  1. At the end of the day, when you look at this album, everything just fires on all cylinders--lyrically, vocally, instrumentally.

    "Silver Lining" finds the group at its most savage, while exceptional moments like the anthemic, harmonious choruses of "Learned Behavior" and "Strange Comfort" balance the scales and help the Color Morale to reveal themselves as one of the most dynamic acts of the genre.

    Whether it’s thrashier influences on ‘Silver Linings’ or lyrics that casually rip the piss out of their genre in ‘In Light Of Me’, it’s a refreshing listen.

    Though their sometimes generic juddering occasionally dulls the impact, it's still clear the Color Morale are trying to be more than just "another one of those bands." [Apr 2013, p.88]

    The Color Morale never strays too far from the tried-and-true tropes of their subgenre on full-length No. 3, but still manages to craft tunes that are passionate and memorable.

    While the album’s too inconsistent in style to be considered a successful change of pace for the group, it’s at least a promising sign of things to come.

    The emotional significance and power of the band is once again what gives the band their edge in the crowded metal/metalcore scene. The titleThe emotional significance and power of the band is once again what gives the band their edge in the crowded metal/metalcore scene. The title of the album really says it all. The Color Morale really does want those who listen to the album to know hope.

    It's an album made for those of us who just feel lost. The impressive vocal range of lead singer Garret Rapp allows a wide range of emotions to be displayed. Anger, sadness, and hopefulness all lead to an incredible sound.

    It's powerful, emotional music. A step up from their already amazing previous album "My Devil In Your Eyes." Fans won't be disappointed and those giving the band a shot for the first time are likely to be blown away. This album is incredible and deserves your attention.

    9.7/10
