This album was a complete disappointment... The review is completely biased IMO
The new drummer just doesn't do it for me on this record. The drums completely kill this record from being a great one. And also, the drum transitions are almost if not completely bland and it hinders the band from exploding full circle in their writing.

6.5/10
I completely disagree. I think the drumming is way more invigorating on this album than the past 3 releases. I did a 25 minute interview with Legs a couple of weeks ago, that might change the way you hear the album.

Woah! Slow down there! All I meant was that Ex Lives takes a little bit of each style from each previous record they've put out. That's what I meant by "full circle" in the song writing. They threw in a new drummer on this record that just simply doesn't do it for me. That is all. Ex Lives isn't a bad record, it just isn't amazing.
Touche. Sorry, I think I was annoyed by something completely unrelated at the time and took it out on your post. I understand what you mean now, and it makes a lot of sense. Forgive me?

The guitar tone also seems lacking but I can't quite put into words why. It just sounds flat to me, lacking that punch/

If you listened to the stream, it's a low bitrate and can cause the tracks to sound a bit flat. The guitars really stand out on a high quality version of the album.

Best album to come out this year so far for me. It's going to take a lot to top it.

Best album of 2012 so far for me. I would give it 9/10 though.

The Part from 2:13-2:27 in "Partying is such sweet sorrow" sounds like something straight out of a Hot Damn! song. I love it.

Excellent, can't wait!

what's up with user reviews giving this a 6.5 on lyrics???!
My only guess is biases against how blasphemous most of it is

I've had this album for a week, but this review was just posted on here, so I thought I'd share my opinion. I just feel that with bands of this style you need an interesting rhythm section (drums) and it lacks on this record making the guitars and the overall sound seem more simplistic than it really is.

I'm guessing you haven't heard the last two albums. the drumming is a lot better on this

Their best album, IMO. Shreds so hard all the way through.
