I don't know why I was linked to this when the percentage is low. I enjoyed it. It's not great but it's not "horrendous" either. I personally feel their self-titled EP was better and from the new songs they've recently released, I'm not happy about their direction. The screaming is actually being toned down and the song structure is just, well, generic.

So, I do like this band, and some of the songs on this album and I love the EP, but I don't like where they're going.

Ep is good, but the singing on this just isn't good, the screaming is ok/passable but very samey. I can't make it through 3 or 4 songs.

The singer's voice doesn't fit the band. He's not a bad singer (he's actually pretty good), but he sounds super out of place.

I love the clean vocalist, but the screamer annoys the piss out of me. And their lyrics are cringe-worthy. Pretty accurate review, I'd say they need time to harness their potential. Songs like "Look Alive" and "These Days I Have Nothing" are proof that they're better than half of the cookie cutter songs on this cd.

Yeah, like Deaf Havana on their full-lenght before they lose their screamer, i thought the EP was better.

Referring back to the Alexisonfire reference...Is this another band's (AOF) Crisis?

They don't distinguish themselves from the others? Are you serious?

Cannot believe the ratings for this album - i think this album is brilliant. they are brilliant live too.
and their new single, What If Feels Like is awesome.

They might not be re-inventing the wheel, BUT inho besides Alexisonfire they are the best at this genre.
