    On their third album, these dizzying British metalcore chemists swing erratically in an effort to shake genre conventions, flirting with dystopic Max Headroom stutter, electro gloom, and tender indie-folk cuddles.

    By-the-numbers breakdowns, tired metalcore riffing, and cliched lyrics are still very much part of the group's formula. It's too bad since the band has plenty of energy and ambition. [Nov/Dec 2010, p.94]

    Amazing album! it is probably there best album yet. It just runs shivers up your spine every time you hear Oliver Sykes (Lead Singer) sing andAmazing album! it is probably there best album yet. It just runs shivers up your spine every time you hear Oliver Sykes (Lead Singer) sing and scream. 'It Never Ends" is my favorite song from the album along with "Dont Go", "Crucify Me" and **** . It's going to take me along time to not listen to these songs for a day.
    I just love it. :)

    A lot of bands like with this kind of style make their way through their careers by riding on the backs of their fan girls and the scene kids.A lot of bands like with this kind of style make their way through their careers by riding on the backs of their fan girls and the scene kids. Bring Me the Horizon Goes against that trend. This is an evolution for the band. They experiment in all of the right areas here and have created one of the best metal albums you can find.

    The heaviness of the genre is mixed with more emotional tones. Lead singer Oliver Sykes pours out his inner emotions into every song. It leads to a mix of powerful vocals and wonderfully written lyrics. The lyrics are a real strong point for the album. Hooks are catchy and the symbolism is spot on. There's a sense of maturity and depth in the writing that you don't get from many hardcore/metalcore bands. It make sit all more of a joy to listen to.

    This album is heavy and addicting. It's some of the most enjoyable metal I have heard in a long time, if not ever. The band shows that they are no longer only willing to focus on a specific audience. Instead they reach out to the entire metal community. The results are satisfying even if the instrumental rely on the same heavy riffs that the genre is full of every now and then. It's a fantastic album and I give it a 9.9/10.
