A little bit of a grower, but boy does it grow!

In short, this is a fantastic return for Oh, Sleeper. At first, I wasn't sure how much I liked the album. Whenever a band hasn't made an album for awhile, I always build up ideas of what it should and will sound like when they do come back, and sometimes it doesn't always mesh with what I was hoping for. There is a little more singing on this, which ultimately works really well. Honestly, everyone is in top form here and after a couple of listens that really started to set in. So, now that it has after a month, I feel like it's right up there with my favorite Oh, Sleeper. Also, if you're interested in the lyrics, look up the podcast Micah did with the Labeled podcast for a fantastic talk through of the themes and behind the scenes of the band which lend even more weight to what is being sung about in these songs. Really top notch. Will be enjoying this for awhile and trying to patiently wait until they release another album. So glad they are back!!!

Finally! A true metalcore giant returns!

After a painfully long hiatus one of the greats of the 2000s has returned! While this record doesn't top SOTM, I think it is stronger than COF and it shows the band hasn't lost sight of what made them great. The two Shane-fronted tracks are kinda tedious (I'm not Christian so I'm in it for the music not the message, and the slow song was already perfected in "Reveries Of Flight") but they don't ruin the overall listening experience. I apologize for pointing out the negative, but those kinds of songs tend to sound all too formulaic and it seems sometimes like bands feel they are required to include them. That said, I am so excited they're back on Solid State (what was the label thinking, dropping a magnificent band like this?) and I hope they can keep the relationship strong for years to come. My favorite track on this new album is "Mutinous." I can't wait to see them live in a few weeks with Emery! We are the Archers!!!
