All Wilhelm, no Scream. Its listenable but very safe and boring.

Absolutely incredible. If you've been listening to A Wilhelm Scream for the past 2 decades, you know that each album brings something new, and for some songs it might take a couple of listens before you feel what they are really doing. I knew it was going to be good, but I did not expect such a fresh sound from them after the 9 year gap. I need to stop "expecting" anything from them. Love the experimenting they are doing with vocal styles, IN LOVE with the group harmonies and hooks, and everything you've ever loved from them is still there. All of the shredding, all of the technicality is still there. If people are saying that there's less of that on this album, it is only because it's now totally in service of the song as a full composition and flows incredibly well, plus the mixing does bring it down a bit when the orchestration is full. Every listen-through will expose something new and clever going on (which has always been the case with this band). I have to admit I am also surprised at the comments of album flow, I think where they choose to continue a certain energy and where to contrast it is well chosen. Going to listen through this thing 100 times before the end of April.

Less shreddy and screamy, more mature and heartfelt. I've had it on repeat nonstop.

Mild disappointment. More emphasis on fun than shred. Some great tracks sprinkled in amongst a lot of duds. I dont think the track placement helps the album either.

This is shaping up to be something special. Just wish we could see the album art.

I didnt love it at first listen, expected a lot more heavy tracks, but I keep on listening
and now I much admit I enjoy it as much as all their previous albums, but I understand why
fans expected something more fast and heavy.

I've always been a huge AWS fan but I would never consider calling one of their albums "beautiful" until now. There is truly no other way to describe it. Not a bad song on here and absolutely worth the wait.

What a weird album. There are some great moments on here and you can tell the boys are having a lot of fun. But so many parts of songs are ideas that didn't get fully fleshed out. Some transitions are melodically awkward. Some parts are cheesy. They definitely still bring the energy though. Album ending is definitely not a strong point either. Agreed that Be One to No One is the top track here, it really has a bit of everything, with great lyrics to boot. Some of the vocal choices leave me scratching my head though.

I never expected the perennially cynical Scream to write something uplifting, but here we
are! The only weak tune is "I'm Gonna Work It Out". Meanwhile, "Be One to No One" is the
song to beat this year.

4.5 superbTheNoodle | April 15th 22

It makes a lot of sense why they chose Be One To No One as the lead single. That's the best entry point based on what AWS has done before. But be prepared for this album to surprise you consistently, and try out totally new things!rThis sounds like an album made by a group of guys who love each other, and love making music together. And hearing that in every single song is really wonderful!rBig Nasty is an immediate stand out. It's 2:15 and manages to transition through like 8 distinct sounds to create a WILD listening experience

a step down from an otherwise brilliant career, but a fun listen nonetheless. if this is the end, it's been a fun run
