Album Review

Rooms of the House is the third full-length album from Grand Rapids, Michigan-based post-hardcore group La Dispute. The band's style is unique in part due to lyricist/vocalist Jordan Dreyer's pictorial, poetic lyrics, which fade in and out from vivid spoken word imagery to pained emo screaming. The album was co-produced by Philadelphia multi-genre producer Will Yip and represents one of the first releases on the band's own Better Living label, following a series of label changes on previous albums. Throughout the album, Dreyer paints intricate lyrical pictures of both nightmarish stream-of-consciousness images and banal everyday life as the band explodes behind his strange, often painful stories.

Customer Reviews


I got my preorder about a week early, and was fortunate enough to get aquainted with the album before it was released. Just like any La Dispute record, it takes a long time to figure out.

Thematically they are focusing not on huge, awful tragedies like Wildlife, but on a specific situation: the collapse of a relationship between a couple living together. There seems to be less emotional, personal lyrics and more narratives. This seems like a negative thing until you start to figure out the story, then you start to feel the emotions you know the characters feel. It actually makes the album more personal, because you're not told what to feel, you feel it yourself.

Musically, they've gone even farther into the direction of Wildlife. There aren't nearly as many big, heavy moments as they use to have, but when they do, they feel bigger and heavier. They focus less on noodly riffs and more on thick chords. Vocally, Jordan sits much more into the spoken-word side of things, sometimes bringing to mind their Hear, Hear projects. He even sings a few times throughout the record. Again, when he does get a little rougher; it's much more intense simply because of it's rareity.

Overall, the album is incredible. I haven't got it figured out yet, and hopefully it takes a while. One thing I know: with every listen, it gets better. You hear more, notice more, find another piece to the puzzle that is ROTH. Get it and live the La Dispute experience.
