    Ex Lives should help them join the big boy's table. [3 Mar 2012, p.52]
  2. Bigger, badder, and louder than ever, Ex Lives will go down as the definitive Every Time I Die record.

    This is a deafening, destructive and devilishly diverse affair, serving as a firm and timely reminder that when it comes to this particular game, nobody does it quite like this.

    Though the stouter vocals have given the band more confidence for moments of melodic bombast, occasionally they sound out of place.

    The result is beefier, but it's also blander.

    Ex Lives just sounds like a band going through the motions.

    The sixth album from Every Time I Die - "Ex-Lives" is a fourteen track compilation of the borderline alternative metal, hardcore punk and screamo. Less than a half-hour CD is full of quite good songs at a frantic pace, but there is lack of memorable compositions - except "Typical Miracle" or "The Low Road Has No Exits". Expand
