The first thing you'll notice is that BT's vocalist is very, VERY unique. He screams, he sings, he mostly sings, but when he screams, it's amazing. He has that amazing range i've yet to hear from any of these so-called "emo/screamo" bands, and although the lyrics maybe aren't as good as others, the music and vocals more than make up for it. thats not to say that the lyrics are bad, no, not at all. Songs like "lies" and "nothing to lose" hint at lyrical genius without being watered down in emo cliches and eloquent double speak.
Indeed, BT is able to suck the listener into anything they say with direct, to the point, no bulls**t lyrics. Think of the way Cold's skooter ward writes a song....think....OKAY, got it? Well, yeah, that's basically how BT do it. I don't need to hear william shakesphere style s**t every time i throw on a record, so the fact that BT isn't all big words with no meaning is refreshing.
Musically though, BT finds their strongest suit. Catchy guitars, atmosphereic melodies, deeply melodic vocals and a breakneck pace keep everything flowing well for all 12 tracks. Never once do i feel the need to skip tracks, and i can't say the same for atleast 40% of the records i own (or have owned).
Billy Talent is not a band to be slept on.Read more ›
P.S. Oh, and by the way, to the guy who said this sucked and then listed "real music," I gotta ask: do you have a mind of your own? All those bands are bands that are generally accepted my mainstream audiences. Not saying some of them aren't good, but you rarely find somebody who likes exclusively all the most popular bands, unless he's just being safe with his music choices so as to avoid criticism. So to you I either say "wow, somebody who is exactly what mainstream media always thought there might be out there," or, grow up and develop your own taste in music.
The only reproach I could make about the band is that, even if they transmit a great energy during their concerts, they sound a little wrong but that's just a minor detail.
Best songs on the CD:
River Below, The Ex, Lies, Nothing to Lose, Line and Sinker
Too bad the song Beach Balls wasn't on the album.
And the guy below me can suck it as well.
BILLY TALENT IS NOT PUNK!!!!!!
People who say that, obviously do not know what punk is.
