RISE AGAINST-END GAME
Top Customer Reviews
There aren't really any stand out tracks, every song is a cracker, really catchy and sing-along (you won't stop joining-in!), but songs like "Help Is On The Way", "Architects", "Disparity By Design", "Satellite" and "Endgame" could all be very strong, decent single material.
You can hear small Bad Religion sounds in a few songs; this is definitely not a bad thing when Bad Religion are as good as they are. Rise Against, I feel, are definitely amongst the freshest and most-catchy Punk bands around at the moment (up-there with NOFX) so this album is a must for all punk fans.
Great impressive album 9/10
This being thier 6th album the band has changed a lot over the years.
What I can say is Rise Against have always had a strong message and in this album the message seems even bigger and darker than it ever has been.
A strange twist to this album is that, rather than being mixed up with crazy ambitious songs which can cause the song's meaning to get lost, it focuses on emotion and lyrical content. The vocals seem louder and the solid rock and punk sound of the album really pushes this out.
This album is artists expressing their message in a way they never have before.
Best tracks to me are Midnight Hands, Survivor Guilt, Broken Mirrors, Disparity by Design and Wait for me.
If you like rock or metal I definitely recommend this album, though it may be worth listening to some songs first so you really know what you are buying.
It's strange, I have a friend who's a fan of R&B, and then he liked over half of this metal album, so I believe that there is something here for everyone.
I wouldn't recommend this over some of the band's previous albums such as The sufferer and the witness, though if you want to look into this band their second, fourth or sixth albums are a good place to start.
The lyrics are clunky, often repetitive and focus much more upon being anthemic rather than focusing on the passion behind the messages that Tim Mcilrath and co obviously believe so strongly in. Songs such as Make It Stop, This Is Letting Go and Wait For Me are average at best focusing strongly upon the catchiness of the tune often with clunky sounding lyrics: "She asked why, I said I don't know why, I just know". This is rather disappointing from what is a band that rarely produces a song that I will not listen to on repeat.
Another grating issue that I have with this album in particular is the backing vocals. Effectively all of the songs have "WooooOOOOoooooOOOoooo" in the background, providing no extra affect to the song at all. Matt Skiba, of Alkaline Trio, is credited on Midnight Hands and I was excited to hear Matt and Tim combine their vocals, yet there is nothing but "woooOOooooOooo".
All in all a solid but unspectacular 6th album from Rise Against. I hope next time they return more to their punk roots, shorten some of the songs, and get rid of the annoying backing vocals!
It's been played on the stereo at work at lot and it only took a couple of listens for me to get into it - it's pretty easily listening. Whether you're a fan of the band or not, you won't regret checking it out.
