Doomsday scenarios are often predictive about an ending in life, revealing just what would occur if the world pushed itself to the brink of extinction. And the term “endgame” typically parallels such thinking, often evoking concepts of finality or termination.

But for Rise Against, this particular endgame might just be their beginning.

EDITED INTRO: I respect Rise Against to no end. 13 years ago, I was fortunate enough to see them for the first time at the record release show for The Unraveling in Chicago. At that show, Rise Against instantly became one of my favorite bands. Over the last 13 years, I've maintained my love for the band. Sure, I don't care for a song here and there, but the words "they suck", or "**** them" have NEVER come out of my mouth... or fingers.
This band put their time in with previous endeavors (88 Fingers Louie, Baxter, The Honor System, etc.), and they've earned their popularity. Their honest dudes, and deserve respect.

Now, onto the original review I submitted yesterday:

Three years ago I wrote a review of Endgame, stating that, while a good album, it fell flat compared to the band's other five releases.

The Black Market can't fall flat, because it never even gets off of the ground.
Endgame has definitely warmed up to me a bit more, but is still just an "Ok" album. At least the first handful of tracks on Endgame were pretty ace before the album dropped down to mediocre levels.

The first song on The Black Market, "The Great Die-Off", is decent, and that was a huge red flag. No other album opener from Rise Against has been "decent". "Alive and Well", "Black Masks and Gasoline", "State of the Union", "Chamber the Cartridge", "Collapse", and "Architects" are all raging, angst-filled, totally kick-a** songs that get you excited for what's to follow. "The Great Die-Off" doesn't come close at all.

First single "I Don't Wanna Be Here Anymore" is actually the best song on the album.

This is far more enjoyable than "Endgame" and "Appeal to Reason", but isn't quite as good as their first four albums. The energy and urgency of their older material has made a slight return and this album has a quicker pace than the last two, but there are still a few problems with it. The song "Methadone" is indicative of every problem ATP and "Endgame" had - it's bland, it's boring, it's a little directionless. "Sudden Life" sounds like a Foo Fighters b-side. The chorus to "The Black Market" sounds like it was just thrown in there and it doesn't flow properly with the rest of the track.

As for positives, songs like "Eco", "The Great Die-Off", "A Beautiful Indifference", and "Zero Visibility" are quite energetic and fun tracks. I could easily see any of those inciting a circle pit if played live, and hopefully on this upcoming tour they will be included in their setlists. We have also seen the return of Tim McIlrath's hardcore-style screaming ("Eco") and he just sounds better on this album in general. "People Live Here" is a great soft/acoustic track with sad and thought-provoking lyricism.

Overall, it's not their best. Do NOT expect another "Revolutions Per Minute" or "Siren Song of the Counter Culture", because that's not what you're going to get. However, what you will get is a pretty solid, enjoyable rock album with some speed-driven Bad Religion-esque punk rock interwoven into it. It has its faults, but its strengths make up for this. People that enjoy the last two albums will likely love it and I'd certainly recommend it to them, and people that fell away a few years ago might find that they like it better than their last couple of releases and should give it a shot.

Not their best stuff whatsoever, but its a decent album. I suppose the longer I listen to it the better it might get, but I feel like this album just hasn't grabbed my attention like their previous.

At first I disliked this album but the more I listened to it, the more I loved it. Even songs that I really couldn't stand or really made me question whether I was still listening to Rise Against ( had to check my my phone) such as Sudden Life and Methadone, I have grown to love.

This isn't the hardcore "screamy" album I wanted, it's not even punk apart from a few songs, but it is a great Hard-Rock album and a solid one from them. The personal lyrics over political are also amazing though I have to admit I'll always take political over personal.

I am really digging their confidence in The Black Market over the awkwardness from Endgame and Appeal to Reason. The finally mastered their new sound. Tim knows his voice has changed and he's not trying to cover it up anymore. The guitars finally shine rather than just grind into distinguishable white noise. The drums are a bit predictable but not bad by any means.

Highlights of the album: The Great Die-Off, The Black Market, Zero Visibility, Awake Too Long and Bridges. (Although, the bonus track Escape Artists isn't on the album, if you can find it like I have, it is another amazing song and they made a huge mistake leaving it off.

Even though my favourite albums are the Unraveling and RPM and I would love it if they made another one like it, it is time to admit that they won't. People grow up, voices change, style changes and the Black Market is their new style and I'm okay with that. The lyrics keep improving, the music is more honed, Tim's voice is still great and the fact that he rarely screams on the newer stuff really makes me appreciate it when he does. I'm giving this 5 stars because they are still, to me, the same Rise Against I discovered in 2004. Their stuff is more melodic rather than punk, but that fighting spirit is still there.
