I have never listened to BVB material up until now. Heard this. Three okay tracks with surprisingly good instrumentation. 16 rubbish mid tempo Nickelback rockers and pretentious F.E.A.R Transmission's that tell a rubbish story. This is bubblegum metal in every sense of the word, inoffensive, cliche'd and forgettable

Generic garbage. Nickleback vocals. Motley Crew image. Gross.

As someone who disliked BVB's first two albums, I found this album to be refreshing. Some of the lyrics were a bit cheesy as well as the transmission tracks, but catchy riffs, solos, and choruses make this worth listening to, even if you weren't a fan before.

Human beings, eh? We are a funny lot to be fair-to think that anyone could envision such a humongous piece of shit as this. But here we are in January 2013 and I am not happy to say that this is among the worst things I have ever heard and if you have any self respect, any understanding of how much of an atrocity Black veil Brides are to the music industry, you WILL buy this-just to snap it into two, and then another two, and then burn the motherfucker after that.

Honestly, anyone who hates this with enough passion to get butthurt on the internet about it probably hasn't heard it. It's cock rock with a few extra bells and whistles and an attempt to personally connect to the band's audience with some silly story about a girl and her nightmares. I'd suggest staying away, but if you're, for some reason, in the mood for some bland radio metal, go for it and take a peek!

Wretched and Divine is, believe it or not, probably the closest this band can get to creating an album that's kinda on the worthwhile side of this domain. Andy Biersack's vocal performance is still quite unbearable at times and the 'Transmission' tracks are merely an excuse to drag out the material, but thanks to the production quality, the instrumental work isn't really as powerless as it's made out to be. Had Black Veil Brides continued experimenting a bit like they did on here, I would've mostly tolerated their latest release.

A minor improvement over their previous two albums which is not exactly saying much. Still the usual bland thinly written teen girl appealing emo metal that you can expect from Black Veil Brides.

A complete trainwreck of an album from beginning to end that tries so hard yet fails so utterly. Each song is desperately trying to be some big, epic, rousing anthem yet every single lyric, melody, solo, and rhythm is so paint by the numbers, it's embarrassing. That's what Black Veil Brides do on this album, embarrass themselves.

BVB step up. Only to be knocked down by their own flawed perceptions. The Wretched and the Divine is like shoving a sword down someones throat - only to turn around and swallow the same blade. Also kudos to whoever broke the shoutbox page.

Really not that bad; there's some okay songs such as wretched and divine, but extremely bland and the transmission tracks are real cheesy and just kinda shitty.

''Bands rarely make records this huge anymore. It's impressive to hear one. Black Veil Brides might open up the Twitter age's minds. Truth is, Wretched And Divine stands out as a bona fide classic and it opens the doorway to even bigger things to come.'' lol artistdirect

cringey yes, but it is bvb. it's really not bad, but the singing is kinda annoying at points.

Again still painfully average, the guitar work has improved slightly, the band implement more instruments into this record, the violins help bolster and improve the songs they are in but the main problem still lies, every song mostly sounds the same.

I enjoyed this. Yes I did. Dunno why. Didn't like them before, especially the singer. The guitarists are pretty talented despite not really being unique. In The End surprised me so I checked out the album and I thought the interludes were iffy although I respect them for going big with this. Nothing better than good but there are some surprises.

Meh not that bad, their old material is worse. Band is extremely overrated though.

I believed in them after first single... but failed after album realese. Everything is definately sucks.
|1.5 very poor||Xavi | February 2nd 13|
This album is a mess in many ways. Far too long, unneeded pieces, a guitar player that seems to be on another plane from the rest of his cast. Nothing seems to make sense or add up here, except for the fact that this 19-track affair is destined to be a coaster.

an extremely mediocre and forgettable, albeit harmless album.
|1.5 very poor||ManintheBox | January 8th 13|
So I start off my listening experience of 2013 with seemingly the most generic and played out album ever in Black veil bride's (shitty fuckin name) wretched and divine. Every song is a blatant rip off of Avenged Sevenfold with a Children of Bodom inspired riff thrown in for good measure. And on some songs it even sounds like the vocalist is trying his best to channel Nickelback. At the end of the album you will literally have no recollection of this shit, which is one positive way to look at it I guess.

Ridiculously cheesy lyrics and actual fun musicianship makes for a bad album according to sputnik (you bunch of queefs). this is actually a really fun album that i enjoy with some great songs and musicianship. the violins add a hell of a lot of emotion to the music and andys voice has really been a huge improvement over set the world on fire, new years day rulez as does in the end
