Where’s the band that released Chasing Ghosts and Let the Ocean Take Me? CG was really good and LTOTM is phenomenal.
I get it. Bands evolve and that’s fine, but the quality of the songwriting and riffs should be the same or better. I was so excited for This Could Be Heartbreak and I hated it when it came out. It didn’t feel like it had the same intensity of previous albums. I was hoping This Could be Heartbreak was just a fluke (I’ll admit I’ve come to like that album more over time) but when I heard Misery, it was worse. It just fell flat for me like Memphis May Fire’s Broken.
Feels Like I’m Dying has grown on me and I like a few other songs like Burn Alive and Black Death. The lyrics for a lot of these songs are not on the level we’ve come to expect. Holier Than Heaven and D.I.E. are so repetitive and boring. Maybe Misery would’ve come out better if it was also produced by Will Putney? Joel said Will challenged him and told him he could do better with his song lyrics. It doesn’t feel like Matt Squire did that on this album.
I’m hoping their next album will be a return to form. We Came as Romans’ self-titled album was hated by a lot of their fans for not being as heavy and sounding more mainstream. They came back with Cold Like War which is a great heavy album that’s still a progression in their sound, so I know it can be done. Let’s hope TAA can do that same thing with their seventh album.
This album is trash
I've been a long time fan of the group. I seen them in Minneapolis and Denver at Warped Tour. This album is definately not what I liked from the band. Maybe one song or two is ok, the rest is garbage. Not happy with their changed sound. I loved Youngbloods, Bring the Weather with Me, and many previous albums. NOT THIS, save your money.
Not bad at all
Coming from someone who’s favorite band started at “sounding the seventh trumpet” and is somehow got to “the stage”. This is still good compared to past albums.
Initially I hated this record and wrote it off. A couple of months back a gave it a few more listens, then a few more, etc. This record is great, I'm only sorry that I didn't appreciate it at first due to my inability to accept change with the bands sound. Give it a chance, you'll be glad that you did.
This album is so terrible that it’s hard to believe this is the same band. They literally took a decent band and toss them into the garbage with this album. Sorry it really is Doomsday for them.
Is this a joke?
By Dylan chillen
Why do metalcore bands keep turning into this soft sellout trash. How can they go from Youngblood’s to this garbage. I feel like this has to be a joke. Like, if you showed me this album 6 years ago and said this is Amity in the future I would say “haha good one.”
Never liked this type of music
I was never one to like this kind of music till a friend of mine played “on the weigh down” I have a a 1000 songs ranging from every genre. This is the only band that I down load the full albums right off the bat. They’re amazing live as well. P.s thanks for the pick kyle.
Suprised... just not pleasantly
By Guy who got the app
I purchased this album thinking it would be as good if not better than their previous albums. I was definitely suprised but not in a good way. It sounds like a suicide note performed by Attack Attack. It doesn’t have the heavy riffs that TAA is known for and instead has a lot of synthesizers in their place. I would recommend trying before you buy this album so you don’t burn your money on it.
Different but good
Not as metal as before, but I can still dig it
Just listen to it......
I had to listen to the album a few times but grew to absolutely love it. New sounds but classic TAA at its best. Set me Free, Ivy, Drag the Lake great songs!!!
