The album begins with the quiet yet haunting intro “Absolute Future,” which makes you realize that we have a new and improved Fear Before. The lyric “Everything will not be made right,” is repeated several times until the intro seamlessly leads into the blistering “Drowning The Old Hag.” “Hag” is one of the harder songs on the album and one of the few that’ll remind you of Art Damage. One thing you’ll notice is the battle between melody and discord throughout this track and the rest of the album. Another thing to pick up on is the fact that lead vocalist David Marion has added singing to the mix, something he did nothing of on Art Damage. The next track, “Mouth,” is more experimental, replacing crushing guitars and fierce screams with raspy vocals, crashing cymbals, and a technical vibe. “Taking Cassandra To The End Of The World Party” is one of the best songs on the album and is full of diversity. It begins with a jittery key chord and a needling guitar tone. This track is trippy as hell, to hear it in its full glory, listen to it with headphones on. Marion’s anxious yells combined with Fisher’s creepy falsetto makes this one of the standout tracks in Fear Before’s entire discography. “Ten Seconds To Los Angeles” has sort of a industrial feel to it, and the guitars wail and strike throughout. Fisher's high vocals add a nice contrast to Marion’s brutal roar as Fisher and Zach Hutchings kick in with the guitars, and Brandon Proff brings it on the kit. Proff recorded all the drumming on the album, but he has left the band and has been replaced by Clayton Holyoak. “The Waiting Makes Me Curious” brings the overall pace of the album down about 100 mph and waddles on. It’s not my favorite track on the album, but it shows how far Fear Before has come on their musicianship, as the ending is very climatic and redeems the first few minutes of the track. “High As A Horse” begins with a sharp key chord and the guitars are the driving force in this track. The vocal work by Fisher and Marion really make this song what it is. The anxiety is present in the chorus, and the rousing yell of “It was a damn good plan!” really make this song stand out for me. Again, the constant fight between melody and discord is evident here. “Dog Sized Bird” really showcases Proff’s drum skills and Johnson’s work with the keys are highlights of this track, as again, Fear Before is trying something different, this time showing off a little Nine Inch Nails’ influence. The track fades out into “Complete And Utter Confusion,” which begins with fuzzed out vocals and leads into Marion’s barking vocals and guitars that bust your balls. “…As A Result Of Signals Being Crossed” begins with an atmospheric mood to it, and is calm with gentle vocals for the first two minutes, then the assault begins, as Marion and crew unleash. “My (Fucking) Deer Hunter” follows, and what we get is the best song on the album. A soft techno vibe with low, scrambled vocals from Marion sets this up as a very mysterious song. Then the band kicks in and Fisher's improved singing shines, while Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green singing backup. The guitars are shrill, the rhythm section is vibrant, and the overall setting of the song is very dark, very moody, and very good. This leads us into the exhilarating “Lycanthropy,” which was the first new song Fear Before put on their Myspace over the summer. This song was the song that first showed me that Fear Before was on to something different and better and really made me excited for this record. The contrast between verse and chorus is great. “A Brief Tutorial In Bachanalia” reminds me a bit of “Should Have Stayed In The Shallows,” with its beginning lyrics describing alcohol consumption. It’s an intense song, with the double bass kick from Proff and Mike Madruga’s bass thunders down. One more time does Fear Before balance between a frenzied pace and chilled pace, and again it works out very well. The bridge and climatic ending really slays and ends the song on a killer note. “A Gift For Fiction” rips through your eardrums with its bombastic beginning and unforgiving vocals. The drumming shines here as well. This drum fill leads into the final track “Absolute Past,” which concludes the album in the same fashion it started in. The drums and guitars march on and the band chants together “Everything will not be made right” at the end. So, just like an excellent story or speech, the album comes full circle with that one lyric, thus ending this adventurous album in such a way that leaves you wanting more and waiting to see what this band comes up with next.
