|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!
|5||Pierce 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

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)

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

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

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
|Feel awkward being one of the main defends of TJOL on this site, but even I gotta admit it's right where it belongs on this list. |
|Ayyy, nice! Also, glad to see some Floral and Fading love too|
|Collide with the Sky is a classic|
|@MoM - I never understood the people who shat on that song just for being different. It's easily a top song off Misadventures. |
@Veninblazer - I fought it for so long but in hindsight realize I was just being a contrarion. I feel like the more time passes, the more love CWTS will get.
|Floral and Fading is a top4 misadventures track only topped by dive in, texas is forever and the Divine zero (which are all written in the more classic PTV style)|
|3.25 is a fair score for TJOL. Album is fine and an enjoyable listen, but I dont see myself ever returning to it over their other albums.|
|@Feather - I mostly agree with you about TJOL, I feel like I'm only going to return to the songs I like but I can't imagine listening to the whole album very often. |
|2 is 1 solely for the immense amount of nostalgia i have tied to caraphernalia|
|BUT WHAT IF I CAN'T FORGET YOUUUUU|
|I’LL BURN YOUR NAME INTO MY THROOOAT|
