Ah, Poison the Well. Every genre needs a band people can easily point to as an indicator of what other bands in the genre should strive for; for hardcore, that bands remains Poison the Well. This is their third release, and their first on a major label. This didn't phase me in the least, because if you've heard their last two albums, it's a pretty safe bet their not changing their style for anyone, and thank God. The only difference I immediately noticed was the sound quality: it is much improved here as compared to "Opposite of December" and "Tear From the Red." This was a wonderous discovery as I first played through this album a while back; now the sound just pummels you and never lets up. Poison the Well still has some of the best vocals in hardcore, period (and this doesn't change from the last two albums). This album mixes more melodic parts in with the screaming (which, as always, is the standard style), and they are placed perfectly (don't think this is all melodic though because they've changed labels...screaming is still the standard style). I couldn't ask for better placement. Poison the Well's lead singer always maintains that he never tries to place the melodic parts in with the heavy parts; it just happens, and it appears so natural it's beautiful.
I actually like the vocals more on this album than the last two. They just seem perfect, and the improved sound quality really brings out his scream (I saw someone compare it to Atreyu, I think this is somewhat okay, but Atreyu's is almost a spoken growl, where this is full-out screaming with a guttural feel). The music is also almost perfect through the whole album. Let's break it down:
The good about "You Come Before You":
Did I mention the vocals? Wow.

Poison the Well's newest release is their fist on a major label, but don't expect to see them to make an appearance on TRL. This album is more dynamic than their others, with more singing and melodic interludes but also harder-hitting guitars and drumming. Also, the vocalist seems to have changed his screaming style; now it seems more like a growl(think of Atreyu). Still the best screaming i've ever heard.
If you've never heard Poison the Well before, don't be surprised by the fact that screaming is the normal vocal style. I bought their first cd a while back and I totally had the wrong impression of them. I thought they would sound a lot like Thursday, mostly melodic with a few really hardcore parts. I could not have been more wrong, because I think this band is heavier than Slipknot with just some melody added in to make it interesting. If you like Thrice, try this band.
If you have heard Poison the Well already, or have one of their cd's then think about it like this. The Opposite of December is thought to be their best album, because it's 28 minutes of heavy, memorable parts. Tear From the Red was a step in a new direction; it was more dynamic but people didn't like it as much because it sounded less inspired. You Come Before You incorporates both the dynamics and the inspiration and is just a great album (their longest yet, 43 minutes).
Just go buy it, you'll be impressed. Let's hope the new Thrice album is as good...

Poison the Well- whether or not you heard of them or listened them before, in my opinion they are simply awesome. Although most of the PTW fans keep moaning 'oh this is emo', 'oh this is softy metalcore crap'. IT ISN'T! Grow up people! great bands like PTW doesnt write or produce music to suit ur restricted music taste. if they did it would only be unoriginal, same old commercialised screamo and hardcore noise. this album clearly tells how styles of music change, feelings change, emotions change. 'you came before you' is more emotional, darker and powerful than their other albums branded 'screamo'. This is post hardcore stuff. read the lyrics of the songs, especially 'apathy is a cold body' which gave me chills!

i listen to mostly hardcore/heavy/metalcore/death metal. i dont think PTW by ANY CHANCE sounds emo. bands like atreyu, bullet for my valentine, etc are emo. when people just label or brand great music to something it totally isn't it insults true fans.

If you like metal, hardcore/post hardcore, screamo then definitely buy this album.

It is so annoying, people always have a little pet cd and when it comes to thier little pet cd there is no better cd. I'm talking about Opposite of December. Everyone who claims to like Poison The Well it seems only likes OOD. OOD is a great record but it always gets in the way of all thier new stuff. PTW did not fall off like all of you say they did. They didn't change their sound, they really came into thier own though you wouldn't admit it. Oh OOD, it so great guys! Poison The Well fell off after OOD. STOP ALREADY! I am tired of people saying they fell off! As I've already stated, this cd is good and it is Poison The Well's best. I said it, it is better than Opposite of December (I spelled it out so there would be not doubt about what I'm saying). They developed thier sound and the production actually doesn't sound like crap this time. So what if they went on a major label? I'm not even going to bother with that, if you actually like music you really don't care about music labels, becuase that's all they are, labels. But no if your more concerned about scene points and looking cool your going to hate Poison the Well, becuase your scene and you don't like bands that are on major labels. Listen to this record, it doesn't suck and if you put your preconceived notions away for I dunno maybe an hour you'd think the same as I. I've spoken my piece get this and prove me wrong.
