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.

Their old drummer, Will, did sing on the first CD, and that's why the singing on The Silent Circus is so shitty, since he isn't on that CD.

i myself like they're only chasing safety better. but there is a big difference between it and cries of the past so i can see how people say that they have degressed

There old stuff rocks, it's some seriously bad ass stuff. However, this album is catchy as hell, and I happen to like it. As good as their old stuff? No way. Good in it's own right and if not compared to their older stuff? Yes.
