Product Description


Rise Against returns with a rollicking wallop of an album that further establishes the Chicago-based outfit as one of the great bright hopes for the future of alienation rock. Cut from the same savvy cloth as Bad Religion and Black Flag, Rise Against rocks hard during the martial opus opener, "Chamber The Cartridge," the melodic "Injection," which asks us to imagine that Iron Maiden came from sunny California and not some dreary part of London, and "Ready To Fall," which may be one of the greatest anthems of adolescent estrangement since The Who's "Baba O'Riley." The band also isn't afraid of a good hook and scintillating melody ("Under The Knife"), exploring complex emotions ("Roadside"), or unleashing a bit of old-school breakneck fury sans apology ("Brick"). All of these things demonstrate that Rise Against is drawing from a broader palette than many of its counterparts, one of the reasons it will (indeed, already has) rise above the masses of sound-alike acts vying for the attention of the MySpace generation. --Jedd Beaudoin

Product Description

Chicago's Rise Against is anything but a single-minded musical outfit. An astounding fusion of unhinged power, ear-grasping melodies, stimulating lyrics and the ability to reach audiences in both underground and mainstream circles, they have redefined the rules. We're a band that's done everything from hardcore songs to pop songs to acoustic ballads that get played on the radio,' says vocalist/guitarist Tim McIlrath. The Sufferer & The Witness, their 4th album, continues to build upon the solid punk foundation - it is a striking collection, with Rise Against using elements from spoken word, expanded balladry, and simply plodding forward with a faster, harder, louder ethic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this as good as Siren Song? July 4 2006
Format:Audio CD
Rise Against's last album, "Siren Song Of The Counter Culture", was a masterpiece in every respect. Could it ever be matched? The only people who knew the answer to this question were the boys from Chicago themselves. And the answer was, simply, yes.

"The Sufferer and the Witness" is an excellent and well polished record. Unlike other recent releases such as "Stadium Arcadium" by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, this album is not filled with the same old sounds. It is new, and refreshing, and it really shows.

Starting off with the, unmistakably Rise Against, fast pace of "Chamber the Cartridge", this sets the tone for the rest of the album. Fast and catchy.

This leads into the brilliant "Injection" formerly known as "Done With the Compass". In my opinion, this song is one of the best the band has ever written. It has everything, powerful verses and a very very catchy chorus. If you don't find yourself singing along to this then there is something wrong with you!

"Ready to Fall" is next, this song is good, but not as good as the previous. It also has a very catchy chorus in which Tim voice is incredible .

For me, "Bricks" is a fairly poor song. It is too repetitive and reminds me of older Rise Against songs. But let's not dwell on this song.

After that momentary blip, Rise get right back up there with "Under the Knife" but this is only a prelim to what is about to come ...

"Prayer of the Refugee" (formerly "Diaspora") is simply out of this world. It cuts right to the heart of political issues and does it with style. Starting with an almost story like first verse, this song grabs your attention. Just as you think this song is going to stay slow, the pace quickens and leaves you for dead with an outstanding chorus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great New Album from these Great Guys July 25 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is another great album from these guys. Compared to their last one, I'd say this one is jsut as good. Although much of their material sounds the same, the guitars and such, I still like this CD. The stand-out tunes for me on this album woul dhave to be Under the Knife, Prayer of the Refugee, and Worth Dying For. I can't say I really hated any track on this CD, but on Roadside, it is the band aiming for a lighter feel, but it just didn't work out for me. If they want a lighter sound, they should jsut go acoustic, like they did for 'Swing Life Away'

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise Against Rocks! June 29 2006
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
Wow! how can we evaluate an record that is not even out yet? Looks like Jesse doesnt love Rise Against, I can agree but I can't accept that he find them horrible for their political engagement. If your too dumb to understand their lyrics, continue to listen to your music which should be poppy as hell.

Bands like Rise Against play music for passion not for money or to be famous. They donate a lot to fondation which I respect a lot. Also, tell me why would they change if they doing good on this field of music?

Now that i got the album I can only say that i'm amazed how good is Rise Against. I don't care if Rise Against does sound like old stuff as long as they doing good stuff. Changing sound doesnt mean greatness to answer Jesse about his review.

Tell me Jesse, would you have appreciate this album if any other band had made it? But just because it is from Rise Against, a band that does this kind of music, you dislike the album? Only because it sound similar?

I just don't agree with you because I don't think we should evaluate an record compared to old stuff. We just have to evaluate the album itself.

And i'm not against style changement, as long it is good music for me it's alright. For example, Thrice had made a total surprise in Vheissu which sounds completly different than old stuff, they lost some fan but i still loved because it is good music!
