This review really provided no information whatsoever. Why did you give a low rating to musicianship and lyrics? It's mostly about TREOS.

i really like this band and i really like this album. i think your review could've focused more on the album's content, but i'm glad to see they're getting favorable reviews.

emoneil, you beat me to it...i was planning on reviewing this E.P. myself. I especially like the first track on this CD. I wish Stephen would sing more and scream less...hopefully eventually they will go into a more melodic direction, but right now they are def into this hardcore phase. I do like how Stephen has such a gutsy scream though. He def has balls for being such a tiny man. I believe he has alot more potential as a singer that he has yet tapped into.

I agree whole heartedly! The first track is my favorite by far and I'm anxious to see what they can do in the future!

To me, the review seemed more like a history of the band's sound as opposed to an actual review of the record.

I see no connection between Renae and groups like TREOS and The Dear Hunter....and I've been following Renae since their first live set.

I really never listened to TREOS very much, and we have jammed to the dear hunter, but I appreciate the comparisons.

If you really want to know, we cut our teeth on bands like at the drive-in, mewithoutyou, glassjaw, deftones, fugazi, and as cities burn, and we've been around a lot of hardcore bands lately. I would not hesitate to mention that we are all fans of sparta and the mars volta as well.

I can see the comparisons because Stephen actually sings really well, but the intro to the album is not the album. It is merely a transitional from the last record we put out. I think that is the only significant spot we resemble the forementioned bands. I appreciate a review regardless.

We realize we are not the most unique band around today. It has all been done under the sun. However, I do want to say that we are real and we try to write what we feel. We put a lot into this EP and we are currently creating a new record with our new lineup. I have no idea on a release date or even a recording date. We just always create music in the downtime.

thanks for reviewing our EP.

p.s. i would also suggest checking out a new england band that is now defunct called FIRST AID KIT. Not to be confused with the pop/electro outfit, this band was a very influential band for me and my brother for both of the last albums.
