    How is this album considered good? How is this band considered good? This album is a bad progressive metal band disguised as a bad Warped Tour metalcore band disguised as a shockingly bad pop band. And don't give me the oh its progressive and you need to learn to like less mainstream music. No! First of all I love progressive music, this isn't progressing if every song sounds the same andHow is this album considered good? How is this band considered good? This album is a bad progressive metal band disguised as a bad Warped Tour metalcore band disguised as a shockingly bad pop band. And don't give me the oh its progressive and you need to learn to like less mainstream music. No! First of all I love progressive music, this isn't progressing if every song sounds the same and copies the same riff for 11 songs. Also, progressive metal goes on for longer than 2-5 minutes and never sounds the same. Second, just because a band isn't mainstream doesn't make them good. Look at Design The Skyline for an example of non-mainstream music, its torture. And my main standpoint with this album is that, I don't hate it. To quote the Nostalgia Chick, "...I Can not hate it because it can not fail because it can not try". Its literally the Freddy Got Fingered of metal albums. My final words are this, stop buying music by people who are pretentious and have no idea what they are doing. Expand

    While they're not without their spark and charm in places, PTH still frustrates as a band who struggle under the weight of their own ideas. [2 Apr 2011, p.52]
  2. If I had to describe Scurrilous in one word, it would be indulgent, and that's not a bad thing. When you have this much talent, I want to hear it.

    For all of its ferocity and force, though, Scurrilous is a surprisingly pleasant listen, in part due to frontman Rody Walker's high-pitched melodic vocals which belie the aggressiveness of the blistering guitars. Recommended, definitely. Diverse and innovative, definitely not.
