I've been away! D:

How was everyone's Easter? Mine was pretty good. I finished my traffic school for the ticket I got, I was doing 73 in a 45, lol. A quick question, are you of you into Post-hardcore, like Asking Alexandria?

Anyway! I was thinking for this blog post I self review Asking Alexandria's new album, "Reckless and Relentless". Let's get started!
1 - "Welcome" Length: 1:49.  I LOVE this introduction the album. The buildup for it is fantastic, and unleashes a completely different sound than what I was use to from them as a band. I give the song an 9/10, just because they had changed so much since the last album.
2. - "Dear Insanity" Length: 3:10.  If you listen to the lyrics of the song, it is actually very touching. Danny's new voice is finally released in track numero dos. I was so pleased when there wasn't any AutoTune. :D 7/10
3 - "Closure" Length: 3:58.  A true rock and roll song. The chorus to this song is SO catchy. 9/10.
4 - "A Lesson Never Learned" Length: 3:55.  I like to think of this song, as when he was writing, was rock bottom. He obviously was going through a rough time, and poured himself into this song. He brought his true character, the one he masks on the interior. 10/10 (Also, the chorus is also insanely catchy)
5 - "To The Stage" Length: 3:31.  I can't really explain this song, all I know is I love it! It's definitely my favorite song off of the album. It will also be the first song off of the album that they're doing a video for. I can't wait! 10/10
6 - "Dedication" Length: 1:03.  Similar to the track "Hiatus" off of their last album, Stand Up and Scream. This track, however, is not trance. It is an actor, speaking. 6/10.
7 - "Someone, Somewhere" Length: 3:37.  The "softest" track on the album, but terrific nonetheless. Danny's singing really, really come through on this song. Also, the acoustic version is amazing. 8/10
8 - "Breathless" Length: 4:10.  I really do not like this song, it's the only track on the album I do not like. 4/10
9 - "The Match" Length: 4:16. I love the meaning behind this song. (Well, what I think it means anyway) 8/10
10 - "Another Bottle Down" Length: 3:34. This is more of the "rock bottom" of the album. You can tell he was dealing with being an alcoholic, and that really affected the song. 8/10
11 - "Reckless and Relentless" Length: 4:08. The most "rock and roll" track. The guitar isn't metal at all, it gives off sort of an 80's feel to it. I love it. 9/10
12 - "Morte Et Dabo" Length: 5:15. The, hands down, heaviest song on the album. Best song on the album, too. 10/10
