Watch Out! shows a side of Alexis that will likely never be seen again. With their 2nd album - of which is noticebly less raw, an artistic, atmospheric side is shown. Long intro's and outro's that could paint pictures in your mind are revealed, group chants are sung, and their first hint of showing a melodic side is revealed in No Transitory. Another large difference between this album and that of other Alexisonfire albums is that each instrument is equally heard, the bass, the guitars, and the drums, aswell as the vox. All equally representing yet still meshing together to make an amazing sound. Also to be noted is Dallas' emergance as one of Canada's greatest singers.

This is definetly not the bands best show of lyrics, however it is not terible. there is both good and... well, different. Songs such as Accidents display in beauty one's mournign of being in a hospital where a polar opposite is shown in Hey Mama! It's Your Funeral as a Go-Kart race is told. Don't count on it for anything more than mediocre however.
Overall Impression — 9
This album shows the sort of progression any band would dream of seeing, and yet it will go, for the most part, unnoticed despite it's amazing sense of artistic ability. This is and forever will be the dark-horses of their album. It is the one people will turn a blind eye to, that shows emotion and climax's not through what's their - but for what is not through the general feeling of the music, and not for a moment should one doubt this to be their best album, or at least to date.
