6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE on 10 April 2007
Format: Audio CD
when the doors released the soft parade in 1969 it shocked so many of their fans,i know this as i read it,i wasnt born readers,the reason for the shock was the use of trumpets and saxaphones and so forth,it shocked and alienated so many of their fans who lived for their bleak and minimal style,skip forward some 38 years with screamcore legends posion the well and the same thing could well happen,i hope not and in my opinion this is a masterful album.

The band now fuse horns,banjo,mandolin,trumpets,trombones,slide guitar and electric organs along with their fierce riffs and screams,it shouldnt work,it shouldnt be on this album maybe,but it does work and it turns versions into one of the most exciting albums of the year.

The main thing here is the use of imagination within the band,they werent afraid to try something new,album opener 'letter thing' lifts the roof of the building with its frantic pace and all the while a ripping banjo can be heard in the background,it is almost laughable but shivers will leave your spine at a million miles per hour,throughout the album there are slower,more ballad type songs and all of the instruments gel to deliver stunning results,vocalist jeff has always had a vunerable edge to his clean vocals and here he uses them more than on any previous poison the well album and again to great effect.

The track 'riverside' is one of the most memorable that the band have ever recorded,and 'pleading post' is dark and fragile and again stunning,pretty much all here works,and thats a credit to the band,nothing out there really sounds like this now,4.5 out of 5 album,so if i have helped you get this then you can thank me later.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gertrude Stein on 27 July 2007
Format: Audio CD
Once renouned for their breakdowns and their scream filled tracks, Poison The Well, have undergone somewhat of a transformation, over their last two albums. Is this a bad thing? HELL NO!!! You can only use the same formula for so long, before it becomes stale.

Where as their previous album 'You Come Before You' displayed signs of growth and a more refined sound, it didn't abandon their trademark sound all together. More like combined a new sound with their old one.

One 'Versions' however, they sound like a completely new band. The distorted guitars are replaced with cleaner overdriven ones and the songs are epic affairs with more singing than ever before. This results in a truly astonishing album, that mixes hardcore and counrty music like never done before.

HIghlights include

1. Letter Thing - This opening track is probably Poison The Wells best ever song. Its a very fast punky number, filled with overdriven guitars and a killer drum beat. Vocally its also fantastic. - 10/10

3. Nagaina - A huge depature from their usual sound. This is pretty much an indie track, but with a fantastic bouncing verse, that eventually as the song closes out, leads to angry screams of frustration and a more sinister edge. 9/10

9. You Will Not Be Welcomed - Starts off with a huge sounding musical intro, before kicking into a subtle sounding indie verse. Then the chorus kicks in to reveal the most aggressively screamed song on the album and one of the best. 10/10

Even if you didn't like the 'old' Poison The Well, you'll love this. For me this band have raised the bar yet again. They have produced their best and most mature sounding album to date, not letting line up changes slow them down.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Liam Wharnsby on 26 Mar. 2007
Format: Audio CD
I love poison the well. I have all the albums and the ep. This album is more of the same from where You Came Before You left off. It's better in my opinion than that album though. It's faster and slower, with more melody. The lyrics are brilliant as ever. For some reason mine has already been delivered, although its not out for at least another week, but I didn't order it from amazon. All I can say about this album is that I love it. Hardcore rules and is more alive than ever, poison the well do it better and with more balls than the other bands and aren't hindered by line-up changes and record deals. This is true music. Buy it now!

After hearing Letter Thing, I ordered this album immediatly. The whole record is as quality as that track, and it's unlike anything I've heard recently. It actually forces you to pay attention! Great stuff.

I waited 4 years for this album, definitely worth the wait.

Standout tracks are all of them especially 'The First Day of My Second Life' and 'Breathing's For The Birds'.

Poison the Well's 'Versions' is a masterpiece.
