this record really is just...pathetic. vocals suck, the music sucks, the production sucks. its not painful to listen to, but its a fucking joke. the least inspired sounding album of all time.

Okay, we all get it... Alex Varkatzas just can't growl so well to save his own life. But to be fair, this doesn't make all of Atreyu's releases an instant bust; take Visions for example. It is perhaps the group's most underdeveloped effort, though there's something quite endearing about it. The songs have more of a punk influence, with this band occasionally sounding like a poor man's Death by Stereo. Instrumentally speaking, this release is pretty decent and it resonates just fine with Alex's screams, no matter how off-putting they may be. Had Atreyu continued with this style and fire their frontman, they wouldn't receive nearly as much snark and disdain as they do now.

Is this album a joke? They don't even try to play their instruments well. The lyrics are even worse. It's just a bunch of rich kids from Orange County, who have everything they could ever want, whine for half an hour about how they'd rather be dead. Listening to this album (if it can even be called that), I start to sympathize with this whole "rather be dead" concept. Everything about this album, from the terrible vocals (See chorus of "Bleeding Hearts Shed No Tears") to the confusing and ridiculous titles ["Love is Illness", "Of Gods and Monsters", or, my personal favourite, "The Dinosaurs Became Extinct (And You're a Fossil)"] is completely intolerable and downright laughable. This album is a failure in every sense of the word.

Utterly atrocious. Seriously what the fuck? What are these guys trying to pull? It sounds like a bunch of retarded white kids who are pissed at their parents for not giving them their allowance this month. I mean come on, this is pathetic.

The musical aspect shows potential (the intro to bleeding hearts shed no tears is pretty cool and dissonant, even with alex growling) but generally the vocals are so frickin awful they ruin everything. I'm not even sure if Alex knew what "beats" or "measure" meant at this time. He is just screaming around with no sense of direction

GirlCore, plain and simple.
This band is like a bad date movie - take your lady, take her home and do her shady.
