EDITORS’ NOTES

On his second album with The Rattlesnakes, Frank Carter again proves a master of fusing melody and intensity. Modern Ruin doesn’t quite have the feral energy of 2015’s Blossom, but doesn’t miss it either—its punch is packed in lyrics that weave undaunted self-examination around political awareness. There’s greater musical adventure here too, particularly during the more austere moments. “Bluebelle” is a raw, beautiful blues lament, and “Neon Rust” recalls Suede with its wearied vocal and sinuous guitar.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Pretty Good!

A nice distance from the last album 'Blossom'. Where 'Blossom' was a very Gallows like album, 'Modern Ruin' strays away to take a more mature sound. 'Modern Ruin' has a few faster songs with a harder sound like 'Jackals' or 'God Is My Friend' where as the rest of the album consists of a hard but still calm take of Frank's earlier work such as his second band Pure Love. There's no tracks in this album that will sound like his Gallows years though the title track 'Modern Ruin' does come the clostest. Overall, I can definitly listen to the whole album maybe skipping 'Acid Rain' out of the twelve tracks on this album. A sure 9 out of 10

Good...

It's an honest effort, I really dig it, but it lacks the aggression Frank Carter is known for. I feel his artistic side really shows through on this one, which is awesome to see. I wish there were some heavier parts as we saw on the first album as well. That would have made this album really rock.
