3.0 out of 5 stars VERY average July 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am a major fan of As I Lay Dying, and I must say I wasn't blown away at all. The new material on the album was some good metal, kinda all the same, but then again it is metal. I was mostly disappointed with their new versions of their previously released songs (behind me lies another fallen soldier, forever, the beginning, the pain of seperation). Their transition from a metalcore band to a metal band was disappointing to say the least. I'm not sure how anyone would associate grindcore with them in any way but this album is definately boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album By A Great Band July 18 2004

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing July 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best metal/hardcore albums ever. From beginning to end it is awesome. I know a lot of "metalcore" bands sound the same, but this cd stands out. Tim really has his vocals down. The energy that posses this band is pure and true. 94 Hours, Forever, and ever other track make this album listenable. I can listen to it over and over. Oh, by the way, this is a Christian band and I am not a Christian. They fool just about everybody.

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.

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. The stream of conciousness style of writing is INTERESTING but doesn't make for much of an enjoyable reading. 'Sutree' by Cormac McCarthy has a similar prose that he uses in certain passages for strictly the sake of describing the environment that the characters find themselves in. Cormac makes his story so tangible and the surroundings are tragic in a beautiful sort of way. Back to Faulkner, you have to give him credit for his lack of punctuation and his consistant change of subject from line to line. Congrats to Faulkner for what I imagine is another confusing bit of pretentious art literature. Metalcore is for poontangs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and alot better than Bleeding through July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Now I'm really not the type of person who enjoys screamo metal but, very rarely there are a few bands that catch my attention.Bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Thrice are great and As I Lay Dying are spectacular. Great catchy crunchy riffs along with the brutality of the drummers double bass assault make "Frail Words Collapse" a good album. The songer could use a little work although he isn't bad he needs to sing a little more.I really enjoy the fact that they can make love songs like "Forever" and not make them sound lame. Who the hell said every metal song had to be about death and destruction anyway. "distancte is Darkness" is also a kick ass track with some of the oddest and inventive drum time signatures I've heard since the first Mudvayne album. Good album worth the money
