  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.

    As predicted, this is a polarizing album. There are those who love it for what it is, and those who hate it for personal reasons. I offer you As predicted, this is a polarizing album. There are those who love it for what it is, and those who hate it for personal reasons. I offer you nothing less, just my opinion. At first I didn't know what to think of this new beast. I had honestly hoped this would return to the slick and melodic "They're Only Chasing Safety"-era sound, as I prefer more melodic music. However, I didn't get that, and for whatever reason, that did not disappoint me. The melodies are there, I can promise you that. However, the hooks are more burried, less outlandish and much more refined. Like a gemstone discovered in a cave, they make you look a little closer at what's around you. This is a headphone album, no doubt. There are inticacies which can't be picked up on unless it's in your ears and that's all you can focus on. Once you let the music take you where it wants to go, you'll see that this album offers the listener a wonderful sonic experience. Having said all that, this is definitely not for everybody, but it is for me and I will gladly take it. Expand

    Deep Lyrics, Good Music. Its nice to have a band that can chain together really great albums, and keep on improving. And ten to counter that Deep Lyrics, Good Music.

    I can sympathize with those of you who don't like this genre of music. I really can. 3 years ago I would have laughed if someone let me I can sympathize with those of you who don't like this genre of music. I really can. 3 years ago I would have laughed if someone let me listen to this album. But what you need to understand is that for this genre of music (metalcore/post hardcore) this album trully is remarkable, even though it is far from accesible. Hands down a 10 as far as I'm concerned. Expand

    I'm not Steve O's friend. This album isn't as good as Define the Great Line or They're Only Chasing Safety but its dang I'm not Steve O's friend. This album isn't as good as Define the Great Line or They're Only Chasing Safety but its dang close. It was recorded with a lot of lows, so turn your bass down and enjoy this record for a very long time. Expand

    While not topping their ridiculously grand 2004 album, They're Only Chasing Safety, underOATH does it again. I am not prone to listening While not topping their ridiculously grand 2004 album, They're Only Chasing Safety, underOATH does it again. I am not prone to listening to Christian based music at all, but I make one exception for this Florida screamcore/metal/electric/whateveryouwanttocallit band. Not only do these guys add a since of melody to a usually unmelodic hardcore scene, they do it with so much grace and style that you get lost in the screams. Expand

    There is nothing musical about this album, it is trash, you can't understand a thing the singer is uttering.

What the hell is a "since of melody"? Only an idiot could like this. Expand

    Absolute garbage. From begining to end. If you like this, you're not my friend.
