    Angry and scathing, Radke's return is welcome.

    Finally, this rock star has some rock worthy of the same name. [23 Jul 2011, p.50]

    This combination of a tight, talented band and a tortured frontman doesn't necessarily make Falling in Reverse a revelatory band, but is does make The Drug in Me Is You a very solid album that will give fans of Radke's a chance to get reacquainted with the notorious post-hardcore bad boy.
  4. For most, the record will be too much--it's messy, it's overdone, it's arrogant, and ultimately it's disappointing – making Radke's return not really worth the wait.

    Fashionably Late is entirely, unintentionally hilarious. [Aug 2013, p.96]

    This album marked the return of former "Escape the Fate" singer Ronnie Radke's return to music with a new band. This album is kind if like Radke's way of talking about what he has been through in life. It details his stint in prison, his past drug addiction, issues with Escape the Fate, as well as some family history. It's all a way of showing how those past experiences made him who he is today. It's really interesting to hear about the dudes past, especially when he puts the stories into songs that sound this fantastic.

    Everything sounds great. It's an excellent combination of rock and screamo. The lyrics are also very well written. When Radke isn't throwing out attacks at Escape the Fate or bragging about his sexual prowess, he's tossing out lyrics that are deep and downright profound. It can get pretty ballsy at times. The album is angry, energetic, and a welcome way to reintroduce Ronnie Radke back into the music scene. As far as I'm concerned this is one of the best rock albums that I've ever listened to, and I can't wait to see where Radke takes "Falling in Reverse" in the future.

    After Ronnie's jail time his comeback album for his new band is as awesome as I could have hoped for it to be! I don't know which is my favorite, The Drug in Me or I'm Not a Vampire! Expand

    A great way for Ronnie Radke to let out his feeling to the full with the help of his awesome band members. A really good mix of heavy songs like "Raised By Wolves" and then just plain WTF still awesome songs like "Tragic Magic" Expand

    Before Fashionably Late there was this; just plain old teenage angst ridden, diary entry, post-hardcore, screamo clichéd The Drug in Me Is You. There's nothing really special about the album and bands have already mixed the genre with pop-punk before, but better. The songs are performed well by the musicians and Ronnie does a decent job of singing (which compliments the instrumentation quite well), but the record is let down by its "me against the world" lyrics which are full of clichés, clearly Ronnie is still bitter about his previous band Escape the Fate and his detractors (and despite writing the album in prison over a period of 4 years, time was not spent wisely). Despite this its worth a listen if you were a fan of Ronnie or just want to listen to the rather well performed guitar work or just wanted to see what the fuss was about. Standout tracks are the title track and I'm Not a Vampire. Expand
