Wait what happened to Jonny? I must have missed something!
Also, I thought I heard this band was changing their name...? How out of the loop am I?

I have to add. Jonny didn't leave, he was kicked out because they were supposed to do a show and he flew back home to fulfill his heroine addiction. The new guy is Matthew McAndrew, who got his start on Season 7 of the voice.

They're changing their name after this release!

LETS GO. Slaves can be added to the 'Bands that find success after kicking Jonny'. Shit this album SLAPS

Yep, just finished the album. I really liked Beautiful Death, but this is levels above. Whole thing is just so catchy. Hope that they can kick on now and get some real success.

This is far above Beautiful Death. I had high expectations because Beautiful Death was so good. But fuck, they SMASHED this. I'm gonna say it....it's their best record, hands down.

I think Matthew is perfect for them and I can see some real success coming their way going forward

while most tracks here follow a pretty similar structure, literally every song here is a hit, every single chorus hits the beats they're supposed to. front to back bops fr, and I while I think I'd need some time to decide where it truly sits next to Beautiful Death, right now this is pretty much equal for me, Matt absolutely KILLS it in filling Jonny's shoes.

What happened to "Heavier"? This new version sounds weird, not a fan of that one. Overall good album, 8/10

fuck it, AOTY 2020

 

Every single track on here is fucking unreal, Matt's vocals > Jonny's vocals.

Every single track is beautiful and masterfully composed, every track flows so well, genuinely so many standout tracks it's hard to pinpoint my exact favourites.

 

I genuinely haven't been this impressed in a while, the hype was very much worth it damn man they're going to get mega after this album, they deserve this to be a breakout album.

 

10/10

To me this feels like a phc singer songwriter record because nothing is really special besides the composition and vocals. The instrumentals are nice but feel like accompaniment rather than an element worth paying attention to as much as the others.

The thing I love about this is the hooks. Every song has a 9-10/10 hook. The melodies are unexpected and beautiful and from the ones I've heard stay in your head for days. Matt delivers them very well.

The record's just great. I wouldnt be surprised if it makes top 10 of the year for me. Craig's Law continues to hold up

All I can say is HOLY FUUUUCK! This album is absolutely amazing. I literally got shivers on Multiple occasions and for me this is the first time In a while that an album has emotion that you can actually feel. Great work for this release.

I’ve been waiting for this album for along time and I’m honestly blown away. Amazing from front to back, they outdid themselves with this one! Thanks!

This album is fantastic.

I'm sure there'll always be a Johnny vs Matt debate about this band like there is with every other band that's kicked him out to date. Johnny has a fantastic voice for sure but take nothing at all away from the vocal performance on this album because it is absolutely sublime from start to finish. I also prefer the songs overall to their previous releases, I think they've really developed and found their sound and pulled it off perfectly.

I think this is a really strong release and I hope that it gives them enough exposure so that they can survive their imminent name change as bands can get lost during that transition.
