In the Dark
In the dark, in the dark Oh, I've done it again Dug a little deep, and it's all caved in Now I free fall in a black hole I know I'm getting warm... See the rest of the song lyrics

    The various dark and mechanical intermission tracks on the album make for the most experimental peaks and exciting signposts to the future, but nothing compares to ‘Nihilist Blues’, a robotic and apocalyptic blast of Eurodance featuring guest vocals and mad noises from art-pop icon Grimes.

    It's BMTH's innate ability to stay one step ahead, like they do here, that means the future remains firmly theirs. [19 Jan 2019, p.54]

    Amo is a genre-bending thrill ride that marks a brave new era for the band. Placing a significant amount of trust in their fan base, Bring Me the Horizon deliver an utterly refreshing and forward-thinking statement that finds them in complete control of their vision.

    In U2 terms,That’s the Spirit was BMTH’s Achtung Baby, where they introduced a new sound, and amo is their Zooropa, where they’ve taken that sonic evolution one step further.

    Overall, Amo is a strident record, difficult to categorize and, in a good way, uniquely spliced and sequenced with little fear of crossing boundaries--but part of mastering this dark art is knowing when to put the paintbrush down.

    Unfortunately, while amo has moments of absolute brilliance, highlighted by "Nihilist Blues," "Ouch" and "Fresh Bruises," it feels like BMTH weren't ready to fully commit to either sound and, as a result, we're left with a mixed bag of tracks that offers a little something for everyone but never quite enough.

    This album captures an occasionally combustible but largely uncomfortable sound of a previously fearless and pioneering band caught in a crisis of confidence, overriding their own musical instincts to pursue an idealised version of themselves they picture in their own heads.

    Well its only January but this is gonna be tough to beat for album of the year. It is extremely well produced and just about every song onWell its only January but this is gonna be tough to beat for album of the year. It is extremely well produced and just about every song on the album has something interesting to offer. If you're a fan of their previous work I can see why you might be let down by this album but from someone just judging the album on its own merits, it is a masterpiece! Go check it out. I've had it on repeat for the last 2 days. Expand

    Without a doubt, the best pop/rock album of 2019 in my opinion.
    It has it all, from lyrics to instrumentals and soulful melodies.

    honest score is about an 8, only giving a 10 because i see some 0 scores that are there only because the band changed their sound. Its ahonest score is about an 8, only giving a 10 because i see some 0 scores that are there only because the band changed their sound. Its a little incohesive, but overall its a pretty good album. I have been a fan since count your blessings, and I understand the frustration of the stylistic change, but with an open mind most people realise it's a pretty decent album, and much better than That's The Spirit!

    Amo ended up being one of the most captivating albums. It wears its controversy proudly and doesn't apologize for it's pop influence. TheAmo ended up being one of the most captivating albums. It wears its controversy proudly and doesn't apologize for it's pop influence. The production work here is so good it makes every song mean something. Heavy Metal is the essential track of the record as it captures the controversy and fan-based criticism perfectly and closes with some fantastic teeth that make you wish the song could go on just a little bit longer.

    On this album guys was trying to do some experimental stuff and went further away from rock and metal sound. Actually idea with trying to doOn this album guys was trying to do some experimental stuff and went further away from rock and metal sound. Actually idea with trying to do add more electronic elements are is quite interesting, but on Amo we have couple of cool rock tracks in the style of previous album, and other part which contain pop and electronic tracks, that sound not so bad but secondary, comparing to another artist in this genres, and less interest, then their previous heavier material. It's cool, that guys trying themself in new roles, but IMHO they wouldn't be as popular, as giants of music industry with such average material, alt-rock and metalcore was the scene, that perfectly fit them.
