With their debut full length, Every Time I Die makes an improvement in the department they had lacked in on the Botch-worshipping The Burial Plot Bidding War, which was the production. It sounds so much crisper here, and the vocals are not as raspy and irritating as they were before. This gives the band a chance to show what they have. The lyrics written by Keith Buckley are pretty interesting, and while the instrumentation still bears an obvious influence, the songwriting has improved as well. Still, there is a lack of a truly stand-out track, or even a stand-out moment on this record. The songs are solid, but they lack an identity, which causes them to bleed into each other and become indistinguishable. There's certainly a noticeable improvement, though, that the band had made from their EP on to this record, and the talent was there for them to expand this improvement on to the next record in their discography.
