5.0 out of 5 stars Consistant return from Post Hardcore Favs 24 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a long term FFAF fan, I am suitably pleased that after a slight dip in standard on TDTT, the boyos ave rediscovered some of the quirks which made them award winners earlier in their career. A touch of screamed vocals, but not too much as that genre is so overdone and passe now, and more importantly a return to time signature changes which they used to such good effect on early EPs and CDADIC. In feel this album is closer to Hours I guess, but pays homage to earlier styles, and tracks like Waterfront Danceclub, Cant see the Forest and Beneath The Burning Bush, are slotting in beautifully with the old stuff on their live set.

There isnt a bad track on the album, and I guess still some slow burners for me yet, in months to come I suspect Maybe I Am, Constant Illuminations et al to bury in my brain and take up squatters rights.

The DVD gives 3 vids, making of WD, an amateurish interview with a guy from Dirty Sanchez and some commentary on each track (which is a bit plodding)but all in all the DVD is worth paying the extra few quid for if you are a collector of FFAF stuff.

Great album from a great band, but if you want to see hear them at their best go see them live, they'll melt ya face !

5.0 out of 5 stars Funeral back to their best!! 15 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
After their last album, Tales Dont Tell Themselves, Funeral needed to return stronger and harder. And im glad to say that they have created an album that is back to their edgey and powerful best. Waterfront danceclub was the perfect way to start, powerful and fast paced. Its back to the days of Roses for the Dead. I have yet to find a bad track on this album. As soon as i heard the first few tracks, i had a smile on my face. As this was just what we all needed. I cannot recommend this album enough and am now definately going to the tour. BUY IT!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid 4th Album 1 Nov 2008
By Rick UK
Format:Audio CD
I've followed FFAF since I picked up Casually Dressed in my local music shop several years ago having never heard any of their material before. I wasn't disappointed. Like the other reviewer I have always felt their strength has been in crafting big strong melodic rock songs peppered with some excellent 'metal' musicianship. Memory and Humanity doesn't deviate from this foundation and provides another quality, highly listenable album.

The absence of the screamed vocals, (being only present on a few tracks) will probaby deter the Casually Dressed fundamentalists, but to be honest I prefer the more natural vocals it works better with the style of music. Screaming is all well and good in the context of angry political rantings and hardcore death metal, but for me it sounds a bit 'forced' and out of context here.

I was not even aware of this album until i went to their excellent live show. The new material sounded just as good as anything else they played and like many of the crowd I was surprised when they pointed out that they had just released a new album, under their own record label, (hence the lack of expensive marketing). I've listened to the album several times now and there are some excellent tracks encorporating all the classic elements of their sound. It's not a huge departure from Hours, Tales or CD for that matter (bar the sreams), if anything it blends elements of all 3 previous offerings. The result being a good solid 4th album that shouldn't disappoint existing fans and also provide a good starting point for newcomers.

This album was created on the concept that they were gonna move away from the sound of TDTT. and revert back to their origins with slightly heavier music which we all know and love, including areas of the raw screaming prior to "Tales" performed by Ryan Richards. Saying this they stated they never intend to go exactly back to the days of "Casually Dressed..." because a sound should always be moved forward (I couldn't agree more.) Anyway it's safe to say they've done this. "Memory and Humanity" is brilliant not quite like their roots but still a more rockier album than anything they've released before or at least recently with more energy and brilliant melody as always. The track "Building" is a slow, light ballad with a beautiful sound. "Rules and Games" a brilliant opening with cracking verses and an amazing chorus, "To Die Like Mouchette" simply brilliant song with an awesome title. My criticisms are that the screaming vocals still are a bit minor, with only the single "Waterfront Danceclub", track 4 and 7 containing any in, and it has a scarce presence in those tracks as well but hey, not everyone's a screamo fan, i've just always thought it suited them. Also the track "Charlie Don't Surf" for a split second makes me question why I've bought the album, only because of how sheerly awful it is, it fits absolutely nothing with the rest of the album, or for that matter with FFAF's sound at all, the same goes for the finale "Constant Resurrections" a very boring and unatmospheric song, but don't let that put you off, everything has a downside. take these 2 out of the situation and the album is brilliant. buy.
