Solid transition to post-hardcore/alt-rock from metalcore... Beau's really been allowed to showcase his abilities here. It's
nothing special, but it's ok.

It's alright. They took their foot off the gas pedal a bit, but I have a history with the band so I'll give it a pass. Cutthroat is great. The intro to that song made me laugh out loud. Wouldn't expect that kind of thing from Blessthefall. It sorta sounds like something from an Emmure record.

If they would drop the forced electeonics and get a better clean singer this could be a 3.5 but it's still alright as it is

Some solid guitar work, and I've always liked the screamer, but the songs are all predictable, the lyrics are below average, and Beau just isn't that impressive of a singer.

Well...its good for what it is. And for a blessthefall record, its a shame. *Hollow Bodies* is a modern metalcore classic, with gnarly riffs and top notch aggression from start to finish. *Hard Feelings* is a significant departure. Sure, it sounds glossy and polished, but every song is the same shell of of an alt-rock-leaning Bring Me the Horizon rip-off. Each song enters with a catchy, punchy riff (some of which are *Hollow Bodies*-era strong), but then drops out into this pseudo-artsy atmospheric verse where Beau whines over a simple drum patterns and shimmery synth before a wall of power chords enter with a typical blessthefall chorus. Rinse and repeat, this happens on nine of the ten tracks (the exception being "Cutthroat"). There's no gnarly verse riffs, there's no shredding, and there's minimal fun to be had, the latter of which being the hallmark of what made blessthefall who they are. At the end of the day, *Hard Feelings* sounds like a band who realized their popularity stagnated (and it did), so they're attempting to take the BMTH *That's the Spirit* alt-rock leap, with 9 songs sounding like "Drown" carbon copies. Whether label-pushed (they're now on Rise) or their own idea, they've executed the sound adequately at best. *Hard Feelings* is a fun listen at times, and surely has its catchy moments, but its a disappointing blessthefall release. Ultimately, time will tell if this accomplishes the lightning-in-a-bottle popularity explosion they're (or their label) hoping for.
|2.5 average||Danred97 | March 24th 18|
Better than their previous release, but aside from one track (I'm Over Being Overrated), the album was standard and dull. Blessthefall are clearly okay with releasing uninteresting and bland phc/metalcore without trying to innovate or try anything new. The end of the album was also trying way to hard to be cute, it didn't work.

Definitely more fun than their last album, a pretty decent style switch that works for them a lot better.

Blessthefall has been dropping production as shit on the toilet since "Awakening." It is clear that the band is not revolutionary and not one of the best of its kind, but during their career they managed to make good songs that blended heavier elements with some melodic vocals. The big problem is that the band got lost and stagnated in the past without being able to reach other horizons. "Hard Feelings" is very bad, really. The disc does not have a good song, and is absurdly produced with a stupid quantity of synthesizers that don't worked really well. A record to forget from a band that seeks oblivion without realizing it.
