A City By The Light Divided
A City By The Light Divided
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £4.34

4.0 out of 5 stars A stepping stone, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To some ends this was Thursday's make or break album. After the seminal 'Full Collapse' and interesting progression seen in 'War All the Time' it still remained to be seen if Thursday would be able to transcend and outlive their contemporaries. With 'A City by the Light Divided' they did this and more. The album, or city, is divided into two parts - a harsher beginning with a softer ending - by an instrumental track, cunningly named '...(the Light)'. It's definitely a much more savage beast than the band's previous two efforts in some places, although this is counterpointed nicely by the softer tracks towards the end of the record.
Ultimately, well worth a purchase and a worthy addition to what was a glittering career!

Purchased these bad boys for my sister's 21st birthday. Generally decent; a lot of unnecessary packaging, most of which was plastic and not recyclable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 23 Nov. 2012
Boring, incredibly self involved (even for this kind of book) and smug. Avoid this awful, awful man at all costs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs, 19 Oct. 2012
Even though I purchased my copy second hand for £10 I still resent even that expenditure. This book is a poorly written, poorly structured and overall insipid study aid for Public / Constitutional & Administrative Law. Wildly out of date and incredibly disorganised. Of all the text books I own this is easily the worst.
Avoid at all costs, there are far better textbooks dealing with the same area. Don't make the same mistake I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Debut Album From UK Hardcore Newcomers, 20 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Devotion (Audio CD)
Burn Down Rome's first mini album, "Faith In Liars, Faith In Thieves", was released to acclaim from many in the underground music industry. It was something new, a breath of fresh air in a scene over run with kids in tight trousers worrying too much about their hair. It combined the post rock sensibilites of bands like Explosions in the Sky with the post rock influenced hardcore of bands like Cult Of Luna. In "Faith In Liars..." they created a debut that would very hard to out do.

I feel in 'Devotion' they have managed to do this, beyond a shadow of doubt. The album opens with, the now almost compulsory, instrumental before charging into the relentless hardcore of 'Debauchery'', this however is hardcore with a twist, it contains various melodic and slowed down chances for the listener, and i'll bet the band, to take a breather and relax. The rest of the album is then set out from this point, it retains the post rock snesibilities of their mini album but introduces a raw hardcore element with vocalist Jake Cade screaming his lungs out. There's a second instrumental in the guise of 'Devotion' a stunning 4 and a half minute instrumental track that will leave listeners stunned.

A few fans were thrown off a bit when the tracks 'Apathy' and 'XO' were put onto the band's MySpace pagem fearing they'd changed style completely perhaps in hope of jumping on the hardcore bandwagon, but nothing could be further from the truth. This band has matured and progressed from their old style in a very successful and intriguiing way. Buy this album, these guys are going to be huge.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay!, 7 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Transmetropolitan (Audio CD)
There are some crucial tracks here. There are some crap tracks here. Overall the level of musicianship and the vocals make up for the crap tracks that appear, and the kind of over the top Ida Wave long song titles.

Tbh, i think WFAHM would have fared a lot better before the Dillinger Escape Plan copy cat bands came along =( So they're unlucky there

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Awesome!, 11 July 2007
This review is from: Ruin (Audio CD)
The difficult second album. Everyone's going to compare it to the first, and if it misses the mark - BANG! you're in trouble.
Thankfully Architects haven't missed the mark by any stretch of the imagination. Picking up where 'Nightmares' left off this is near brilliance. A vocalist change has left us with, in my opinion, a better vocal range (i did feel some vocals on their debut sounded a bit samey after a while). The SikTh-esque guitars are still there, giving perfect contrast to the bass and percussion excelllence...and when combined with the vocals...amazing!

I'd catch them live if i were you as well!

An album any band would be proud to release.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wouldnt bother personally, 21 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Take To The Skies (Audio CD)
When i heard their track 'Sorry You're Not A Winner' i thought it was pretty damn awesome tbh :D I'd heard similar stuff before, but it was pretty awesome. (if ironic around the bit where he sings 'pretantious' hehe)

Anyway, so i borrowed the album off someone (didnt want to buy it haviung only heard one song). And i have to say, i wouldn't buy it if you paid me.

The first thing to stand out is how samey it all is....it's like they took one song and just remixed it a load of times. Then there are the god awful ballad type tracks...which is pretty inexcusable even in this day and age =(

I'm still going to see them live haha. But i wouldnt buy the record. It's been done before and a lot better too.

I'd save your money and buy something by HORSE the band instead. They did it before these guys,. and they did it a lot better.

Oh yeah, and if you like your music to have good lyrics...don't even think about tapping this shizz.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, 6 Jun. 2007
This review is from: First Blood (Audio CD)
Having been 'into' :( for over a year now, the idea of them releasing an EP was proper exciting!

But, when all i got was this i was a little upset :S

Two of the songs ('Hunt Hunters', 'Heartache Of Soccer Moms') have of course been around for a while - and i was glad to see them there!

'Fake Blood' was pretty good...but i was really unsure with the newer songs ('Pre-Emoticons' and 'Codes') Mart told me the new stuff was like old :( with U2...and to be honest, i don't like the sound of it at all :?

It just doesn't have the same 'coolness', or so to speak, of their older myspace stuff.

If i were you i'd buy something by HORSE the band instead...much the same just a bit heavier.

But three stars...cos they still kick the crap out of Enter Shikari anyday ;) xo

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic EP, 25 May 2007
This review is from: Legend (Audio CD)
The first time i heard AW i knew i was on to something special.

They're the exact opposite of the 'metalcore' label that most people seem to have burdened them with.

They combine elements of Deathcore, Melodic Death Metal and even Black Metal to an extent. I suppose you could call them The Black Dahlia Murder meets Dimmu Borgir meets the Gothenburg sound (fitting seeing as they have ex-Black Dahlia Murder drummer among their ranks...well...did). The vocals are very much black metal shrieks to be honest...but that isn't a bad thing at all...in fact - it's amazing! Only one song has a, MINOR,use of melodic vocals and there's also the occasional death metal grunt on the EP too!

The bad news? They split up not long ago :(

So i guess we'll never get to hear what their debut album would've sounded like. But if this EP is anything to go by - i'll bet it would have been bloody amazing!
