Athletics Who You Are Is Not Enough
Baron Noir L'epoque Exige De Bons Gestionnaires
Blueneck The Fallen Host
Echoes (UK) The Pursuit
A cathartic and atmospheric powerhouse of an album. The wall of sound created by the instruments - coupled with the heartwrenching wails of the frontman - make for an otherworldly listen.

Wolves and Machines Since Before Our Time
A flawless combination of all the indie rock bands I can name. The length of the songs allows them to flesh out their already unique and original sound. The whole thing flows seamlessly, and listening to the whole thing through really just feels like you're listening to one behemoth of a song. The result is simply spectacular.

I kinda knew what I was gonna rate this before I heard it. Now that I have, and even though a couple tracks are a little weak, I can honestly say this album just about lived up to my high expectations. Highly recommended. I love what this band is doing.

Thoroughly impressed. I thought I was gonna be listening to a generic metalcore album but everything is more than a step up from their peers. I will admit they need to figure out a different introduction to their songs because half of them have the same exact one.

Empty Handed A Memory That No One Clings Onto
The ratio of EPs to LPs in the emotional hardcore genre has got to be something like 4:1. So naturally I get a little bit excited when a LP from a band I know is coming out. In my opinion, Empty Handed absolutely nailed this. The vocals and instruments have all improved greatly.

In a genre where some bands have a flair to create something beyond music (Defeater, Departures, Apart) Rescuer creates one of the emptiest hardcore albums I've heard in a while. It's worthy of a 'good', but nothing more.

I have no idea what to think of this album. I mean, the post-rock parts are fantastic, but at other times there is just so much chaos and so much going on between the instruments and the indecipherable distant vocals that, overall, it's unlike any other album I can think of.

Why oh why does every good, energetic band have to put out a record that is so somber and depressing? Young States was terrific, and while this is good, it doesn't sound like the Citizen I loved.
