5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait, June 7, 2011
This review is from: With Shivering Hearts We Wait (Audio CD)
This album is a return to greatness. That's not to say it sounds like "old" Blindside, but it just means the band is back to making a full album of amazing songs. The Great Depression was decent, but it was not up to their previous standard of excellence. After 6 years and a few delays, it's clear the band did not want to make that mistake again. Mission Accomplished.

Old fans be warned - there are some "poppier" sounding tracks on here. I'm sure that will catch a few off guard, but once you get used to the change, you'll realize the songs are still great. For the most part, Blindside has always been a band with melody in it's core, it's just a bit more evident on this album. Christian is a bit more selective with his screams, but he doesn't abandon them completely. Let's be honest - a dude with a voice as amazing as this shouldn't be focused on screaming anyway...leave that to the guys who have already destroyed their vocal chords.

They take some new turns WSHWW, but not at the expense of song quality. In an age where most new modern rock records don't take any chances (and leave me disappointed), Blindside shows us how to evolve without completely abandoning our roots. The production is outstanding, the song structures are unique, and Christian's vocals have never been more on point. I've been dying to hear a great new rock record, and this one fits the bill. This goes up as one of my favorites of 2011.
