  1. I am very torn on this. I absolutely adore Fever and Jason, but i have to agree with @MinusTheMachine who took the words right out of my mouth by saying this sounds like "We're Coming In" (shit song) in large parts. Both lyrically and musically this is quite a bit more boring than the previous record, even if i do appreciate the heavy moments. I'm also not a big fan of them leaning into hip-hop more, i'm just not feeling it seeing as how i really fucking hate pure hip-hop music, and this leans too heavily towards that on some tracks. Bite Back and You Wanted a Fight are brilliant tracks, but then you have songs like Supremacy or Wrong Generation which are just repetitive or lean too much into hip-hop/rap for my tastes. I'll give it a few more spins, but i can already see me picking a couple tracks out of this to listen to regularly, with the rest being dropped.
  2. Listened to this once through now and this is a very weird album. I disagree completely that this is a "more mature LUN", i'd argue it's a decent departure from that album and has more in common with a lot of pop records than prog rock/metal. I think this album is brilliantly produced and even though i prefer LUN to my own personal tastes, it's cleverly written and it's high moments are probably higher than LUN's. There are a couple track son this album that could almost pass as really good pop songs, mainly Drive and Falling. You could cut drive down by a minute and a half, remove the solo, tune down the drums and you could probably get some pop fans into that track. They actually channel a bit of a CHVRCHES vibe on this album, wouldn't surprise me to find out they were fans. Vocals are always great with them, some of the notes she hits are just crazy, i always love listening to her. I like the almost old timey crooning she does at times too. FU is still pretty shit, and i think the last three tracks are pretty boring, but the rest of the album is solid and i can see people really liking this. I think i might listen to three or four of these tracks every now and again, but it won't be one i'll be playing regularly. Definitely solid though, and i get what the band are trying to do here. edit: Also the opening riff on Drive is exactly the same as the opening riff from Tyler Carters version of "Ain't it Fun" from Punk Goes Pop Vol 6. I knew it sounded like something but i found it at last
  3. I loved LUN, but that FU song was complete and utter trash. I'll give this a listen soon, but not hopeful based on the extremely lame single.
  4. Awesome stuff, one of the best features in a long time, absolutely perfect for the song.
  5. Fuck, this album absolutely crushes from start to finish. Acid Romance and Rot in Pieces are stupidly good tracks, and even the weakest one - Restricted (R18) - is good. They knocked it out of the park with this one, great stuff.
  6. I like this. It isn't as good as the full length, but i do like. The main issue with this though is definitely the lyrics, i agree with @Lonestar that they can get a bit cringe at times, which drops it below the full length.
  7. These guys are always just pure class, the emotion in the voice is always on point. Such a fantastic band for such a long period of time.
  8. Brilliant performance, absolutely amazing band. Only problem i had is that as someone who bought the ticket to watch live, i felt a little cheated that they basically played for 50mins of songs when they advertised the stream as being 2hrs long. Pretty scummy. I actually recorded the video/audio myself. Forgot to put it up anywhere though
  9. This is unreal, Courtney is legit demonic here. Heavy as fuck.
  10. Used to have a technology teacher at high school that we would refer to as "that tech cunt" because he was one of those losers who thinks being mean to kids made him seem important and authoritative. I presume this project was named after him. Shit slams hard, man.
  11. Bloodsport is incredible, and his voice is obviously amazing on the covers, but it's not really what i was hoping for. I agree fully with @mR12 about them being better live, and that a live album is so painfully obvious for them to do that i cannot believe they haven't yet done it. His recording voice is so vulnerable yet powerful with crazy control that he has no right to sound as amazing live as he does, but he absolutely smashes it live, there's no way such an album wouldn't be incredible. Oh well, i'll keep dreaming.
  12. I always thought this was one of their best songs - possibly their best song - so to see it get such a brilliant remaster is such a welcome surprise. For a band who's been irrelevant and pretty shitty for a decade, it's nice to finally have something come out from them that i like.
  13. Man, the instrumentals are ridiculously on point here. Rody is always great, that's just a given, but the instrumentals are as good as they've ever been, if not better. Rody kills it on From The Sky, by the way. Damn.
  14. Pretty good stuff. Cleans are nice, breakdown is cool.
  15. This album is fantastic, absolutely brilliant follow up to In Contact. I think the singles stand our as being the three most immediately strong songs, but the rest are definitely very good and these will no doubt grow on me as i listen more. It is slightly disappointing that the rest of the album is quite a bit softer than the singles, but it's so good it's not a big issue. Really solid effort, would easily give this an 8-8.5/10 based on first listen.
