Rise or Die Trying Reviews

Reviewer :    (90/100)
Date : 
데뷔앨범에서 들려줬던 Pop Punk 노선에서 Hardcore 색채를 섞어 놓은 두번째 정규앨범으로 Pop Melody의 편안하고 즐거운 접근방식과 Beatdown part를 이용한 다채롭고 유연하면서도 살짝의 완급조절요소가 잘 녹여있다. 기본 베이스가 Pop Punk라서 그런지 Beatdown을 제외하면, 그냥 Pop Punk라고 느낄 수 있지만, 이 'Beatdown'이 곡 흐름의 아주 재미있는 요소가 되어 있다. 간혹, Unclean vocal을 적절히 활용해서 약간의 공격성을 불어 넣은 것도 괜찮았다.

Killing Track : Prepare to Be Digitally Manipulated

Best Track : Abandon Ship or Abandon All Hope / Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die / Wrecked 'Em? Damn Near Killed 'Em / Catastrophe / Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Hell / Beatdown in the Key of Happy
