Slaves - Beautiful Death (2018)

119 posts in this topic

I hope this is better than their last album. So boring. But their first one was a fucking masterpiece.

 

Their singles this time around were really good. Hope the album is the same way. Give it to me Slaves.

After only 1 listen, I can confidently say that it's their best work, but still far from their potential.

There's only 2 standout tracks, The Pact and True Colors (imo), but the rest sounds too generic.

...Aaaaaand repeat for 15 tracks and you basically have Routine Breathing (I’ll give Winter Everywhere a pass because that’s a great song which I suspect was largely written by either Tilian or someone else who didn’t write the rest of the album).

Do you play any instruments? The drumming and guitarists were more creative. You actually heard the bass on their last album an jonny knew what a vocal progression was. The example you gave btw. An please name all the songs on the last album filled with chugs...I'd love to hear this.

 

Not one song on this album is more creative. They used the same key sig lead licks on over half the song with repetive chorus x5. Jonny dialed it bqck vocally aswell an pulled a dtbm2. If you thought the last album is more repetive than this you're just lying to yourself lol.

 

Not one song on here is better than who saves the savior, if only we could change, winter everywhere.

First listen through - not really feeling it. I can tell I'll need to cut a few tracks like on the last album (definitely that second song, so weak). Rather See Your Star remains, as I was half expecting, the best track.

 

I hope to god this *isn't* AOTY, that would spell a pretty shitty year for music. I have a feeling the hype train is carrying this one.

I don't get the hype. I don't like anything of this album.

Do you seriously think he dialed it back vocally? This is the best his vocals have sounded. And you're definitely lying to yourself. Literally their last two albums blended together, if you listen without paying much mind, it sounds like the same song throughout each album. 

 

Every complain you're making belongs to each of their albums. Don't cherry pick. 

 

I play two instruments mind you, saxophone and Trumpet. And I've taken vocal lessons for 3 years. And you can very clearly hear the bass on this album, unless you're deaf. And the guitars were pretty on point. 

Jonny is a repetitive person. In Emarosa, Dance Gavin Dance, and Slaves.

Every album can be critiqued yes, but people saying this new album is less repetitive an more creative than the last album is just factually wrong. Better than the first album? Sure. But routine breathing is the best album music wise. Star, true colors, pact. Only songs that compare vocally to routine breathing. All the other tracks are a snooze fest vocally like dbm2 was.

Lmao did you just compare this to DBM2? If you really think that we're done speaking. How can you say factually wrong when music is opinion based?

I like DBM2 as well. If it had better vocals I'd agree with you.

 

It's okay. Dance Gavin Dance can never do worse than the tragedy that was Acceptance Speech

I'm probably being a bit harsh on AS. I don't think I was in the mood to listen to music and the overall vibe of the album felt weird to me

Well i listened to this. But...

 

It just doesn't compare to the debut. That was their best work today. Best production, creativity, etc. This one has a couple good songs and the rest really do seem like filler.

 

Way better than their sophomore, but nowhere near their debut.

This really does sound like a great Emarosa follow-up that just never happened. Good stuff!

Vocally yes, other than the tracks I mentioned. Vocally the tracks were "snoozefest city" see what I did there? Lol.

This is one of the most down to earth, Honest albums Jonny Craig has made. It's fucking Phenomenal. Best record Craig has ever made. Can't wait to see them Friday 3/2/18 in Chicago

I actually liked all of Slave's previous releases but this definitely blows the other projects out of the water.

 

Amazing!
