I like that you put "bands that sound exactly like UO". Underoath does sound a lot like bands that sound exactly like Underoath. (Not trying to be a dick or anything, it just made me laugh)

dude..... alright, i love underoath too, and this album is awesome, but c'mon, you def went crazy on the exagerations. its quite a claim (quite an ignorant and naive one) to say something along the lines of this being among the greatest albums ever. and ya this albums like 3 years old, you shoulda covered Lost in the Sound of Separation.
yes, their passion and emotion and atmosphere and vocals are amazing and practically unrivaled, but you could hardly call underoath metalcore. so surely they cant "own the metalcore genre". aside from some heavy vocals and some drumming, their guitar work has virtually no metal technique to it at all. they are more screamo/post hardcore.
sorry, not tryin to be a dick lol, keep writing!

I know, that wasn't a dick saying at all.

It's so true though, there are TONS of bands that sound exactly like UO.

It's no means one of the best albums of all time.

It's one of the best christian metalcore albums of all time.

This album got quite old for me relatively quickly. Like all Underoath albums. Great band... but the replayability isn't there for me unfortunately. It's not often that I return to this album. I also prefer Lost in the Sound of Separation to this record.

This is one of the few albums that literaly changed the way I view music. It's heavy, but it's not metal. I don't know. All I know is that songs like Casting Such A Thin Shadow and Moving For The Sake Of Motion blow me away every fucking time. So yeah, one of my all time favourites.

Funny you complained about the length, cos thats my main gripe about Lost In The Sound...

I was going to submit this review with no complaints, but it got disapproved.

So I had to come up with one, and it was the length.

45 minutes is not short at all...I don't think this album is short, it's pretty long IMO

FYI read the words in parentheses
