EDITORS’ NOTES

The descending vocal melody and gang-guitar backdrop on “Feels Like Forever” evoke a trip to hell until the chorus, which is hugely optimistic. Similar uncanny moments fill the album (dig the psych guitar on “Bones Exposed”!). “The Space Enough to Grow” lifts on tender melodies and a lyrical vulnerability that’s unusual for metalcore. But overall, singer Austin Carlile (ex–Attack Attack!) and the boys are on a thrashy mission to modernize the forbidding resolve of old-school nu-metal. This deluxe version of the 2014 release features new songs, including the great “Broken Generation,” the rising band’s finest anthem yet.

disappointed

this was a definite let down as far as an album from these guys go. they sold out into mainstream rock and it’s so sad to see because they had so much potential as a post hardcore band. and no one is willing to admit they sold out because austin is a cutiepie and these guys are supposed to be the best of the best (which they were at one point). this album is okay, but definitely not as good as the flood or their self-titled. who knows? maybe the three extra songs might make the album a little better. I really hope they stick to their old stuff when it comes to their next album. even though this eventually sort of grew on me, it got old fast and is terrible in comparison to what it could’ve been. ):

Phenomenal.

I did not necessarily like the new change in sound, but it eventually grew on me and cannot wait to see their improvement, and hear the new songs.

So-So

I like of Mice & Men a lot, and the two new song i’ve managed to hear before the release “Broken Generation, and Never Giving up” are both good songs. But I can’t help but feeling like i’ve been ripped off when they say “Buy this great album”, then the next year see them come around and go “We never gave you the full thing now re-buy everything for three songs and an acoustic song you won’t listen to”.
