Album Review

Bullet for My Valentine hits the ground running and maintains a blistering pace throughout most of Scream Aim Fire, not even slowing down for "Hearts Burst Into Fire," the first of two love songs featured on the album. It's definitely harder and more aggressive than the band's debut album, The Poison, which had a sound evenly divided between emo and metal. For Scream Aim Fire, Bullet for My Valentine leans more toward the latter and sounds increasingly self-assured and solid for it. That's not to say that the group has switched genres or completely changed their approach — Scream Aim Fire isn't an album from a band in transition, but a band in the process of evolving. Having found a formula that works, Bullet for My Valentine expands it and incorporates different influences. (The guitar solos in "Waking the Demon" are comparable to those on Avenged Sevenfold's City of Evil, while Matt Tuck's vocals on "Deliver Us from Evil" bear enough resemblance to Gerard Way that they induce a double take.) But thanks to Scream Aim Fire's pacing, it can be difficult to appreciate the band's growth. The songs breeze by at the beginning, slow down for two or three tracks in the middle, then pick up abruptly toward the end. A more even distribution between fast and slow songs would have done the album a world of good. Fortunately, Bullet for My Valentine ends the album effort with "Forever and Always," an arena-ready power ballad whose unwavering midtempo beat is steadying after the frenetic songs that precede it. Its concert-closer feel isn't coincidence — not only does the song bring Scream Aim Fire to a satisfying conclusion; it also begs for an encore.

Customer Reviews

For a Reason.

For starters, I have been listening to this album for about 8 months now. Its still just as good as when I got it. How some of you can't "get into this album" or just "don't like the way they're going" is amazing. 1. Because I've seen it so many times, BFMV was NEVER AN EMO BAND, and THEY NEVER WILL BE. Take the song Curses from everyone's beloved Hand of Blood album. The words "I need a MAP to find my WAY OUT OF THIS ONE" are exact proof. They have ALWAYS had a metal sound, but its just been muffled. 2. This album isn't SUPPOSED to be the exact same thing as the Poison, or Hand of Blood. The whole point of different albums is to experiment with different types of songs. How boring would it be if you were just listening to the SAME guitar being played, but with different lyrics in place? (For example, listen to Dragonforce. It's sound NEVER changes) 3. Theres nothing MAINSTREAM about this at all either. Mainstream = Jonas Brothers. Mainstream = Linkin Park. Mainstream = Blink 182. Mainstream is NOT BFMV. If anything, this album sounds DARKER then The Poison, so maybe you all should wax your ears a little more often. But enough negative. The guitar is REALLY alive in this album, extremely energetic and fast paced, for example, Waking the Demon. The lyrics aren't the greatest in the world, but why should they be? Its not absolutely necessary for lyrics to be 100% sane. I don't know what you guys are listening too, but Matt can still scream. Not perfect, but he isn't singing like a stupid Jonas brother. He's screaming. In the end, 10/10 album. Good piece of work, and it is true that the Poison was an extremely hard album to play up on, but they did a great job.

Good

The Album was worth buying. Waking the Demon is Crazy.

A great return from a great band

Ok I know 2008 just began but this album sets the bar high. It starts with the title track as moose's drum intro grabs you and straps you in, you know imediatly you are going for a wild ride. The intesity is kept with the next track "Eye of the storm", then it slows down a little bit like you've reached a spot on your thirll ride were it is calm. Then imediatly it starts with the adrenilne pumping "Waking the Demon". This intensity is kept through the rest of the album untill your thrill ride come to and end after "Forever and Always". All in all a great return from a great band can't wait to see them on tour!
