This disc starts out with the icy “First Light” that is kind of spooky. “Last Light” even reminds me of early Swiz for about half a verse and half a chorus. Then this record makes a left turn at the screamo exit and never gets off the off ramp. I can understand wanting to branch out, but why Epitaph thinks this is good I’ll never know. If you like Cave In or Korn or if you’re looking for something to make your ears bleed, pick this up. You Fail Me has absolutely no redeeming social value whatsoever. I’ll be using this as a beer coaster and putting the latest Motörhead back on the stereo to get some good metal on.
