Motionless In White: When Love Met Destruction

Sound — 10
This album is amazing all around. Lets start with the vocals. Chris' screams and regular singing is amazing. His harsh screams will never grow old. Then TJ does an amazing song of singing in basically every song that he sings in. TJ's vocals are much like the singers from The Devil Wears Prada, which are excellant. Lets go to guitars and bass now. Many of the songs on the album have great guitar riffs in them, including the amazing tapping that some songs include. There are also many awesome breakdowns. The drums are also phenominal, especially in Billy in 4C Never Saw It Coming. The drum intro is really cool to listen to. The keys are also awesome. The keyboard riff in To Keep From Getting Burned is great.

The lyrics for these songs are amazing. To Keep From Getting Burned has such an awesome chorus for lyrics, being 'Everything that you ever loved, will be taken away the moment you shut your eyes. Of all the things I've ever done, the worst has been the past few months, it's hard to keep from getting burned, when love is like fire.'. Those lyrics are amazing in everyway. a lot of the lyrics make you think sometimes too, like from Ghost In The Mirror' choros 'So tell me dear, can your heart still break, if it already stopped beating? '. The lyrics go along with the music perfectly too from the way Chris and TJ decided to sing/scream it.

Overall Impression — 10
This band deserves to be huge, rather then where they are now. They have been included on a Top 100 Bands you should know about, and in my opinion, every fan of punk, screamo, metal, death metal, and even rock should know about these guys. Some very impressive songs (my favorite) from this album have to be To Keep From Getting Burned and Ghost In The Mirror. Both songs are hardcore and awesome and fast-paced, but also meaningful. These guys are also amazing in concert and it's a must to see them. They are some of the nicest guys you will ever talk to, and some of the most awesome guys to see on stage.
