    Their best album to date. [Apr 2013, p.85]

    This is how you do post-hardcore in 2013 without sounding like a relic. [23 Mar 2013, p.54]

    Ultimately these well-place segues are but a welcome respite from the pummeling power of the riff.
  4. Produced by Shaun Lopez (Far, Deftones), the sound and shape of each Renacer is clean and spacious.

    Renacer paints a clear portrait of a band lacking the courage and will to abandon the tendencies they have clearly grown out of and no longer stand behind.

    A band that really grew on me a year or so ago has certainly come a long way since their primary sound in From the Depths. Of course, I cannot consider myself a fan from the start, but I can appreciate how far they have come, and I have loved pretty much every song they have ever put out. So to hear such a differentiation in sound blew me away; they have certainly switched to a far heavier sound, but the lyrics are inspirational as always, and it being such a gamble on their part, they have earned my utmost respect.

    I'm hoping the next album they put out is just as well executed.

    It's great to see a band like Senses Fail that has all the potential to be a great hardcore band put their strengths together and make what they've always wanted to. Some will be upset that they've taken this path away from their pop punk/emo rock stages and went with a heavy raw sound, but not me and the same will go for many hardcore fans who come across this album. Absolutely fantastic. Expand
