"Messengers was a good release but was not a stand out record. Their generic fast heavy metalcore sound just fit a template of what several other bands have followed over the last several years. They did it well, but hardly stood out from the pack. Constellations, their third full length album, the band started to evolve a bit "

What are you saying. How is Constellations>Messengers???? Am i alone on this one?
No I agree with you. Constellations was good but the low overal audio level kept me from listening to it more and the songs weren't as memorable. In fact, all I can remember is the excellent line "Don't excuse yourself from life today!" on the second track.

Wait, what about the audio level? Is it one of those CDs that ends up sounding really quiet compared to other songs on your media player?

Interesting review. Personally, I though Carpe Diem was the worst track - not bad, but the worst - on the
album. And hurrah for audible bass.

Yeah that's exactly what I'm talking about. Norma Jean's newest had a similar problem. Petty I know, but still irritating.

Really? That one didn't give me trouble, I don't think... but The Devil Wears Prada's With Roots Above and Branches Below, deluxe, did. I assumed it was a problem with my software. Ughhh. That's really annoying. I feel ya.

As dumb as this sounds is it possible that either when CDs are manufactured they're 'not all created equally' or that something happens when you import it into iTunes? I wrote it off a while ago but hearing we had opposite experiences with albums (My tdwp has an excellent audio level) makes me wonder. It's a shame because it was significant enough to delete meridonal off my iPod :/
