While this album does stand out from the other two albums by You Me At Six, I
still wasn't blown away.
None of the tracks are necessarily bad, thoough I don't care much for "Loverboy". Just none of them are greatly impressive to me. That is, with the exception of "Bite My Tongue" featuring Oli Sykes from Bring Me The Horizon. I first listened to the song because I was suprised they'd bring Oli into one of their songs. That is also my favorite track, I feel Oli's screaming is a nice contrast to their pop-punk sound.
The only song I seriously dislike is "Little Death". The music is good, I'll admit, but the message they appear to be giving out is awful. "We are not your lovers, we are not your friends. Fuck what you believe in 'cause this is the end." Seriously? What kind of message is that, You Me At Six? People should always believe in what they believe in, without that we have nothing! Terrible message there, absolutely terrible.
I'm not saying, however, that the rest of the songs aren't good, I just wasn't overly impressed. It all sounded as it I've heard it before, I just couldn't place where I had heard it. Don't just take my word for it though, listen to the album yourself. You may have a different opinion than me.
I don't feel this album is worth buying, it feels like they could have worked harder on it. I give this album two stars, because some lyrics are better than others, and it does have
one song I do really like.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
