In the Dark

    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.

    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!

From total pop with medicine and mother tongue, rock with in the dark, mantra and heavy metal, metal with wonderful life and sugar honey ice and tea, And some combination between electronica and rock with nihilist blues. The perfect moment is the ending with “i don’t know what to say” they just put out all that they’ve learned through all this years. Expand

    This is their most innovative effort up to this day. It's definitely an album which requires the listener to fully concentrate while listening.

    What a clusterfuk. Not sure BMTH knows what direction to take at this point. There are some really good track on here like MANTRA, wonderfulWhat a clusterfuk. Not sure BMTH knows what direction to take at this point. There are some really good track on here like MANTRA, wonderful life, medicine but also some really awful tracks like why you gotta kick me when im down and in the dark. A good clusterfuk of a mess is what this is. Expand

    The good album with a sound evolution for BMTH. If you have follow the sound of his albums, you could decide that the sound was changed andThe good album with a sound evolution for BMTH. If you have follow the sound of his albums, you could decide that the sound was changed and progressed with adding electronic elements. And it's great that the band is not seating on one place.
    But I very love his "Semptiternal" album - it's brilliant and masterpiece, it's benchmark. I'm sure that "Amo" is lowest quality of sound with "Semptiternal" in comparing. Totally, Amo has 7 score from me

    Wow. Just wow. How can one album be this all over the place? This has zero cohherence, like literally none, listening to this album fromWow. Just wow. How can one album be this all over the place? This has zero cohherence, like literally none, listening to this album from beginning to end feels like a party playlist made by 30 different people. The general sound is very mixed. The album has horrible radio quality songs, it has some fun electronic and it has your classic alternative rock music with adventerous influences. Allthough I am not going crazy about it, i would be suprised if an album will flash me as hard as this one in 2019. Expand
