If The Fire showed Senses Fail hinting at the aggressive side in their sound, Renacer shows the band
fully embracing it. This album is relentless, with the riffs hitting hard and Buddy's vocal performance being his
most intense and ethereal to date. His screams have never sounded better, and the vocal melodies are very
well placed. The lineup changes have steered the band more in the direction of a hardcore sound, and it
proves to be a welcome change on what just might be the best album of their career.

For better or worse, this is a Senses Fail we haven't yet seen. This is Senses Fail at their heaviest and most aggressive. Buddy Nielsen puts forth one of his most impressive vocal performances yet, spewing forth some damn surprising borderline growls. The musicianship has been upped as well, with a much more abrasive edge than before. In terms of quality, it might not necessarily be their best album, but it's definitely a refreshing change of pace for the group. rAlso, "Holy Mountain" is one of the best songs they've ever written.

I used to be afraid I'd become a hardcore band, now I embrace it.

I appreciate any band that isn't afraid of change or progression, and these New Jersey natives proved they are doing just that-- progressing-- with this release. Renacer is Senses Fail's heaviest record yet. It is also consistent, well-performed, and all around excellent. Furthermore, it contains some of the catchiest tracks of the year, and Buddy's vocals have really improved.

Call me a SF purist... or a SF softy... I miss the days where Buddy sung in English and actually sung. It doesn't make you hardcore if you scream your guts out... Oh wait it does doesn't it?

Senses Fail puts out a good record that tries to be so much more than it is. They drop a lot of the elements that made their sound so original and emotional, but Buddy Nielsen's challenging lyrics certainly haven't gone anywhere. Despite how predictable it can be, Renacer is mildly consistent and fairly enjoyable.

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★

This is not what i expected from senses fail. Definitely a more intense heavy sound that I am loving. You can still tell its sense fail, but only just.

Very big step for this band after a bit of being stagnant.
|5.0 classic||Tyler James McMullen | April 17th 13|
an album where I can honestly say that I like every single song and they all bring something different to the table.
|2.0 poor||Curse. | April 5th 13|
Oh hey Senses Fail turned into a shitty metalcore band fun stuff

This record is a grower. Loved it more after several listens.

Senses Fail finally give us the album we all hoped they would make. Chaotic, fun, catchy and cohesive.

I had serious doubts about this band for years now. They were a good emo band on their first album (even though I dislike that genre), but then they released a string of really disappointing albums. However, Renacer sees the New Jersey band take an actually interesting path on here, trying to sound a LOT more aggresive, darker, and "in-your-face", resulting in an actually really good rock/metal album with solid hardcore foundations. Think Rise Against, Thrice, Parkway Drive and Chevelle mixed together. Not the best album of the year, but definitely a great one.

I must be living in a bizarro world because in the real world Senses Fail would never become more heavier than Neurosis, Mastodon, and Intronaut....
|4.5 superb||HypedMerchant | March 28th 13|
crazy cuz both Silverstein and Senses Fail (who are my favorite post-hardcore bands in this category of post-hardcore) released my favorite albums by them shortly after each other.

I hope to 5 this one day that would mean it's a classic bioootch!

Is this the same band that did let it enfold you and still searching?? because it doesn't sound anything like it. this is a massive disappointment. So sad to see a band slowly fade away after every album they release.
|4.5 superb||A$AP Schrader STAFF | March 19th 13|
Their heaviest release yet, and also their most positive. Senses Fail continues to show why they're still at the top of the post-hardcore game even after nearly 11 years.
