I understand why you think the album is over saturated with breakdowns, however many people fail to understand that breakdowns are the cue for mosh pits basically, and it's really awesome to see this band live, and considering that their clean vocalist is very talented, this band is actually fairly unique. But I do understand, the album as a whole is okay, it gets monotonous after a while.

You can have a breakdown without constant chugs. See: Underoath.

I don't think I've ever heard UO chug and some of their breakdowns are downright vicious.
I'm not a fan of underoath, but I did have a chance of seeing them as the opener to A Day To Remember, and they played after The Word Alive and Close Your Eyes, and believe me, a good amount of the crowd lost interest during Underoath, but during the other bands everyone was going nuts. Isn't it true they not even have any founding members anymore?

I see what you mean though, most breakdowns are chugging, but Underoath isn't the greatest example to use as a band who still has great breakdowns without chugging, at least from my perspective.

Just because the breakdowns aren't blatantly obvious so stupid scene kids can't recognize them doesn't mean they aren't there.

Underoath is by far the most talented of all those bands, and I went to the same tour and they were also by far the most enjoyable to watch from a music lovers stand-point. Yeah if you like to party the otherbands are fun, but I'm more of respecterkf talent.
I hate scene kids as much as the next guy, and I think a better example of a band without obvious breakdowns would be Set Your Goals, from my point of view at least.

And as far as Woe, Is Me goes, they should incorporate more synth into their breakdowns and have intricate melodies playing along with the chugging, similar to The Word Alive.

And I'm gonna catch these guys at a concert in a few weeks with a bunch of other bands, and I'm sure they'll put on a great show, supposedly their singer is great live.

Which show did you go to? I went to the one here in Clifton Park/Albany, New York and people seemed to be going just as wild for Underoath as they were for The Word Alive and A Day To Remember. Close Your Eyes was actually the band that people seemed disinterested in.
I saw them in Allentown PA, people were pretty quiet for Close Your Eyes until they played "Song For the Broken" and like fifteen people and myself rushed on stage for the chant part. People were crazy for The Word Alive as well, Underoath was a buzzkill that show, then ADTR just did what they always do and didn't disappoint.
