Whoa! Why all the hate? "Tracing Back Roots" is a great first single. One of the best they've released and they cut back on the cleans. All these 1's right now is unreasonable. Shows how closed-minded you guys can be. I'm sure it'll be 3.5+ worthy.

The same damn thing over and over, just like all their music. Very studio-made, just like all their music.
Power chord after power chord. Constant 4/4 and not heavy enough. Songwriting is terrible. 1.

The first single is a big impact on we will see the over all product, and this will most likely be a let down

The cover artwork for Tracing Back Roots somehow manages to be engaging in comparison to the actual record itself; then again, Paul A. Romano has a thing for unleashing attractive illustrations no matter how silly they may appear. Metalcore band We Came As Romans is basically adhering to the same chalkboard of yawn-worthy fads that every other similar group has the urge to write on due to reasons. Though the album does have its moments and David Stephens is an okay screamer, Tracing Back Roots' melodic nature sounds quite forceful and the message behind this release as a whole is, frankly, not that compelling.

Bump

2.5 averageiGuter | June 25th 14

An album with an interesting approach and catchy melodies, but it fails to have the strong core like their last two album and falls apart pretty quickly.

Bump

0.0 DarknessPrevails | May 6th 14

We Came As Romans continue to put out consistent work, though perhaps losing the melody that made them stand out.

4.5 superbCherryADTR | January 17th 14

Well guys. Maybe I'll be the only one to say that I love this album. Yes, maybe they could've got more creative with some parts and maybe this was WCARs downfall album. But I do love this album. It really hits hard with "Tracing Back Roots" with Dave's kickass fry scream, that never really gets old. But then dies down with Kyle singing My home is in your heart. And Kyle's voice has improved a lot since "Understanding what we've grown to be". Then heads into "Fade Away" which I thought had some amazing lyrics and we heard Dave sing. It was a little flat faced and could've been a little more intense or just creative. "I Survive" was spectacular. One of WCAR's only slow songs and it was pretty surprising. It was smooth and was well written although I think there could've been more to the bridge. "Ghosts" I would have to say is one of WCAR's best songs. The only song so far besides "Tracing back roots" that was intense. More of an edge of your seat song. "Present, Future, Past" was decent. Im gonna be honest. Lyrics were incredible, and music was well organized. But I wasn't really into the screaming on this song. It really got good once Kyle started singing. "Never let me go" is my favorite song on the album. One song I can surely relate to and had a great overall sound to it. "Hope" as we know was on "Understanding what we've grown to be" but they added it in. Which I have no problem with. If you want to call WCAR generic then you can say that on this song. However I like it but I do see some generic post-hardcore in it. "Tell me now" really stood out. There was a lot of tension in it and everything was perfect in this song. Couldn't of made it better. "A moment" I know was a little poppy. But I really enjoyed it. It was a song that you could just jump around to and have a good time listening to it. "I am free" was maybe the best song on the album. A hard hitting intro and a chorus that easily gets stuck in your head. And lastly "Through the darkest dark and the brightest bright" I wasn't really into this song, maybe the one that fell flat besides "Fade Away". However if you listened to the two bonus songs "One Face, "Recklessness" maybe you could agree that those were two of WCAR's best songs.

Better than Understanding What We've Grown To Be and To Plant A Seed combined, but not too much. At least it has it's moments.

This album should have high hopes for me, but for some reason I don't care about this band anymore. There debut was great but the sophomore attempt was terrible, simply because there was no growth at all, possibly even a step back. So I noticed that this new album was created at a much faster paced than a natural time period, which might include that they weren't happy with the outcome of their second album (like me) and wanted to prove to their-selves and other people (probably not their fans, because they probably relished the album up) that they can achieve what they were hoping to achieve with the second album.

Bump

2.0 poorTonyHarrop | July 29th 13

Quite a let down from their previous albums, trading in good instrumentals for cheesy hooks.

Bump

2.5 averageInFiction | July 25th 13

They've made some improvements in their abilities. Kyle's vocals, while still not great, are a huge improvement than previous attempts and the addition of Dave's clean singing is a nice touch as well, as his voice is much easier to listen to. Having said that, the songwriting and lyrics seems to have regressed, resulting in more generic, 'anthemic' songs.

Bump
