Album Rating: 4. Even the heavier songs on DTGL still have catchy choruses. I still think that DTGL is one of the best hard rock albums ever made. I was just making a point that if you're looking for catchy, sing along choruses that were featured in past albums then you'd be disappointed by this album. I'm not saying it was good it really wasn't but they were going for a death metalish sound. Ugh what am I doing trying to reason with you anyway. Album) just sort of sounded like you were implying that their past stuff was sprinkled with pixie dust or something lol not really but you know what I mean.
I see what you're saying, tho. I'm still pretty new to writing reviews but I'm enjoying every second of it! To me, it seems like a near-perfect release. I don't think they were going for a "Death-Metal" sound. I think they were going for a dark sound and they achieved it but they didn't step outside of their element to do it. I think Aaron's writing held them back as well. He seemed to have the need to have light spots in the albums the catchy points that didn't always quite fit.
I fixed them and I think it looks better. I guess I envy you because I really wanted to love this haha but keep reviewing!
C'mon now Changed that as soon as I learned I could. I like Underoath But I did my best to remain objective in the review I think I achieved it If UO's next release is god awful then I'll rate it as such Not since Define the Great Line has Underoath sounded so honest. JFH Music Review.
Fans were left wondering where the band will go and what sound they have in store for listeners. Here is a hint The title of the record is a touch ironic, as it seems the album is the band's most "ambiguous" release to date. Let's just say that Gillespie will be missed. In fact, several times throughout the album you might think you are listening to an older Norma Jean record. Without Gillespie in the songwriting process, the "new" Underoath has branched out a bit.
The opening track, "In Division," is one of the few standout tracks and gets the album going in a positive direction with great energy.
The song is a solid mix of both harder and softer guitars and a nice blend of screamed and clean vocals. The influence of Davison begins ever so slightly in "Catch Myself Catching Myself," and builds from there. The track does feature a solid chorus that will have you singing along to the slowed, clean vocal section. The final track that really stands out is "My Deteriorating Incline. You'll start feeling the groove as the lyrics, " I am the anchor " begin. The piece runs through the mark and then repeats shortly after.
It is solid overall, but not really what you are used to hearing from Underoath. The album easily falls short of the band's previous two releases, Define the Great Line and Lost in the Sound of Separation. If you are a longtime fan not sure what the future holds, give it a chance, you just might like it.
Whatever your thoughts may be going in, don't expect something to the quality of Define the Great Line. Maybe it's a false assumption, but I just don't see Underoath ever really being Underoath Vacant Mouth - Underoath - Ø (Disambiguation) (CD Aaron Gillespie. JFH Sponsor Spot.
