1.0 out of 5 stars NOT easy to read!, 7 Aug 2010
How a previous reviewer can say this is easy to read is beyond me. The way the book is written is awful, it doesn't flow, it doesn't make sense and it repeats the same lines over and over. After 20 pages I think I am going to give up and look for another book on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good album!!!, 8 Oct 2008
This review is from: This Is A Fix (Audio CD)
I wont lie to you, I bought their first album and totally hated it.
I love this album however, and really felt I should write a review upon seeing the unfair average rating this has received so far.
The guy that did the ridiculous screaming on the first album has gone - and so has the rubbish song writing.
I am not the kind of person who judges music by lyrics (unless they are glaringly awful like 'I am a mountain, I am the sea'), so maybe I am wrong in saying that the lyrics on this album are totally inoffensive. I am sure I am not wrong in saying that this album is jam packed with well written, catchy, melodic rock songs that you wont want to skip.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible lyrics, 18 July 2008
This review is from: The Crusade (Audio CD)
I was never a massive Trivium fan, but thought that Ascendancy was a very good album.
I bought this one as I also kinda liked the first two singles, which looking back was very much in a pop music sense, rather than music to take seriously and really get into.
I really can't stress enough how awful the lyrics are on this album. I found them quite embarassing, the kind of music you wouldn't want anyone else to hear you listening to. Lyrics like 'for you honour, you will slaughter, every one of your daughters' and 'a coffin made of your deceptions' are all too much for me to bear. Not to mention the track 'This World Can't Tear Us Apart'. Cheesy.
The music itself is quite .... empty in comparison to Ascendancy too.
I give it two starts as some of the melodies are great, but apart from that, not good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy on the strength of Twisted Transistor!, 27 Sep 2006
I really have to say, I have given this album several chances, the latest being this week. And I am sorry, but it really just is NOT good. The only song I think is worth a listen is Twisted Transistor. And a good album, to me, should only have a maximum of two weak tracks.

There just seems to be no real tune in there. No memorable melody, no rhythm.

I cant exactly put my finger on it. If you think of the album 'Issues', think of how many amazingly catchy tracks there are on there! That album took me no time to get into.

In summary, the majority of tracks on here are weak.

I am off to buy Untouchables, I can think of 5 amazing tracks straight off from that album, an album I never got round to buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight up heavy rock 'n' roll ! Metal 'n' roll??, 25 Sep 2005
This review is from: In Distortion We Trust (Audio CD)
Never before have I heard such a thing. Straight up ROCK. How it should be. Heavy! Ok it has metally aspects, like the growly bit in 'In Distortion We Trust' which I LOVE! Great tune, and Losing the Game, Bad Hangover (my personal athem, thanx ladies, lol) and Play Me Hard. The heaviness of it could put it in the category of Metal. I can't think of anyone to compare them to, coz this is just special and unique.
Get it, they will rock your world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Sinner, 28 Feb 2005
This review is from: Desensitized (Audio CD)
The songs on this album are very well written, unlike Sinner, the bands first album. I hated the repetitive choruses. The music overall is heavier too, more 'metal'. There are some shouty vocals at times too, which adds passion, I think.
For those of you who haven't heard Sinner, if you like bands such as Soil and Godsmack as I do, you should go ahead and click 'Add to basket'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive choruses hard to get into, 21 Feb 2005
This review is from: Sinner (Audio CD)
The 2 stars are for the music, as this is my style.
It only gets 2 stars overall because of the awfully repetitive lyrics in the choruses. Examples:
'All over me, all over me, all over me, all over me'
'Pity me pity me, dont you pity me, pity me pity me, dont you pity me'
'Reminded of you, reminded of you, reminded of you, reminded.'
Get the picture yet?
If you were thinking of buying this, I would urge you to buy Desensitized instead, because it is amazing. That album gets 5 stars from me. Dont mean to speak ill of the dead mind you. R.I.P.

2.0 out of 5 stars Demo, 25 Jan 2005
This review is from: Bitter Part of Me (Audio CD)
To sum up - this sounds like demo. Very amateurish. At first, I thought, 'oh, I might like this'. But the more I listened, the more I learned of the lack of good production and experience from the band and found myself skipping tracks.
Listen to a bit of Godsmack or Soil, for example, then listen to this and you will see what I mean.
There is potential here - the tunes themselves are not bad - just badly put together.

2.0 out of 5 stars An album of self pity, 13 Jan 2005
This review is from: Becoming I (Audio CD)
If you are looking for something that could drag you to down to the lowest mood ever, get this. I kinda liked it at first because the music overall is quite good, memorable toons and riffs. But after a few listens I just felt slightly down. All of the lyrics are self pitying - boo hoo life's so hard, poor little me had a hard life, poor me has had my heart broken. A lot of heavy bands lyrics are dark, and it still lifts you up, this however, does not. It just doesn't work. Just sounds like a hormonal teenage boy reeling off what's on his mind.
