Plenty of bands like to yammer on about how their newest record is a “return to their roots,” as if some undiscovered brilliance is to be found and resurrected on early demos and basement jam sessions. But the in case of ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (or Trail of Dead from here on out, because who really wants to type all that over and over), a return to form could ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The lesson of this album--which is by no means unenjoyable in its use of loud-soft-loud dynamics and psychedelic guitar textures--is that the art-rock of the future is apparently not so different from the art-rock of the past. This band used to sounding an awful lot like late ‘80s Sonic Youth, and you can't blame them for wanting to try something new, but does it have to sound like a screamo take on the Moody Blues? It’s easy to imagine the members of this Austin-based act resplendent in ELP-style capes as they sing the bombastic, gospel choir-backed ditty "All White." Then again, the group samples "We Did It Again" by British prog pioneers the Soft Machine at the end of that particular song, as if to say that not only are those who don’t know the past doomed to repeat it, but those who do, as well. --Mike McGonigal

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS NOW February 28, 2005
By abc
Format:Audio CD
I just randomly decided to get this one day and I'm so glad I did. Best way to explain this would be indie punk, I think. I rarely give anything 5 stars (the only thing that comes to mind is arcade fire, and even that isnt as good as this). I love every single song on this ablum and that is extremely rare. I like the way that they know how and when to go loud rock/soft rock. Track by track? Ok...

1. Ode to Isis

GREAT introduction to the CD. Having an almost gothic instrumental to begin with then proceding to a scream and at the very end getting a womans voice saying "And you will know us by the trail of dead" is just fantastic.

2. Will You Smile Again?

FANTASTIC drums. Great, great, great drums. Having the singing start half way through the song is very cool indeed. Catchy too. I love this guys voice, I've gotta say.

3. Worlds Apart

Second best song on the album (imo). Loving the "candy store of ours" bit. Lovely lyrics. Everything about this song is great.

4. Summer of '91

Good use of the soft/loud technique, nice to sing along to.

5. Rest Will Follow

Third best song on the album (imo). This was the first song I loved on the whole album. The "...well I knooow, how the best will fall. And the rest will follooow..." bit was stuck in my head for days. Great drums.

6. Caterwaul

GREAT drums. This is the worst song on the album, yet it is still fantastic.

7. Classic Arts Showcase

This song sounds a bit like Incubus (early Incubus, that is). Damn I love this guys voice.

8. Let It Dive

BEST song on the album (imo). I love its simpleness and subtlety. The lyrics are nice as well. Alos, the pretend ending is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Afraid of change you are March 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think the reason a lot of people were let down by "Worlds Apart" is that they were expecting "Source Tags & Codes". Truly the mark of a great band is their ability to let style evolve without loseing the original appeal that made them popular. After all, If you're just going to make the same album over and over, What's the point? Where's the risk? I for one love were Trail of Dead's music is going and am looking forward to future releases from them. So F**k what ya heard about "Worlds Apart" and give it a chance you wanker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Work March 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Like many others, the song that really got stuck in my head from this album was "The Rest Will Follow." You've probably heard it making its rounds on the radio, with it's catchy refrain and cool drum licks. As good as this song is, the rest of the album soars higher. This is one of the few albums I have recently purchased that I DIDN'T later regret... I can't imagine anyone being anything but pleased with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not good at writing reviews so... February 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to make this short.

This is a good collection of songs (IMO).

Upon 1st listening, "will you smile again?" kind of threw me off about a minute and 27 seconds in (b/c it changes so drastically), but after that initial listen, it was all good. I have been listening to this thing non-stop for about a week. I love it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid band gets better and better March 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just listened to this album for the first time and I really dig it. Their first two albums were ok, Source Tags & Codes was awesome and this one is also quite excellent with no dud tracks at all. Awesome production quality and the best sounding vocals so far. Love the variety of different instruments they use throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slender is the word August 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The band has now wholeheartedly embraced the pomp of prog rock without the pretense of Mars Volta. You might think, hey.. dude.. theres a waltz on here, well just don't think about that. Their songwriting is tight and muscular as an album with bird calls in it can be. It starts with that intro, which I have yet to find one person who didn't think it was awesome. I mean, even the NBA used it, THE NBA. HELL YEAH. Then come the sledgehammer riffs with a layer of shoegaze drone behind them, but always a bit reckless and never perfect. Then Conrad's voice which is pretty not good, but he can sing, if that makes sense. All told, this is nowhere near the masterwork that Source Tags & Codes is, that album didn't overreach with the prettiness, and it was the first true "punk" (UH OH HE SAID PUNK) album I have heard in YEARS. It was rough, raw, and completely nonsensical, it wasn't satisfied to be stuck in three chord dirges or yell and repeat choruses. These guys were going for the moon, and they got there. This is them pulling back from that insanity. Caterwaul, Let it Dive, Worlds Apart, and The Rest will Follow are all great songs. But the dip into power-balladry is unneeded, as is the aforementioned waltz or whatever. But I still love the album, just not as much as I probably should.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOD's best album to date. March 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album marks a major evolution in the bands music. They still have the attitude, but they've added development. All the songs on here are well developed, Many have multiple distinct movements, multiple bridges, and even multiple time signatures. The production has moved up several notches with more different instrumentation and ambient sounds. You'll hear some of the best alternative rock drumming around songs whipping from odd to even time signatures and back again.

In short, it's clear that they put a lot of work into this and I hope to hear more. The band explores a wider range of musical styles than on previous efforts, including classical rock styles reminiscent of Bowie or Pink Floyd. They could have made another "Source Tags & Codes" (and you can hear it still there) but everyone would have said that "their albums all sound alike". I think they pushed the envelope but in general hit the ball out of the park. More bands need to work as hard as this.

Great for insomnia. This is awful at it's best. It drones on and on but has no life. I paid a dollar for this and overpaid!

If you haven't listened to Source Tags and Codes, be sure to pick that album up first. This one is still really great, but the best moments are relatively few and far between. Read more

It might be slightly better than So Divided (but not much difference). Lots of strong, powerful rhythm. Anthems mix with melodies. Emotion stays strong. Read more
