this album is sick as f*ck! you can download it at bittorrent.com
This should be a good album as it returns to the sound of converge era "When Forever Comes Crashing" which was their best record to date in my opinion. With their last album "You Fail Me" they let go most of their abbrasive chaotic "coalesce"- sound which resulted in a mediocre HC album. No wonder every goddamn HC kid suddenly liked them. Back to Chaos, but most importantly back to Metal!
^^^^^^^^^ has no idea what he's talking about
Great record except for trophy scars. that song = not so good.
This album sucks absolute balls. You pathetic fanboys will eventually realize this.
amazing album, great follow up to You Fail Me. I don't think this band could release an album that is bad.
uhh.... cave.... in.... try clicking on the board link once and a while dudes
that is a really good review...the most accurate ive read so far
LOooOoOoOoOOoOoSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE UNITTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 9/100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A f*ckIN 99999999999999999999999999999999999999!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LAP MY BEEN BAG!!!!!!!!!!!!! A f*ckING 999999999999!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 99999999999999!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The fact that Jucifer gets a 9better score than Converge is proof that lambgoat has officially gone gay. Pull 'em down, boys - I'm headin' in!
i cant believe the reviewer would even suggest the bands creativity is running low... their 16 years in! and every album is nothing short of amazing.. what other band can say that? and how can u complain about variation in the songs.. thats so stupid this review sucks. it should of gotten a 10.
im not a big fan of many of cory's reviews but you guys are retarded.
I don't see how you can give You Fail Me a nine and justify giving this album an 8. You Fail Me was one of Converges least inspiring releases, No Heroes is f*cking amazing.
i dont like to criticize reviews because most of them are completely opinion and how can anyone tell a person how to review something, etc. but seriously, the new JUCIFER album is better than No Heroes? if you're going to have a rating system, it should make more sense than that.
Sorry, I like converge okay, but they're MUCH more gay than Jucifer. I'm not saying one's better than the other, but Converge is about as emo/screamo as they come.
this album is great and youre an idiot for not thinking so.
converge is screamo? somebody needs to die. in a very harsh manner.
I'd personaly say 9/10, but the review was pretty spot on. All the songs are great, but as an album, the flow gets broken here and there. I know most bands put out collections on songs on a cd as opposed to constructing an album, but jane doe flows seamlessly from start to finish. I'm glad they are still experimenting though.
Yeah, screamo. Just listen to them. If you don't hear it, then you're a delusional fanboy/girl who simply likes screamo music and can't admit it. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with screamo. It just is, and you like it. You'll be happier once you admit to yourself. Converge is okay. Nothing overly exceptional with them. But then again, I'm not a paid musician.
If you think Converge is emo or "screamo," you are a tremendous f*cking gay.
This cd is decent at best, and very easy to forget..
This review reads like shit. OverANALyzed. This record shreds all. Spend enough time talking about the previous records? 9/10 only cuz i dont see why Trophy Scars made it on the record. Other than that, it flows amazing and yet again sets the bar for their genre for the next 3 years, yet again.
man i really hate this review.. anyway they are not f*cking screamo.. the album is 100 cohesive and makes perfect sense.. and trophy scars is a great song. the album is f*cking perfect.. there i said it. its perfect. and no im not joking.
youre all douchebags who cant admit you like(d) converge because your too busy jamming the most obscure (and probably shitty) band you can find for the sake of sounding cooler than everyone else. eat a f*cking dick. youre probably listening to it now.
Converge' only masterpiece was Jane Doe. All the hype around the latter albums is just for the band's "cult". So sad, this is an average record, according to the promo text: follower, not leader.
I agree with above. Forgetable, and meh at best. Listen to it twice, you'll know.
I said it about Dismember and I'll say it about Converge...This album rips, just like all their others. I like No Heroes a lot better than You Fail Me, however.
I've been listening to this record for a month straight, and almost every day since the CD was released. Easily a 9/10 album.
I still see a lot of creativity in this band and this record. Converge has never led nor followed, they've gone their own route. Don't disagree with the reviewer's opinion cause it does feel broken up. But I still love every second of No Heroes.
Everyone on this site blows old men. Converge's new album is not good. I've had it for at least a month and a half now and deleted it to make more space for good music. This band hasn't been good for even longer than all you gays have been going to shows. Everyone on this site has shit between their ears.
good review...and the Jucifer and Converge records were reviewed by two DIFFERENT people, so it's not like this guy personally thought the Jucifer album was better. Retards.
You're entitled to your opinion of course, but what i like to know is what the hell are you listening to that's so f*cking fantastic Mr. Shitty breasts?? I want to know what brand of shit is in your ears.
