I enjoy this album a lot. I don't see this as a radio friendly collection of music. It has a soul and substance. The instrumentation is beautiful and this mix on the whole album fucking rocks. Definitely the best music they've put out to date in my opinion.

Yikes. I love issues what in the world were you guys thinking to incorporate happy go lucky post 'Thriller' new jack swing into your sound? This was a train wreck.

Seems like some might say that the album didn't turn out to be as bad as Drink About It and Flexin suggested, but I'm the opposite. I loved the singles, and I thought this might make a bigger statement then it ends up making. It's a solid album and mostly has an R&B, Pop with heavy guitars crossover thing going on, with screams only showing up in a few spots. Guitars sound punchy and defined in the best way possible for this style. I don't feel the desire to do repeated full listens like I hoped I would but about half to 2/3 of the album is great.

It doesn't really sound like anything I haven't heard before in many other albums of this genre. The instrumentation can be nice at times, but the vocal delivery and general presentation does nothing to distinguish them from any other metalcore band of the past decade+ to the point where it drags down everything this album has going for it.
|3.5 great||Paul Quinones | October 16th 19|
their best mix of metalcore and r&b to date. i always knew they'd be able to make up for the loss of harsh vocals with tyler's voice. he doesn't overcompensate with his vocal composition like slaves, it's well balanced and feels like a metalcore-styled bruno mars act more than a metalcore band with some flashy singing. very well done and i love how this band has come back after a disappointing sophomore album.
|4.5 superb||ItzGZUSbetch | October 11th 19|
If you call this ?regression?, you?re crazy. This is one of the most progressive pieces of work I?ve ever heard. You don?t often hear a musician?s album that is also a pop masterpiece. The Djazz fusion they?ve created is unrivaled

I like Issues and loved Headspace but this just feels so dull and uninspired.
|4.0 excellent||ERouthier | October 7th 19|
Unique, try to find another band that sounds like this one in the metalcore scene. I
could see their next album refining this formula, which I would be interested to hear.

Tapping Out and Without You are genuinely good songs. Everything else is pretty miss.

Beautiful Oblivion is a very *fine* album that furthers Issues evolution into a pop/90's
rock'n'b(?) band. However, the metamorphosis still feels incomplete. There is little cohesion
between the remaining vestiges of heavy, downtuned riffage, and their commitment to a more
straightforward radio-friendly sound. As a result, everything feels a too restrained, caught
between the two eras of Issues without an avenue to lean into its potential. I feel like in
retrospect, this and predecessor, Headspace, will be seen as solid, yet transitory efforts from a
band who went on do something really great.

Issues finally decided what they wanted to be and it works for them.

I mean, it's not terrible. The final 4-ish tracks suck tit, yes, but honestly there's some fun shit here. Not the worst.
