i totally agree. the cd is good but I feel like they repeat a lot of the same song structures over and over way too much throughout the different tracks.

im seeing them tonight and im so pumped

It's not "christcore silliness" that's a pretty arrogant remark. What WCAR preaches is not "Obey God or you will perish!!" they preach solely about love. No bells or whistles, just love, love for your fellow man, not because they're a believer in God, but because they are your brother in Christ. Please don't compare this to Chiodos, it's as far away from it as can be.


Also, it isn't garbage. Yes the production has a "sound" to it, but that is the trademark of Joey Sturgis...that I happen to love, after all this is a review of my opinion.

I'll say that I enjoyed this cd more than many like it. The score may be a bit high though, but hey its your opinion

The clean vocals on this are excruciating. This album doesn't even sound real with its super over production. I was really looking forward to this, very disappointed.

I've heard that from a bunch of people. Plus it's always mentioned in every single We Came as Romans thread

Chiodos does all of that except the Christcore silliness much, much better.


Not really.

Drew Beringer has given low 70s - mid 80s to Devil Wears Prada, Oh Sleeper, August Burns Red, Silverstein, From First to Last, Chiodos and countless other scenecore bands.

I'm not sure if WCAR would be considered Christcore? I know that a lot of very religious people drink alcohol and it's not seen as a bad thing, but for some reason, drinking and being a christian in this scene (either band or fan) is looked completely down on to the point where it's almost the stereotype that if you drink you're not christian? And I've seen pictures of everyone from WCAR drinking before.

I had a good laugh though when I found out not everyone in Oh Sleeper is actually christian. I did shots of Jack with their guitarist once

There is no way possible that you can convince me that this album is as good as you say it is. This sound has been done over and over again. Like others here have said, the review is completely unbalanced and your bias shows through more than anything.

holy lol @ this review

this is the most generic scene garbage. clean vocals are produced to hell and back.

coming from a guy with All Time Low and Hit The Lights in their username this really means a lot since those bands are the most creative, non-cheesy, non-homo, sounding bands i've ever heard. seriously, do you drive around with all time low and hit the lights booming out of your speakers? your friends dont think you are gay for that?

atleast have a more elitest username like BNandATDI if you want to talk shit on it

I think he was proving a point to that kid. The kid called WCAR generic, but his username is based on around bands that aren't exactly original either so it was kind of hypocritical of him to say shit about the review

Oh I know. And I agree with him about that. Just the hypocrisy bothered me. Just cuz he likes jammin out to some pop doesn't mean he's gay. Try playin wcar with a bunch of girls in the car, tell me how that goes.

Depends on the girl. My girlfriend likes mainly only pop and pop punk and bands I can't stand (nevershoutnever comes to mind, I seriously hate it) but she recently got into We Came As Romans. I can see a decent amount of girls hating it though
