When I first heard bring me the horizon, I hated it, with a pashion. I thought I had never heard so much sh*t. That was from there EP, "This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For". This was until a friend of mine recommended I purchase "count Your Blessings". I did, and on first play, I wasn't a fan. As time progressed, so did my love for this album. And it is now one of my favourite albums currently around. Instrumentally, Bring Me The Horizon are simply mindblowing.
Lyrics — 5
I am not a massive fan of screamo, although I do listen to it alot. Oli Sykes is a good screamer, but I am not a fan of his high-pitched screaming. This, in my view, is the one down side to Bring Me The Horizon. The lyrics, on the other hand, are amazing. Each song is deeply meaningful, and something people can relate to. The lyrics fit in perfectly with the music itself.
Overall Impression — 7
Out of the few well known hardcore screamo bands, Bring Me The Horizon are probably the best around. There are few bands around, if any, that can match BMTH's amazing instrumental ability. The stand out songs are "Pray For Plagues", "A Lot Like Vegas", "Black & Blue", "(I Used To Make Out With) Medusa" and "Off The Heezay". If I lost this album, I would definately purchase it again.
