Je suis l'Alpha et l'Oméga
I've been a fan of FFAF since I saw the video for Juneau years ago and I have to say I'm unsure if this release will stick to me like past releases. I've listened to about four songs and they certainly aren't bad - they just aren't FFAF. It sounds like Matt Davies singing for an alternative rock band.
I must point out something to all of the bands who are ditching their genre labels for a more simpler "rock" (ex: Roses Are Red, Classic Case, etc.) . ROCK IS BORING! The words "post hardcore' and "emo" are not bad words! It seems like more and bands are doing this thus releasing albums that are not bad but are not as creative and endearing as the albums that garnered them attention in the first place.
