I'm 5 songs in, and so far i don't hear any similarities to FTWHH.... and I'm not complaining I've just heard people compare it to it.

FTWHH will always be their best imo.
I love that album, but for some reason, Homesick will always be my favorite.

Why don't you enjoy "Violence"?
Too much chug.

I personally love the "mosh call" elements and big breakdowns. It's kinda what they do and for me, that's not a bad thing. Maybe I'm easy to please, but those parts make me lose my shit in the best way.
Oh yeah.

More Bro-core not my thing.
No way. That is Emmure and Attila.

Sincerely enjoy "Sometimes You're the Hammer" and "Dead & Buried" more than any of the other non-ballad material here. Two of the best songs the band has written imo...the ballads on this record might be THE best songs they've ever written.
My thoughts exactly.

I'm not huge on "I Surrender", but I think "I'm Already Gone" and "End of Me" are really progressive steps in songwriting for them.
Those songs make this record imo. There is a few other greats but overall I still enjoy Homesick and FTWHH much more.

Finishing up my first listen right now. I'm not enjoying it quite as much as many, but I'm having fun with it, and that's all I can really ask from this band at this point. Still glad I purchased it.

I find that the album's brightest moments are without a doubt the pop-punk stuff and the ballads. Undoubtedly some of the best songwriting of the band's career in those moments. The heavy stuff just doesn't do it for me anymore. That tends to be where Jeremy's writing gets really cringe worthy and "tough guy" like. I actually laughed out loud at the "no fucking respect" line in "The Document Speaks for Itself". I'm just completely over that stuff.
lol I agree to an extent. I think they do a good job mixing it up though.

This record is great. I think Id give it an 8/10. Better than their last album.

"End of Me" doesn't fit on this record. It sounds exactly like a butt-rock ballad you'd hear on a mainstream radio station, like by Creed or something. Other than that this album is pretty good. I just think bands could be a little more creative with breakdowns. You can write a breakdown that isn't just open palm muted chords.
People who use the term "butt-rock" deserve to be kicked in the butt...
