I agree that Jimmy was more unique than most hardcore acts, but the scream was a little annoying.

I miss Jimmy, you can't go replace him. He was Haste The Day to me, thats what I think of, the vocals, when I think of their signature sound.

Ya I'm still kicking myself in the butt for spending money on this. . .

Of course I support every solid state band for the heck of it, but its garbage.

I have been re-visitng this album lately. I love Dreamer, and Burning Bridges is completely epic, but Pressure the Hinges is still my favorite I think.

I like Stephen's vocals better on this album I think. They're deeper.

Yeah, in fact, this whole album just seems more bassy and deeper. There's not really much bass to Dreamer. The whole mastering process seemed to be more high end oriented.

my take... awesome CD! I got it at Sonshine right before HTD went on stage. I do like Jimmy Ryan's vocals better (they seemed more unique), but Stephen Keech is still awesome. HTD is my favorite metalcore band with either vocalist. Best songs are "The Oracle", "Servant Ties", and "Chorus of Angels" (check out my tab)

That's actually what I like better with the new singer. Just listen to Burning Bridges, Jimmy was one of the most repetitive, boring vocalists I've ever heard. It was the same thing every song, if he had a good vocal range, he sure didn't show it. I know the vocals weren't the only thing to blame for Burning Bridge's repetitive sound, but Jimmy showed absolutely no variety.


9/10. Easily Haste The Day's best album. Very few songs disappoint. The blend of clean vocals with screaming is fine tuned to perfection. I think songs like Stitches and The Minor Prophets showcase just how those two vocal varieties should be used together. This is one of my, if not my favorite metalcore album.
