The Respect Issue Part 2
on 9 March 2011
It's an okay album, but no way near the brilliance of Goodbye to the Gallows and Felony. The album starts off very promising, Children of the Cybertron is a kickass intro, Area 64-66 has some great breakdowns, Dogs Get Put Down has to be the best song on this album, and Demons With Ryu is also pretty good.
However, after that, the album seems to die and slowly becomes the aural equivalent of drowning in tar. It kinda lacks momentum after Demons With Ryu and just sounds generic and boring. Another criticism would be that the lyrics aren't half as good as previous albums, even The Respect Issue.
It has some good tracks though. It's just not the brilliance Emmure promiced.
