This album is so good. AGATG came back real hard with an album that delivers to the fans of their older stuff as well as their most recent stuff. AGATG isn't for everyone which is great because the band isn't there to please everyone either. They're just a bunch of guys doing what they like. This time with twice as much energy. They brought back dual vocals, kept their goofiness and snappy techno parts. IMO one of the only non boring deathcore bands.
I can appreciate some of the humour on this record ("Balloon Battle" in particular is hilariously awesome), but overall Listen to the Color comes off as unfocused and most of the heavy parts (which make up the majority of the album) blur together. Also, I don't like the second vocalist. He sounds like a somewhat better version of the guy from Longshot, but in this case 'somewhat better' still means 'somewhat annoying.' 1.7
This album is fucking lethal. And weird as fuck. The dual vocal attack is what AGATG has been lacking all these
years and the quirky electronic and jazz breaks are in full disjointed force here, which for this album is a
compliment of the highest order.
The only advice I give to people these days is this: if you can listen to colors, then you should probably take up music as a career. You might possibly become a famous musician like many other synesthete.
