Last year was an amazing year for Funeral for a Friend, the welsh five piece released their debut EP this August, to great response, and with the added energy of those songs live, the band built up an ever growing loyal fanbase. So, 6 months down the line, with Finch, Lostprophets, The Juliana Theory, Boysetsfire and Waterdown support slots under their belts, the band hit the studio once again, to record their second EP.
So, four new songs, and four new ways to scream names. The EP kicks off, with "This Years Most Open Heartbreak" a winding guitar sound, quickly blasting into a sharp loud and to the point intro, changing tempo again to welcome in vocalist Matt's vocals, 30 seconds into the EP and its apparent that the Funeral sound is very much still here, but they've streched the sound, and made their whole sound, so much bigger. Track two is "She Drove Me To Daytime TV" already known to most fans due to its inclusion in the live sets recentley and the fact that a radio-session version of the track was available to download on the bands website not so long ago. The track of course, to people who have heard it will sound very similar, but alot cleaner and polished. The studio version of the track, allows depth and a new soundscape into the track, and the results are capable of blowing wax right from your eyes. Third, is "Kiss And Make Up (All Bets Are Off)", the only track on this EP that wasn't played on the recent Waterdown tour, but don't take that the wrong way, this track is a beauty, and does for this EP what Juno did for the other, adds that little bit more melody, but still keeps the overall sound of the EP. And its "Escape Artists Never Die" that ends this EP, the set closer on the recent tour, and a beauty at that. "Escape Artists...

5.0 out of 5 stars Britains finest post hardcore outfit 16 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
From the first time i saw this band (at k-fest) they blew me away. The violent screams of the drummer and melodic vocals from singer Matt, penetrate your soul with harmonies and animositaic music anyone would enjoy. If "Between order and model" was to your liking then this second offering from the welsh five-piece will blow you away. Definitely one of the bands to watch out for in 2003, live and on record. Brilliant.

This is the second EP to be released by the Welsh quintet Funeral For A Friend.
And if you've already heard the first record then I'm sad to say that you aren't guaranteed to like this record.
However, that's only from what I've heard from a small pocket of people, most people love it. I know I do. This record is AMAZING.
It sounds more polished than the first record... There's a more kind of professional sound to it. It's also more melodic than the first EP.
The 4 tracks on it are stunning.
It starts off with the heavier songs on the EP "This Years Most Open Heartbreak" which is stunning and finishes with the melodic and brilliant "Escape Artists Never Die".
The track "She Drove Me To Daytime Television" is catchy as hell and like every other track has amazing guitar riffs.
The lyrics for every song is just genius as is the whole entire music for the songs itself.
Funeral For A Friend have a style which is truely their own... and if you like bands such as Thrice, Colour Me Dead, Aconite Thrill... and maybe even Dark Tranquilty (if you like the guitar riffs) you'd be a fool to miss out on this band.
There's lots of guitar riffs throughout courtesy of two guitars, and well tuned vocals. Well worth the price in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best record in 2003 8 April 2007
By K. Han
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
1) This years most open heartbreak:8/10: this really is a great song. it begins with fast hard hitting guitar/drum work and frantic screaming then as the guitars soar the melodic sound of the lead singer breaks through in the chorus. the song ends in an amazing bridge that will have you chanting "we will never be the same, the same old songs on a brand new stereo."

2) she drove me to daytime TV:10/10: again an amazing song that seems on a lighter more catchy side but still encompasses the hardcore screaming and excellent fast paced guitar work of the first track. The singing in this track really did blow me away;

"so turn your camera away from meee, spill your guts in 8mm"....amazing. probably my second favourite track on the album.

3) kiss and make up (all bets are off):9/10:yet another fantastic track which seems slightly popier than the others but is still powerful. An excellent track over all.

4) Escape artists never die:10/10: Definately the best track on the whole EP and possibly one of the best songs i have ever heard. This is an epic, powerful, amazing track it is both heavy and melodic with absolutely fantastic lyrics. "the red poison of your lips, the red poison of your eyes is where i kiss the blood from" is the opening lyrics and they just get better. The bridge of the song is absolutle musical brilliance "please some one help me, i'm dying here in front of you. please someone help me i'm dying here in front of you. with a hundred thousand lights timing is every thing, timing is everything to me." This song really is amazing, so good infact that i can't find the words to describe it to even a tenth of its true greatness.
