TODAY I WAIT: Timelines: CD

Jun 04, 2008

I was so ready to hear another emo record. This thing was crying out emo. The name, artwork, and title were leading me to believe that this was more emo. I was thrown for a loop and bombarded with some metalcore (“hardcore” for you kids). The guitars screamed some heavy riffage as the double bass drums galloped along. The vocals screamed out of the speakers. I was taken aback. The only letdown was the cover of “Bullet,” which, if you didn’t know, was originally done by the Misfits. It just didn’t feel like the song was appropriate for their musical stylings. Only one minus with many plusses.
