5.0 out of 5 stars Touche Amore at their best yet
If you are having any hesitation to buy this album let me reassure assure and simply say buy it!

Touche Amore are part of a select few bands within the hardcore scene who I genuinely respect. Rather then rehashing the same musical territory, that all other bands have already done for the last 30 years this album shows some real imagination. You won't find...

1.0 out of 5 stars Just atrocious
This is without doubt the most disappointing purchase I've made in a long long time. After buying 'Parting the sea' I saw enough potential to see what else this band had to offer.
There is not one single hardcore song on this album. There is not one single memorable song on this album. This album is weak, forgetful, irritating rubbish.
Musically it's just about...

5.0 out of 5 stars Touche Amore at their best yet, 17 Jan 2014

If you are having any hesitation to buy this album let me reassure assure and simply say buy it!

Touche Amore are part of a select few bands within the hardcore scene who I genuinely respect. Rather then rehashing the same musical territory, that all other bands have already done for the last 30 years this album shows some real imagination. You won't find endless breakdowns - Riff - Chorus repeat on this album.

Instead of that you will find a fantastic musical intensity that keeps the frenetic pacing of hardcore music, without falling into all the usual pitfalls. Variation is the hallmark of the album, beautiful guitar tones and drums that stand out for their aggression.

For me the stand out feature of this album is the lyrical content. Jeremy Bolm proving (yet again) you can have emotionally charged and powerful lyrics without talking about your last break up or unrequited love. He treads that tenuous and tragically underused ground of mature lyrical content. Exploring numerous themes and issues at a near frantic pace.

For, while these songs are longer then their previous albums most sit between the 2-3 minute mark and the whole album comes in at 29:35 minutes. Personally I enjoy the increased song duration, the fault of I have had previous is that; by the time you get really into a song it is over!

While this band are often put into the same category as: La Dispute, Defeater and Pianos Become the Teeth. I can hear lot of much older bands in their music: Indian Summer, Funeral Diner, City and Caterpillar and The Saddest Landscape. The older screamo bands, before that word came to mean Scene kids playing synth and singing about heartbreak.

If you are a fan of: Punk, Hardcore, Screamo then I strongly recommend you buy this album. If you are still unsure go listen to: Just Exist and Harbor on YouTube then comeback and click on buy!

Definitely one of my favourite releases of 2013. The album is punchy and very well written. Possibly their best album yet.

There is not one single hardcore song on this album. There is not one single memorable song on this album. This album is weak, forgetful, irritating rubbish.
Musically it's just about OK but completely forgetful due to the fact that there seems to be no evidence of anyone having actually written any actual songs; just random jingly jangly guitar progressions. No punch, no riff, no energy. Technically OK for just a bunch of people jamming some random ideas but that's as far as it goes for me.
Worst of all is the singing. This guy just screams in persistent annoying monotone over every song.
-
So to summarise: No good songs, utterly irritating monotone screaming, weak forgetful nonsense.
This band should just give up immediately.
