During the first 30 seconds that you're listening to Hot Damn (the band's previous outing), you'd immediately hear the unusual melody line and rabid screeching of guitar and not understand how anyone could want this music and actually enjoy it. Yet it's those very elements which make it enjoyable to listen to. There's always a certain amount of comfort you take from the discordance, and judging by the content of that album, the curious onlooker would conclude that Hot Damn was very comforting indeed.
Now with Gutter Phenomenon, Every Time I Die have improved. The band have focused more on song writing this time, and have created better crafted and even more addictive, beastly chunks of genetically modified rock and roll. Unlike most bands who compromise one area of their sound to improve another, Every Time I Die don't. All the elements which made them a great band are still intact, alive and well. Whilst the new improved parts of their approach are allowed to live and breathe next to the old.
If you liked Hot Damn, then you'll find Gutter Phenomenon to be an even better use of £10 than the prior was. If you've never heard Hot Damn, go for Gutter Phenomenon first and then work your way backwards. Either way, you can't go wrong with Every Time I Die.
With guest vocals from Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw) Every time I die have taken a huge step up from the album "Hot Damn" by jumping on what seems to be the band wagon of producing a more melodic side to a new release. However, the band still manages to display attention grabbing riffs and breakdowns as displayed in previous releases.
Keith's new vocal style would be in favour of any fans of the older album "Last night in town" and the lyrics still prove to be a strong point of this band.
One thing that struck me immediately about "Gutter Phenomenon" is the lack of 'catchy' phrases. By this, I mean the type that everyone can sing along to at the shows. For example "Go get your gun, because God won't show" and "Drag the lake, you'll find it full of love". Phrases that stand out from a song, that you can define what song it is from hearing one line. It's lacking that 'sing-a-long' feel to it that previous albums "Hot Damn" and "Last Night in Town" had. (Hence rating of 4)
Saying this, to be honest, this album has not left my CD player after getting my hands on it. It's another amazing album, by an amazing band. - A must have for any fan.
The positives that came out of this are many, whereas the negatives are few.
This album is a turning point, which captures some of the raw traits of the earlier 2 albums but (as history shows) is the beginning of an arguably more intelligent style of songwriting. I felt that LNIT is generally too chaotic for its own good, with the exception of a couple of tracks; Hot Damn refined this hugely but is still lacking somewhere.
Enter Gutter. The opening song is one of their very best and the album doesn't dip much in quality right through to the superb end track. There are not many albums I own that require no skipping of tracks; this is one of them.
The only negative is the production. Whilst better produced than Hot Damn, it's not entirely right for ETID. For other bands, perhaps, but ETID themselves clearly think this too, as no other album of theirs is produced in a similar manner. The vox are choked and the bottom end is too heavily compressed, resulting in a thinner overall sound. When you compare Gutter production next to any of their other albums, it's hard to prefer it, but in isolation, it's arguably a great sound.
If you're new to ETID and pondering on which album to start with, this is a safe choice. This band doesn't really make 'bad' albums but of the set, this has the fewest flaws in my opinion.
