Touche Amore have finally returned with their second full length, a 21 minute epic and instantly classic record. While it feels almost like a full on hardcore assult in places, and then a soft piano bar in others, the intensity cannot be shaken. The band are experimenting with their sound if the slowness of the previous la dispute 7" is anything to go by. There is so much to creating a dark and emotive album and making it work without sinking into self serving BS. Here the balance of self projecting lyrics, the heavyness vs the fast or steady pace of the music it all swallows you up. There are a lot of clever guitar riffs involved here making this record really stand out. Buy it you'll consider it a classic from one of punk/hardcores yet to be greats!