(1) Amazing record (2) YOU FAIL ME was far from bad (3) Converge is NOT "screamo"
it's a natural progression. it's the stripped down feel of you fail me, sped up and expanded. you can't really compare it to previous releases, like you can't compare you fail me to when forever comes crashing down.
good album, good review just too long... 8/10 is very appropriate
This album is clearly better than You Fail Me. I'd go so far as to call this one of their strongest works yet, second only to Jane Doe.
well f*ck, no mention about "bare my teeth" - i thought it was it was a nice spin on some of converge's older elements added with an eerie clean guitar melody over some nice drumming triplets, etc etc etc and then when it "breaks down" its a nice little pummeling sound with some more conventional converge. just my .02
I agree with above. Forgetable, and meh at best. Listen to it twice, you'll know. posted by () on 10/31/2006 7:39:09 AM Nah, i listened to it 20 times already. Still not bored
Converge has never led nor followed, t uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......................................... moron
Petty f*cking bickering. Either you like the album or not. Either you like Converge or not. Who f*cking cares what other jackasses think about a band you like/don't like. Enjoy the album or throw it away, it has no consequence on anyone else. Tards.
this album is far superior to "you fail me"... 10/10
Jane Doe will never be touched... When's the new Simple Plan cd coming out?
It's too bad my work blocks myspace or I'd be streaming this all day =( If anyone knows where else to stream it, let me know.. I don't think that they would appreciate me using Soulseek here, that is, of course unless I was downloading some bullshit country hick shit.
People who say Jane Doe is Converge's only "masterpiece" never listened to Converge before that album. People who say Converge sounded like Coalesce need to get a clue and flip that statement around.... People who say Converge are "screamo"...well, just do us all a favour and eat a bullet.
I think Trophy Scars is one of the best songs on the album. I also think that You Fail Me is one of Converge's best. Overall, pretty good.
i rather enjoyed it.... still one of the most abrasive bands in this style today. also: you f*ckers who examine hardcore in its current incarnation while ignoring history and context are idiots. converge is not 'screamo' for christ's sake.
I have never seen such a pac of gay converge fans in my life. walking into this review comment box is like walking into a f*cking gay club. f*cking losers. specially the first poster. I CAn NOT WAIT FOR THIS TO COME OUT. man, you are a gay.
first of all this album is great.....maybe it aint better than Jane Doe but still is great...i liked it more than You Fail Me.Ckk if u think that u entered a gay fanclub let me offer you a didlo to place it in your ears.maybe then u start listening to better music.i dont expect all u like Converge but all the HC era must respect this band...
ckk hates converge cause its what every cool poster does, duh.
Excellent review. Cory is the only person at lambgoat who should be reviewing albums.
If this album isn't better than that piece of shit You Fail Me, I'm quitting this band forever
Wow, do you f*cks get paid to write this badly?
Never really got into it, how many listens did you guys need to really get into it? I have no idea, but this album was "harder" to get into for some reason.
i thought ckk liked this cd because it was all pissed off sounding? f*cking p0ser
cory stop sucking balls u gay your reviews suck almost as much hairy jerks as u do...f*ckin fairy
plagues is the worst song on the album. it could have been composed by twelve year olds. even if the production on it is good, the parts are poorly arranged and really really boring to boot.
another shit review. cory should be fired for sure.
This is generally the reason why i stay away from metal/hardcore forums... metalheads calling each other gays all day long because their opinoins clash... great. No Heroes is a great, GREAT record with some blistering tracks, but after a while the record does begin to tire ever so slightly. The first few tracks are a great example. At first, when you first listen to the record you are literally assualted by some of the most brutal hardcore i've heard (in quite a long time), but after a while
Converge is an amazing band. They're ripped off by so many bands it's pitiful, so to see them put out an album that is a little different ( and might I add very good) shows how uncontemporary they are while other bands just put out the same record over and over again. Might I add, Grim Heart/Black Rose should show you how talented this band really is. They're beyond screamo or emo and any of that shit, they're genre defying. Believe it.
I must agree with RyanATF. Converge is amazing. Broken Vow changed my life (along with all of Jane Doe). That album made me see music in a completely different light. To see such a talented band still making music, not because they want fame, approval, or money, is great. They make music that they like to play and hear, so that they can play and listen to it. If you make music for any other reason than that, you shouldn't play music. Fan boy or not, Converge goes against every genre. f*ck genres
one of the best albums i've heard. Converge is sick
so discussion of metal and hardcore albums appear to attract homophobes with excess vitriol. Stop living up to the cliche, guys. ... I enjoyed this album although I have to agree that it is hardly groundbreaking. Jane Doe is clearly a masterpiece, and it is unfair to expect the band to consistently release masterpieces. What band does? ebola
i dont think that converge is worthy of all the lavish praise they seem to get on all these review sites, the band isnt without talent...but their songs...technical or not, are 9 times out of ten impossible for me to latch onto at all, jake bannon, good lyrics, awesome stage presence....but shit voice
Shittiest f*cking vocals ever. AR RAWR ARGH RAR RAWR
