i listened to this album on their myspace. i was blown away. they remind me of between the buried and me a little. just with more melodic vocals.
I respect that you like, Protest the Hero, I'm also a fan. However....I don't think you could be any more far off course with the BTBAM comparison.
These guys thrive off of being spastic, at times it's controlled, but very spontaneous.
BTBAM on the other hand...quite, quite controlled.
then again...you're young...you'll develop a keen ear if you keep at it...
on a completely related note.....
I listened to this album today, Tom, you did a great job in your review. It sums up the album to a "t", I think it's a great listen and could definitely stand out for the majority of the year as one of the best albums.
