5.0 out of 5 stars Top album 7 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sassafras really grabbed my attention, love the vocal sound and the way he changes from high screaming to low growling. Recommended for fans of One More Victim.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 Disc instead of the 2 Disc 25 Aug 2009
By A. Read
Format:Audio CD
Let me first off say the actual album is easily a 4/5

Twice I have ordered this the 2 Disc Limited Edition and on both times I received the 1 Disc version, so in my guess they either labelled it wrong or don't actual have the 2 Disc version

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album 10 Sep 2010
By Chunky Drummer - Published on Amazon.com
I first started listening to these guys after I saw them live with Killswitch Engage. I have to say at first I was kind of thrown off with their style. It was a little to brutal for me. I'm in to heavy stuff but, it was just too much I guess. Anyways I kept on listening and this album grew on me so much. An ENTIRE album that I used to think "meh", I now have 100% respect for. Everything from beginning to end.

As a drummer I have infinite respect for the musicianship in this band. They are all incredible with their instruments. I can't say much more except go get yourself a copy. My opinion, this is their best work. Ben Has a Kid = the song that got me hooked. Sassafras, Assistant to the Regional Manager, I Hate Buffering are all AMAZING as well. As far as lyrics go they are obviously very religious. But don't let that push you away. At first I didn't like bands that were labeled "Christian". But I think most Christian metal bands deliver a message that can appeal to a wide range of people/religions. And not all of their songs are about religion. Take "I Hate Buffering". Well I'll let you look up the lyrics. But he basically talks about how so many bands don't have a message, they just want to get rich and write songs that don't mean anything. Anyway, check these guys out, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Christian Metal rises to a higher level! 20 April 2010
By Rey Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
This band has gone from good to great! The album Plagues was an amazing album with the hit single "Hey John, What's Your Name Again? Even the other songs that are not singles are amazing. Mike uses low growls and high pitched shrieks and Jeremy really goes all out with his amazing melodic vocals. The guitars are really getting a lot better and coming up with catchy riffs and breakdowns! I'd say the only disappoinment that I would say is its better to listen to them in the studio than live. I highly reccomend these songs

Big Wiggly Style
Danger: Wildman
Dez Moines
Louder Than Thunder (Its not metal but its still good)

.......if your a fan ull love this album :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Le Gasp! A reviewer not giving it 5 stars!? Blasphemy! 10 May 2009
By Map_Of_The_Problematique - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, so I'm aware that I'm the first reviewer to NOT give this album 5 stars. Let the poorly typed lashings begin.

The Devil Wears Prada has taken the music world by storm over these past few years. It's easy to see why a lot of listeners would find them so appealing. A slew of breakdowns, harsh and unpolished screaming mixed with cleans that would make Craig Owens sob, semi-predictable song structures and an amazingly engaging live show. Sounds to me like you've got all the workings to make all the girl-pants wearing, scene kid semi-hipsters salivate. That seems to be TDWPs' main weakness, though. They have all of the appeal, yet lack a certain amount of originality and artistic integrity. But I will tell you this...TDWP does what they do better than about 98% of the others. Now on to the album.

'With Roots Above...' opens with an amazing little slice of metal bliss. 'Sassafras' is possibly the most intense and immediately rewarding track on the album. Right from the beginning you feel the emotion that lead vocalist Mike Hranica is spewing with every word. Jeremy also has some of his best vocals from the album located on this song. There are some sick runs from bassist Andy Trick here, as well. Great track, through and through. But once you reach 'I hate Buffering' you begin to realize something very disappointing. Jeremy seems to have lost the majority of his power. On 'Dear Love' and 'Plagues' it seemed that every time he sang...there was a purpose. His voice soared. It was full of longing and emotion. Now, for the most part, it just seems forced and overly produced. The obvious exceptions though, would be 'Sassafras', 'Dez Moines' and 'Ben Has A Kid'.

Now that I have mentioned a flaw, it's time again for one of the good things about the album. James Baney seems to be working the synth into the songs way more fluently. Sure he did amazingly well in 'Dogscangrowbeardsallover' and 'Nickels Is Money, Too'...but aside from those tracks and a few places in a couple of others, he almost went un-noticed. He is actually the driving force of quite a few song on this release. Mainly the powerhouse of a track known as 'Gimme Half'. His contributions to 'Ben Has A Kid' are also very evident, and helped make it the highlight track of the entire album. I think it should be noted as well that the opening of 'Big Wiggly Style' is one of the coolest intros to a song I have ever heard. Too bad the rest of the song isn't as engaging. Oh well.

