    Counterparts have delivered one for the heart here, not the head. [20 Jul 2013, p.54]

    11 tracks with all the anguish that melodic hardcore thrives on, but with enough testosterone to keep it on the right side of whiney.

    While there isn't much on display that will impress those with little desire for more of the same, genre buffs or fans of Counterparts' first two full-lengths will find the absence of filler and spirited momentum more than agreeable.

    There’s a lot to appreciate, whether you like screamo, face-punching hardcore, pop-punk, or some combination of all those sounds and more.

    My favorite album. Dark in some parts, light when it needs to be, and all around heavy. Top to bottom this album shows through in through howMy favorite album. Dark in some parts, light when it needs to be, and all around heavy. Top to bottom this album shows through in through how different Counterparts is from all other hardcore bands. The technical aspect this band brings to the hardcore genres makes you never want to listen to simple structured songs again for example check tracks "Soil" and "Cursed". The lyrics are much more ambiguous than their previous material, which makes it some much more interesting to listen to and to discover their true meanings. I can't see how anyone who would call themselves a "hardcore" fan not think this album is perfect. Expand

    Great album! The lyrics are amazing. Very accessible neo-post-hardcore that doesn't fall into all the detrimental cliches many bands do theseGreat album! The lyrics are amazing. Very accessible neo-post-hardcore that doesn't fall into all the detrimental cliches many bands do these days. Counterparts do their own thing and they're great musicians. One of my favorite albums of the past years. Get it! Expand

    Very good album. Looks like Counterparts grew up just a bit. The music is still loud and excellent and the lyrics are well written. IVery good album. Looks like Counterparts grew up just a bit. The music is still loud and excellent and the lyrics are well written. I discovered this band back in 12 and have liked all of their material. This by far is my favorite album from them. Very few albums I can listen to from start to finish this is one of them. Check them out you will not be disappointed. Expand
