I have to agree, not a well written review. Overall, your thesis lacked sufficient support. Like, not once did you refer to a song to illustrate a point you were trying to make. I also wasn't clear why you kept alluding to mosh pits in your review. Honestly, it sounds like you wrote a show review and not one for a studio album. I just think you have a little difficulty articulating your real thoughts about this. Hopefully my constructive criticism helps.

Also, if people are going to be so lazy with RIYLs such as the one in this review, could they just not bother with them?

This. That RIYL is ridiculous, you might not as well not put one. Also, where is the link? This review was just confusing.

EDIT:moreheart! didn't realize that was you haha.

Yeah, there is no excuse for how poor I wrote this. Every other review I wrote was fine, but this one just kills me. :/

Pretty good review man, however it is really repetitive and sounds very similar to August Burns Red/For Today etc. but they still have their own sound that is distinguishable and it's an enjoyable album worth a listen. The band like you said is VERY talented and their polyrhythms are unlike anything I've ever heard in another band and they have a lot of potential if they can change their song structure a bit to avoid the chug, breakdown, sweep, tap seen in most of their songs.

their polyrhythms aren't that impressive since so many other bands have began utilizing them because of the "djent" movement, but they really do remind of me of ABR, still like em though

I see...I'm not too big on most metalcore/newer metal bands like Messhuggah so I guess I've never heard them used before in the way these guys use them. I just could never get into that kind of music due to the monotony or "scare factor" some of them are going for, but there are exceptions, like Parkway Drive.

Alright, I'll check it out man, and I didn't know they've been around that long, I just know they're on the same scene with bands like Lamb of God.
