Let me just start by saying this is one of the best albums I've ever bought.
I have to admit to never having heard of Poison the Well before I bought this, I bought it on the strength of a magazine review, and having heard just the opening track. But in no way was I disappointed. The main thing that makes this album so outstanding is the way it can switch from mild, melodic tunefulness to hardcore heaviness in a matter of seconds, always grabbing your attention. A prime example of this is track 4, 'Meeting Again For The First Time', which takes the classic quiet/loud dynamic and stretches it to the max. The cryptic lyrics add a hint of mystery also, working out what each song is about is part of the fun.
This album continues to get better everytime I listen to it, which is frequently. Track highlights include 'The Realist', 'Pleasant Bullet' and 'Apathy is a Cold Body'.
I'm not even entirely sure what I like about this so much. I suggest you buy it and find out for yourself.

Where the hell did this come from?! Poison The Well were a good band steadily rising to the top of the modern hardcore table with their blend of breakdowns and emotive bellows (imagine a wounded bison and you sort of get the picture). Then they released this.

Despite some melodies on previous release Tear From The Red I don't think anyone could have foreseen just how far Jeff Moreira had come vocally when You Come Before You hit. The effortless transition from leonine roar to soaring melody along with some traditional hardcore gravelly throat showed a vocal dexterity hitherto hidden.

It wasn't just Moreira who raised his game with You Come Before You. The whole band, led by principal song writer and lead guitarist Ryan Primack, brought new variation to the music so that, whilst previous releases could feel a little one dimensional at times, You Come Before You was an aural feast. The whole sound is quite percussive but avoids relying on breakdowns to achieve this whilst accommodating some high end noodling and ambient sounds from the guitarists.

There is not one bad track on this album, quality song after quality song is delivered with slow burners like Apathy Is A Cold Body and hardcore ragers like Zombies Are Good For Your Health showcasing a, seemingly newfound, love of diversity that we've seen continued in later releases.

Picking up the modern hardcore rule book and tearing it to shreds before setting it on fire and using the ash for guidance, You Come Before You still stands out as a milestone in the continued evolution of hardcore over the 21st century

9.5/10

There's no need to justify opinions by how much hardcore or 'old' poison the well that one listens to. It doesn't matter that they haven't created an album like the opposite of december. And I don't care about this being a major label release etc because I don't think that constitutes 'selling out' per se. What this is, is a monumental album regardless of previous albums, the trappings of the hardcore genre or major label ties. The sheer weight of sound made by the guitars is incredible, the bass provides a huge backbone and the drumming is frankly superb. It's almost as if these songs weren't created by discernible instruments, instead there are just huge colossal waves of sound. The way each track blends to the next, often with a beautiful musical refrain, is seamless. And the vocals and screaming are so powerful without ever feeling convoluted. Like many good albums, the whole set just feels like a huge journey containing some of the most overwhelmingly beautiful music created in any genre. I'm not normally prone to hyperbole but this album has dug itself so deep into my consciousness that I love every last second of it. Despite opinions like this being considered blasphemy by overzealous fans, this is my favourite of all of poison the well's albums because to me it feels the most complete and musically moving. Despite loving so many different bands and kinds of music (one motto-doesn't matter what it is, if I like it, I like it, if I don't, I don't. I will try anything), this album would easily sit in my all time top 10. I'd find it very difficult to even choose a top 10 but rest assured this one is there. A stunning, powerful album regardless.

But still I listen to this album? I don't think i can stop. That's something that doesn't happen often with me, as I find myself constantly picking albums apart. 'Poison The Well' didn't seem bothered with that though, they just kept surprising me with every new track on this album.

Let's just say, like another reviewer below myself, that this is possibly the best album I have bought in a long time. The drumming is less frantic than 'December', but it fits every song, and sometimes that is more importing than showing off(dare I say it). All of the song writing on this album is so...effortless! There are no cringing spoken lyrics, as in some parts of 'December', just soaring emotional highs, deafening, tortured screams, and heartfelt situations and subject matter. This album flows from one track to another in order so well that there is no point of shuffle, because as one song ends, you will be in waiting for the next despite any change in mood, so fluently constructed as it is.

But then each song is different. Repetative 'You Come Before You' is not. At all. And let me finish by saying that the diversity of this album could encompass my entire life. Fits of rage and sheer depression are balenced with calm melodies, surprising humour (strange as that sounds), and sections that make me smile. As simple as that. Sometimes my eyes close, my stomach churns, my lips snarl, but I feel complete, as one chords sweeps inexoriably into the unsuspected next, and the truthful and honest lyrics make me look at myself in recognition as my throat clenches.

In short: Head Banging Mosh-fests, Almost acoustic, poetic vocals, and everything else a piece of music could encompass.

That might all sound a bit ridiculous but, it's...not. Just listen to it.
