From the first time I heard, "Die Trying", I knew I had to hear more from Art Of Dying. Their sophmore album, Vices And Virtues will not disappoint. All
eleven tracks have soulful lyrics, and great beats to back it up.
Some songs are comforting, such as, "I Will Be There". It simply says, "I will be there to love you when nothing works and nobody cares." While others are inspirational, "Get Through This" says, "If I can get through this, I can get through anything."
This album has everything you could possibly want in an album. Great lyrics, great instrumentals, even a guest singer. On the eighth track, "Raining", the Three Days Grace singer, Adam Gontier is featured. He sings a part of the song which his cousin, Cale Gontier plays bass in the background for. "I'm scared to be me, because I look like you. I don't wanna be somebody I never knew. I'm scared to go out, I'm so far in. I
hear its nice, but I've never been." To me, that sounds as though they were
saying they do not want to be like the parental unit they have. Whether its a
mother or father, or someone entirely different, they don't want to turn into
someone that's clearly made a bad impression on their lfie.
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.
