even though it is an OK album, 84% is far, far too high in my opinion ("it's barely noticeable when one track ends and another begins" - not normally a good thing)

well written review though nonetheless!

I'd add Funeral for a Friend in the RIYL section since "Top of the World" could be easily found in any FFAF album.,,
btw it's TBO at their heaviest..their best album to date

Sean Smith makes this band, every interview i read, he cracks me up.

Solid album would give it around 78% in my opinion though.

I think that's based on opinion. Personally, for me when I don't notice when an albums been played through, when it's been so enjoyable that I haven't stopped and went - What? - as in the dreaded filler tracks, it's a good thing. That's what I meant by it (:

I think my score was based partly on my shock and delight at actually liking this album, because normally I utterly detest anything screamo. I was captivated and mesmerized by the band, because I'd never thought to give them a chance before. Now I know.

Yeah, my scoring was pretty outlandish. I've edited it slighly, because I didn't realise how highly I'd given some aspects of the album. None the less, I stand by the fact that I believe it's a sold 80 + album.

Good to hear opinions though!

Good review!


I was initially disapointed with the disc, ive been a blackout fan for quite sometime now. I loved the ep and we are the dynamite. I thouhgt it may have been a little heavier but ah well..

The Fire is fucking awesome!
