5.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore but not as we know it... 29 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whoever it was that recommended this band to me, god bless them! From the first track I heard I was hooked on these guys. Why? What makes them different? Well I'll tell you. There are many hardcore bands out there that try to give there music an emotional edge, but what you generally end up with is some pussified emo-hardore rubbish that sounds like all the other junk out there. What these guys have managed to do is make music that is brutal, aggressive and complex, while at the same time infusing it with heartfelt emotion and bitter sweet lyrics. Behind each song there is a crunching, chugging guitar riff carrying you along, coupled with the singers screaming which has a real gravely, raw sound to it. But somehow from these powerful sounds, a very beautiful and fragile undertone is present.
On the insturmental tracks, which are all superb, they create amazingly pleasent melodies that just put a smile on your face. This whole album is beautifully crafted from start to finish, stand out tracks include "Nothing" and "Healing Yesteryear". This album is a must for any hardcore/metalcore fan that wants something a bit different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metalcore at it's absolute finest! 26 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I waited so long to get my hands on a copy of this cd, after hearing the first album, and i wasn't disappointed, the music is just as skillful and talented as the first time around, and the lead singers voice has developed a little, not that there was much room for improvement! The untitled instrumentals are mellow, but not to the point where u get up and change the track, if you're into skycamefalling, or even if you're not, get this! even if you only buy it for track four('the nothing'), 10.21 is one of the best albums in my collection, apart from the first album(...to forever embrace the sun), oh yeah, and Converge(all of the albums)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the year and a half wait. 4 Jan 2001
By Joe Trohman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album was supposed to come out when I was 10. Well, not really. It just feels like it was supposed to. Ferret Records would hype up this album for so long till it came out. I got into this band when they released their flawless MCD on Goodlife Records. This is equally amazing, if not better. It's been a long time in the works, but it's been well worth the wait. I am so bad about describing the sound of bands unless they are blatantly ripping off some other band. I'll try with this one. I guess people have always tried to compare Poison the Well and Skycamefalling with each other. I sort of agree there. I mean, Skycamefalling definetly does the sleak emotional metalcore mixed with some singing parts. Except the singing parts in here are more monotonous and depressing, which is cool cause it fits with their ever progressing style of suicidal metalcore (read the lyrics, especially of the old CD). Their live performane is also flawless, and they are just the nicest people. I think they are touring so check them out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest band. Period. They will be missed. 7 Dec 2002
By "closedforwinter" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Awesome. The only (hardcore) band other than Endeavor I could get my girlfriend to listen to...AND ENJOY! I can't even explain them. It's an experience you need to hear for yourself. I originally got it from a friend who was telling me "This band is gonna blow up like MAD! You gotta hear 'em!" I listened to the couple tracks he was raving mad about and didn't really care too much for it. A few months later at the Cryptopsy tour I noticed the drummer for Poison the Well was wearing a Skycamefalling shirt. I thought I'd give them another try and listened to a track of my choice, With Paper Wings. After listening to it, I HAD to go out and buy the CD. The best song off the album is Laura Palmer, hands down. There are 2 versions of it floating around. The studio version on the CD (as opposed to the unmastered version) is light years better. Ever since then I've been dying to see them on tour and haven't been able to make it to any of the shows. And now the band is calling it quits after they finish their tour and play a final show in their home town of Syracuse, NY. Crap. Oh, well, maybe I'll take the bus, cuz this band is THAT GOOD.

4.0 out of 5 stars everything music should be 1 April 2002
By "scooby-dew" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
in a world where bands like the backstreet boys and britney spears can achieve fame and worldwide recongnition by singing songs they didn't even write and were in no way part of the creative process, skycamefalling are the reminder that if you dig deep enough through today's superficial music industry you will find music filled with real emotion.
when i first heard skycamefalling i didn't listen past the screaming and the heavy riffs, but after a lot of people pestered me to give 10.21 a real chance, i finally heard what all of my friends had been describing. this CD is incredible, a genuine brilliant achievment, and i am a guy who loves led zepplin, grateful dead, eric clapton, etc, so i do know what i am saying, and i do know the praise i am heaping upon this band.
in the genre of emotional hardcore/screamo, these guys have almost produced a whole new medium with which to express emotion. instead of the melody driven songs of bands like dashboard confessional and the juliana theory, they have stripped the music down, sometimes to the bare essentials, and in this rawness there is an amazing honesty of emotion. at the same time, these guys are great musicians, listen to the song '10.21' or the interlude song #5, or even the quiet breakdown in the middle of 'laura palmer'. it almost seem that you must break through the surface of skycamefalling's music to get a true appreciation of the contribution they are making. all the songs are long, full of many different parts - both quiet and heavy, and the songs all need to be listened to in full before a real judgement can be made, because the songs change so much throughout their duration.
i highly recommend this album... and i heard these guys are incredible live.
if you want to get a taste of what you are getting into, i recommend downloading these songs: 'laura palmer', 'the nothing', 'healing yesteryear' (the end of this song is incredible), '10.21' and 'the truth machine'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skycamefalling's Only Full Length, But Boy Did They Go Out With A Bang 14 Dec 2005
By LeftManOut - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are few records out there that have shaped the face of the modern hardcore style and what it has become. The masterpiece known as "10.21" is one of those records, along with the equally beautiful "Opposite Of December" by Poison The Well. Simply said, there are many bands today that owe a debt of gratitude to this record and the band that produced it, because it has become one of the most essential modern day hardcore albums, and a classic in every respect of the word. If you are in love with the melding of beauty and chaos, then Skycamefalling is a band that you must listen to, because I'm sure you'll see hints of them in many of the bands you listen to today. "10.21" is just an album that sounds as good today as it did five years ago, and one that will sound as good five years from now as it does today.

