Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the fourth album from the Canadian Pop/Punk quartet. The band began life as Pezz, releasing one album in the '90s before changing their name in 2001 to Billy Talent and finally landing a record contract. The band has gone on to achieve an enormous amount of success with their first three albums, both in their native country and in Europe.

What else can I say? Every song on this album is great. Some just hit you in the face with how awesome they are. I loved Billy Talent I and II, and I liked III (it wasn't bad by any means, I just honestly liked the first two a little better).

But this album, it's just got so much energy, all the songs are catchy, and I can't stop listening to it. Like usual BT, the lyrics are quite insightful and well-written. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD, you will not regret it.

So, I was recently (in the last 2 months) was introduced to Billy Talent... I know, I know... Anyway, INSTANT OBSESSION! I now own every album, and though I do have favorite songs on each album I really have true love for every album. I can't really choose favorites. They all have a flavor I can't live without. Trust me- Just buy it.

I've been enjoying this album for a few months now and love it. What I like most about this album is you can listen to a track off of "Billy Talent" and then jump right into this album and it all sounds right together. Some bands have a distinctly different sound and feel between their old and new work but Billy Talent has stayed great without changing their sound over the years.

Can they get any better? Well, probably, with Fear Of Heights. But the music slays. The vocals are edgy and the bass lines, as usual, stand out exquisitely. This is my favorite band and I just wish they'd tour the US!

I was excited to hear the new album after all the reviews saying how amazing it was. Billy Talent is my favorite band, and have been since the first day I heard "Try Honesty". The truth is they have never bested their first album, actually they havnt come close. The worst part is that the best songs on this album very closely resemble remakes of some of their past songs (so much so that after hearing them, I began singing the lyrics to older songs that the melodies matched). After listening to this CD a few times through, I had the urge to put in Billy Talent I - All the comments mention how mature the bands sound has become, and how much they have evolved, yet to me, any of these songs could have appeared on their first album and would have fit in and sounded just the same. Also, lyric content seems very similar. When I think of a band evolving and maturing, I think of my second favorite band Brand New, who have certainly matured from album to album.

Wow! I haven't been able to not listen to this on a daily basis! Amazing album. One reviewer said it punched him in the face. Absolutely true. This thing comes out punching and rarely lets up. Been a fan of Billy Talent for a while now. I'm already waiting for their next album. Could be a long wait.

While their sound on this album may be altered a bit from their last two or three albums, their lyricism, messages and musicianship remain top-notch. Overall, I think this is as good as II, my favorite album of theirs. I've always loved the drums on the previous albums because they seemed to have their own melody (a la "Fallen Leaves) and not just drive the song along. On this album, they seem to have been pulled back a bit into more of a "keep the beat with some fun stuff thrown in" role. Guitars go from chugging to off beat accents to solos and everything is awesome. The singing is the unique voice as always and the harmonies are as good as ever. It's always great to have a punk singer who can, ya know, sing.

Song breakdown!

1) Lonely Road to Absolution - Fitting introduction. Sets the tone for the rest of the album. Epic feeling and leads directly into...

2) Viking Death March - A quintessential "speak your mind and fight the power" song. Great music and powerful lyrics "You preach about love/And teach about fate/But all your beliefs are still rooted in hate/". Will definitely be a crowd favorite (it was the single, after all).

3) Surprise, Surprise - This is their "don't buy into the mainstream crap" song like "Where is the Line". Very, very catchy.

4) Running Across the Tracks - Unique sounding song, not like anything else on the album. More screaming, more accenting instruments instead of a steady melody. Very fun song to sing along with in the car and headbang with.

5) Love Was Still Around - This song took a while to warm up to, but once you read the lyrics, you'll get the message and the song will stick with you. It's directed at an unnamed person who commits a mass shooting and asking them if they regret it.

Billy Talent is an amazing band and this is an awesome album. Its not as fast as their other albums , but the songs that are slower have an Epic feel to them, I highly recommend this album to any Billy Talent fan or fans of Punk rock in general.
