An incredible band that people tend to insult or overlook due to the emo genre of their music. Sure, the lyrics are depressing and Buddy Nielson's vocals do tend to whine, but that doesn't make this band any less amazing. Their songs are filled with spiraling dual guitar riffs backed by solid bass lines and powerful drum beats that don't go unnoticed. Whether Buddy is singing a beautiful ballad, screaming his lungs out or just whining like a bitch, the end result is always terrific. With each new album, the band seems to progress in many ways. With Still Searching, the band ended their psychotic murderous phase, and with Life is not a Waiting Room they added a few sprinkles of optimism and offered some insightful words of wisdom, such as "the past can't be your passion." Who knows, maybe a happy album is in the works?
