Generally favorable reviews - based on 4 Critics

Critic score distribution:

  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. All That Remains maintain the progression demostrated on 2006's "The Fall Of ideals," further exploring metal taboos like hooks and melody. [Oct 2008, p.156]
  2. There were some hits and some misses on this band's follow-up to a somewhat commercial success.
  3. Phillip Labonte's melodic vocals give the Massachussetts quintet an edge over their contemporaries, and the songwriting and classy production here suggests they're set for bigger things. [Oct 2008, p.141]
  4. Overcome is but a grain in the sand on an oversaturated desert; a metal album you'll enjoy while you play it but won't ever be something you‘ll yearn to hear.

    Im going to say now this is their second worst album, their first being behind the silence and solitude which is their debut. and these a lot of flak about this album being mainstream, and yes it is very mainstream. as a whole this album is enjoyable but nothing more, it didnt make me feel any emotion, it was all just nonsense, but like i said i do enjoy this album. if you want to check out great albums by these guys, check out: This Darkened Heart, The Fall Of Ideals(in my opinion their best) and For We Are Many.

    Their second worst album. It is more mainstream than anything they have ever done, but a handful of songs do stick out as classic tracks. Not as aggressive as previous efforts (or future for that matter) and not quite as memorable. But don't get me wrong, I loved this album, It's just not their best. (That being the fall of ideals).
