6/10. I honestly think Underoath kind of dropped the ball on this one. Not a whole lot of the songs really capture my attention. And it sounds like they're trying to be heavier just for the sake of being heavier, it sounds somewhat forced. I think They're Only Chasing Safety and Define The Great Line are both a lot better.

10 - Amazing CD. Everyone should own it.
9 - Among the best of the year.
8 - One of the top CDs around, but could have been improved in a few places.
7 - Not a bad CD, but could have been better in a number of places.
6 - Pretty good for it's genre, but overall it's only acceptable.
5 - Decent CD, but only if you're a big fan of this genre.
4 - If you love this band, you'll like this CD. Otherwise, probably not.
3 - If you're a fan of this genre, the CD is barely acceptable.
2 - If you're a big fan of this band, this CD is tolerable.
1 - Even if you like this band, you won't like this CD.

I give it a 9.

And a 9 because of only one flaw, which isn't really a flaw: a few of the riffs sounded very similar to DTGL. But after listening to it for almost a month now, i barely notice.

Great cd.

First time in two years I have put down Coheed and Cambria. Thanks Underoath. You saved me.

I listened to it twice now (just got it).

I think it is their heaviest in several years, but it's also slow.
Thats my main thing I have against this so far, its not as upbeat as what it feels like it should be, even though its heavier and the drumming is better, its just not fast enough.

Another little thing, i'm starting to get annoyed of Aarons vocals, but thats just what Underoath is. I'll get over it.

There seems to be a little too much resemblance to DTGL, regardless this could be their best release. Lyrics are awesome, seem quite personal.

I'll give it some more close listenings and leave a full review.

I kinda felt the same way the first few time through it, but the more I listen the more I like it.

Te vocals are great, his screaming is a little more diverse than DTGL (to me) and I like the parts where Spencer sings, those little bursts in between screams.

But, the guitar playing and the over all approach they took creatively seems a little better. Although, as any band, they do play into the same structure, somettimes, and use the same tricks, I just like this one better.

Plus, the guitar tones sound so much better on this one. I can't really describe it. LIke the mids were turned way up or something. idk.

Overall great.

Though, I haven't noticed the slowness as much as you. Granted, they have quite a few slow songs, but they are still brutal.

The first two songs are very fast put next to DtGL's first two songs.

I'll probably end up giving this a nine. Very solid, I think this is just UO in their element. My biggest beef is that for the most part, the singing and the screaming are more noticeably separated. In DtGL, they switched back and forth like lightning.

Also..."the Only Survivor".....I realllly wished they would not have gone soft with that song. I love the outro, but at least throw in something heavy at the end. The song changes pace too violently.

I think the singing and screaming seem more separated because the songs aren't quite as fast paced as DTGL.

This is a great album. I give it an 8.

It just didn't have the "HOLY CRAP" factor that DTGL did.

I can't say I expected them to duplicate it, honestly. That was my first really heavy cd, honestly.

And it was like...."yes....yes".

I gave it an 8. The lyrics are much improved, but the almost frantic, hurried quality to the screaming and drumming in the first two songs in particular dragged it down a bit for me. "Too Bright To See, Too Loud To Hear" is by far the best song on the CD, and "A Fault Line. A Fault Of Mine" is great as well. It is about on par with DTGL.

I gave it a 9.

It is a good as anything I've heard yet this year, and Spencer proves once again he is the man.

I really enjoy this CD, but I don't think it's better than DTGL, but still amazing. I gave it a nine.
