Editorial Reviews

Urgent, aggressive, and remarkably cathartic, Let The Ocean Take Me is The Amity Affliction at their most vital best. Recorded by producer Will Putney (Winds Of Plague, Upon A Burning Body) at guitarist Troy Brady s Evergreen Studios in Brisbane, the album pushes the band s signature post-hardcore approach to new heights of richness and diversity, providing the consummate aural partner to vocalist Joel Birch s increasingly more potent lyricism. Inspired in part by a near death experience suffered during 2013's Vans Warped Tour, songs like "Don t Lean On Me" and "FML" are fueled by desperate emotion and intense anxiety but achieve extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and raw power.

This album continues the band into the direction of finding their niche and it sounds good. This go around Joel and Ahren's vocals have defiantly improved in a good way on this album. Especially in Joel's Unclean/Harsh vocal performance. Below I have broken out my review on a track by track bases.

1. Pittsburgh - 10/10 - Starts off with a very slow ambient intro that I did not expect but sounds good. The intro then leads into the all so familiar voice of Joel Birch. The song structure include the routine back and forth between Harsh/Clean vocals, with a very melodic chorus with possibly the most memorable lyrics in a chorus I have heard from them. Then finally leading into a youth choir singing the chorus which is a nice touch.
2. Lost and Fading - 8/10 - This also has another notably catchy chorus, with an ambient break down the leads into some techno/electronic instrumental support but not enough to take anything away from the track.
3. Don't Lean On Me - 9/10 - This song starts off with a very beautiful classic piano intro. The song structure after this is very well standard to the genre but in a good way. The song also calls upon violin and piano for the entirety of the track.
4. The Weigh Down - 8/10 - This intro also rely on a piano intro but in a much different way. The intro could be straight out of the 90's pop hand book. Some vocal break ups and electronic beats and breakdowns can be noted on this song, but again in a very small portion as to not feel over bearing.
5. Never Alone - 8/10 - Another piano intro but this time assisted by the rest of the band. Some special effects assist this song throughout. This song has a very uplifting and soft feeling/flow to it with Ahrens's clean vocals defiantly outshining here.

Not being a huge fan of metal core/ screamo with only death metal style vocals and no melodies or any melodic transitions or sounds, The Amity Affliction have been able to write melodic songs while never losing a second of aggression. The balance between the vocalists Ahren Stringe and Joel Birch are a thing of sonic beauty. They have solid song writing skills, able to have fluid transitions, spot on dynamics, and simple but very effective bridges. Being a drummer, Ryan Burt ties the whole band together and shines like the sun on this album. I really dig the whole ocean/water concept and this album translates for both heavy metal or post hardcore fans. Simply stated, this is a must have album! Oh and this band deserves to have this CD bought and not downloaded (freely/illegally), smell what I'm sprayin?

I usually don't like this genre of music but these guys are incredible and really standout from all other metalcore bands. The screams are extremely killer while the clean parts are very powerful. Great album it's a must have.

Their best Album yet! Show your support and buy a copy! Also if you like this band check out the band Famous Last Words! They have a couple albums out and are a band that needs to become more heard about!

The album deserves 5 stars but my case came broken and it doesn't even close and the CD holder is broken too. The Amity Affliction is very good, this album however is so figgin awesome! If you haven't heard any from this album just listen to some samples but it's definitely worth it.

... but most of the singles (excluding Pittsburgh) do this album no justice. The best pieces are scattered throughout the album so listen through it all. Anyways, I thought, overall, the album was a very solid release, but the first half of the album was a little lacking to me. Don't let that deter you, though, because I hold this band to pretty high standards considering how much I enjoyed the past two albums. The latter half picks up fine, so I do not believe this album was a flop at all. Personally, I liked Chasing Ghosts a little more, especially the digital special edition tracks, and I like to see the band has not changed much. They rock the hoarse-verse/clean-chorus combo better than any band I can think of. This is not groundbreaking work (thus only 4 stars), but absolutely worth a listen.

'Let the Ocean Take Me" is a great record that follows the heart and soul of past albums while exploring them in new ways, both lyrically and musically. Each track has a special sense of emotion and heart, while most maintain the hard rocking metalcore style that has made the Amity Affliction so famous. If you're looking for comparison, I would say that the album sounds more like Chasing Ghosts than Youngbloods, but in no way is that disappointing. The first track, "Pittsburgh" is among my favorites on the album as well as the "Death Hands","Don't Lean on Me" and the final track, "Give it All" which adds in some gang vocals. While i still think Youngbloods is their best work, this album is excellent throughout and definitely worth listening to for any fan of the band's previous work.

To be honest: not a bad performance from the band(pretty standard continuation of the progression/evolution of "their" style)
Rather heavy handed yet somehow both well thought out and catchy lyrics and songwriting. The band really played around to find new grooves to stray out of that apparently weakening "chug" concept that is apparently being shed in favor of a lighter pop brand which, is not necessarily a bad thing in this situation.
Where I think the album suffered is primarily in the mixing and mastering. The problem with adapting that pop sound is that the inspiration used when mastering is also adopted from current mainstream pop. Current mainstream pop favors the use of compression as a way of increasing the "perceived" loudness of the music or more specifically the instruments, the vocals, and my god the drums...oh dear the drums were the most compressed of all. BEWARE OF EARBUDS when listening to this album as listening to it too loud may cause hearing loss. I assure you, it's louder than you think it is.
