4.0 excellentDalton DuBois | December 1st 17

Calling reviewing dibs, gonna be one of the best albums of the yearrEdit: Not a troll dude, I love this band.rEdit 2: Album's out in Japan, wow. This actually shocked me. Danny's become an entirely rdifferent man since the loss of his child, and that sobering reality has translated frightfully rwell into his music. Album is by far the best they've ever done by a green mile.

1.5 very poorzaruyache | December 14th 17

Entirely performative, emotionally vapid melodicore designed for people with little innate ability to make meaningful emotional connections on any, real, level.

Very average release... between a 2.5 and 2 for me. Although, "Vultures" is a pretty decent song.

3.5 greatc0nf1n3d | April 12th 18

I have NO idea what happened during the mixing and mastering of this record, but it sounds HORRENDOUS. I've purchased the physical CD (it was $2, well worth it), and listened to various streams online - so...it's not 'just my copy'. That's more of a personal note - as for the album itself, Asking Alexandria have certainly taken a giant shift since back in 2009 with "Stand Up and Scream". Gone is the 'predictable metalcore' style; now we have...a predictable alternative style? It's not necessarily a bad thing, as nearly every song on this record is catchy and completely memorable. Right away it opens with "Alone in a Room", showcasing the evolution of the band's sound and vocalist Danny Worsnop's impressive range. Following, it jumps straight into (ahem) the fire with the song "Into the Fire". It's a solid rock song with a beautifully punishing chorus. The rest of the album continues to deliver solid songs - with simple and safe songwriting that is best described as a prologue for the new direction this band is taking. "Where Did it Go?" might be the catchiest song on their self-titled record, whilst "Under Denver" actually BENEFITS from the cruddy mixing. Honestly, there's not a real poor song on this one. Even "Empire", featuring a pointless rapping guest vocal still manages to be a good song. No, where this record suffers is again, its mixing. It takes what could easily be a 4 - 4.5, and drags it down. I'd love to hear a version of this one remixed with a different producer in mind.

2.5 averageZachery Cotto | January 8th 18

The existence of this band honestly confuses me. This could've been a lot worse, though. Into the Fire, Hopelessly Hopeful, and Rise Up are alright but the mixing in each of these tracks is terrible. Guitars are inaudible and Danny's voice is too loud in the mix. The only song that doesn't have this problem is Empire and that song's just awful.

Bump

3.0 goodmeenwolf131 | January 5th 18

catchy and harmonised heaviness come with decent structural banger dynamic / a lot of gimmick mixtures that're not unique enough / listenable, friendly, and headbanger

Bump

4.5 superbwalluuup | December 24th 17

I don't know why the critics are so hard on asking alexandria, but i really think that's there best album.

Bump

2.0 poormattmkay | December 18th 17

Was listening to this in the car and thought it was pretty decent, but excused the poor audio quality (my car speakers aren't even that bad).. later listened on headphones but that made absolutely no difference. The mixing on this album is so terrible, and some of the worst I've heard. Its a shame, because I actually like some of the songs, but I can't unhear how flat and compressed every song on this album is. There's synth melodies, guitar lines, and even Danny worsnop's voice that often times get buried in what sounds like a jumbled mess.

Bump

2.0 poorProsicIndulgences | December 17th 17

Overall pretty boring but has some fun songs on it. Just feels like a weak return after for Danny since From Death to Destiny (which is still my favorite album by these guys)

Bump

2.0 poorKars Landman | December 14th 17

I feel like this record is trying to achieve what BMTH did with TTS. AA does have a great
vocalist, but they miss the 'pop-genius' behind the keys that BMTH has. Record isn't offensively
bad, it's just really dull.
