Sorry for the caps, but wow. That's dangerous. I mean like, really, dangerous.
That would be me. I gave it that for the only one song on the CD that was remotely decent. In all honesty, if they kicked Spencer, put Aaron up front, and got another drummer, I would like them so much better...

Eh...is that supposed to be a burn against Underoath?

Seriously, this is a screamo band. You can't turn it into all emo, and kick Spencer. Aaron is better as backing anyway, imo. And the drums....What the hell?! The drums are incredible! I don't know how you can not call that talent.

All of Underoath's fans (with the exception of AX, here) would totally spaz out if they kicked Spencer and made Aaron the frontman.

Spencer is a perfectly good vocalist.

Agreed. Having Spencer up front is what makes it Underĝath. (Ah, I love the accent-mark plugin for Firefox!!)

Okay, now that I've heard Define the Great Line, it's time for me to weigh in...AWESOME!!

Okay, this is my first Underĝath CD, and so I was expecting quite a bit...well, it fulfilled. I think the big part I like about it is that they scream, but it's not about the screams. It's also about the instrumental arrangements (like Salmarnir, which was an awesome song, BTW) and the contrast between Aaron's vocals and Spencer's screaming.

The really cool thing about it was that it told a story of sorts. If you read through the CD booklet, looking at the pictures and looking at the lyrics, it almost starts to fall into a pattern, with Salmarnir as the turning point of all the action. The first four songs are full of despair and wallowing in darkness. Then comes Salmarnir, which is from the Icelandic Bible, a Psalm about God calling all his people. Then after that, you've got songs about a soul making its way towards God, until you get to "Behind the mask you'll find yourself alone/it's not the end of the road for you."

(Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but that's what I got out of it)

Not incredible enough to merit a 10 (which I will probably never give to any album), but definitely a 9.
