    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.

It's veryA super catchy album, however it is abnormal due to the fact that it was brought into a genre that isn't accustomed to this style. It's very unique, and many people hate on it simply because they're not used to hearing this type of music. All of the "real" fans of Falling in Reverse like this album, or at least tolerate, simply because this album was the make-or-break point of the fan base. Many "fans" left after this album, and wrote bad reviews because this isn't what they wanted. However, this doesn't make this a bad album. This, in my opinion, is 10x better than their third album, the one everyone adores. This album is fast, upbeat, catchy, and different. It mixes post-hardcore and screaming with upbeat pop rhythms and vocals. And don't forget the solos. The solos are great. If you love both rock and pop, this album is definitely for you. Ignore all the hate and listen for yourself. I'd start with "Where Have You Been". Expand

    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 organizationRonnie 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

    I'm not the one to mock one's "artistic work, but seriously...

    If you ever want to laugh your ass off at one of the biggest musical trainwrecks of the 2010's, then you should listen to this album.

    A failed attempt at trying to mix genres together while remaining horribly cliched an painful.

    Hilarious...

    I am literally exasperated that somebody can make a horrible and pretentious album like this one. It's nothing but garbage. All the songs haveI am literally exasperated that somebody can make a horrible and pretentious album like this one. It's nothing but garbage. All the songs have one of the worst lyrics ever (for example, just listen to Alone: "Oh, so **** you too, you better take a step back before I call up the crew, you talk a lot of **** but you spread nothing but lies, you keep on running your mouth you better open your eyes"? Who the hell writes lyrics like that?). While their first effort was a solid one, this one just proves how much has Ronnie Radke gone downhill after Escape The Fate. Anybody giving this album a ten out of ten seriously needs to get its ears checked. Expand

    No. There are too many 10s for this album from idiotic high schoolers spewing platitudes like, "You just don't understand Ronnie" or asinineNo. 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
