5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album By A Great Band July 18 2004
By Cam
Format:Audio CD
Okay, a ton of people have said they like this album, and a ton of people have said they didn't. I tend to notice that these negative people are people that don't exactly enjoy the whole genre that they've chosen to review. This is the wrong way to go about things. You're opinion is really only valid if you like the genre you are reviewing, and you are comparing bands to like bands, and sometimes closely related genres.
Onto As I Lay Dying. I personally love this album, front to back. It is an amazing display of very melodic yet heavy, crunching guitars, the most astounding drum work I've heard to date, and a chugging bass that some people claim not to hear. Being a bassist, I can hear these things, and the baselines aren't too difficult, but they are still technical and dramatic. They add dimension, such as the intro to "Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier", in which the bass is the whole melody part, with some piano it sounds like, with a guitar "solo-esque" line playing in the middle ground.
As I Lay Dying is a band that can put together a fantastic song. The lyrics are heartfelt, yet powerful and damaging. They are written for a screamer, hence them being short, sweet, and simple. I really like how the vocalist can go from a howl/bark/scream to a soft very nice singing voice. However, his sung part as very distant, almost whispers in the night, and are few and far between. He sings only twice.
Ontop of the excellent vocalist, the guitars can change from a chugging crunchy riff, to an assult, to sludgy, to a melodic almost acoustic sound. They really know how to mix it up in this band. In most songs, the guitars take influence from many genres and throw it into a great end product.

4.0 out of 5 stars a huge improvement July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a solid cd of swedish influenced metalcore. Their first cd was very weak compared to this as it was an obvious zao ripoff. But this cd is a huge leap forward for them, and they do a lot to set themselves apart from the throng of other wannabe metalcore bands. The cd starts out with 94 hours, which has some really tight drumming and excellent guitar work and sets the pace for the rest of the album. Jordan Mancino blazes on the double bass in this first song and throughout the entire album, and it's awesome. 94 hours, Elegy, Undefined, and Falling Upon Deaf Ears are among the highlights of this cd. The lyrics are so-so and the production could have been a little better, however. Also, they are a christian band, but it's okay here because they keep it to themselves (are you listening underoath?). This cd is solid and worth the money. If you like loud music, particularly metal or hardcore, this cd has all the components of a good metalcore cd and is worth the purchase. BTW you can find it most stores for $9.99, as with most other metalblade records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! July 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's an amazing release from AILD. Definitely a step-up from their debut release "Beneath the Encasing of Ashes." What I do not understand is why people care so much if they are just the 1,999 band to be added to the swede-metal "genre" or whatever "genre" you think they should be in. Music is about variety and what appeals to each individual. Thus, I don't believe that it is right to criticize a band for sounding so much like so many other bands. Music wouldn't be fun if there were only a handful of bands in the "_________" scene. Anyways, as for that JOSH kid, who are you to say that mediocre music is for mediocre people. You are simply a close-minded retard to even say that in the first place.
Back on track, "Frail Words Collapse" is an amazing CD from beginning to end. The only song I didn't care for was track 8. Seemed like a filler to me at first. I got used to it after awhile and now I actually enjoy listening to it. I would like to hear more breakdowns though. As with all bands, they may not appeal to you, but AILD is certainly worth checking out.
Other bands that are worth checking out: As Hope Dies, Shadows Fall, It Dies Today and Wings of Scarlet...

5.0 out of 5 stars great metalcore June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Well being a hard metal,power metal,metalcore and even some death
metal.As I Lay Dying seems to mix a little of all that they have
the speed and mosh abilitys of Dying Fetus,The sic growl/scream/
and clean singing seen in fellow record label mates Unearth and
Atreyu,They have the powerful breakdowns and chugging riffs and
some of the best double bass assault ever.Yep As I Lay Dying is
damn near the band of the year.Metal Blade records the legendary
metal record company that have Cannibal Corpse,Vader,The Crown,
Black Dahlia Murder,Unearth,Six Feet Under,and now As I Lay Dying
to create of the greatest metal collage of bands today.Enough
about Metal Blade,onto AS I LAY DYING,This band may have some
chriastian lyrics but who cares the music and structure of the
music is what matters.This band is absolutely relentless songs
like 94 Hours,Forever,Ellegy,etc are absolutely heavy and just
amazing.I've heard everyone on this sight and alot of metal mags
have raved about this band and now I know why.This band are maybe
the best band of their kind and I hope they stick to the metal
and don't turn emo or hrd-rock.With their success now I doubt they'll change much.So more great bands to check out,all the
Metal Blade records bands I listed also Bleeding Through,Atreyu,
Converge,Lamb Of God,Haste,Dying Fetus,Himsa,Eighteen Visions,
Poison The Well,and Killswitch Engage.

2.0 out of 5 stars William Faulkner's followup to The Sound and the Fury.
Or was it 'The Sound and the Fury' is the follow-up to 'Absalom, Absalom!' Faulkner is a real pompous art-for-the-sake-of-art author. Read more
