COLORS By Between the Buried and Me
Let me first start off by saying this album is NOT for everyone. The vocals in some of these songs are screaming, and some of the sudden changes in musical style may not be appealing to you. Second off let me say, if you can open up your mind to it this album is AMAZING! They blend progressive, scremo, melodic death metal, pop, alternative rock, and hair metal, into an INSANE mix, with great results. As you may know between the buried and me was influenced by Dream Theater and many other progressive metal bands. That being said this is there most technical album to date. Remember Selkies? Good song. Remember the sweeps at the end. Well you will find those all over this album. So much that it can feel like a huge guitar solo at times! It’s awesome. The album starts out with a nice piano solo strange and relaxing, but somehow awesome at the same time. Then leads into a full out metal militia. The strangest parts are the sudden genera changes like the country breakdown in ants in the sky. It’s funny but awesome! But my favorite track the one I recommend the most Prequel to the Sequel. A story about a TREE? Yeah, featuring awesome guitar and amazing drums this song has won the award in my book.
So overall this album is definitely not for everyone, but if you go into it with an open mind you will find greatness. 8 out of 10
