letlive. is quite possibly one of my favorite bands right now. They have a unique sound, one that couldn't be copied even if tried. And this album, 2011's "Fake History," is an album that shows us why they are one of the best bands around right now.

From the bang of the drums that kick off "Le Prologue," to the choruses of "Renegade '86" and "H. Ledger" that will dig into your head and make itself a home there, to the almost alt-rock greatness of re-release b-side "Lemon Party," to an emotionally gripping tale about vocalist Jason Butler's mom in what is possibly the album's best song "Muther," every song on this album shines in some shape or fashion. And that is thanks to Fake History's awesome song structure and vocal melodies.

This is truly a monument of the post-hardcore genre. Fake History is an album you have to listen to if you love this kind of music. From the heart, from the mind, from the soul. Stand up.

Album highlights: "Renegade '86," "Muther," "H. Ledger," "Day 54," and "Lemon Party."

Thank the universe that all individuality has not been consumed in the last few years with all the awesome music coming out. Because just as it was getting stale LetLive. pop out this album. It truly covers so much musical ground you might feel like a new more worldly person after listening to it. It's so creative, edgy, heavy, catchy, well written. Great lyrics, vocalist has a good thing going on. Drums are progressive and jazz influenced. Guitars have a good tone, great riffs, time changes from mellow to metallic shredding are always tastefully done. It truly is a gripping album, It takes you on a voyage. Love it front to back. Great music for changing times! Still have faith in creativity and humanity!? GET THIS ALBUM!

Letlive. are at the top of their game. I got this album last year, plenty of time after it had been released but also well before the new album was about to come out. It was my jam for the summer. Then the new beauty of an album came out this year. I don't know how they are not "band of the year" for different magazines. Such great music that just can't really be compared to anyone else. If no one else has told you this before I'll tell you now, see them live. They are great and awesome people if you get the chance to meet them after the show. As far as the album goes, make sure to check out Homeless Jazz and Muther. Muther is such a powerful, honest song while Homeless Jazz is probably the most underrated song by the band.

After listening to this album religiously for about two weeks I decided to order a copy on vinyl. The music, in and of itself, is reminiscent of Glassjaw's amalgamation of styles but has a clearer objective and drive throughout the album. The first 11 songs were featured on the original release of Fake History, with the latter tracks being b-sides added on with it's second release. Tracks like "Casino Columbus" and "We, The Pros of Con" display the brilliance this band has been working toward. Others, like "Muther" transcend their sound into a more experimental form complete with melodic marksmanship.

As for the vinyl pressing...well, it sounds great. It's thick (but not 180), but most of the tracks are condensed onto the first LP. The second LP has four tracks on one side with their logo pressed on side B. The sleeve and packaging is gatefold. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this LP and love listening to it on my setup for both sonic quality and brilliance of music.

I heard a few songs on Internet radio and it caught my attention. I decided to buy this record and thank goodness I did. This is one of the better records to come out in the past decade. What does it sound like you ask? Aggressive, raw, melodic, pure passion, Ect. The vocalist really engages the listener early on and sweeps through their head space with changing tones, pitches and downright power. Instrumentally everything is on point. I'd say if you're into metalcore, give this record a go. If you're into a punkish rock vibe give this a spin.

Definetly one of the best albums I've purchased in a while. Extremely dramatic, chaotic, transiet. This albums all over the place not in a progressive light but in an emotional rollercoaster kind of sense. The singer musicianship and tasteful delivery will take you on a ride for sure I recommend this album to anyone who listens to any form of music from jazz to metal

This album made me fall in love with post-hardcore all over again. The passionate vocal delivery, the instantly catchy riffs, and the off-kilter drumming of this record is a refreshing collection of music in a genre that is ruled by mediocrity. Highly recommended for fans of At the Drive In, The Blood Brothers, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Refused, and Converge.
