awesome review..although i have to say i disagree on one point. i think "the tide" was much more creative and expirimental than this album. thats not to say this one isnt though. i liked the more atmospheric and meandering guitar riffs on the tide, kinda made it more unique. i still love this album and agree fully with your interpretation of the topic on this album though.

I really enjoyed this album. Some of the songs were quite catchy, especially "The Family Disease". It's an improvement over "The Tide", which was just mediocre imo.

In all honesty, this album disapointed me

The Tide was perfect.
It was atmospheric, heavy, and beautiful at the same time

Alot of the songs on this CD sound the same


Don't get me wrong, I love it
But I expected something like The Tide...but different.

a lot more than the last.

Overall, I thought it was a pretty good album, although I don't see it having a very long lasting effect on me.

What sticks the most on Birth Eater is the atmosphere created throughout the album. Though it gets old to give singers all the credit, the mood of this album is solely created by Taulbee. Singing cleanly with a hint of defeat and pessimism in his delivery, and evoking the chaos of not knowing the next step in life with his screaming, Taulbee truly pushes himself to the edge, and for the thrill of the fall, base jumps off of it. The atmospheric genius of the album quickly reaches its pinnacle in "The Family Disease," again, the album's second track. It's almost as if all of the children who were never given the chance to plead for their lives are rubbing the decision to abort in their parents' faces, while Taulbee screams his face off (or at least attempts to), speaking for all of them as loud as he can. This is seen again in "Devil Walk, God Walk (Heaven Walk, Hell Walk)," though it is not as effective.

One of my favorite parts of a review, ever. No lie. I love you/this review, great job.
