Underoath - Define The Great Line

Mariano Rivera   (7 reviews)

I tried really hard to set aside my bias against this band and go for some journalistic integrity for this review. But, after about 13 seconds into track 1, sorry, I couldn't.


This band has changed a lot since they started out, going from weird christian metal-vocaled stuff with keyboards to the second comming of Taking Back Sunday. Either way, it was always awful and made me go sleepy. This deal is nothing new. I guess its a bit "harder" than the last one, but still not inventive or original like their fan base tries to pass them off as. The psuedo-breakdowns are even more boring than the played out ones we hear in a lot of metalcore, and the fact that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM has a bed of that noise chord shit going on underneath it makes the whole album fucking unlistenable.


These chicks need to stop listening to Every Time I Die. Putting twang in your vocals is only cool if you're last name is Willams and your first name is Henry. Oh, and trying to sound all avant-garde only works if you have a little talent. The sung vocals are off-key (and don't tell me on purpose, anyone who sounds like shit on purpose deserves a slug between the eyes) and the screams sound exactly like all the other faggoty emo-core-bi-curious bags of shit currently flooding underground music.


And then theres the lyrics. Holy christ, the lyrics -
"They're watching, They're watching
I am being watched
This is overwhelming
Paranoia"

Fucking brilliantly put, wow, I've never heard anything so poignant and piercing into my soul. Suck a cock.




I also tried really hard to find something about this I could pick out and not hate with every cell of my being, but alas, this turd's as corny as it comes. Fuck this band, this style, and anyone who likes it.

It's better than "They're Only Chasing Safety", but not by a large margin.

Oh fuck me, I'm going to go ahead and say I really like it.

and mudvayne is a gret band they have changed their style up a bit with lost and found, but they are still a much better band than underoath. i'll admit though that mudvayne was better when they had ld 50 out which was their best cd.

i think metalhead pretends he listens to "hardcore" music to compensate for his little dick

I heard they were talking about going back to their roots. It doesn't seem like they tried very hard.

its sad really, this band was absolutely awesome at one point, but thanks to spencer and his "bi-cuirious ideas" this band is bull shit, the bull could of written better music, better yet im sure the shit could write better, its to bad, cries of the past and act of depression were awesome, hell even the changing of times was good, but you know wat, fuck you spencer!

1.) this is one of the reason i justify being able to hate a band before ever hearing them.



2.)ive never heard this band, but i know theyre one of the worst bands in the entire galaxy that has ever existed, so when people mention them this little device in my brain (kinda like an MIB memory eraser or communication brick wall) automatically files their taste in music under the words "shit" and "retarded"

I liked this album. I think it's a step in the right direction for the band. I wish that there would have been more of an emphasis on the synth lines and breakdowns though
