    Ronnie Radke's lyrics are convincingly nasty. [Oct 2013, p.91]

    Throughout the album, there is chaos.

    It's highly doubtful that anyone other than a true-blue fan would be able to get past the asinine boasts, the overwhelming misogyny, and the pure outlandishness of it all.

    They obliterate any subtle expression or connection to the listener beyond low-order thinking--the band just bludgeons the listener with generic narcissistic drivel.
  5. The songs themselves are a disaster. Everything is trashy and over the top, but generally rubbish too.... Basically, this is probably the worst album ever created by a serious group of musicians.

    Ronnie Radke was finally able to produce an album that he wanted. No one seems to enjoy it because they can't seem to follow the organization of the songs. Have you ever listened to an album purely because the musician knows how to perform, probably not. The diversity this album has should not be a bad thing, It's allowing an artist, who has gotten to the level that every person strives to get to, to actually enjoy creating music. The amount of energy Ronnie puts into each of his songs and the meaning behind it is what the album should be about not producing an album that is going to sell records. Personally I'm a huge fan of Ronnie and what he does. It's nice to actually see a performer who wants to put out music he enjoys playing rather than what the audience is going to listen to. This has been one of my favorite albums purely because of the excitement in Ronnie's voice as he is singing. As much as i give him credit for this, his entire band provides the opportunity for him to do so and they back him up with outstanding "music" Expand

    The more I listen to this album - the more I like it. The only song I'm not a fan of is the video game song. I find there is a wide range in the songs and I love Ronnie's voice. Expand

    I am literally shocked and appalled that after such a fantastic premier album that "Falling in Reverse" could release such an album like this one. It's misguided, confused, and disappointing. There are some songs here that I do actually like, but I've never listened to an album that can range from excellent to generic then right to terrible the way this one does. Even more shocking is that it can make these changes right in the middle of a song!

    The problem with this album is that there is so much failed experimentation with the band's musical style. Everything sounds great when the band is sticking to it's rock and screamo/metal roots, but everything goes to hell the moment the album takes a misguided turn in order to experiment with musical styles such as hip-hop, rapping, pop, techno, electronica, and even country. The moment this happens everything just starts to sound awful. Even worse the quality of the lyrics even degrade, especially when Radke starts rapping. The lyrics can range from deep moments where Radke is singing about his mother, to downright juvenile and plain out and flat stupid anytime else.

    This is a very disappointing album. Nothing here lives up to the bands previous work. There are still some really great songs here, and I do respect them for having the guts to experiment with their sound, but I can't help but feel like this album is the epitome of a failed experiment. As far as I'm concerned the majority of this album will be a permanent blemish on their record that will make it hard for me to excited for any future work they may do in the future.

    No. Just NO. What kind of an album is this? This is just pure rubbish. Every single song is beyond pretentious. After I heard "Alone", I was expecting the whole album to be a disaster, and I was right. This band are a pure disgrace for any music genre. I completely regret myself for listening to this garbage.

    Do not listen to this album. You have been warned.

    A desperate attempt by Ronnie Radke to stand out from your typical 'scene' band. Lyrically the album is repetitive and clich├ęd. The typical 'me against the world' theme that so many bands seem to cling to nowadays. His singing is annoying, his screams sound more like constipated wails. Worst of all was just how pretentious and egotistical this whole album is, the track 'Alone' is a good example of this. Expand

    No. There are too many 10s for this album from idiotic high schoolers spewing platitudes like, "You just don't understand Ronnie" or asinine claims attesting to the inaccessibility of the song structures, rather than their complete non-existence. There's nothing to understand. He's an egotistical hack with no talent cut and pasting sections of styles to come out with an even amalgam. Hopefully this 0 can balance out the misguided praises of pubescent fangirls. Expand
