Amazing.

People can say sell out or whatever they feel, but this is the most diverse record NJ has ever put out. It has elements from previous albums as well as more melodic elements as well. I love every song and I can't stop listening to it.

10 from me.

Interesting, thats the first positive review i've heard from that album yet. I saw these guys a few days ago at Warped, and the played that Robots song. I can not stand that song at all, but I trust your judgement. I am looking forward to recieving this album.

I would say that Robots is the least heavy song on the entire record.

I love it.

A lot. I won't give it a number yet, but it's a 9 or 10.

And honestly, the new drummer is good. Maybe not as good as Davison, but I like him. My only real complaint was that his bass drum wasn't loud enough.

I honestly think that's the main reason why I've had a problem with his drumming. It just sounds all high end and stuff without the typical NJ sound. I loved the drum tone on Reedemer. The bass drum just had "smack" sound to it. I miss that on this album.

From first listen of this album I am very disappointed. For some odd reason I really like it when Cory or whatever his name is sings, that's why I loved Robots. I'll listen to it a couple times more though, maybe it'll grow on me.

Around the fifth song or so, I felt that the cd was kinda slipping, It grabs you, but gains butterfingers.

I gave it a 9, because I really liked it. It's the first heavy cd I've bought for the longest time.

I didnt really really like this album at first. But its growing on me.

Tracks 4, 6, and 10 are so far my favorites. The rest are having a harder time growing on me than those 3.

The only real problem I have with this record is that it isnt as chaotic as I was hoping it would be, and at times, Cory's singing makes him sound alot like the vocalist for 12Gauge Valentine. And I dont really care for that guys voice at all.

Good solid guitar work on this record though. They definately get a thumbs up from me on that part.

Im going to refrain from actually voting for right now. Im just not sure about this record yet. When Im sure how I feel about it, Ill vote. But if I vote now, itll be a hasty decision that Ill regret.

I watched the Behind the Scenes video for that over the weekend. The concept for the video sounded nice, and it turned out really good.

Norma Jean delivered the goods.


Im still iffy about whether or not I really like the album, but R3H0 is a very cool song.
