Ordinanry, generic, and uninspired. Not worth an 8.
Overrated, shit, generic, trl-core shit. Century Media had to have threatened to have a hit put out on the lambgoat's collective families for you guys to have given this shit an 8. Reviews like this one represent everything that sucks about music.
Nice one but no, I will be reviewing the new Haunted and Diecast albums and neither will get more than a 6.
it's a good album, for my 9.99 it was worth it.
I like the album, but im not going to rush out to buy it. P.S. when you're talking about openers, try to metion the actual opener, "the light that blinds", the best song on the album.
Obviously you are incapable of understanding implied facts: "The excellent opener "Idle Hands" set a tone for The Art Of Balance that did not accurately deliver on its initial promise, but that is not in question here on their new album" and voila your p.s. suggestion is granted.
"trl-core"? yes, because i see shadows fall on there all the f*cking time, and they are oh-so pop. its this type of elitist tripe that give online music discussion such a bad name.
i already bought this album beofre, i think it was called art of balance.......nothing new here, a waste of money and time
Good review!! This album is way better than I thought it would be, Im glad this band is back on track.
This album along with the new Lamb of God are awesome, the only kids i hear complaining are the kids who are fans of shit bands like Converge and Throwdown who dont know good metal
It is very obvious that those of you calling this album "generic", or comparing it to Art of Balance, are not musicians. The songwriting is so far beyond anything they've done in the past. Did you people actually LISTEN to this album?
P.S. I'm so f*cking sick of people trashing a band for doing something they love (and doing it very well i might add), when there is no way in hell they could they could write songs even remotely as good. If they could we would be reading their bands review instead. f*cking children dont even deserve to listen to this calibur of album
Yeah alot of these dorks listen to shitty bands like Bleeding Through, Throwdown, (new) Killswitch Engage, Eighteen Visions or As I Lay Dying and then have the balls to call Shadows Fall generic.
makes generic comment about how anyone that disses a band and has a different opinion listens to the typical garbage and their opinion is void

no, they don't even listen to those bands some of you mentioned, they listen to the most obscure bands and consistently say "this band is my fav" then next week, it's a new band. And once one of their "old favorites" gets popular, to the least extent.....that said band becomes "gay", "lame", etc etc. it happens with EVERY band. 9 times out of 10, the kid doing the retarded comments is still in high school.
8 out of 10 times I'd say that 8 out of 10 lambgoat ratings are too high.
This album has been put out 20 times over by Swedish bands ten years ago.
yeah, they sure aren't original, but i sure as hell don't give a damn. clones of shit that was great is still great. they rock like metallica, in flames, and testament rocked (well, testament still rocks last i checked), so i enjoy them.
Shadows fall is a talented band that isn't doing anything original. They don't stand out at all above this annoying fad of melodic metalcore. The incessant shredding gets old quickly and there really aren't any catchy or moving riffs or songs amongst any of the material they've released. Totally disposable band.
same old shadows fall sound nothing new. waste of a cd Id say
The people that are ripping on this don't listen to 18v or Atreyu. That one duder was right, they listen to obscure bands that don't make dull, uninspired drivel like this. They listen to bands that make unique music that isn't made for the sake of getting on Headbanger's Ball.
Original or not, this album is great. Those of you who hate this album don't know good metal.
yes obscure crap, either montonous drone crap like khanate or slow, boring "ambient" non-metal like neurosis or old man gloom. i like my metal to bring the rock, not the nap. shadows fall is totally inspired, just because its on mtv once a week you dumbasses feel the need to knock it.
shadows are ace. stop the bickering, you are all putting casting on metal... stop it. "This album has been put out 20 times over by Swedish bands ten years ago." ^^^ no mate, i think that would most likely be 20 albums that sounded like it. i dont think killswitch are generic either... no more so than your own soul.
