    Generic, corporate "emo". Just another cash-in on a dying genre by a talentless band.

    Recycled, emo/scenester, naïve, parent-hating, rebellious garbage. For a style of music that prides itself in being "anti-pop" they sure do follow the formula. Four minute songs, false emotion, disgusting lyrics, and song arrangements that only the best producers can make. Take a hint Hawthorne Heights. If you want to be respected, write your own music and demand more control of how Recycled, emo/scenester, naïve, parent-hating, rebellious garbage.

  1. It's a familiar mix of music, to be sure, but Fragile Future also sounds more valid than other emo albums, even if its hooks aren't quite as muscular as those on the band's previous disc.
  2. As with prior releaes, Woodruff's lyrics can be hokey, but his Midwestern earnestness makes it easy to let it slide. [Sep 2008, p.158]
  3. Emo fans will be satisfied; dabblers will have their assumptions about the genre confirmed.
