[Album] All That Remains- A War You Can Not Win
« on: November 04, 2012, 01:35:33 PM »
So All That Remains has cranked out another album. I want to like it, I really, really want to like it...but...the album just won't let me. Some of the songs start off amazingly strong, very much harkening back to The Fall of Ideals or even This Darkened Heart...but then...out of no where...fucking AUTO-TUNED LABONTE. Phil needs to give up on the clean vocals, but I'm pretty sure he isn't going to. His growls, screams and harsh vocals are as always great, the music is fine, the guitar solos aren't boring and the drumming while not extremely technical sounds good. But the clean vocals...these fucking clean vocals break the songs they're in and the single Stand Up is nothing but pitch corrected auto-tuned bullshit. I just don't know how much longer I can stick with this band....I mean there are some great PARTS of songs but the cleans usually manage to grenade the momentum that the song was gaining. I don't even dislike clean vocals...its just...overly processed autotuned cleans are totally unneeded when the rest of Phil's vocals are so strong.

5.75/10

Yeah its floating around out there, and it "officially" comes out the 6th. It has so many promising songs ruined by Phil's horrible auto tuned vocals.

There are 2 songs on this album that when combined equal out to about 1.65 good songs. I can't even listen to the radio single anymore because my girlfriend pointed out that Phil sounds like the dingledoucher from 5FDP during one of the bridge sections...and the remaining good cop/bad cop metal core paint by numbers songs just don't have enough fun in them to make repeating the formula worth it :( Dammit, Phil, quit destroying my earnest attempts to like your band...

This IS Overcome part 2...ugh....

Sucks that Trivium can put out such an awesome album as In Waves and ATR is still mediocring it up.

Phil apparently did an AMA on Reddit(digging his own grave...).  I read through it a bit and every time someone basically told him "Your new stuff sucks, why do you feel the need to use autotune" he totally just dodged the question.  It was pretty funny :lol:

Dude, Phil is retarded....he posts like very Sponty-esque rants on Twitter all the time, acts like a 15 year old most of the time and is just a goober...but at least his music was good...but hell, I have an easier time justifying why I'm a Varg Vikernes fan than why I like ATR at this point...that's fucked up bro :lol:

He seems like the kind of guy who shakes your hand extra hard just to show you that he has been working out.

Oh yeah, and he totally always takes his shirt off during his shows so you can see his GIANT NIPPLE RINGS that prove how NOT GAY he is. He is like the ultimate bro-douche-bro...I need to see if I can find them, but waaaaay back in the day, some trolls from somewhere found out his XBL tag, and trolled the fuck out of him and posted some recordings. He acted exactly like drunken Meaty, at all times....it was glorious. His stats for Halo 3 were actually pretty good doe.
