Now come on you have to appreciate a band that will scream, and growl its guts out. As I lay dying is on the forefront of hardcore music and they are good at what they do. Tim is able to scream his way through the whole album and I believe he even has some clean vocals in a couple of songs so he can sing. Also this band is known for Jordan, their drummer who is able to use his double bass in a way that I have never heard. In the first song "94 hours" Jordan has a breakdown with the double bass and it is incredible how fast he is. People try to say he used triggers in the studio but I disagree because I saw them live and Jordan did that double bass part live so he is actually playing that fast. That my friends is incredible. I also appreciate that As I lay dying can be brutal and not use profanity or use sexual overtones. Their lyrics are nice and clean and they are still brutal. Tim is able to go from the lowest of growls to a high pitched scream which I love to hear. If you ever get a chance to see these guys live then do yourself a favor and do see them. They are incredible live. The other member of the rhythm section, the bass player is able to hold is own with Jordan and the two guitarists are pretty good, but Jordan steals the show. What is incredible is that these guys are still very young. They still have a lot of room to grow and get better with their instruments which is scary for other hardcore musicians. Watch out America As I lay dying is a force to not be reckoned with. Give them a listen. God bless.

Though The Beginning, Collision and the Elegy have a lot in common, this album is absolutely brilliant. Those who find it "repetitive" are yet to be sensitized to very clever variations in rhythm (IMHO). Tim was an absolute master in terms of fashioning the sound behind AILD. Sorry, but Wovenwar just screams to have have Tim back. It is empty without him.

I don't judge Tim or anyone's music by his or her personal life. That is why I like Ted Nugent too I guess. But I did read one of Tim's last interviews, and I admired his courage in admitting he went wrong. That aside, the sound he fashioned is absolutely memorable and unprecedented. And this album in particular introduced me to "metalcore." Wow!!! Thanks Tim, Nick and all. You made my day on this one. Yet, I wish Nick, brilliant guitarist himself, had not said such emotional things about Tim. Tim made Nick I feel.

This is one brutal cd. Not many clean vocals through the CD, most of it is all screaming. 94 Hours has to be my favorite song, followed by Forever. But the songs do get repetitive after a while. Has some replay value, though the listener may get bored after a while. All in all this is a great band and in the boundaries of Christian music it's one of the best.

first off thier are alot of people who call these guys rip off's or poser's or just a band that can't play at all. They are very very wrong. Frail words collapse is one of the best metal albums out there. Yes it is a metal ablum not a F*CKING HARDCORE ALBUM. Every song has break downs which fit very nicely into the the out of control music. 94 hours is by far one of the best tracks on the cd it's very fast paced with a few breakdowns and the drum work by Jordan mancino is incredible. Believe me this is not a bad album as other people review it to be. Their just death metal fans. And death metal f*cking blows by the way. But anyways.

This cd is just one of the best. alot of songs stand out from each other thier is maybe at least one similar aspect to them but they drift far from one another. falling upon deaf ears has some nice guitar work on it and yes the riff is just killer.

Forever has to be one of the best songs on the album. the lead singer has some of the best vocal's you can hear. Very clear instead of your averge whinny ass screaming that sounds like the guy was kicked in the nuts. Trust me as i lay dying may seem like a emo band but thier not if you just understand thier backround then you will know thier not. Buy this cd it's f*cking sweet. every song kicks ass.

I can't stress the greatness of this CD. For starters it's a death metal group, so the songs sound somewhat alike but if you're like me and am a hardcore music listener you'll probably pick out the differences eventually.
I guess I'll do a run down of the songs.
1.94 Hours- their single and an excellent song, about a minute and a half in there is an awesome guitar/drum combo. And I ask myself how can the drum player play double bass like that?
2.Falling Upon Deaf Ears-A decent song, nothing really stands out but it was enjoyable. No complaints here.
3.Forever-Excellent song, I just love the chorus, this song is on the Headbanger's ball Album. Fast and it sticks.
4.Collision-Not sure what to say here except a fantastic song, very good lyrics (but of course they all have excellent lyrics)
5.Distance is Darkness-Basically the only song with "clean vocals" it's short, and the sort of punk sounding vocals at the end add the right touch to the song.
6.Behind me lies another fallen Soldier-Starts off slow but of course gets heavy. About giving everything for someone.
7.Undefinded-One of my favorites, starts off heavy and sorta has the same sound as a few of the others but about 1 or so in he screams "I long for this wind to cease" and they break down into one of the most badass riffs I've ever heard. Keeper
8.A thousand steps-This is a prett good song, it's short and simple.
9.The Beginning-Another favorite, I like the sort of punk guitar beginning and then switching to a rock sort of riff and overall it just works. I kept saying to myself "wow what is the name of this song?"
10.Song 10-Probably the lightest song on the album. The first 2 and a half minutes is instrumental and then it explodes with Tim screaming. A favorte.
