Underoath - Define The Great Line

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.

Wow, even though I know I will get shit for posting, I don't care. You people honestly need to give up on life, you can't justify your opinions with anything that makes sense. Other than "ThEsE GUYZ SuCKK!". It is quite obvious to anyone with any shred of common sense that you guys definitley are obviously some of the most egotistical morons, on the internet. The drummer who is singing isn't off key, because I'm sure key is something you know nothing about. Narrow minded people like yourselves will never achieve anything, because you think you are the only people that can be right about whatever it is you're arguing about. Wrong. Underoath has obviously done something right, regardless of what you say. I wouldn't mind being in their band ever, if that makes me as you fools like to say it "A Gay Pussy" then whatever. Bands that you say "Suck" don't actually suck, you are just elitist's. Any band, or artist must have done something right to be on a major, or indepent label I don't care if it's Iron Maiden, or Kelly Clarkson. They are good at what they do regardless of what you could ever say about them.

You guys are most definitley characters, but yeah to set the record straight Underoath is far from my favorite band I just respect the undeniable talent they have. A band doesn't get on to a label because they suck. But I'm guessing you know very little about the buisness.

you are right because this band doesn't suck they just put out a terrible cd and r going down the sellout path. how can u start at cries of the past to this emo shit that sucks so much fat dick. and every 1 of his notes are off tune and his voice isn't the worst it's just that he stretches it too far sometimes and it sounds bad plus it is a little repetitive with that whiny ass voice he has. this band is definently not hardcore or metal anymore. worst and most disappointing release in years!!!!!

Just because I'm 16 does not make me ignorant. Music Business is something I've had a serious interest in/As of over a year ago or so by now something I've involved myself in. I'm not going to say I know more then Pip, because that in fact would be ignorant, I will have a actual conversation with someone just pm me. Because I'd like this thread to atleast try to stay on topic.

You don't have to be on a label to be a part of the business to be involved but I'll tell you that as of now, I'm in my second year of my Audio Engineering program, where its not just audio, but we spend atleast an hour a day learning a business so that has helped me organize my own stuff, and the program has a partnership with Full Sail which I'm sure pip is familiar with, where I'll probably go to furter my education in music business.

And this is coming from who? Oh yeah, someone that spends the majority of his time, trying to have dominion over everyone one of the arguements that you have with a person. While you can't validate anything you say with anything significant, other then some uncultivated little phrase (Example, the post you just made). I'll have a conversation with someone that is willing to have knowledge in what they are talking about, I'd respect them for that, and hey I'd come away from it feeling a little enlightened.

I'm not trying to sound smart, but like I said if you want to keep this up send a private message. That way people won't have to deal with bickering. And the thread can actually be related to Underoath.
