EDITORS’ NOTES

Although Transit Blues’ opening salvo, "Praise Poison," is all pummeling metalcore and whiplash guitars, for the most part The Devil Wears Prada’s sixth album sees them favoring bold sonic departures. Electronic programming whirrs through "The Condition," while "To the Key of Evergreen" tempers snarling licks with spacious post-rock that blooms like a sunrise. Mike Hranica's incisive lyrics allude to William Faulkner and Simone de Beauvoir while covering everyday life's nagging preoccupations—restlessness, longing, anxiety—as well as weightier issues, such as gun control.

Another great album by TDWP

They never disappoint, I expect nothing less than greatness from this album. Daughter was a banger. I can't wait to hear the rest.

I’m confused...

As a really big TDWP fan, I have been super pumped for this release ever since it was announced. I just finished listening to the whole album from start to finish and I’m honestly really confused. I feel like I haven’t heard the whole album—its almost like every song came across to me as a preview. The songs seem to lack structure and are hard to follow. Interludes and bridges seem to build up and build up only to die out and start again. The lack of breakdowns in this album is also very shocking and disappointing to me considering TDWP’s rich history of crushing, mind-blowing breakdowns. I totally understand that bands mature and change over the years, but if they stray away from the simple foundations that make them great it just doesn’t seem to work well. Don’t get me wrong, this is a really cool album! It just doesn’t feel like a TDWP album. I feel like I can’t be the only one who feels this way...

Hypocrites

I am a huge TDWP fan and have been for years. I love their deep lyrical content in albums past but this is garbage, especially when I'm being fed political garbage. I find it ironic and a bit hypocritical that in Zombie EP there are sounds of gunfire, and lyrics like "healthy back-stock of ammunition." And now with Lock and Load?!?! Are you serious? This song must have been written by/for Bloomberg/Killary Clinton. I have lost all respect for this band. If I had purchased a physical CD, I would use my second amendment RIGHT and shoot it.