In many ways Skycamefalling were one of the most innovative and creative bands in the hardcore genre. If you notice bands today inserting small acoustic parts, or going from a brooding assault to a beautiful melodic interlude, you can thank Skycamefalling for that. Before "10.21" combining things like acoustic guitar parts, piano or soft melodic sections was unheard of, but somehow SCF made it work, and most importantly they made it work well. Musically the ideas pioneered by this band, intense riffs, heavy breakdowns, and poetic lyrics, are still some of the founding principles of the hardcore genre today. These guys really were amazing in every aspect of their sound. As far as the common sing/scream technique, which was given much headway by Poison The Well on "Opposite Of December", Skycamefalling took it a step further. The melodic vocals are extremely haunting and soothing where they are inserted, not whiny, high pitched or emo, and not overdone in the least. That is a problem with a lot of hardcore bands today. Most try to come up with catchy hooks or emo choruses, and just throw out random melody so they can attract a bigger audience. Skycamefalling only placed the melody where it was appropriate to do so, and where it would help to further the songs. Of course there is a much greater ratio of screaming to singing. Vocalist Christopher Tzompanakis really carries this band. His vocals just give every song that much needed heavy, yet extremely melodic edge. And just when you think the extreme screams can't get any better, Cameron Keym inserts those haunting background vocals that will just send chills up your spine. The opening song "With Paper Wings" is enough to evidence everything that's been said. The blistering chaos seemingly transforms into a melodic atmosphere, only to gracefully bow out with a soothing piano passage at the end. The guitars also stand out along with Christopher's vocals, as Cameron and John show where the hardcore guitar style has progressed from. I like many other fans could go on for days about the musicianship, the vocals, the intense riffs, the melodies or the dynamic elements presented on "10.21", but I could never do it justice. This is an album you must hear to appreciate.

As far as the structure of the album is concerned, it flows beautifully. Songs are very diverse and incorporate a variety of elements in each, which makes every song distinctly different from the previous. For fans who like melodic tendencies, "With Paper Wings", "The Nothing", and "Healing Yesteryear" will be right up your alley, while fans of heavier material will be at home with pieces like "Laura Palmer" and "Porcelain Heart Promises". Skycamefalling was also one of the first hardcore bands to explore adding interludes to further the flow of their albums. This is shown by the band's introduction track, the instrumental track #5 and the album's epic title track "10.21". Before SCF many bands just rounded their cds out at 8 or 9 songs, and paid very little attention to the flow or atmosphere of a record. Today it's hard to listen to a band's cd that doesn't have at least one interlude, an intro or an outro on it. However many bands just insert random passages that do nothing to accentuate the music, just to make their album seem longer, and many listeners skips these interludes. With Skycamefalling, you'll find yourself listening to every song, every intro, and every interlude. They just had a way of making music that few bands possess. This is a record that you can put on and simply listen to the entire way through, no skips, pauses or stops. Skycamefalling can fully capture your attention and hold it throughout the entire course of "10.21". Chances are if you've never had the pleasure of listening to this cd, you're going to be amazed at how you can't stop listening during the 62 minutes this cd lasts.

I don't want to drag on too much about how amazing this cd is, because as you can tell I am very biased towards it, simply because it has been so influential to the hardcore/emocore genre, yet is not widely known. However maybe it being not as widely renowned as say "Opposite Of December" is a good thing, because it gives you an intimacy with the band and this cd. I will simply say that if you listen to hardcore/metalcore/emocore or any of the other derivatives, I would suggest that you pick up this cd along with "Opposite Of December" by Poison of The Well. I think you'll be surprised to see that many bands today are mimicking Skycamefalling's sound. Like Janitor X said, there's a reason that bands are trying to sound like this. However few can ever capture the intensity and beauty this album has, and that my friends is why this is a must own album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive example of balance between beauty and chaos 26 Dec 2004
By Mylifeyourmovie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well it has taken me almost 5 years now to write anything about this album to someone other than my own friends. After reading the many great reviews of this cd, I still don't feel it is getting enough credit. My first intentions when I began writing this was to remain orderly, exacting, and precise, without wandering off and just exclaming it's greatness. Since I've failed miserably at that, here it is:

This record is simply timeless.
I could go on and on for days about the riffs, the incredible songwriting, the technical brilliance of this cd altogether. I could go on about their amazing transistions, how well the cd flows, or how incapable I am of putting this record on and not listening to every single second of it.

I guess in the long run though, the only thing I am truly incapable of is describing just how amazing this cd is.

If you're even a mild fan of metalcore, emocore, metal, hardcore, whatever...and you haven't heard this cd (and moreover, don't love it)....shame on you. When I think of amazing albums among the hardcore/metal scene, two come immeadiately to mind: The first being "opposite of december" by Poison the Well, and the second being this. It is a must have, a must love. You will never find such raw emotion, such honesty, such despair, within any record other than this. It chills me to the bone every single time. The lyrics are amazing. Poetry. Complimenting this and capturing the essence of this emotion, is the desperate, dying nature of the vocals on every track. Every line is delivered with genuine and passionate brilliance. I am stopping myself now.
I don't care if you buy this album. Go download it. Go rip it from a friend. Steal it. Kill for it. I really don't care. Just make sure you hear it in it's entirety.
Your conception of beauty will never be the same.
