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.

This new cd is so catchy. They are a whole different band now. It's not their best cd but it still makes ya tap your foot.

This is a good CD. Not as impressing as their last efforts but I still have a heart for this kind of stuff. They do it better than bands that sound like them.(I don't wanna say screamo).

you can't really compare the two cd's... they're too entirely diffrent.... some could say they're changing to jump on the 'screamo' bandwagon, but i think it shows a lot of progress. That, and Dallas has gotta be losing his voice by new.... always gotta switch out for fresh screamers.

At first I was like "what the fuck happened to this band", but I definitely got into it pretty fast.

i think underoath still rocks.... yeah they kinda degressed in their music, but they're making albums with a record company and quite frankly they have the power to do anything they wanna... and um...about that "thats what GOD will do to you" post.. haha, i laughed my butt off at that... just because it was the stupidest thing i've heard all...actually it's just the stupidest thing i've heard. ever think that maybe GOD put them there in the first place or are you scared to actually believe in something like that?
