Pro's- 'The Image of the Invisible'. Con's- 'The Rest of the Album'. I bought this album thinking that i would listen to it for hours upon hours, however after flicking through the songs i soon realised that i had been greatly dissapointed by the poor effort Thrice had put into the album. I do not like the way that Thrice have turned with prolonged computer generated intro's, i mean why don't they just start the song all ready its ridiculous. I loved 'the Artist in the Ambulance' and 'The Illusion of Safety' they were awsome but i dont know what the were thinking when they wrote this, i was truly dissapointed but im still going to look out for upcoming thrice and hope tat they go back to their roots

Fair to Midland Fables From a Mayfly
Fair to Midland Arrows and Anchors
This is a different Fair to Midland than what we got on Fables. Between a four year wait and a label change, I'm not surprised. This record is generally heavier, but strangely, it's also more accessible; just about every track would be right at home on the radio. This is partly due to Darroh Sudderth's reserved performance; he just doesn't get as extreme as he did on Fables. There's no quick octave-hopping here, but he still rocks the microphone. Unfortunately a change in the production has resulted in his vocals being a bit buried in the mix; the guitars muddy it up a little too much for my liking. The song writing is a bit more straightforward too but they still manage to keep you guessing with their quirkiness. However, don't let the negative feedback sway you; this is Fair to Midland. This is an awesome record in the end.

Naked City Naked City
Sometimes, music is just boring. Despite there being a vast plethora of styles and structures, eventually you're bound to run into similarities. If you try real hard, you can predict most songs. John Zorn seems to have set out to demolish this cardinal rule with his band Naked City's self-titled romp of madness. This is like jazz, except without reserve - or boundaries, for that matter. At first, some of the more experimental sections will deter even the most versatile of music fans, but in due time and with repeated listens, these untamed musicians at work will have their way with you. Forget everything you know about music. Open your ears; this is what madness sounds like.

Protest The Hero Fortress
Honestly what do you expect with a band that creates something like Kezia? This album is both a continuation and an improvement of what was found on the last album, in a technical sense anyway. Rody's vocals are much better, there is more technical wankery and it's heavier. What's not to like? Well, the downgraded cohesiveness for one. Fortress presents itself as a huge, bombast whirlwind of a poppy metal album that is musically impressive, yet somehow I find that it simply doesn't have as much as Kezia did underneath all the craziness. There's not really anything negative to point out here, a factor that when combined with how fun it is to sing along to warrants the high rating, but I can't shake the feeling that Fortress never comes out of the clouds and back to Earth where I can connect with it on the level I could with Kezia.

I don't care how much nu metal sucks, or how dated this record sounds now, it still makes a statement: This nine-piece from the boring state of Iowa have a lot to say, in a way that no one's said it before. Is it kind of cheesy? Yeah. Is there unnecessary percussion? Yeah. Are the lyrics one dimensional? Yeah. Does this album still rule? Unfortunately, if I'm going to be honest, I have to say it does. All their other albums are a different story, but this one is awesome.

Thrice The Artist in the Ambulance
Thrice are pretty much masters of marrying pop and melody to harshness and brutality. A very accessible release, The Artist in the Ambulance combines the best of both worlds and does many other good cliches. The instrumentation is almost always seamless and complex while being extremely catchy and effective. Of course that's expected when it comes to Thrice, and with this album, they essentially create a more polished version of the sound found on one of the best post hardcore albums in the history of the genre, The Illusion of Safety.

Thrice Beggars
I guess Thrice is all about progression. I didn't think they could do any more of that after The Alchemy Index, but they seemed to expand on that sound plus make it new with Beggars, which disappointed me at first. But after some more listens, I've come to realize that this album is really a whole new Thrice, and it's a sweet, original sound. Give Thrice two points for making an original album and a bonus point for still sounding themselves, because this nigh-impossible task is exactly what they did with Beggars.

Underoath Lost in the Sound of Separation
It's almost like Underoath know how to progress with each album; this one retains the template from Define the Great Line but adds a more prominent pop appeal, yet seems heavier than its predecessor at times. The intense moments are more intense, the slow, ambient sections are longer and more ambient, and the pop hooks are ever present. The best thing about Lost in the Sound of Separation is there are no glaring weaknesses. I mean Nick Greer doesn't like them, but not everyone is Thrice or Glassjaw!

New directions are always good in theory, but this direction just doesn't work for Coheed. It's almost like they wanted to forget who they were so they could use a bunch of 80s metal riffs and be even more over the top. Even though the album fails in its new direction, the core elements of Coheed still remain, with a foundation of rock with pop punk, metal and prog always sticking around for the party. Claudio's songwriting barely saves the album from being average.

While there's still glimpses into Toby Driver's genius here, the overall product doesn't have much direction.

It's not necessarily a bad album, but it's not good either.

The dirty Southern sound on this album is fun, catchy and just great in general. But all you need to listen to is the first song to hear the whole album. Unless you want to listen to a Skynyrd rip in "Just Wanted to Make Mother Proud". If you don't mind getting a lot of one thing, I have no reason to disagree with you if you get this. Just don't expect creativity, diversity or dynamics.

Serj Tankian Elect the Dead
I have always been a fan of this man's voice. He's so good that he just makes Daron sound that much worse. So the vocals on Elect the Dead are guaranteed to be great; no worries there. What about his songwriting? Well, not much has changed since his System days; it's still that quirky, political madness he's known for. The problem? Somewhere along the way, he lost the ability to be interesting. I have never been so bored listening to something Serj Tankian is involved with. Perhaps the saddest thing about this album is even though each song has its own identity, most of them are so boring that despite being unique, they all run together. Have you seen the video for "Sky is Over"? It seems he has run out of creative ideas in all areas. Even the greatest fall out of their prime eventually.

The only thing worse than run of the mill metalcore is run of the mill metalcore that tries to be "mathematic" or "technical". There is nothing redeemable about this album; the band can't even brag about recording live without breaks like they did on their debut. Stay clear of The Fiancee.
