Following up Hot Damn is no easy task. These guys gave it a shot though, and in my opinion it fell a little short. The vocals and guitars all sound the same and lack the dynamic style of Hot Damn. This makes all the songs sound the same, so if you hear one song and dont like it, chances are you wont like the rest of the album
Back to the roots of rock'n roll every time i die's fourth release "gutter phenomenon" can easitly be described as innovative. A fusion of lightly distorted guitars and innate drumming gives way to what could possably give way to a new movement in contemporary music. "Gutter phenomenon" is a excellent example of progression for this band. Still utalizing their pattented single stroke breakdowns and even bringing back the cow bell shows the band hasn't lost their touch. With a mix of last night
this review just reminded me that i have to check out the new beecher.
it’s proof (as if it were needed) that guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams are two of the most mind-bogglingly inventive guitarists in metal... uhhhhhh...
pure utter f*cking shit -1000000000/0
there's something about this album that just turns me off. i think it's the infusion of cliche melodies (keith sounds like ryan cabrera or something in 'the new black') and the appearance of gerard way. also, i'm not so fond of keiths "vocal growth", i agree with the review, i miss his old "bluesy howls". not a bad record though. 6/10
This came out like a month ago, what the hell have you guy been doing? And the highest this could get is like a 6, its really a meh record.
It's got a few notable parts, but they spread themselves too thin, and make a few too many bad choices. 6/10
I do enjoy this. 7/10 is a fine score. I do miss the young and crazy pretention of "Last Night In Town" and the frenzied pummeling of "Hot Damn!" but this is a nice addition to my collection. Probably one of my favorite bands.
i don't see why hot damn gets so much credit. it was nowhere near as inventive or raw as last night in town. it had it's awesome moments, but it didn't impress me that much. that album is a bit too over-hyped. gutter phenomenon is good. i think a 7 is a fair review, but it is definitely not worse than hot damn. neither are as good as last night in town.
Why don't you suck ETID's c-ck a little more? This is a terrible album, and a firm step backwards from Hot Damn.
every review of this shitty band starts with some mention of their "funny" interviews. these dudes really arent funny at all. shitty band too.
"guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams are two of the most mind-bogglingly inventive guitarists in metal" HAHAHAHAHA 0/10
I firmly enjoy this album and perfectly agree with the review. A solid 7/10.
haven't heard the album, but "Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams are two of the most mind-bogglingly inventive guitarists in metal"? come on now... I like ETID and everything, but this statement is just plain retarded.
this opening paragraph is the exact same thing i wrote for my review of this. you're a thief.
I had my doubts but after a bunch of listens this album really can grow on you. I would say it took at least 10 full listening sessions to like it but now I seriously LOVE this album. Has become my favorite ETID album to date.
Seriously this album grows on you...Plus if you have it in your itunes next to songs from Last Night in Town you'll be amazed at how easily some of them could be interchanged... 8/10
"guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams are two of the most mind-bogglingly inventive guitarists in metal" HAHAHAHAHA 0/10 posted by kenwregget (firstname.lastname@example.org) on 9/19/2005 12:06:36 AM My thoughts exactly. This record certainly isn't awful. 6 or 7 might even be about the right range, but come on, dude. These guys aren't even close to inventive, let alone the MOST inventive.
what the hell is this? Do you people honestly consider this as music? Wake up you brain dead idiots. f*ck!
get some f*cking musicians to review music on this piece of shit website. I'm so f*cking sick of reading reviews making reference to "technical ability" and "innovation" from f*cking fans that don't know how to tune a f*cking instrument. eeh eeh jun jun wee jun jun wee jun jun...its like general relativity, except its music!
This band is terrible. Unless they magically totally changed their sound into something worth listening, this album is surely nothing more than contrived crap. Get a f*cking clue, guys. THIS BAND IS COMPLETE TRASH.
honestly could not get into this record. being a fan of previous etid releases, i cant really say im fond of the direction etid is going. 4/10
It's rock and roll you pussies, go by some shitty metalcore album.
his vocals did catch my by surprise...though i still think its a great record none the less.
"A master-class in dynamics, it’s proof (as if it were needed) that guitarists Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams are two of the most mind-bogglingly inventive guitarists in metal" proof this review is shit.... etid has terrible riffs/vocals/everything shit band
at first i didn't like this, as you can't come close to hot damn, but after seeing them live i've become a bigger fan of this album. different than their back catalogue, but a nice progression forward. I miss the breakdowns, but the rock and roll feel makes up for it.
I would have bought this album on release day if it didn't have those f*ckign JUD JUD WEEEEEE JUD WEE JUD JUD WEEEE breakdowns.
sorry but this album is just terrible, it belongs in the gutter, they should've stopped while they were still good
8/10, but just barely. The production kills it for me. The previous album was better.
I don't get the praise of Hot Damn! either. That album was garbage and that's putting it lightly. This is a step up.
This album strives to keep the sarcastic feel but just falls short. the songs are too unlike each other - the best part of hot damn was the cohesive song writing. the songs were similar but distinctive. this album feels like they tried to have "the heavy song" and "the crazy song" and "the deep song" and it just falls apart. the guest vocalists and keith all sound the same and I still don't even know what tracks they are on, let alone what parts they sing. plus MCR sucks and palumbo lost his bal
I don't see why people think this is such a bad album. The review is pretty accurate. I probably would have given it an 8. And Hot Damn is good, but I don't see why people think it's their greatest album. If anything, their best was Last Night In Town.
okay, from a musician standpoint.. i've been playing guitar for 11 years , not intently studying the damned instrument but i know my way around, not going around sweeping crazy shit though.. as far as i can tell.. gloom and how it gets in the way isn't particular special or stands out as guitar work.. it's typical etid pull offs and hammer ons and random note bending.. it's not mind blowing by any means.. i'm not sure what to think of this cd yet.. definitely not blown away but maybe it will gr
George Bush doesn't care about black people.
this album sucked, if I like a band I usually stand by them 100%. Not is the case here. I was totally and utterly dissappointed. First off not only the vocals were weak as hell, but the lyrics were just plain shitty. I mean "hey girls, I'm a c*nt". What the f*ck. Dude we all know your trying to some double entenuendreas or what ever. As far as the guitar players being fantastic and great, NEGATIVE. I do respect this band and have been a fan, but god damn this was shit. They might as well have ca
I do like this album. The sense of urgency was what I really liked about the previous releases, and it's gone here, but it's been replaced by something else that I find pretty exciting. I guess I do prefer the older stuff, but I can't stop listening to this, either. Can't wait to see these songs live.
8.5/10. couldn't disagree more with the last two songs thing, they're some of my favorite tracks.
Way Good. 9/10 For a sweet rock n Roll Style album
Calm , Calm everyone, can't we all just get along? Now that I attempted to tone down the constant hostility of web posts, let me try to get my point across. I think what everyone needs to accept here is that Every Time I Die is not too much more than a c-ck-rock, catchy-as-f*ck, dance-and-chug-til-the-night-ends band that is the closest thing to a classic 80s rock band that the scene will ever see. They are really good at what they do, though we may not like to admit it, and each new effort t
George Bush doesn't care about black people. posted by Kanye West () on 9/20/2005 9:15:19 PM holy shit that cracked me up. I love how no one gives this album say a 4 or 5. It deserves neither, in my opinion, but proves that a lot of people only think in black and white. either its complete shit or just "meh" 6/10
I think that this album is amazing. Definitly not a 7/10. Great stuff.
this album sucks, it makes me sad to see them fall
