Customer Reviews

Memory And Humanity Rocks!

Whoo! First review. This new album is amazing. They've gone back to the Hours and produced the best record of their carrer. Tracks like To Die Like Mouchette and Kicking And Screaming are awesome. Another gret FFAF record. Keep up the good work!

So so....

Not really what I was expecting from FFAF's new record label. I thought their last album was a brave attempt at a concept album but sadly failed and this album sounds half way between Hours and Tales dont tell themselves. I also think the front cover looks a little too much like a 1980's budget video game Too much pop sound to the lyrics. Good guitars but please lets go back to your EP and Casually Dressed Style.

A fair and unbias review

FFAF have come along way and have progressed an evolved just as any band does. If you compare this to previous releases it is very-middle-of-the-road. However, as a stand-alone release there are many noticeably strong qualitites. There approach to song structure is far more varied and they have definately covered new ground in the composition department. There is a mainstream thread weaved throughout this LP. There is also a sense of wasted potential that accompanies this - points in the record that could have made so much more of an impact but the tracks in question seemed to timid to take the risk (see the catchy yet dissappointingly tame 'Kicking and Screaming'). They have also delved into more balladic and deep waters with cuts like 'Building' and 'Charlie Don't Surf' which while are very accomplished in their own right, seem out of place on a FFAF LP. However, not all change is bad. The riffing in 'You can't see the forest...' is purely mosh-provoking and 'Maybe I am?' is very strong single pontential in its texture and repeatability. The rythm section remains as tight as ever and there still some of those riffs reminicent of the emotionally charged and enegetic old days of CDADIC; standouts 'Beneath the Burning Tree' and 'Ghosts' are great examples and are very pleasing if your are a FFAF traditionalist. Top of the pile by a mile is 'Waterfront Dance Club' which is nothing short of raw rock empowerment. This track soar above the rest with its athemic and arena ready qualities and one might draw parallels between this track and Lostprophets' Last Train Home. All in all a fair effort. A better and less bland opener wouldn't have done any harm. CDADIC was a peak maybe never to be reached again, Hours petered slightly but screamed loudly like an angry kid finally allowed to speak, TDTT was natural evolution recieved rather coldly and this fall somewhere in the grey area between them all. Up to you to decide where.xx

Funeral for a Friend's energized blend of emo, metal, and post-hardcore was created by vocalist Matt Davies, guitarists Kris Roberts and Darran Smith, bassist Gareth Davies, and drummer Randy Richards. The Welsh quintet first appeared in 2002 with a series of EPs and singles, including Between Order and Model, Four Ways to Scream Your Name, and Juneau. Such releases helped land the group on the cover of Kerrang! magazine, a recognition of the band's growing hype that, in turn, earned a record deal...
