    Ferocious and beautiful--Funeral For A Friend sound more like themselves than they have done in years.
  2. Top to bottom this album feels like a classic; a show stopper. No thrills, no cheap tricks and gimmicks.

    Funeral For A Friend have always been ordinary chaps with ordinary ambitions. Yet That masks something important: there is extraordinary heart in what they do. And there is much of that here. [21 Mar 2011, p.50]

    FFAF have produced another pop-punk special with Welcome Home Armageddon--and, thankfully, they don't look like stopping any time soon.

    The two-edged sword concerning Welcome Home Armageddon is that it is far from perfect. That room for improvement factor is exciting, but instead of looking too far into the future, listeners should just be pleased that Funeral For A Friend are out of oblivion and once more cause for some deep conversation.

    This is a fast-tempo, punk and metal-tinged homage to days gone by and those yet to come and, as a result, may well be the band's best effort since their much-lauded debut.

    The one thing the album really lacks, though, is an obvious single. While many songs are memorable, there is nothing that suggests any of the tracks have the classic quality of "Juneau," "History," "Streetcar" or "Into Oblivion (Reunion)."

    While Welcome Home Armageddon isn't quite in a class with 2005's Hours or 2007's Tales Don't Tell Themselves, this 2011 release nonetheless indicates that Funeral for a Friend have a lot of life left in them.

    Armageddon is a sop to the disaffected fans of FFAF's pomp, and in seeking to recapture their ardour it tries too hard to pander to their needs. And from the few tracks that evidence what could have been, that's a shame.

    Welcome Home offers both a different approach and a welcome return.
