I was so excited when i heard a new album was gonna drop from these guys. Anyone that listened to the last album was instantly hooked. It was upbeat with amazing riffs. They added just enough of an indie flavor to keep you on your toes. The vocals were gritty and in your face. It had dynamics. This album is boring beyond belief. It sounds extremely generic and you'd be hard pressed to find any reminisce of the great song writing that you heard in their previous albums. The vocals are dull and the energy old fans loved is no where to be found. Sorry but in my opinion this album gets one star based on their previous albums.

Changes arnt always bad

Im sick of hearing people say oh its not like the old stuff, if every band played every album like the last there would be no new tones in music, these guys have progressed greatly and to me this album has a great new feel to it and it takes their roots and blends it perfectly with a newer sound and granted it isnt a rocky as the last album it definitly gets a great point across and makes me excited to hear what else mdam has in store for their future


Very Good

A little slower, but just as powerful. An all around great album.

Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, Make Do and Mend were originally formed in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2006. Comprised of singer/guitarist James Carroll, guitarist Mike O'Toole, bassist Mike Poulin, and drummer Matt Carroll, the moody post-hardcore band mixes gruff aggression and melody in equal doses to create its driving and catchy sonic concoction. The group's recorded debut came in 2007 with the release of the We're All Just Living EP. The album eventually got Make Do and Mend signed with Panic Records, which released their follow-up EP, Bodies of Water, in 2009, as well as their first full-length outing, 2010's End Measured Mile. In 2012, bassist Poulin left the band to continue on with his other project, Defeater, and was replaced by Luke Schwartz. Later that year, Make Do and Mend signed on with Rise, and went into the studio with Matt Bayles to record their sophomore album, Everything You Ever Loved, which appeared in the summer of 2012. ~ Gregory Heaney
