Pierce the Veil Ranked

Now that I've had some time to properly digest TJOL, figured it'd be a good time to take a look back at this (somewhat) divisive post-hardcore group!
5Pierce the Veil
A Flair for the Dramatic

A classic case of a band only improving since their debut. Not that this album is bad per se, but it's definitely a bit rough around the edges and doesn't feel as refined as their later releases.

HIGHLIGHTS: Currents Convulsive, I'd Rather Die Than Be Famous, The Balcony Scene
FINAL SCORE: 3 out of 5
4Pierce the Veil
The Jaws of Life

I feel like this album's rank is a testament to how good PTV normally is. I recently published a review that (mostly) sung the praises of this album, and though my opinion hasn't changed since, it's difficult to place TJOL any higher than their albums from 2010 to 2016.

HIGHLIGHTS: Death of An Executioner, Flawless Execution, Resilience, Emergency Contact
FINAL SCORE: 3.3 out of 5 (Down 0.1 from last month, lol)
3Pierce the Veil

If I was just rating the album based on its beginning and ending, and just ignore the somewhat boring stretch in the middle, this would easily be top 2. But the stretch from song 5-8 all blend together a little too much.

HIGHLIGHTS: Dive In, Texas is Forever, Floral and Fading, Sambuka, Song For Isabelle
FINAL SCORE: 3.8 out of 5
2Pierce the Veil
Selfish Machines

Man, talk about a grower! Not sure why I disliked this so much when it came out (maybe because so many of my friends were obsessed with it) but nowadays I love to spin this every now and then. This album and #1 are, in my opinion, PTV's greatest stretch as a band.

HIGHLIGHTS: The Boy Who Could Fly, Bulletproof Love, Stay Away From My Friends, I Don't Care if You're Contagious, Disasterology
FINAL SCORE: 4.2 out of 5
1Pierce the Veil
Collide with the Sky

When I first joined Sput, I wrote a review for this album claiming that it was "musically brilliant but lyrically exhausting" because I thought the depressing lyrical themes were a bit too much to stomach. But now I've grown up and learned to appreciate it. There's truly not a skippable moment on this album, and I've grown to appreciate it as the post-hardcore classic it truly is.

HIGHLIGHTS: Hell Above, King For A Day, Tangled In The Great Escape, The First Punch, One Hundred Sleepless Nights, Stained Glass Eyes and Colorful Tears, Hold On Till May
FINAL SCORE: 5 out of 5
