It's nice to hear bands that sound different in a genre of music that is flooded with carbon copies.

I was almost disappointed when I first listened to this album...after about the 3rd time playing it, it had become my favorite Every Time I Die album.

"New Junk Aesthetic" may not exactly be a mind-blowing affair, but it is even further from being a bad or even mediocre one.

To begin, I would rate Every Time I Die's album a 4.5/5. It's not perfect, but pretty darn good for sure.

Now, time to critique...

This, without a doubt, is a new sounding album. It's identifiably different from any other work ETID has done in the past, but it still holds true to their sound and style. The Southern Sound is there, and so are the heavy riffs and belching yells; yet it has a different flavor. I've only had the CD for two days now and listened to each song between 4-8 times, but that does not stop me from noticing a few differences in this album when compared to ETID's past work:

1) The guitars have a different sound. I cannot pin-point it, but when paired up against The Big Dirty or The Gutter Phenomenon, they just sound different. Maybe a slightly different tuning? I don't know for certain, but it sure does produce a darker and heavier sound. Also, the dual guitars are not as prevalent. In most of the songs it sounds like only one guitar did the recording. I'm not sure why, for I loved the intricacy of the dual guitars in The Big Dirty and The Gutter Phenomenon. Don't get me wrong, the riffs are intricate and definitely don't disappoint, just different.

2) The drumming is more intense in this album without a doubt. It's faster, more complex, and just plain great.

3) Keith does something different with his lyrical duties on this album. Overall, I don't really like The New Junk Aesthetic's lyrics as much as ETID's other albums. In over half of his songs he repeats the same lines over and over. The repetition may work sometimes, but it gets old when it is occurring in every song. Another thing Keith changed was the range of his screams. He seems to have extended his range or something.

I don't know what their other albums stand like, I'm not a fan of Every Time I Die in that I've never listened to them before so I can't rate this album in the context of their corpus.

But as an album, on it's own, it's great.

Technical without being obnoxious and groovy at the same time. The lyrics are insightful, the vocals are screamed intelligibly and every track brings something to the table.

Also taken as a whole, the album has a progression from beginning to end. Not a concept album, just a nicely laid out collection of songs with a coherent path.

A solid metal album that stands on its own.

Not quite my favorite ETID album, but with these guys it's hard for me to pick one. They seem to be able to keep their specific stylized sound while changing motif for every album. I bought this on CD the day it was released and now I've just gotten the vinyl. My only beef is that the vinyl disc was defective upon arrival but thats not ETID's fault and it's not the seller's fault. No worries.

Keith Buckley may not be the Ernest Hemingway of our generation, but he certainly shares some similarities. His lyrics on New Junk Aesthetic are the misanthropic poetry of a bitter old man, ridden with anger, self doubt, and bitter resignation. Musically, the guitar work is complex without being inaccessible, the drums serve their purpose without screaming for attention, and the bass lurks in the background, making little contributions here and there but generally going unnoticed. This album gets 4 stars out of 5, as 1) I could use a little more from the bass and 2) I'd like to hear more singing from Keith. A great listen for the drunk and/or bitter.

ETID seems to be sticking with the formula that has been working with them. That is a formula that always finds it's way into my workout playlist. The artwork included with this album is aesthetically appealing and done by one of the band members... props to you fine sir. The DVD has a couple laughs in it.

New Junk Aesthetic, is leaps and bounds Everytime I Dies strongest album to date. Combining their seriously dry sense of humour with themes of death, longing, and desire to create their most enjoyable album to date. But also combining their more recent southern rock leanings with their metalcore roots to the greatest effect they have yet.

Musicianship wise, Everytime I Die has never sounded better, or been more creative. Andy Williams, and Keith Buckley play the best riffs of their career, And whoever they have decided to use on drums is the best they've ever had. On a side note Keith Buckley proves he actually has a voice for once.

'Wanderlust' might just be the greatest thing the boys have ever recorded. It's one of the better songs the genre has ever produced. Multiple parts, rhythm changes, great riffs, and Buckleys best set of lyrics yet. 'Who Invinted The Russian Soldier' is also a strong runner up for second best. 'Organ Grinder' while cliche is done nicely.

The album however isn't without it's low moments; 'Host Disorder' snd the closer 'The Sweet Life' are both forgettable.

I'm anxious to see where these boys will go next.
