5.0 out of 5 stars Not since *Casually Dressed....* April 6, 2011
By Idris
Format:Audio CD
I just finished listening to this for the second and my thoughts are the same as the first. Not since *Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation* have I heard the best from FFaF. In rank I feel like *Casually Dressed...* was immortal. Things got a little different with *Hours*. It was definitely listenable as it had several memorable tracks but to this day I still feel like it lacked that...fresh punch that its predecessor possessed. I know, I know its usual for bands to progress or change their sound. Don't get me started on *Tales Don't Tell Themselves*. That disc I feel was a waste of air time. While I'm sure it was their most accessible, I feel it was way too soft and NOT FFaF at all. It just didn't fit. With their last disc *Memory and Humanity*, FFaF finally got on the right path... sort of. The first two tracks are two of my all time faves from this band but like *Hours* I feel it was a mixed bag.

When I got word two months ago that FFaF were releasing a new disc, I cringed while simultaneously hoping that they'd get it right. I'm here to say they did. Holy crap, they did. The intro is a short melodic one. Kind of like the calm before the storm. The rest of the album pretty much picks you up and never lets you go. For anyone that has been pining for the good ole sound of *Casually Dressed...*, you owe it to yourself to pick up *Welcome Home Armageddon*. It to me is the bands' tightest collection of songs and the screams are more than abundant. Let's see how long it'll hold up.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Album is Really Good! March 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I haven't listened to Funeral For A Friend that much over the years, but with the release of this album it has caught my ears. I first heard about Funeral For A Friend in 2008, but I didn't listen to them that much, the reason why is I don't know. This album amazes me. I feel bad for not taking this band more serious in the past. I've been missing out on some great music. I really like the sound on this album. I'm glad I decided to check out Funeral For A Friend again, because over the last few years I've been missing out on something that is great. My favorite songs on this album are:
1. Medicated
2. Broken Foundation
3. Owls ( Are Watching )
4. Spinning Over The Island

3.0 out of 5 stars Running Backwards January 31, 2013
By Eric D
Format:Audio CD
Gosh, I can't stand it when bands try and go back to their "classic sound" to please whiny fans. You could say that is a bias that would skew my review of this album, but I'd argue against that point, seeing as FFAF is my favorite band and I've loved every album of theirs more than the one before it (for the most part). Let me explain.

I'll admit that Hours was the first thing I heard from them. A lot of fans cite Casually as what sucked them in. Sadly, however, many of these folks also claim this was the only thing or worth the band ever produced. I'm not saying these people are wrong. Opinions can't be wrong. I have some and am stating them here. But a part of me just wonders if nostalgia has a way of overriding one's sense when it comes to music. I know I used to bark on and on about Taking Back Sunday's "Tell All Your Friends" and other debut releases as being the best by that particular artist and the benchmark for which all subsequent releases should be judged. I now see this as a youthful error. You can't simply judge something against something else. Why? Because they are different things! Of course it's okay to admit that you enjoyed one thing more than the other, but saying that one thing sucks because it wasn't like another is moronic.

That being said, I'll say that Welcome Home Armageddon is good. Do I like it as much as Hours? No. Memory and Humanity? No. Tales? Not even close. Casually? Yeah, I'd say I like Welcome a tad more. But to compare this album to any of those would be to inadvertently admit to one's lack of ability to provide a clear, honest judgment. This album must be judged on what it is. And here's what it is, in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars FFAF fan not convinced May 30, 2011
By mr.e
Format:Audio CD
FFAF's established fanbase allows them to register with ratings above 3 out of five stars for this album. Where as any new band on this scene releasing this album would have a hard time getting such rave reviews. It's like FFAF fans are just relieved that they have something new to further wipe the memory of Tales For Themselves from their brain.

FFAF have released some legendary stuff in the past, do a great live show and are all humble, nice guys in real life and I feel this has influenced some of the reviews of this album to rate higher than it should. The awesomeness of tracks 2, 3, 5 and 6 disguise the averageness of the other tracks on the album.

If you listen to this FFAF album and are satisfied then your expectations of these guys are low as this album sounds like what lots of other bands are releasing.

This band is capable of incredible highs but also mediocre lows. This inconsistency happens from album to album and also from song to song on the same album. Read more
