Biography

Plenty of bands like to yammer on about how their newest record is a “return to their roots,” as if some undiscovered brilliance is to be found and resurrected on early demos and basement jam sessions. But the in case of ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (or Trail of Dead from here on out, because who really wants to type all that over and over), a return to form could ...

Longstanding fans seem to be lamenting the fact that they don't rock anymore, since their days of "Source Tags & Codes". Having not heard the album, I can't really comment on whether they were a better Punk / Rock band or this prog rock ensemble (somebody described them as emo, but I can't see that).

I quite enjoyed their last album (Worlds Apart), though there were some songs I found a bit flat & dull, mainly due to their desire to be "weird". I said at the time they remind me of The Flaming Lips or Modest Mouse, and that is still the case here.

Similarly to the last album, it opens with a short instrumental. What is different though is that they seem to have learned how to really play with your emotions, lifting your spirits with the rocking "Stand In Silence", mellowing you out with the beautiful "Witch's Web", and bringing a smile to your face with the jaunty "Eight Days of Hell". Then you get 'epic' tracks like "Life" that take you on an emotional rollercoaster. The most important difference though is that they manage to do all this without boring the pants off you.

For me, it's a much better album overall than "Worlds Apart". It's more emotive, less quirky and just hangs together better. Give it a chance, I think this one is going to be a real grower.

Of course, if you are into testosterone fuelled fist-pumpers, give this one a miss, you won't get a lot out of it.

This is a bit of a departure from TOD's usual style, as it's generally more tune friendly, but they've tackled the change incredibly well, and probably made themselves more accessible in doing so.

The album's highlights are the opening Stand in Silence, excellent Wasted State of Mind and closing epic Sunken Dreams, tracks which really are up there with their best.

Not quite as good as their near perfect offering 'Madonna' but TOD do keep going from strength to strength, and this is no exception. Should win them some new fans whilst not leaving fans of their earlier work behind.

Looking forward to seeing them live in 2007.

I have five TOD albums and this one, their 5th is nothing short of a masterpiece and i don't say that lightly either. I am 45yrs old and have a respectable collection of vinyl, tapes, CDs and mds spanning 5 decades so i think i know what i'm talking about teenies!
The thing i've always loved about Trail Of Dead is their amazing ability to tell a story in an album; Source Tags, Worlds Apart, Century Of Self and Madonna were very conceptual pieces. Here they have trimmed down all their exuberances for a more streamlined approach and its worked beautifully.
Standing In Silence comes in with a great rock riff and is probably the most direct thing they've done. Great to hear some female vocals too. It just rocks!
Wasted State Of Mind is almost a take on Pink Floyd's Time with its ticking like rhythms and pulsating melody lines which are about as catchy as they get without descending into Queen like overkill.
Golden Heart Mountain Top Queen Directory could almost be a Guided By Voices tune with its laid back charm and soulful delivery.
The title track is another epic but its less complicated and much more direct as much on here.
Eight Days of Hell tells the tale of touring in Europe and is a splendid example of how this band can play straight fwd rock n roll with humour.
Witches Web is just a gorgeous retrospective number with another female vocal. Interesting Keeley's girlfriend used to sing and play guitar when they started out, they need to do more of this!
Sunken Dreams is a great way to close this, their most direct album and is a punctuation mark in every sense.
Enjoy it because it stands out as unique in their collection.

This is not the trail of dead that gave us Source Tags... and Madonna.

But so what?! This is a big album, with some great tracks. Maybe not as consistent as World's Apart, but the filler is never awful.

You've got to respect a band that will develop the way that ToD have, they've moved on from what made their name and lyrically this is one of their most revealling personal albums. All lot of it relates to the 'failures' of World's Apart and their relationship with each other, fans and their record label.

Not your first choice for ToD albums, but a worthwhile addition to the collection.

Erm, well. Definitely not their best or even close but not through a lack of trying. In fact, I'd probably argue that they have put more effort than usual in here and maybe that is the problem. Having read their interviews over the years on pitchfork and elsewhere it seems like they are having a tough time of it musically and personally.

So while this is a poor album I just can't agree with the comment that they have sold out. That just doesnt fit with a band like TOD. Similarly I cannot agree with the 4 and 5 star comments - this is different yes, but it's just not that good.

There are a couple of stand out tracks, but nothing worth getting excited about like with their previous albums (yes, even worlds apart which i thought was harshly treated! I particularly like Wasted State of Mind due to its freshness and uniqueness of sound (which i think are the ingredients of their other good stuff).

Man, I'm starting to ramble now - but check out this album only after youve checked out the others. It IS quite different and a lot more palatable to the masses, but thats not always a bad thing (it's just not for me).

And indeed - do see them live.
