While I’m reviewing this album a couple years after its release, I felt this album is better than Reckless And Relentless, So late or not I decided to review it.
Normally, I don’t like instrumentals, or songs that are nearly instrumental, but “Alerion” is a good intro. I love the “fuck this” near the end when Danny starts screaming.
I’m also not a huge fan of “screamo” to the extent Asking Alexandria does, I think that’s a big reason I only really enjoy two if the songs on this album. “Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)” and “Not The American Average”. I don’t even know why I like those songs, there’s really no reason.
Especially not when it comes to my favorite, “Not The American Average.” Seeing as the song is about a hooker. I guess its just because its catchy, honestly. While I’m not sure I really would say I like any of the other songs a lot, I do enjoy some of the titles greatly. Like, “I Used To Have A Best Friend, But Then He Gave Me An STD”, or “I Was Once, Possibly, Maybe, Perhaps a Cowboy King.” They had fun when it came to naming their songs I think.
I’d have to give this album four stars, because I do like the music, lyrics, and the screaming, just not necessarily as often as they use it.
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.
