Sound — 10
Amazing album. I have the full ADTR discography and I've been blown away with all of their work. I'm a big hardcore/deathcore fan so something with singing is a huge change for me but ADTR blends the singing and screaming to a point where I'm comfortable playing it through the car stereo. Homesick is another masterpiece from ADTR. "Mr. Highway's... " breakdown is the heaviest I've heard in awhile. Also some very nice upbeat happier sounding songs like "I'm made of wax.." and "Homesick". I also LOVED the acoustic song featuring the girl from Versa Emerge I beleive. I've listened to it the most of the whole album. Great build up and catchy lyrics. MY favorite song of the album would have to be "Mr. Highway's Thinking About The End". Nice clean opening which leads into a crushing riff that just adds to the rest of the song. And like I said the breakdown is completly epic. My least favorite song would have to be "Homesick". Just didn't like it.
Lyrics — 10
Lyrics are great.Love all the pre-breakdown lyrics like "Disrespect your surrondings" and "This is the battleground". A day to remember does a nice job of incorprating both meaningful and loving lyrics with dark and scary lyrics. Jeremy has an amazing voice. Love it.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall impression is simply an amazing album. Love it. Highly recommend it. I got it leaked a couple weeks before it came out but if I have a chance I will defintly buy it. It's defintly worth every penny. I sure hope they come out with some more merch though. Haven't seen a lot from them yet.
