I actually like this record a lot more than I thought I would. I also really like "Derailed." It may not be ground breaking, but there is a lot worse out there. Well-written review, I just don;t agree 100%.

This reminds me a great deal of the new Atreyu album review, but great nonetheless. It's always good to hear someone's opinion on an album, especially someone you trust to give you the lowdown.

i really enjoyed this a lot more than i would have thought. sksk have always been able to write some decent songs, but their last record was pretty dull for the most part. the new one however is actually a good record. i think the last few songs aren't that much weaker than the first 5, nor do i think that the ballads are too cheesy. the record also surprised me lyrically with some rather deep and honest sounding vocals.

I think the new album is awful and this is coming from someone who actually liked their last one. The first two tracks on the City Sleeps in Flames were amazing, it's too bad they couldn't make the whole album sound like that.

Lol at authors rating vs members rating.

They should have a rating for cover art so I could rate that poorly.

Every time I look at it I see that evil lady from Reboot.

I think the art looks like a poor combination of Anberlin's Never Take Friendship Personal and Panic at the Disco.

Yeah, I would say those are a little extreme.

I think peoples' thoughts on the new record will be opposite of what they thought of the last album. I hated the last one, but like this one, whereas there are others that will share your view.

Great review! I listened to it again after you recommended it the other day and I'm still not there. I agree with alot of what you said in the review though and I think that musically it's better and much more solid. I hate the drastic change in the vocals, only because I would have liked to see them use the screaming better than they did in both albums i.e. not in the cliche screamo band and not just to throw it in as an afterthought.

I hate the bullshit ballads. I hope to god they and others read you review and realize how utterly crappy they sound and how it can tear apart an otherwise decent album.

And finally I agree 100% with your comments about the cover art. I mean really haven't we all seen the god damn mask 900 times before. We should have RULES for overused bullshit like this. It makes me want to scream have some creativity, that's what art is about!
