Editorial Reviews

Urgent, aggressive, and remarkably cathartic, Let The Ocean Take Me is The Amity Affliction at their most vital best. Recorded by producer Will Putney (Winds Of Plague, Upon A Burning Body) at guitarist Troy Brady s Evergreen Studios in Brisbane, the album pushes the band s signature post-hardcore approach to new heights of richness and diversity, providing the consummate aural partner to vocalist Joel Birch s increasingly more potent lyricism. Inspired in part by a near death experience suffered during 2013's Vans Warped Tour, songs like "Don t Lean On Me" and "FML" are fueled by desperate emotion and intense anxiety but achieve extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and raw power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid Album June 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album continues the band into the direction of finding their niche and it sounds good. This go around Joel and Ahren's vocals have defiantly improved in a good way on this album. Especially in Joel's Unclean/Harsh vocal performance. Below I have broken out my review on a track by track bases.

1. Pittsburgh - 10/10 - Starts off with a very slow ambient intro that I did not expect but sounds good. The intro then leads into the all so familiar voice of Joel Birch. The song structure include the routine back and forth between Harsh/Clean vocals, with a very melodic chorus with possibly the most memorable lyrics in a chorus I have heard from them. Then finally leading into a youth choir singing the chorus which is a nice touch.
2. Lost and Fading - 8/10 - This also has another notably catchy chorus, with an ambient break down the leads into some techno/electronic instrumental support but not enough to take anything away from the track.
3. Don't Lean On Me - 9/10 - This song starts off with a very beautiful classic piano intro. The song structure after this is very well standard to the genre but in a good way. The song also calls upon violin and piano for the entirety of the track.
4. The Weigh Down - 8/10 - This intro also rely on a piano intro but in a much different way. The intro could be straight out of the 90's pop hand book. Some vocal break ups and electronic beats and breakdowns can be noted on this song, but again in a very small portion as to not feel over bearing.
5. Never Alone - 8/10 - Another piano intro but this time assisted by the rest of the band. Some special effects assist this song throughout. This song has a very uplifting and soft feeling/flow to it with Ahrens's clean vocals defiantly outshining here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bands best work to date! June 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Not being a huge fan of metal core/ screamo with only death metal style vocals and no melodies or any melodic transitions or sounds, The Amity Affliction have been able to write melodic songs while never losing a second of aggression. The balance between the vocalists Ahren Stringe and Joel Birch are a thing of sonic beauty. They have solid song writing skills, able to have fluid transitions, spot on dynamics, and simple but very effective bridges. Being a drummer, Ryan Burt ties the whole band together and shines like the sun on this album. I really dig the whole ocean/water concept and this album translates for both heavy metal or post hardcore fans. Simply stated, this is a must have album! Oh and this band deserves to have this CD bought and not downloaded (freely/illegally), smell what I'm sprayin?

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible July 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I usually don't like this genre of music but these guys are incredible and really standout from all other metalcore bands. The screams are extremely killer while the clean parts are very powerful. Great album it's a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best album ever July 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is even better than chasing ghosts. The lyrics are great, the music is beautiful. I can't listen to them enough. I love all the songs but my favorites are; forest fire, FML, never alone & don't lean on me.
