I used to hate Fear Before The March Of Flames, but their new record is fucking GOOD. It's like Muse, Minus The Bear, Cursive, Circa Survive and Scarlet all rolled up into one.

I'm intrigued...and slightly aroused.

He ain't joking, it's impressive stuff. For the hell of it, I'll toss in Refused in there for comparisons as well. It's a totally sound different from their first release and a nice, striking departure from Art Damage.

Seriously, how come people don't just listen to strictly overhyped hardcore bands?

It's pretty good.

At times I feel like it's just dragging on though and it gets slightly annoying. But all in all, very enjoyable and as stated already , a lot different then their previous material.

hardcore, lookout style pop-punk, and shoegaze are all you need

Everything else blows

I agree with Scott and Jordan. One listen to the beginning notes of "High As A Horse" and it should convince anyone that they've definitely took a turn for the better. There's so many quality songs on this record that are actually catchy in a weird but amazing way - unlike a lot of Art Damage.

Cmon guys, how can you possibly like this? The vocals are still terrible, and while the music is a small step up from their old stuff, its still nothing short of average.

It drags a little towards the end, but there's some seriously innovative shit going on here.

They definitely address the vocals in this song "Mouth". I can't find the lyrics anywhere cause they weren't in the booklet, but he says something like: "is his unintelligable squawking churning out anything worth listening to? (we're toning down everything, we're toning down everything) we're using you're suggestions (i think?), try to get the point across" then later something like "we're trying to speak clearly, but the voices get ..., we over exasperating (?), to the always open mouth". It is hard to tell exactly cause these lines usually come from the guitarist hidden beneath a ton of noise. Either way there's definitely some shots taken at their critics.

Well obviously they did use the critics' suggestions because it's a huge step up from AD. The first 2 songs on that album are pretty good but it's so hard to stay focused the rest of the way through.

This one, there's a lot of awesome moments but very few actual awesome songs. Still solid, but at least for me, I don't think they'll ever top Odd How People Shake.

i think barry just hates any music of this genre that sounds remotely influenced by Botch.

I wouldn't go that far, but Botch has such an distinct sound that it's hard to play anything like what they played without sounding like a complete knockoff. With that said this record gives me the impression they started worshipping converge a little more than botch this time around. Just becase this is what passes for hardcore in 2006 doesn't mean we have to say "ehh since there is nothing better coming out I guess I'll like it."
