Underoath - They're Only Chasing Safety

I will start by saying I liked this band better when they played black metal. I will also say that this EP is a regression from their last release, which was a regression from their last release. MY guess is they're trying to get paid, which I can't say I blame them for, if you had a chance to make more money doing something you love, then go for it. Even though their genre ( and if someone calls them screamo I'm going to lose it.) is still completely different then what they started at, they still stand worlds above the other bands similar to them. And I will stick by my opinion that the singer has a good singing voice. But my big beef is: if you're going to have clean vocals.... stop fucking screaming. That's pretty much all I have to say about this.

I wasn't trying to fuckin offend you. Fuck. It's just this whole Christian Black Metal shit doesn't make sense to me.

First of all Underoath was never BLACK METAL...what the fuck are you thinking?? Second of all, they are getting worse and worse. Far too emo. I did like seeing them live but that was a while ago. I can safely say they are piss poor crybaby emo now.

you really cant hate on them.They were awesome with Dallas, and they are still good now.Its just that people cant understand the insane tranzition between members of the band.Basically this is Underoath gone Tooth and Nail.Amen.

when i saw them in pittsburgh two years ago i thought they were awesome. it was a great show zao and unearth were definatly better but i thought these guys were pretty good. the changing of times was a fairly good cd in my opinion. how does this one sound in comparison?
