reshape Reason has a strikingly similar introduction. Either Elitist is still naive to
what made Caves so great and are struggling to re create a record of that caliber again or they are truly set
out on their own path to do whatever they see fit(which i can respect but am not digging the new style).
Elitist was probably going to be my favorite band but now with 2 disappointing releases, ('Earth' being the
first disappointment) i'm not sure i can say that anymore ):
