Scared to hear this. I find the new singles so boring.
Shayley's absence was painfully apparent in those- his voice was what made the band unique- take that away and add Austin's new (pointless) vocal style and... Well... Just meh.

Will listen later, though, because I'm genuinely curious to see how everything else sounds. I wonder if the rest of their fanbase take kindly to the new music, or if it is just as polarizing for them as it is for me.

I really liked Bones Exposed.

It's alright. I doesn't sound like Of Mice and Men anymore though. Every song sounds like Jamie's Elsewhere + Nu Metal feat. Austin Carlile. Also not a fan of Austin's new vocal style. It's a lot less screaming and a lot more aggressive talking.

It has it's moments but overall it's only ever an okay track. You're Not Alone is clearly the worse of them both though- it's lyrics and chorus are just dreadful.

Is 2014 really that dried up that this record is on a "most anticipated" list for someone over 12? The debut was pretty ok, but they haven't captured that magic since and Shayley's departure is painfully obvious on this one. Feels like it couldn't decide wether it wanted to be a Nu metal Sempiternal or a To Write Love On Her Arms promo set to breakdowns.

Pleasantly surprised so far

Edit: "You Make Me Sick" made me sick, god that song was awful, worse than "You're Not Alone"

Wow. All you of you sound like high nosed elitists. This record crushes. I like how they've changed away from "the scene" and I'm refreshed by the different influences I hear. I always wanted them to stretch out more and widen their sound. Never dreamed I'd hear 90's Tool on some of these tracks. I'm digging it. Enjoy being another samefag repeating "it's just ok", "ehhhh", and "Wahhhh Shayley" he's in another band. Go listen to that instead if you're so unhappy.
