If anyone is still crying "Underoath went soft" after the first seconds of "In Regards To Myself" (which sounds like some sort of Norma Jean meets As Cities Burn monstrosity), then I have to question what indeed is the definition of "soft?" "Define The Great Line" is a record that truly brings together every single piece of Underoath's sound. The melodic side. The aggressive. The Emotional. Every spectrum of sound is covered. It's almost as if they went back and took a little bit from every single album they've put out, and just created one giant masterpiece.
So enough of the high praise. I can just tell you flat out, this album is golden. No matter when you became an Underoath fan, you're going to like this record. It has everything.Read more ›
Let's go back for a second. They're Only Chasing Safety...Underoath unavoidably set a standard for themselves and fans alike, the only concern following that release was, how in the hell are they going to top themselves, let alone be reinventive in a fast-deteriorating genre filled with hopeless lyrical "insight" and overproduced material that generates undeserved attention.
We all fear a band like this selling out big time and becoming the next casualty to mainstream, essentially supressing any notion of talent these guys actually have. Fortunate for us however, they shattered their own conception of hardcore/screamo (whatever you wanna call it), and produced this fine piece of work that almost qualifies on the boundary of a concept album.
Define The Great Line is what happens when you realize that moving backwards is necessary to move forward. The songwriting is stronger, the technical composition is far more unearthed and complex than any of us could have imagined. The level of experimental elements is no match for The Changing Of Times, though it comes damn close with lenghty interludes and instrumentals that serve siginificant purposes found in the meat of the album.
UO is becoming increasingly sharper with their craft, which is far more than most bands out there could say. They've taken the road less traveled in order to push their sound into a theamatic/cinematic state with intelligent songwriting (ie: Thrice, Thursday) that requires more than just a glance at the liner notes.Read more ›
And, on an even more level than personal style issues and the inability to earn points as a good scenester, I start listening to Underoath's new album, Define the Great Line, and began to fear that I've become "that guy." Any music aficionado of any real substance knows exactly the guy I'm talking about (Rob, Dick, & Barry make merciless fun of one of these guys in High Fidelity, both book & movie versions). He's the older and intelligent, yet subtly mocked, geezer who constantly says things like, "Oh, I used to listen to them back when they were [insert band's previous style here]," or "Oh, I like their old stuff better.Read more ›

I listened to this album for the first time, really listened to it, after I was shown a video of Kaleidoscope, a live performance in the early 2000's. Read morePublished 12 months ago by M. Augusto
I grew up on this band and I STILL listen to this album all the time. To me, this album defines the sound of the mid-2000s rock/metal scene. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Brett
