iTunes Editors' Notes

Lostprophets’ fifth studio album resonates with the same bloodlust of their first. Right from the opening single, “Bring ‘Em Down,” the Welsh sextet plays with angered urgency, as a needling guitar lead and hammering rhythm set the stage. Frontman Ian Watkins sings alongside his band counting down in gang vocals, while electro-industrial flourishes provide a darkened, kinetic backdrop. But it’s less obvious (and catchier) album cuts like “We Bring an Arsenal” that best exemplify the band’s prowess and chemistry. The group nearly reinvents the power ballad with “Another Shot”, boasting an ascending progression of triumphant guitar chords. When compared to the more formulaic ballad “Somedays”, "Another Shot" provides a more natural take on the band’s penchant for penning dark serenades. “Jesus Walks” overarches to reach for an Arcade Fire–style panorama, making a good argument as to why a band of this ilk needs six members. Saving the best for last, the band makes the title track detonate with a ferocious attack—this is how you close an album.

Really?

Start something seems a million years ago. RIP Lostprophets.

Not bad

Not bad but none of the new stuff compares to the fake sound of progress/ start something , alot of cheesy american stiyle tunes of late

Meh

When I first heard Better Off Dead I was seriously dreading this album and I think my fears have been realised. Bring 'Em Down is a great song; has a really catchy melody but it is extremely repetitive which mirrors the entire album. All of the songs have the same sounds and melodies and sound so metallicaly awful. I respect this is a branch off from the past albums but maybe it's just a fling in the complete wrong direction. However, a band's sound depends on the people in it and they dictate the sound. But, I am still extremely disappointed by Weapons.
