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.

you are a faggot and that is so untrue. underoath is 1 of the most popular bands around right now, but nowhere near 1 of the best. this band with spencer in it is trash. if you want the real good underoath go back from acts of depresion to the changing of times. after that underoath became emo and trashy i hate them now and not because they are popular but because they make shitty music.

i've never heard that 1 so i'm not going to talk about whether it is good or bad. i expect that it would be good, but i'm not sure. don't try and make me seem like i haven't heard of this bands old stuff because i have and i probably will get that cd soon, but it costs to fucking much on the only place that i can find it (www.amazon.com). i'll get it soon though.

No one is going to nail anything to a flagpole, and you are still retarded.

the review is true, the band is nothing like they used to be. the lyrics are probably some of the worst lyrics ever written in music and are pure emo i hate my life everyone hates me lyrics. all the lyrics are are just appealing to the fans who actually like this terrible ass cd. here is 1 of my favorite lines that i heard when i listened to this cd to see if they actually went to their old ways. in moving for the sake of motion aaron does his terrible whiny bitchy singing that sucks. he says "truthfully i hate the me that i have become" this is definently i hate my life i want to die lyrics. this is an emo band now more than ever. fuck underoath, thye have lost all of my respect too.

ahh fuck this. im not wasting any more time with every idiot who spends there entire time on pahardcore/stereokiller on this review which sinse has been posted hasnt been anything exept battle of weak arguments that has pushed this bull shit over the limits. if Elliot or Jimmycakes or metalhead225544 or any other fucker is just going to try and bitch me out again, i dont care cause i am not getting involved in this whole shit zone. by the way Elliot, my friend said that he wouldnt expect a great music taste out of someone who likes circle of dead children. END OF DISCUSION.

Shut up this band was never that good

i mean really if i found 5 other people to start a band and say we're christian and have a keyboard player and play in drop D and a power chords we'd be the next big thing. hell we could do some harmonies/octaves and we'd be black metal.

i can barely play and i could do this shit.
and to top its not like this is new you could almost name any eara of music and theres a list of bands that jumped on the bandwagon when it got big. it happens all of the dam time so don't get pissy when some one points out the obvious. christ turn on mtv or vh1 and watch a music or "I love the **" show and your gonna see it.