Now onto another complaint. A lot of people are saying that TDWP have 'grown tremendously' as artists with this new album. I would have to fully disagree with this statement. Since when is incorporating a 'verse-chorus-verse-chorus' song structure into half of the songs considered 'growth'? Sure 'Reptar...' had a chorus...but it was one of the weaker songs from 'Plagues' for that reason, if you ask me. Now I'm not saying that predictable song structures are BAD, by any means. And it works very well (again) for 'Ben Has A Kid', but flops like none other for songs like 'Danger: Wildman' and 'Wapakalypse', the two weakest songs from the album. It is nice to see a 'slow' song incorporated into the mix, though. 'Louder Than Thunder' is a nice little gem. Although it's nothing revolutionary, it's still quite enjoyable.

Another small annoyance was 'Lord Xenu'. It's not a BAD song, it's just the wrong choice for an album closer. TDWP have always crafted beautiful and powerful closing tracks. This one just seems under-thought and lacks a lot of power. Honestly I think that 'Assistant To The Regional Manager' (another big highlight) would have been an AMAZING ending track. But whatever. I'm sure the boys of TDWP had a reason for making "Lord Xenu' the ending song. It just doesn't work for me.

For my final thoughts, I would like to say that I'm still a fan of TDWP and their live shows will always make up for anything they do...I'm just not the BIGGEST fan of this particular release. They know what their die-hard fans want, though, and they have delivered just that. I know a lot of people will praise this album as TDWPs' best, simply because its lack of originality and for sticking to the same formula. Maybe if they would have left the roots below a little bit longer it would have grown a stronger album.
Eat it up. Because I know you will. No matter what I say.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil Wears Prada- With Roots Above And Branches Below [crobsession.tumblr.com] 22 Aug 2009
By Christian Rock OBSESSION - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Last year on the Warped Tour, the Dayton, OH, Underoath/Still Remains influenced metal band, The Devil Wears Prada, caught many eyes and ears. This year they'll do it again, only this time with songs from their newest album, With Roots Above And Branches Below. They are sure to catch even more eyes and ears (as they did mine with their song "Hey John, What's Your Name Again?" from their last album) with this heavy new material.

The album explodes into existence through the song, "Sassafras", staying true to TDWP form. The keyboard in this song give it a more melodic feel than an average metal song, and Jeremy DePoyster's crystal-clear vocals near the end add to that feel. "I Hate Buffering", the album's next track, has a great lead guitar that keeps it heavy throughout the song's three minutes, and as with any song with Jeremy's vocals, it has that extra touch that gives it near perfection. Songs like "Dez Moines", "Danger: Wildman", and "Ben Has A Kid" display Jeremy's vocals more, while keeping the song hard. "Danger: Wildman" has a really sick guitar part in the song, but before the end the song it slows down shortly and there is a completely amazing violin piece, shortly followed by DePoyster declaring "All of love can be traced to a Maker". It's very refreshing to know a band can be unbelievably heavy and be rising in popularity and still acknowledge God in their music. The next song, "Ben Has A Kid", has the same kind of lyrics when they say "Beyond this world is worth dying for." "Louder Than Thunder" proved me wrong when I thought TDWP could never be soft. I was very wrong. "Louder Than Thunder" is not only the album's softest song, but there is zero screaming, and there is nothing hard about the song. The piano is very eerily beautiful and matches the lyrics very well. It's definitely a big difference for TDWP, let alone this album.

So, The Devil Wears Prada has done it again. It would be nice if they could maybe balance out the screaming and the singing a little bit more. Mike Hranica's powerful screaming and the addition of "Louder Than Thunder" proves that TDWP has matured a lot since their sophomore album. This will be a very successful year for them as they set out on the Warped Tour once again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Follow Up 17 July 2009
By Elizabeth Wonderham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes TDWP release their new album With Roots Above and Branches Below. I couldn't wait for TDWP to release another album. I like Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord more than Plagues. I heard about TDWP in early 2007. You need to see TDWP live in concert. TDWP performs a great live show. With Roots Above and Branches Below is a great follow up after Plagues. With Roots Above and Branches Below is not all the same as Plagues, but it's in a better direction. With Roots Above and Branches Below debuted on the Billboard 200 at 11 with 31,000 copies sold, that is impressive for what kind of music TDWP makes. I enjoy listening to With Above and Branches Below just as much as their previous albums.
My favorite songs on With Roots Above and Branches Below are:
1. Dez Moines
2. Big Wiggly Style
3. Wapakalypse
4. Gimme Half
5. Lord Xenu
