...So FFaF tell them for us instead.

A concept album about a fisherman stranded at sea, away from his wife and daughter. It doesn't sound like the foundations for a brilliant rock record, does it? I must admit, seeds of doubt in my mind were sown during pre-album interviews when the band talked a lot about moving away from their signature screamo sound and into more classic rock territory. Doubts over whether the band as a whole was up to the challenge. They are. And how. 'Tales Don't Tell Themselves' is a stunning collection of songs, ahich somehow do actually tell a story fairly well as part of the bargain. A stunning entrance with 'Into Oblivion (Reunion)', which has a chorus so huge it could topple mountains, sees the album start as it means to go on. Equally as impressive are 'The Great Wide Open' and the 'All Hands On Deck, Pt. 1' and 'All Hands On Deck, Pt. 2'. Funeral For A Friend have somehow pulled off a fantastic rock record. The best song is saved for near the end of the album. Now me being silly and buying it from Tesco, I don't know what 'Rise and Fall' and 'Crash and Burn' sound like. But the best song on the album is undoubtedly 'Walk Away'. A gorgeous lead guitar line falls into place with solid rhythm playing, all held together with a frankly beautiful vocal performance from Matt Davies. Astounding, and easily the best thing Funeral For A Friend have ever put their name to. The only problem I can see people having is the 'lack of distortion' or 'lack of heavy songs'. Funeral Fo A Friend have moved away from the scene that birthed them, but it's for the best. Funeral For A Friend are dead. Long live Funeral For A Friend.


this albums great go buy it now. this i can honestly say is the best to come out of ffaf. its all thriller no killer. And im seeing them live. whoop whoop. anyway buy it and enjoy!

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...
