Bring Me The Horizon are a band that grew on me. I'll admit, upon hearing 'Pray For Plagues' for the first time I was a little put off by just how heavy it sounded (Having listened to bands like Alexisonfire and The Devil Wears Prada before) but I gave the song a few listens and started to like what I was hearing. 'Pray For Plagues' is the opening to this album and from then on it does not fall short.

'Count Your Blessings' is not something you can play through once and get the feel of straight away. It is, however, an album that once you know well, only gets more satisfying to listen to. The tone of the entire thing is merciless and the breakdowns blended with the vicious vocal work of Oli Sykes go together perfectly. The unclean vocals are some of the best I've ever heard.

The only possible criticism I have (With the exception of 'Fifteen Fathoms, Counting' which is the slower instrumental piece) is that few of the tracks sound a little similar and it can sometimes be hard to distinguish them apart when not giving full attention to the music. This is no reason to be put off, it's just something I noticed when doing other things with the album on in the background (I would find myself thinking 'Hey, what track is this again?')

The album art and inside book are also very nicely designed (Even if a little dark) and really give it a feel that represents the music.

Bring Me The Horizon are certainly not lacking talent. Past their image (Which I personally don't mind but it irritates some) are a solid band.

They have more than proven themselves with 'Count Your Blessings'.

Count Your Blessings is undoubtedly one of the most hyped albums of the year, and it is therefore extremely hard to be objective when listening to this album. BMTH are somewhat a Marmite complex - you either love 'em or hate 'em. Many will be deterred by the 'scene kid' image of the band (myself included to begin with), but this should not detract from the band as a whole. Furthermore, many are also persuaded to be malicious as BMTH have enjoyed such a meteoric rise to stardom, when other, equally deserving bands remain in the metal underground. But... this is a solid debut album and very, very impressive (without meaning to sound patronising) for such a young band. This is not the average now common-place emo pap that you might expect from BMTH. Count Your Blessings is a hard-hitting accomplished metal album with face melting solos, pounding double pedal and chilling vocals. The songs (except for the somewhat out of place 'Fifteen Fathoms Counting') are fast, technical as you like, furious anthems of youthful exuberance - BMTH can, and will continue to, rise if they continue in this rich vein of metallic form.

However, as I. Lehnert mentions below, Count Your Blessings does not necessarily break any boundaries, operating in a safe, albeit more underground area of the metal spectrum. One cannot help but think when listening that BMTH are perhaps only a poor-man's Black Dahlia Murder. The Black Dahlia Murder do the same general genre as BMTH but with somewhat more technicality. For instance, if you think the drumming on Count Your Blessings is insane (not saying it isn't, I wish I could drum like that!) try Miasma by TBDM for size. BMTH are also not overall as 'tight' as more established bands. This will, however, yet come.

If you like heavy music I recomend this position. Strong guitar sound in composition with strange but also unique voice of vocalist.

Bring Me The Horizon's debut studio album Count Your Blessings is quite different from the albums which would follow it. Whether you would call later albums too light or this album too heavy may affect your enjoyment of this album, in a manner which largely depends on your taste for either extreme metal or metalcore and also possibly which version of the band you heard first.

If you've only heard Bring Me The Horizon's later albums you may be surprised by this record, which features no clean vocals, numerous blast beats and riffs much more influenced by death metal than on later works. The production is a lot less polished too, and there are no electronic influences or samples to be found.

The album is certainly a grower and will get better with each listen. If at first the tracks seem a little samey through out, or if you aren't used to this band playing this style, it gets better with repeat listening.

It has been said that the band are very sloppy and that the drumming is poor but all these comments I feel are more suited to the live environment than in the studio.

One further reason to dislike this album would be the angry, anti-female lyrics and large number of spiteful breakup songs which may be off putting for many. I find I can just ignore the lyrics when the vocal patterns and delivery are good, so don't have as much of a problem with this as some.

Of course, some people will hate Bring Me The Horizon no matter what, they seem to be one generation's band that are cool to hate, but for those who are willing to be open minded, this album is worth checking out.

I find this to be an enjoyable album, and listen to it fairly regularly. For me, it isn't the best album in the world but is far from the car crash I've heard it is made out to be. Perhaps a `try before you buy,' album, but if you like the band I definitely recommend that you at least try.
