It doesn't have anything on it that really comes close to the best of Career Suicide (maaaaaybe Bulletproof Tiger or Skid Rock), but every song hints towards another outstanding full length. Production also is not up to snuff with Career Suicide, and needs the extra shed that they threw in (again) to be amped up a bit. I'm kind of nitpicking tho, if I compared every cd of this style to Career Suicide then...well I'd be ignorant and stupid. This EP is a great teaser too hold fans (new and old) over until the new album.
Alexisonfire Crisis
This album was a sleeper for me, I didn't dig on it much during the first couple passive listens. However, since the album has sunk in and I've really dissected it, it has tremendous replay value. Everyone has stepped up their game on this cd. The vocal interplay is perfect, the drumming is spot on, and the band is as tight as ever. From the heavier songs (To A Friend, Crisis) to the poppier ones (Boiled Frogs, This Could be Anywhere in the world), this album shines through and through. AoF really hit the mark on this one.

Oleander really came into their own as songwriters on this album. Vocalist Thomas Flowers shows incredible diversity, as well as intelligent lyricism and shines at centerstage for this album. The band holds their own behind him with great melody and backbone, giving the band the extra "umph" needed to push them past rock mediocrity, and in turn, produce a truly solid album. From hard rockers to soulful ballads to simple acoustics...this cd delivers on all levels and should be checked out by anyone.

After the tragedy that was Faso Latido, ASL took a step backwards and went to what they do best on their self-titled. After the much better (if not top-heavy) self-titled, they took it a couple steps further. For "Rattlesnake!" ASL stripped down to a four piece, Dan handled all the guitar parts, Joe got sober, and they took a page from Every Time I Die. The result is a much more focused, hard rocking, and fun ASL. If you liked their self-titled, then you'll at the very least enjoy this just as much. Oh yeah, and it turns out that B. Spears can rock, and rock well.

There just feels like there is something missing from this album. I think the big thing is that Cove's vocals, while his pitch and voice are great...he just doesn't vary/do enough with his melodies and meters. Another thing is that it feels like A. Rod's drumming is a lot more harnessed on here. I miss the more creative and less predictable patterns of the Translating the Name EP. Finally, there is hardly any screaming on this album. It's not missed a whole lot, but there are moments that would really be heightened and accented if punctuated with a scream. Not that it's a bad album...The guitar work is fun and the band is extremely tight. Cove's vocals are very good and the cd as a whole is extremely catchy.

It's a decent enough album, but beyond the standouts of Nothing Ever Hurt Like You, Broken Strings, and If You Don't Want To Love me...there isn't really anything that's truly great. Everything else is good for a couple spins, but not much more.

This is by no means a bad album, but Rise Against have been getting less aggressive since Siren Song of the Counter Culter and it isn't serving them well. They've always been at their best when rocking out full boar. Now don't get me wrong, there are some great tracks here. Collapse is classic Rise Against and Entertainment brings the aggressive tones back out and even brings something new to the table for them. Hell, Savior is one of the best songs they've ever done. And while there's nothing particularly bad on here, outside of 3 or 4 tracks(Really depending on if you like Hero of War) there isn't really anything that is going to grab you and keep you coming back.
