Format: Audio CD
The best thing about being a fan of this whole punk/emo/hardcore thing is the amount of new and differing bands that the scene produces. In 'Diagram for Healing' No Motiv offer 13 slices of well-written emotive punky rock. Opening gambit 'Celebrate' offers the listener a speedy adrenaline rush of minor chords and a chorus that defies you not to sing along. As with most of this album this song will not leave your head for days. However, No Motiv are not afraid to slow things down a little and experiment with more relaxed tempos and ringing guitar chords. My only gripe is that the last few tracks do not live up to the high standard set by the rest of the album. The closest similarities to this band I can think of would be Sensefield (although this album is not quite up there with my fave emo album, Sensefields' 'building'!) or a slightly more downbeat version of The Ataris, but anyone into this whole emo scene or anyone needing a brief respite from the 100mph beats of new punk, will enjoy this album.

HASH(0x905a40c0) out of 5 stars ... wondered who in the heck was throwing down such sweet background music for the Playstation 2 surfing video game 7 May 2016

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For years I wondered who in the heck was throwing down such sweet background music for the Playstation 2 surfing video game. Now I know. No Motiv is great music for getting in the zone, even if the zone involves an antiquated Playstation, an old surfing video game, and a six pack of beer.

HASH(0x90734c3c) out of 5 stars Their best cd - and one of the best. EVER. (Yes, EVER!). 30 Jan. 2004
By TavianCainBass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Diagram For Healing" is No Motiv's best cd, by far. While "...And the Sadness Prevails" is great and "Daylight Breaking", their newest release, is also excellent, there is no doubt that this cd finds them at their apex. Every song is so undeniably catchy: the lyrics, the instrumentation - it is all perfect. The album runs the gamut from hardcore punk ("Going Numb") to pop-punk ("Throw in the Towel" and "Get a life") to rock ("Celebrate") to pure emo ("Give me Strength" and the best song on the cd, "Born again").
This album is much less heavy than their first hardcore punk releases: "Cynical" and "Scarred", which are nearly impossible to find anyway. It is the natural progression from "...And the Sadness Prevails". It is the perfect balance between melody and hardcore rock. "Daylight Breaking" is great, but not as melodic or as singable or listenable as this.
To put it simply, you won't be able to take this out of your cd player. One of the 10 best albums I have ever heard (and this is coming from someone who considers U2 and Rush among his favorite bands, not some 12-year-old who has never heard anything other than Blink-182).

HASH(0x90734b10) out of 5 stars Diagram for Rockin' 27 Jun. 2001
By Nicola Monat-Jacobs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It would be easy, upon hearing their catchy chords and spur-of-the-moment lyrics, to dump No Motiv in the popular pop-punk category and be done with it. But, such a label ignores the depth of the band's sophomore effort, `Diagram for Healing'. At first glance, the album may seem predictably poppy, but more careful listening reveals a deeper, darker, and more brooding feel. Tracks like "Broken and Burned" have the distinctive delicate-yet-rockin' sound of Jimmy Eat World. In fact, a Jimmy Eat World-esque feel permeates the album, underlying the traditional pop-rock. The heartfelt lyrics reveal regret, resignation and hope for the future. Trevor Keith of Face to Face produced the album, and you can hear it. The album as a whole underscores No Motiv's growing confidence as a band, and a new level of maturity for their music. Jeremy Palaszewski, leader singer, speaks from the heart when he says, in "To The Roots", "Yeah, we're gonna rock and roll..."

HASH(0x9052c5a0) out of 5 stars Not a thing to complain about. 29 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is actually the first album I ever bought by No Motiv, and I was immediately hooked. The way the lead vocalist turns his voice is awesome and gives their music a distinct sound. I first heard "Give Me Strenghth" on a Vagrant comp., so that one will always be one of my favorites. I also love the darker sounds on "Broken and Burned" and "Saviour." Great buy, every song on here leaves you amazed. Nice packaging, too. If you've never listened to them, buy this album first and then move on to their older stuff.

HASH(0x929826a0) out of 5 stars THESE GUYS ROCK! 11 Mar. 2002
By Quincy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw these guys recently at the Troubadour and they are awesome. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. They really should be bigger than they really are. They have beautiful lyrics with great music. This is what emo and indie rock should be all about. All the songs are good but all time favorites: Break it down, only you, Get a new life..all of them man. I'm going to see them with Fenix TX too! Can't wait. BUY the CD. you won't regret it. I've listened to this whole thing through like a million times.
