5.0 out of 5 stars Left with no words..., 13 July 2006
This review is from: You Come Before You (Audio CD)
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.
