5.0 out of 5 stars No Better Band out there., July 16, 2005
By 
This review is from: The City Sleeps In Flames (Audio CD)
The ONLY way to rate this band is to simply listen to the songs. There is really no way to describe what they do - People who have tried just seem to come out sounding silly - "Best emocore in the genre" or even sillier "There is no emocore genre" - "No use for 3 guitars?" - Whatever... (I counted 2 guitars, a base, drums and a keyboard - but what do I know and why would we care?)- I guess this is why the kids have made all of their songs available for free listening before you buy on-line -

If there were a genre for this type of music - I would have said that it's not my genre - I don't particulary like punk or screamo or emo - or 'emocore' - But, there is just something about this band that has me listening again and again - I have found them so facinating that I started searching the reviews to see if someone could explain it for me - I found two quotes that kind of come close - One "This band makes the listener yearn for the apocalypse - So long as they are providing the sound track" I don't know if I am yearning for the apocalypse - I just kind of like that quote -

The other is probably closer to how I feel - goes something like "This isn't my genre - I shouldn't like this music - So why am I still listening to it? - Because, they are more infectious than Ebola!" -

My advice - take a listen - If you like - buy - Check out their live shows - They are truely INTENSE on-stage - Now (Summer 2005) - they are playing throughout the US and Canada on Warped Tour with many venues in between - I hear that they will be playing in the UK next fall or so.
