This album is so freaking amazing! This is probably the most unique screamo/post-hardcore band I have ever heard. Easy 10.

I'm really surprised that so many people haven't heard these guys though. They're on Tooth and Nail. I was so impressed by this album. The lead singer's voice just has something really cool to it.

yeah...well some of my friends have heard of them, but then some haven't (but that's not saying anything cuz they haven't heard of some really popular bands...haha) and yeah, the guy does have a cool voice.

I've heard them, seen them, and met them. Of course, it's ironic because I'm like 15 minutes from where the guys are from. I'm close friends with a youth pastor and he used to have some of the guys in his youth group, so yeah, small world. Anyway, yeah, they rock and are from a small town, so that makes it even better.

Ok, I've noticed in pretty much every cd review, the common post is either, "This album is awesome!!!11!!" or "I didn't really enjoy this album." So, I'm going to give this album a more in depth review:

Musically:
Let's just say, these musicians can play. Excellent guitar work is at play which ranges from complex jazz chords to metal rhythm lines. Specifically in "Too Pretty (To Be a Zombie)". The drumming also is very good. Great off beats in "Garage Band Degree (Everyone Else is Doing it, Why Aren't You?), "Roswell That Ends Well", and "Everyone is Out to Get Us".

Vocally/Lyrically:
Wow. Vocals are amazing. This guy has an excellent voice with an impressive range and control. But that's just his clean vocals. His screams are also very well done. From the low gritty growling to the high pitched shrieks, this guy can do it all. Lyrically is sort of odd. Most of the songs seem to be nonsensical. But I picked out a few meanings:
"Garage Band Degree"--This song seems to be about how the life of a rock star is just a lie and that partying isn't everything

Construct some nonsense that makes sense
But get a brand new pair of pants.
If you don't find the right t-shirt
then you might miss the first (act)
-----------------------------------
You've got your new dress on?
Dance to the song that you want.
You've got your hair teased up?
Dance to the song that you want.
You've got your tight jeans on?
Dance to the song that you want.
Now just lace up those chucks.

I would recommend this album to anyone. It's more than solid. It's amazing. I hope to hear something more from Far-Less again.

I'm not a huge fan of Far Less, then again, I've only heard four or so songs.

Have you heard "You knew what this was" or "Scorched earth policy"?

Both of these songs fall into the "Epic" category of song coolness. Epic is at the top.

Are any of the songs screaming throughout (no clean vocals)?

Track 7 is mostly screaming. But once you hear this guy's voice, you'll want him to sing too.
