The intro, "2.0" isn't exactly the best. Basically all they say though the
entire son ig, "We're Not Dead". That's just a bit obvious, is it not? We can
tell you're not dead, because if you were you wouldn't be screaming about it.
Pure and simple, you wouldn't be.
The music is good on the entire album, it has great guitar riffs and all the proper trimmings for what some people would call "Screamo" music.
Maybe its just me, as I do adore Craig Mabbitt, but I don't think Beau Bokan does nearly as well as Craig did. There's nothing wrong with him at all, I just don't care for him as much. That being said, at times, he sounds a lot like Craig. It took me a few times listening to the album before I could stop asking, "Who's that singing? Craig or Beau?" Now I realize they sound nothing a like most of the time. Only true similarity is their screams at moments, though its generally deeper than Craig's is.
I particularly liked the second track, "What's Left Of Me", just because I love the way he sings the line, "What's left of me is yours to keep." It sounds so pure and sweet, like he's genuinely enjoying the words he's singing. For unknown reasons, it spoke to me. Possibly because of how clearly it was sung.
One thing I disliked about this album is while I enjoy the sound of his scream, you can not understand it most of the time. I had to look up the lyrics just to figure out what he was saying.
I defentily perfer His Last Walk over Witness, its more understandable, and I just perfer Craig's voice over Beau's. This being said, I
do say this is a good album and it is worth listening
I give this album four stars, because
all of it is good, just the screaming is a bit hard to comprehend.
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.
