This band is so good they cannot be put into words.... Just listen for yourself. I do not already have this cd but as soon as i go to the music place im going to get it. I have heard half the songs on this cd and they are outstanding. The talent is just almost to good.One of the standout tracks on this cd id have to say would be "just barely breathing"... i suggest u get this unforgetable, spine tingling cd... its just so good ur heart might stop....these guys along with poison the well are proly my two favourite hardcore bands... if u dont have this cd, buy it right now! It's worth every last penny and even the gas money!

this album is great. it isn't too heavy, it isn't too soft. it's the right blend of everything beautiful that metal itself has to offer. this album fades away from typical metal into what is know as metalcore. the vocals are pretty intense but at times he sings rather that shout and it is very dramatically brought about, in a good way. i am more of a lyrics person; the lyrics of this album were great, fairly intense with meaning. unlike some bands whose lyrics are intense with little to no meaning. overall the album has a very in your face thrill with some of that rememberance moments. there are portions of songs where it slows down into that power ballad vocals, and those are the moments where it gets very intense and deep. overall, this album is gorgeous. i personally recommend "my last serenade" and "barely breathing." buy it, no questions asked.

This is one of the best metal efforts in recent years and certainly Killswitch Engage's best. I first heard of KsE on a RoadRunner compilation that were given out at other group's shows; the song was Life to Lifeless, an undeniably catchy song with a truly pumping pre-chorus and soaring chorus.
This album is arranged perfectly, flowing from peak to peak. It opens with a throaty yell of "The time approaches!" on "Numbered Days" and from that moment, you know you're in for one terrifically turbulent experience. It's become basically standard nowadays to yell and thrash the verses away and then break into clean sustained melodic choruses, but few bands can do this formula correctly because it requires 1) verses that really kick and get your blood pumping and 2) genuinely inspiring and addictive choruses that allow for cathartic release. Well, KsE *can definitely* do it. I'd mention highlights, but practically every song is a highlight, including the cool-down clean tone "Without a Name" which perfectly precedes the forceful exit "Rise Inside". "My Last Serenade" and "The Element of One" were the songs I instantly became addicted to. My absolute favorite is "Just Barely Breathing", which I consider one of the most powerful songs, lyrically and sonically, I've heard in a few years.
This album is certainly a must-have. You will not regret buying it and will find yourself randomly singing pieces of it for a long time to come.

this album is amazing, insane, and straight up intense. from the first track to the last, you get beat, punched, pounded, kicked, smacked, and blistered with intense metal quality. metalcore, or what not, this album is crazy. the sounds are just intense, lots of high energy riffs, lots of high energy tunes. the melodies come beautiful and at the right time. every track gives you something different with something familiar. you cannot complain. ok, so why the 4 instead of the 5? well, i found some of the slow parts to be a bit TOO cheesy. to me, it was an unfamiliar blend of extremely heavy blanded with some harsh mellow melodies. it just did not come together for me. i think they could have done without the slowing down and melodies. like the song "just barely breathing", when he stops the shouting and the guitars and drums slow down, it just seems to...it just doesn't fit right for me. it was too sudden a stop and too abrupt. but nevertheless, this album is intense, and insanely difficult for mediocre metalheads. you have to love metal, and breath metal to like this album, and i approve of this album. with that said, i would recommend you to just buy it, the parts that bothered me did not murk me enough to NOT buy this album, or NOT listen to it. after five or six rotations, you grow over it, and grow to love it.

This cd rocks @$$. Even the worst songs on here are very good. This is very good metalcore. Anyone who likes In Flames , Lamb of God , etc. should check this band out. (And should like it but o well there are some weird ones in the bunch). The strongest tracks are 1-6 but the rest are good as well. My favorite songs are: My Last Serenade , Fixiation on the Darkness , Numbered Days , and Just Barely Breathing. Any fan of metal should see this band out!
Thats my 2 cents.
