I've listened to the digital download of the album all morning and afternoon since its release. I normally like to reserve any reviews for an album for at least a month after its release simply for the fact that some songs,or sometimes a whole album can grow on you. Yet I feel Apparitional was something I couldn't hold back for a later date.
The album itself is not bad,but I feel only a few songs are worthy standouts that hold up against previous releases.The rest seem to be part of a transistion that will only become more apparent with further releases. The sound of Blitzkid seems to be changing more to the sound of 1476 (though it's subtle) ,which ultimatly sounds as if it's something more commericialy viable for the band all together.
Upon first listening I was somewhat let down with what I was hearing but it's already growing on me. I just wish it had a more "in your face" appeal to it.
Despite me coming across somber in this review,overall it's still a solid release from one of the only bands that truley matters in todays age of uninspired loops and autotuned vocals.

Long live the horror and long live Blitzkid!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing CD April 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
"apparitional" is without a doubt the best that Blitzkid has put out. The sound quality is one hundred fold better than previous albums. The lyrical content is still amazing as ever, and everything is so catchy you won't be able to get it out of your head - in a good way!

My personal favorites are "She Won't Stop Bleeding", "The Bat Whispers", "Moonlite Veins", and "Wretched". The vocals are really top notch on this album.

The review below me is completely off in saying this album was recorded before other members were in the band. That is completely untrue as they were playing shows right before the recorded the album.

Any departures from the band don't seem to be a problem because this album is incredible and I can't wait to go see Blitzkid on tour!
Also, if you buy the digital version, which I also did, you're missing out on the awesome booklet. The artwork is really incredible, and very creepy. A must have for any horror punk collector and now even punk rock in general. A lot of green day and bad religion influence, and it sounds awesome!!!! LONG LIVE THE HORROR.

4.0 out of 5 stars TB Or Not TB.... March 29, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
With a change in sound this drastic, the only real that I find with this record is that its still called Blitzkid. What I hear is a great melodic punk album in the vein of early Green Day (around the Kerplunk era). Its catchy and sugary-sweet enough to win over new fans. In fact, it would be hard to believe that the change in sound (and the line-up) was not done with this in mind.

TB was one-half of the magic of Blitzkid. It would be like having Simon without Garfunkel (ok, not the best musical comparison, but you get me...) I don't understand why TB did not sing on this album. I know TB had been long unhappy in Blitzkid and made the decision to leave, I just get the feeling that its partly because he wasn't given the same amount of input as before. I Hope I'm wrong.

Anyway, back to the album. Great songs here. They're All Dead, The Bat Whispers (wow), and Wretched are my personal favorites. The sax in Cask of Amontillado is great too and recalls Starlite Decay. Mr. Gore has an especially old school feel to it. Goolsby does his best vocal performance to date, though now he sounds so much like Billie Joe I can't recognize him. Doyle (yeah that Doyle) played guitar on Mr. Sardonicus, though I can hardly tell. The best part of the album is that its not overrun with those cheesy and over-used "HEYS!" that ruined Anatomy of Re-Animation and parts of 5 Cellars Below for me. God that was annoying. Apparitional is more of a straight-forward punk album and has less experimentation this time around. Thats not a bad thing though, its a high energy record. The most experimentation comes on the slow version of Head Over Hills which I think is the better version and how they play it live. Its no coincidence that their first major label album is this melodic and poppy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half The Band They Used To Be......And Still Great! October 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Blitzkid has returned, but half of it is gone! As you probably know, Blitzkid have always pretty much been a band composed of two guys, Argyle Goolsby and TB Monstrosity. TB left the band, leaving Goolsby to get a new band together and carry on the name. It's natural to be doubtful of course. I mean, it's like Hall without Oates, Seals Without Croft, Kid without Play.....and Peter and Paul without Mary. You see what I mean, I hope.
But I suppose we can lay our fears to rest because this album is very, very good. I've always seen Blitzkid as the more romantic and goth-y of the horrorpunk genre. It's the band I can see more goth chicks getting into than say, The Crimson Ghosts. To me, it's apparent now that much of that was attributed to TB. Don't get me wrong, this album is the same in tone as all of their others, but the sound is more uptempo this time. I don't think the band's sound change here is as drastic as others have stated. Think of the heavier, faster punk songs on past albums, and that's pretty much what the bulk of this album sounds like. I guess Goolsby was the punkier one of the band.
With Blitzkid I usually have to give a new album a spin a few times before it really gets it hooks in(which is the sign of a good band I think), and this one was no exception. I've listened a few times now and I've arrived at a four star rating. Maybe a few more listens could yield a five star! But I do have to say that Goolsby is doing justice to the Blitzkid name, as Apparitional stands right up proudly next to their best work.
Go Goolsby!
