"Define The Great Line" is the culmination of everything Underoath began building upon way back when they released their now infamous debut "Act Of Depression." With the mainstream success the band achieved with their previous record ("They're Only Chasing Safety") the pressure to write a record of this sort must have been monsterous. How do you follow the album of your career? Well if there was ever any pressure on Underoath writing this record, one would never know it. The outcome is a furious onslaught of metal, hardcore and screamo that most bands in the same genre can't even contend with. For the older Underoath fans who cried "sellout!" when TOCS hit the airwaves, prepare to be amazed because the band has brought back plenty of their heavier elements, while still keeping the same melodic sensibility that made them so popular with their last outing. "Define The Great Line" is undoubtably destined for good things in 2006.

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.

It's difficult not to sound the slightest bit overzealous when reviewing this album, because let's face it, it's good. Very good.

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.

Here's this - I know that I shouldn't even be listening to this group, since I'm about 7 to 10 years too old and about 75 pounds over the necessary weight required to wear the appropriate uniform that most (if not all) hardcore kids have been wearing for the past couple of years. (It's been a decade since I could fit into 32-waist jeans and a size Medium t-shirt.) Coupled with that sad admission is the one that, whenever I even think about going to any kind of local rock show in my area (whether in Houston itself or in the general north of the city), I have to remind myself how old & out-of-place I'll look amongst all the kids in the crowd. Yes, I do realize that 15- to 18-year-olds really aren't kids, but when you're a decade or more older than a vast majority of the crowd going to see a hardcore show, you feel quite creepy standing next to kids who weigh half of what you do. I guess I should learn to be content with attending indie rock & folk shows - my age & my ears are getting to me.

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.
