Editorial Reviews

Vices when you think about Dead Poetic's new album, Vices, think classic rock n' roll or the '90s alt-rock nation. Vices owes more to Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam than whichever "scene" bands have skipped the VFW Halls and gone straight to the mainstream this week. Vices reflects their strongest evolution yet. Unencumbered by expectations, Dead Poetic set out to write the record they had always wanted to make. The end result is something more honest in every sense of the word, musically and lyrically. Songs like ''Crashing Down'' and ''Paralytic,'' co-written with Deftones Chino Moreno (who also guests) are the tip of a rich iceberg full of new sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Rock Record November 2, 2006
By Rick
Format:Audio CD
Four Wall Blackmail put this band on the map. Their invigorating blend of post-hardcore and Thursday worship was perfectly timed. New Medicines catapulted this band to the top of the new wave screamo genre. The maturation of their earlier sound combined with a more refined songwriting ability allowed the band to create an undeniably forceful release. Vices will be the album that paints a picture of a band persevering through adversity and coming out on the other side stronger than ever before. This album, without a doubt, shows the band coming together to create their most mature release to date and, at the same time, shows that they're not concerned with riding along on the wave of the popular genre of the day.

Strip away what you previously knew about this band. This isn't a screamo release. This isn't a scene-centric CD. This isn't a cliché ridden album. This isn't like their last two efforts. What this album is, is a straight ahead, solid, rock record. I'm sure that to many fans this is the worst news in the world, but to those of you can look beyond a band's looks and past, those of you who simply enjoy good music, this is as solid of a release as you will find in the rock arena.

The biggest change that people will notice is the lack of screaming. This really shouldn't feel like that big of a change, however, as it is easy to see the natural progression of the band from their inception to the current day in regards to this piece of the band. Their first record was raw and emotional, with a moderately heavy focus on screaming. Their sophomore effort had considerably less screaming as the focus was more on using it to augment passages of songs as opposed to being the focal point, with there even being a couple of songs that were found on New Medicines sans screaming.

5.0 out of 5 stars One vice you'll want to have October 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Dead Poetic's third studio release, "Vices", is nothing short of fantastic. It's been a long time in production (and I've been a long time in waiting) and I must say, as a Dead Poetic fan, I am more than satisfied.

Now, if you follow Dead Poetic's recoded history, one notices that each album is unlike the last -- each bringing forth it's own dimension of originality with a "raw rawk" taste. "Vices" is no exception. Although a slightly more commercial than their latest releases, this new album is sure to have you singing along and drumming on the steering wheel (or thigh, depending on where you are). Songs like "Narcotic" and "Lioness" are more on the edgier side, while "In Coma" tends more to the "emo-esque" side. The band said themselves that they don't consider their music any one genre and, true to their word, Dead Poetic can only be compared with Dead Poetic.

Musically, "Vices" is a fantastic mixture of power and melody. I do believe that, without the extensive screaming (encountered in "Four Wall Blackmail" and lessened in "New Medicines") Dead Poetic will see an increase in their fan base (my wife, for example) -- while still edgy enough to maintain their older fans (like me). Lyrically, they've always been, well, poetic (pardon the cliché) and innovative. Speaking to problems that are heart-spawned, "Vices" is surely to catch your ear and your wit.

So, basically, you have an awesome album made by a fantastic band. This is an album no one should deny themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Poetic Try Something New... And It's Pretty Good! October 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
With all the internal problems this band has been dealing with over the last couple years (there was even a time when they were going to call it quits), it's surprising that "Vices" ever made it's way to our hands. While "Vices" might be somewhat of a departure from their screamo-tinged past releases "Four Wall Blackmail" and "New Medicines," the catchiness of this record and its songs is undeniable. You'd be hard pressed to find any cliche screaming or metalcore breakdowns this time around. Dead Poetic have released a great ROCK record. Fitting since after all they are a ROCK band.

"Vices" may not seem as outwardly heavy as its predecessors upon first listen, but go back and check tracks like "Lioness" and "Narkotic" again. Who said there had to be screaming for a song to be heavy? Dead Poetic brings this "melodic-heavy" style to the forefront of their music. This means Brandon is the center of the sound, constantly laying lush vocals over the music. There's a chorus in almost every one of these songs that will probably get stuck in your head for a while. Pieces like "Coma," and "Paralytic" are prime examples of how DP can work impressive dynamics, taking a song from a calm beginning to a gigantic sounding chorus. Brandon attacks different things lyrically this time around (Human Nature, Despair, Self-Destruction) and it's great to see these guys trying to create songs which are not only incredibly catchy, but carry some weight.

The only downside of the disc is that at 14 tracks, it's kind of long. This also means there are a few clunkers strung throughout. "Animals" is more or less a worthless interlude with a few vocals spread throughout. "Pretty, Pretty", and "The Victim" while having their moments, feel like fairly uninspired/unappealing songs that were used as filler.
