Really pains me to say it, but their new CD is my disappointment of 2013 so far. It's not bad music but it's such a regression from the heavily melodic and heartfelt songs they've released in the past. New material sounds like radio rock for the most part and Brandon's vocals aren't nearly as versatile.

Love the album! But in my opinion, 'Open Eyes' is one of the weakest songs on that album! Did vote though ; )

This. I feel they definitely could've made a bigger impact by pushing a different song.

That's too bad dude, I like the album way more than their last one.

They've got a few songs that make you go "wtf?" but for the most part the album as a whole seemed pretty well musically.

I like the new album. I do think the debut was better but who knows, maybe the new one is a grower.

I'm glad you and others are enjoying it though - they really deserve any success they get. I'd say that IMO half the CD is very good and overall it has a nice smooth flow - good for summer evenings. However, guitar wise it's lacks the bite of much precious material and I just don't find Brandon's vocals nearly as engaging. Not to sound like a wuss but I was a but disappointed to hear him drop the f bomb too. Regardless, still good music but trails behind everything else they've done for me.

Truth, but the last album wasn't as good as the eps anyway. Band has been regressing since their first release

I wonder how much songwriting input the one guitarist that left had. That could be the reason for the subpar songs

good call on the vocals, I definitely agree with that; they definitely lack a bit of emotion.

Was a HUGE fan of the very first EP myself, probably my favorite from them still. I think FY was still a great CD and I listen to it a lot still but the production really hampered its impact at times. I'm thinking that guitarist had a decent amount of input for their older stuff has more of a post hardcore bite while the new CD is more slowed down rock with tinges of post hardcore if that makes any sense.

"The Descent of man" is a great song that kind of harkens back to their older style vocally, wish he hit that register/tone more often in the CD.

Also, since the band is getting more attention these days, some of you may find it interesting to hear Brandon's old band, Scarlet. It's a big change from Conditions as he mostly screamed. I was and still am a big fan of them and they never got quite the push they deserved;
