  1. Lost In The Sound Of Separation is truly 2008's first perfect record. [Sep 2008, p.145]
  2. 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.'
  3. When Underoath hits it they hit it well, and Lost in the Sound of Separation is still a very good record despite its faults.
  4. Underoath has made definitive strides at progression without abandoning the muscular, broad-shouldered hardcore that made it a household name.

    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. Full Review »

    Probably not worth a 92 metascore, but this album is absolutely stellar. I rarely listen to any post-hardcore and I've listened to this album more than 100 times through. It's a gem in its genre. Full Review »

    Being a teenager in america is so hard I just need to yell and then sing melodically like nsync.
