'Of Love and Lunacy' was a solid metalcore album, more oriented towards a melodically infused base, touched up by the trademark of their sound; namely, keyboards. In spite of redundant KsE choruses and the infamous, but occasional breakdown, Still Remains had a signature sound. With a gradual urge to find themselves on the radio, SR now take the vaguest, incosistent parts from Of Love and Lunacy, and blend it in a mayhem of mediocre keyboarding and toddler melodies. Derivative songs and genericore riffs aren't all that bothers anymore, as alas, SR return with a more poppy, incohesive and dishonest album. Something to avoid at all costs.

Overshadowed and rather overlooked due to various reasons, The Serpent features a metalcore band trying their damnedest to avoid the stereotypes typically found within the subgenre, whilst putting emphasis on keyboards and striking a fine balance between unrefined melody and slightly polished aggression. Still Remains aren't really perfect on this album, for the guitar work occasionally lacks the strength to perform an uppercut, though T.J. Miller's experience with tackling both clean and harsh vocals combined with the well-rounded songwriting choices might just be enough to keep listeners from heading yonder.

I found this band when i was Listening to killswitch Engage on Youtube and a song named "The Worst is Yet To Come" was featured. So, i gave it a try and instantly fell in love with the band. And so i decided to listen to more of there songs, the first of which was "Dancing with the Enemy"... And wow, how can you go from Headbanger Metalcore, to a Boy-Band?? This entire album is a disgrace to the Metal genre. Im glad that they have reunited and went back to there roots.

This album showed some growing pains as Still Remains tried to break free of their melo-death-inspired metalcore past, but in songs like "Anemia in Your Sheets", they showcased how good they could really be. Catchy and heavy can coexist quite peaceably.

This album is an awesome breakaway from the metalcore stereotype that was Of Love and Lunacy. It was great, sometimes bad, but it was kind of generic. With the Serpent, Still Remains, shows they can make some great music, even though it's not all metalcore. The keyboards are in full effect, which sets the tone. The guitars are nice, playing some sweet riffs and making some melody with the keyboards. The vocals are nice, the scream sounds a little more raw and emotional. And the cleans are well exectued. T.J. and Mike both do an awesome job with the vocals. Some of the best songs I think are: Stay Captive, Anemia In Your Sheets, Dancing With The Enemy, An Undesired Reunion, and Avalanche. Too bad they broke up, I was looking forward to what the would do next.

this is a much better album than I thought it would be, they did change their style but still have that sound that we love. The band over all has matured, as could be expected. More singing, Clearer more difficult guitar licks and more catchy songs.
I'll give it a 4.

even though Still Remains is one of my favorite bands, this album seemed to fall short of what i expected from what they said about how it was gonna be (heavier, faster, etc.). The last album was their heaviest shit ever and i can listen to it always and bang my head to it. this i can say the same for a couple tracks like "wax walls", "Anemia", and "dropped from the cherry tree". some songs i say are catchy and melodic but most of them sound like depeche mode trying to be metal. i decided to give this album a chance because of curiosity of what the new members bring to the music (most notably the new drummer). of course the band stated that this is their most honest record, so i'll give this album a 3. 'nuff said.

This album is kinda dissapointing, there last album was pact with intensity, it had great vocals, good keyboards, and some strong lyrics that fit the music. This album falls a bit short, they try to go the more softer road, but its lacking the keyboards atmosphere from the previous. Insteads its a bit genric, and a bit trying to get some radio play. The positives about this record is it does still have some deep vocals, the guitar work is still decent, and its a bit more catchy. Its good, just not as good as there last one.

1.5 very poorjrowa001 | August 7th 07

they basically took the same road that It Dies Today did with their last album. SR had a unique sound, i dont know if it was the keyboards or their strong lyrics, but now all of that went too shit. the vocals went from zao-esque (but better) to a dry, bland crapfest. riffs have dumbed down and the new keyboardist sucks. total letdown

1.5 very poorSylentEcho | August 7th 07

Such a pathetic attempt at music. Their previous album was better only because it came out at the right time when people were still giving metalcore a chance because people thought the genre would improve without the pathetic breakdowns and poor song structuring.rAny way, we all know that never happened and this genre truly has no hope. Still Remains here have released an album wherein almost all songs follow the exact same formula and structure. They make an attempt at writing overly emotional lyrics, so clearly this album is directed towards kids between the ages 15-18 and that's just sad, because people that age change their mind really fast. They could back this band for one year and then be off. Oh wait, Still Remains disbanded the following year after this album. I wonder why. :-)
