Bullet For My Valentine- Fever

Music-
Top Notch, really thrashy riffs, pretty kickass solos and overall great musicianship.

Vocals-
Kill the album, besides the occasional gang style scream backup vocals, it is filled with very whiny sounding vocals. If I give this more spins on the myspace player, I guess I'll do my best to pretend this is an instrumental band

Interesting. I was obligated to listen to the last album, and was pleasantly surprised, but hated them prior to that.

The last one wasn't flawless, but was at least a real metal album. I don't remember hating the vocals too much.

I'll give this a listen at some point.

I know alot of people don't like this band, especially the singer, but I actually liked a few songs off of their first one and Scream Aim Fire was a pretty solid release. I'm definitely going to check this one out.

I have listened to most of it. It is alright for sure a step down from Scream,Aim,Fire.

They need a new singer in the same way that Avenged Sevenfold do, good bands fronted by guys who can't sing to save their life. Then again, they're hugely popular so what do I know...

What the fuck are you guys talking about? Scream Aim Fire was fucking awful aside from 3 songs or so.

I agree, and I would have a hard time even finding three songs I like. Their vocals are just beyond bad. I remember when they first came out and Zombie had them opening...they got the shit booed out of them, then got kicked off the tour a few shows in.

If by drop you mean layer on more and more of, then yes.

I really do like the music on this one, but god damn the vocals suck!
