no, but i feel with emotive hardcore you should be able to pick out what they are trying to convey emotionally. beau navire's appeared stagnant and contrived to me on their releases. it's almost as if they wanted to make aggressive music but though it'd be better received if they injected a few "moments" in ever track; some post-rock tinged riff at the beginning of every track (until the band bluntly goes berserk, every time) or all these fucking interludes that don't seem to lead into or from anything and leaving something to be desired. it doesn't help that the song lengths make all of this pretty forgettable. them attempting this genre just seems quite gimmicky to me.

i would've rated it lower but i actually think these guys are talented, they just aren't approaching music in a way that suits them.

I can see what you're saying, though "attempting the genre" is a little inaccurate just because they've been in several screamo bands before it(i wrote haikus about cannibalism in your yearbook is one that might even top beau navire).



i dunno i just disagree though, i feel like most bands that do the post-rock thing just have these really long tracks and obvious transitions that make it feel contrived and predictable. all the quiet to loud moments on this album feel really natural and fluid to me, plus i just like that they can condense so much intensity and technicality into shorter song lengths. i like it when a band can build into something huge, yet fade out before i'm really able to seize said moment. i dunno too many screamo bands these days try to create something huge and symphonic, i prefer it when i can remember screamo albums by some crazy brief moment, rather than one riff that's just expanded and expanded.

though i do like post-rock tinged screamo, don't get me wrong, i just think the sound has been abused and that beau navire have really helped in taking screamo back to more hardcore, rugged roots.

I agree with Eno regarding the draw of this album. It's all about those small moments that really grab you in each track rather than impactful moments within more expansive song lengths (as you see many post-rock influenced screamo acts preferring nowadays).
