Can we just sit here and agree that this new album is amazing! After 8 years of waiting we finally have new material and bringing back many memories that we had growing up with them.
Underoath is back with a new album after a break. How does it stack up? This album is sure to split audiences for a couple reasons. First if has a couple songs with profanity. As a band that formally was claimed for everyone’s version of Christianity in the past, this causes problems for those who see certain letter crossing ones lips as black and white sin. For this group, this is selling out, lyrics are trash, and immature. I’m not really concerned with this opinion because I fundamentally disagree and feel it’s, ironically, a shallow immature view of music and art (not to mention a genre of music who’s entire point is to emphasize emotion realistically). The group that might dislike this that may have some validity are those looking for more hardcore heavy music. This album isn’t soft. The formation of the music is still pretty heavy but it doesn’t have as much screaming vocals as past albums. Four or five of the 11 tracks might be considered scream heavy, and even those include some clean vocals. If screaming is your litmus test, I understand why you might not enjoy this. The final generalized group that I fall into is the one that appreciates this for what it is. It’s incredible album with interesting lyrics given the places most of the members are at now. What’s more, it still sounds like Underoath. “Natural progression” has been thrown about and I think that fits. It’s still heavy, complicated, etc. I actually found the last (heavier) album sort of boring and this one very interesting. Screaming isn’t the sum of their musical talent (although I get if that’s what you’re looking for). Overall this was a pretty good album I’ll be listening to for a bit.
The style of their songs are different and I like it. It has a lot of singing and less growls/screams which is not bad.
I’m not feeling these songs at all.
The best comeback album I’ve heard. Progressed their music style just enough. Well done!!! A must buy!!!
This band went soft.
Christians need to take it easy with this “left your faith” mumbojumbo. Music is music. It’s a band and the band doesn’t consist of just one person. Collectively they are a group of dudes that like to write music. If individually they have their own belief structure then fine but Christians who are crucifying them for swearing or presenting the message they are delivering on this album need to take a step back and ask themselves “who is being the real Christian?” Musically, it’s different. It’s certainly matured and seems to be more along the lines of Sleepwave and Bring Me the Horizon. I’m listening with an open mind but I was honestly hoping for the Underoath of old. I will still support them because I always have. Lastly, maybe the reasons Christians are so bothered by the evolution of Underoath is because the Christians reviewing this are also struggling w their own fundamentalism.
Good album solid songs
It's a different direction for Underoath. There's some really great songwriting and the last 4 tracks are amazing!
