EDITORS’ NOTES

Saosin's second album crackles with big, pleading choruses and searing riffs as they deepen the emotional and stylistic contours of their post-hardcore sound. The result is a set that camps out at the border of melancholy and urgency, melodic invention and thrashing chaos. On “I Keep My Secrets Safe” and “Say Goodbye,” they pivot between labyrinthine guitars and refrains sticky with atmosphere; Cove Reber rises from the din, bringing with him a newfound tenderness. Yet as the sidewinding “Is This Real” demonstrates, the singer is still beholden to his own seething frustration and rage.
