I came across this band a about 6 months before the release of their first full length, Separation. I bought their split LP with Tiger's Jaw and Only Boundaries. Upon hearing Separation for the first time, I knew this band was going to be something big. They've grown so drastically in popularity in the past couple years. The Things We Think We're Missing is the highly anticipated follow up that could really make or break a band. Balance and Composure are dead on with this release. The guitars are heavy as hell, the rhythm section is super solid, and the vocals are emotional, loud and impressive. This record flows seamlessly from track to track and never breaks character. I'm an almost 30 year old emo kid who hates everything that comes out at this point. But seriously, these guys kill it and deserve every bit of success they shall have bestowed upon them. Much respect B&C.

This is a pure, loud, and honest rock record.

I got into them after seeing them open for Circa Survive of which I'm a big fan. They were actually the best part of the show and one of the best openers I've ever seen. I immediately bought their debut LP "Separation" which is a gem. I preordered this follow up album and was not disappointed.

B&C have made one heck of an album! Lyrics are prefect and different. Wonderful guitar riffs! Every song has something.... It makes you want to listen to the whole album without skipping anything. Seriously, GO BUY IT RIGHT NOW!

I really like this album for it's ambiance and feel, although I wish the overall album and songs had more infliction. It felt like the album was starting to sound the same only after a few songs. I really like full albums that have different dynamics, where each song has it's own personality. I didn't feel this shined through as well as I would have liked.

As an avid fan of Balance & Composure for a few years now, I was eager to hear what they had in store for their 2nd LP. And It's solid. But far from their best work. Meaning it isn't Separation, or the Split EP with Tigers Jaw. (which is in my opinion, their best work to date.) If you're into the sound B&C puts out, you'll dig this album. Just sort of sounds like more of the same from a band that has massive potential, and the creative talent to put something amazing together. Don't get me wrong, I still give it 5 stars. Things We Think We're Missing delivers exactly what you want it to. Nice chunky guitar riffs combined with deep brooding lyrics. Simmons' vocals are as strong as ever before, too.

Personal Favs:
Parachutes
Tiny Raindrops
Notice Me
Ella
Cut Me Open
Dirty Head
Enemy

This is a big leap in growth and maturity for Balance & Composure when compared to their first full-length. It's an ambitious modern rock record at a time when ambition is the last thing one finds in harder edged music.

Vocalist/guitarist Jon Simmons leads the way with powerful, emotive singing, leaving it all out there on "Cut Me Open" and "Notice Me," two of the stronger songs on the album. Introduce your mellower-listening friends to "Tiny Raindrop," a gorgeous track that really stands out against the more aggressive 3-guitar attack of much else found here.

These guys toured with Circa Survive for their last album and seem to have picked up a few positive tricks along the way. The songs are tight but find ways to shift gears internally, which keeps things interesting. Overall, a true up & coming band that bears watching, now and in the future.

From the opening discord of “Parachutes” I was hooked. I took a chance on this band and this release has paid off. This is a dirty aggressive alternative squall of a sound leaning heavily on a spacious reverby electric guitar and a dense rhythm section that alternates fast/slow frequently. They are fronted by a male vocalist who drones a bit when singing clearly and slurs a bit when pseudo-screaming/singing aggressively (this is not screamo, though). The songs are about broken hearts and the wakes of destruction from love sunk. Consider the lyrics to “Parachutes”: “My vacant heart, how is it that you split in two parts? I’m checking in to reminisce. A roller coaster ride in the dark to places I don’t want to go. Parachutes to break my fall, tangled up in deeper thought, makes falling faster. I’m falling faster.” This is all a muddy thick scrawl, downbeat and letting off steam that’s already been spent in lost breaths, perfect for funneling the feelings of fuddled teens and early twenty-year-olds tangled in the snapped lines of lost love and smoky memory and fretful yearning. As the song “Back of Your Head” goes…”all you wanted was that feeling.” That feeling is what B&C have given the listener, in spades. As a bonus the album packaging and artwork are cool too. They make use of a psychedelic splash of colors overlay of a veiled bride. It’s kinda creepy.
