Also EDM = electronic dance music like Trance, House, Ambient, etc.

okay, you can't listen to trance and house and talk shit about this kind of stuff. and this is coming from someone that listens to a lot of electronic music.

Good review! I really liked this on first listen. Converge is definitely a band you have to spend time with, and this release is no different.

People could say that about any genre.

The music you listen to is the polar opposite of hardcore music...ANYONE would be taken aback if they are avid techno/electro/whatever listeners and they throw on thrash/hardcore.

Its definitely an acquired taste, but its hard to accurately critique if you're unfamiliar with the genre.
I'm all for free speech, but man, you had to know you were throwing yourself into the fire with this one..

One of your better reviews for sure.

RyanFTW 10/15/09 09:49 AM

Album is fucking wild, I love it.

I can't figure out why Drew gets his rocks off giving high scores to these garbage bands that sound exactly the same like all the other shit out there.

Converge sounds like a bunch of idiots banging on trash cans in a basement yelling their heads off. Any group of morons could replicate this kind of music. It has ZERO value.

coming from the guy who said this...

seriously dude, get off this site and go to May Day where you can jam out to Nickelback and have them tell you how to be a rockstar, bro.

Great review Drew. This band deserves the praise.

Obviously, your ears are not adjusted to any advanced form of music. This shit is like quantum physics when compared to hip-hop and alt. rock. So you really can't talk shit about something you don't understand, unless you want to look like a jackass.

So, you know that guy who hears what you're listening to and says "TECHNO SUCKS!"? Yeah, that guy who doesn't understand that Mylo is actually "house" music, not techno at all? The guy who's head you want to bash in because he's so damn ignorant to the genre(s), yet still feels the need to voice his opinion?

In regards to this genre, you are that guy. Please shut your pie hole. Thank you.

1) You could not replicate the drumming on this record.

2) Though the guitar work on this record is definitely not the most skilled I've ever heard, it does cover a very wide range of difficulty. You could not replicate it.

3) You could not replicate the vocals on this record.

4) Shut the fuck up.

5) Shut the fuck up.

6) Shut the fuck up.

7) Shut the fuck up.

8) Shut the fuck up.

9) Shut the fuck up.

10) SHUT THE FUCK UP.
