    Based on the critic's score I was really looking forward to something meatily punk. However, this is a really dreary album. Every track sounds the same, the vocals are in the fashionable strangulated manner that just sounds silly and the song writing is utterly unimaginative. In short, a stinker.

    This is the saddest excuse for "music" I have ever heard. The singer is a one trick pony who only knows how to right angst songs that teenagers cry themselves to sleep to. 13 songs and only 20 minutes long this band can't write a **** record to save their own lives. Everyone who gave this album a positive review should be ashamed of themselves and their taste in music this album is theThis is the saddest excuse for "music" I have ever heard.

    Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me is fuelled by issues addressed in Jeremy Bolm's furiously screamed, raw and sometimes, frustratingly po-faced vocals. [Aug. 2011, p. 119]

    This is a staggering album, one that leaves you bruised, bloody and breathless. [11 Jun 2011, p.52]
  3. It's evident from the musicianship, from the instrumentation, from the lyrics, and from the vocal delivery that Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me is a record of progression and refinement; released halfway through 2011, it will go down among the best of the heavy hitters this year.
