after having listened to this album quite consistently over the past 6 months i think it has to rank among the best i've ever heard. no other album sends so many chills down my spine. haunting, often dazy ambient sounds litter the first 30 seconds of the album before the New Jersey quintet burst into full life with the fast-moving melodic "Understanding In A Car Crash". Personal highlights on the album include the run-up to the highest note on "Concealer", the harmonic dual-lyrics complimenting each other perfectly, "Autobiography of a nation" especially the first time he sings (hits the note so sweetly and powerfully, i always get chills down my spine). The best song on the album doesnt come for 6 songs, but when it does it mesmerises you. From the opening drum intro, the subtle guitars build up to an emotive scream and a fantastic rhythm change into the chorus. Melody of the purest form and perfect song-writing perfection. The emotion that Geoff conveys on lines such as "we can rise on the wings of a dove", and "we can rise like candles in the dark" . The music behind these two lines is absolutely beautiful, i lvoe it it drives me. For those who say that the album contains fillers........i say go listen again, and again and again until you realise why that song exists where it does. Ive seen Winding-Up mentioned (a great slowish intro then it literally explodes into action half-way through). I Am The Killer and Paris In Flames are great pure thursday tracks, and then we see the softer side of them with songs such as Standing On The Edge Of Summer. Buy this album now, then buy "Waiting". "Waiting" isn't quite as good, more melodic than "Full Collapse". I've had the new album a couple of weeks, listened to it loads, but not enough to review yet. Very promising though!! Check out "For The Workforce, Drowning", "War All The Time" and "This Song Brought To You By A Falling Bomb".
