  1. Lost In The Sound Of Separation is truly 2008's first perfect record. [Sep 2008, p.145]
  2. Underoath has made definitive strides at progression without abandoning the muscular, broad-shouldered hardcore that made it a household name.
  3. It doesn't take long for Separation to rescue itself from painfully serious, aggro-MTV mediocrity, as those two tracks are quickly followed up by the riveting 'A Fault Line, A Fault of Mine' and 'Emergency Broadcast: The End Is Near.'
  4. When Underoath hits it they hit it well, and Lost in the Sound of Separation is still a very good record despite its faults.

    Amazing! One of those bands that I fell in love with at first sight (well in this case sound). If Underoath is played at just the right sound-level, it is the perfect mixture of metal and calmness. You need a true musician's ear to truly enjoy this epic music. Expand

    If I were a hardcore fan of Underoath, I might like this album less. This is because this doesn't sound much like they did earlier on, with their constant line-up changes and whatnot. I disregarded the band over the years because of what I heard from their earlier stuff, but this CD is absolutely amazing. It is absolute raw discordance pushed to the limits with plenty of surprising moments along the way. Don't be close-minded because of their earlier material - if you love hard rock, try this record.

Underoath tells a story about falling in the darkest times of your life and then go out, reminding you that you are not alone. In an inhospitable world, Lost In The Sound Of Separation is an injection of optimism that pierces the darkness.
