Thanks guys, this is my first review ever so I appreciate any criticism.


well written, love the album and the band, hopefully ill get to see them in april. they put on a good show?

They put on a great show, if even only because their fans are so into it there is so much energy in everything and I absolutely love going to see them. Now I've only seen them here in the East Coast, (they're from NY) so I don't know if this is the case everywhere.

Good review. I'd also like to add that while going through and commenting on the technical aspects of all the songs seems to be a pretty popular way to review an album here on AP, I'd like to see more about the themes of the lyrical content; the overall story-arc of the album. That seems to be missing from a lot of reviews lately.

Anyway, I love this album. Take from my post what you will.

Thanks for the advice, I can appreciate what you mean. The hard part is actually applying it, hah. Like I wrote in my previous comment, this was my first review, but it is something that I would love to get into doing and provided that I start getting good at reviews I hope that I can someday write more out of the box reviews that do show a full understanding of what the band is trying to say conceptually. It is also hard to do that with some bands, because they simply aren't telling a story through the album but rather wrote the songs here and there, but you're right, there are plenty of albums that have overarching themes that would be nicely explored in a review rather than the same old vague descriptions of tracks.
