3.0 goodthedrunkestlandscape | February 6th 13

Trying to live up to the hype set forth by bands like Brand New, Manchester Orchestra, and Thrice is a tricky proposal. You set yourself up on a pedestal up until the release date and then hope once it's there you can stay standing. Shone's heatthing is an interesting and varied album though lacks the cohesive nature that would grant it a higher rating. Many complain of the vocals as being "grating" or "too much" but for the purposes of Shone they fit right in. At times you wish they'd show constraint and be more user-friendly but as we've learned by now that's not what Shone is going for. They want to break genre tropes and create a unique soundscape which is something they are able to achieve to a degree. Hype is one bad bitch.

It's musically interesting, but the vocals are horrendous. Just sounds like they're trying too hard to be "different."

I can't even handle how decent this is. It's very, very decent.

Instrumentation is cool but vocals are the equivalent of trying to put a rub-ix cube up your bum-hole.

1.5 very poorIslamicPenguins | February 5th 13

Innovational promotion turns into an ultimate embarrassment. Although musically some tracks are very good and the experimentation works well, but nonetheless the horrendous vocals kill it every time, making it full of cringe worthy moments and nothing short of a chore to finish
