One of Clint Boge's new bands. It's okay, mostly a shittier, slightly heavier version of The Butterfly Effect, although some of that heaviness is washed out thanks to lackluster production. Clint's vocals are mostly worse too. The last couple of tracks are pretty good and interesting though.

This is probably their densest album to date, it'll take many listens to unravel itself. Sometimes it can be hard to tell where one song ends and another begins. So while it doesn't live up to the unbelievable greatness of their early recordings, it's still a pretty fantastic listen. I'm not even sure TK is capable of less than great.

I'll admit I'm still in the midst of new love and I may/may not lower the rating in due time, but as it stands this certainly holds up to Intimacy and Silent Alarm, if not quite as good as Weekend. For the record, Silent Alarm is my least favourite.

Profoundly depressing, it'll send you revisiting your most painful memories. Yet, there's just enough sprinkling of hope to stop it being a form of self-harm; it's more a tool for catharsis.
La Dispute Wildlife3.5
Overlong and tedious at times (it shouldn't take until the second last song for the point to come across), it still packs a bunch and most of Dreyer's lyrics are just dying to be screamed back by a sweaty, crowded bar. The instrumentation has stepped back from the spotlight a little too far, settling for quite noodling instead of forceful riffing which really works a lot better for them. Still, I'LL SCREAM YOUR NAMES UNTIL I DIE!

In Flames Sounds of a Playground Fading3.5
The problem here isn't In Flames being overly generic, or just plain 'bad'. No, the issue is a lot weirder than that. In Flames wants to hip and young, but they're too old to know how to make it work. This album is a mess of ideas misshapenly put together with shitty chorus' and old-school solos. Sometimes it works, like on A New Dawn and sometimes it really really doesn't, like the title track. My rating will probably drop once I get over the fanboyishness. Plus, Ander's voice is even more tired and out of place than ever before. It's not his fault, but it's true.

Underoath Disambiguation3.5
A general step down from their last two efforts. It's still a solid and enjoyable album, but just about every aspect of the music is less than what it once was. The drums are less driving and original, Spencer's vocals have lost (some) of their intensity and the guitars aren't nearly as crushing and atmospheric. Disambiguation is a collection of songs rather than a cohesive, tension-ladden album.

A strange mix of experimental and mainstream rock, with a hint of math. What it lacks with catchy hooks, it makes up for with groove and energy. This is not the same band as before though, the atmospheric keys have been toned down considerably and the overall record has a much heavier feel than their older stuff.
There are plenty of suprises though - like the slight technoy beat in Salem or the acoustic interlude in Bullets and Blue Eyes. This is a solid release and hopefully an indication of much bigger things to come.

Great album, one of those rare ones where the second half surpases the first by orders of magnitude. The first half is still good, mainly due to the two openers, but overall it has nothing on 'You Were the Cancer' 'Time's Arrows' or 'Love Has Led Us Astray'.
