This is MMF's crowning achievement. Their other albums range from "good" to "ok" (granted, this is just my opinion), but Unconditional is an auditory masterpiece. One of those rare albums you can listen to from beginning-to-end without skipping a single track.

This beautiful record by one of the elite metalcore bands on the scene not only impresses but proves further that Memphis May Fire has tremendous talent, creative vision, and a unique take on a constantly generic music scene. This record exemplifies their strengths and improves on the weaknesses from their previous records. This record has more of an atmospheric presence with the inclusion of symphonic elements and the increasing use of electronic effects (that don't intrude on the music itself).

Memphis May Fire stays true to its form, great metalcore songs with catchy hooks, heavy breakdowns, and uplifting/powerful lyrics and messages. This record has much more of a religious undertone which is different from previous records which in my opinion, might upset out atheist friends out there. Myself, I'm not religious but I believe in positivity which I think is the most important way to interpret the lyrics on this record. A few songs that have a very strong undertone are "The Rose", "Divinity", and "No Ordinary Love", all of which are great songs.

The musicianship is top notch as it always is. Jake's drums are as potent as ever, lots of double-bass, lots of breakdown beats and drops. Jake has a crafty ability to make every song energetic and exciting which should make every MMF fan very happy. Kellen's lead guitars are strong, the riffs are exciting, some of the breakdown riffs are mind-boggling. The bass adds great effect in many songs adding lots of depth and darkness. Matty's vocals are stronger than ever, his screams are fiercer, his cleans are more distinct, have a greater range and much more exhilarating. The electronics add a lot, I'm not against electronics but I do believe that it often interferes with the actual music. Memphis May Fire makes sure this doesn't happen and they put just enough. On songs like "Speechless" and "Need to Be" which are structured around electronics are actually quite amazing and well established and don't dwell within the electronics.

Overall, the songs are some of the catchiest and hardest hitting songs in their catalogue. They range from "love of god" to "fan appreciation" to "depression/anxiety" and "love for one another". The messages are always positive and uplifting. My personal favorites are "Speechless", "Sleepless Nights", "Beneath the Skin", "Divinity", and "The Rose" but as I said, all the songs are amazing. There are no fillers, it's just constantly good music. I highly recommend this record to metalcore fans and all MMF fans. Enjoy.

Saw these guys at Van's Warped Tour in 2015 and just had to get this. It has a few extra songs than on the original and is a great compilation from this post-hardcore group. Would love to see these guys again as the singer can scream and go soft on his voice with confidence!

The album has a very similar vibe and sound of their last album, which has its pros and cons. Pros is that their other albums were amazing so this one matches and that they are not a sell out. Sticking to their original sound. Cons is that it sounds the same. if you heard their old album, this one sounds similar. I know that the pros and cons contradict each other but that is just the way it seems to me.

A good inspirational CD for those who like rock. Here's a lyric from one of the songs..."I don't know what the future holds but I know who holds it and it's beautiful."

MMF most certainly carries a common sound, but there intensity sets them apart from your Asking AL types. The singer has a very common sound in the mainstream industry, all the same not bad at all. So to wrap it up, Tight mainstream bottomline. "None" of the band members should quit there day job.

Love this band. There are no surprises here, but I didn't demand any. Their style suits them fine, and they do it better than most of their peers. Their next album--I may look forward to a change of pace.
