    I didn't hate this. Which is surprising for music from a band I associated with the swoopy-haired emokids in early 00s high school. The kids who hated every other kind of "metal," wouldn't refer to this as such, and only listened to this and pop-punk. Man, that takes me back :lol:

    Anyway, kudos to this band for branching out a bit.

    Yes "Wishing Wells" definitely sets off the whole album. "In Blood" is another incredible song...especially that powerful breakdown towards the end of the song...heck most all of the songs have that one huge breakdown that is truly tasteful. I just ordered it from amazon and cannot wait to jam to it in my truck. :cool:

    Spot on, I've tried earlier stuff, but it just reminds me of cookie cutter metalcore done jut about well enough to sell records. Just does not do it for me.

    So I've been really surprised how much I like this album.

    I haven't listened to this band since like 2009, but Wishing Wells sounds like it came of an In Flames album 15 years ago so that's cool.

    I love Horizons, but also loved Deep Blue. They've definitely changed their sound a lot over the years towards the arena rock element. Dating all the way back to "Idols and Anchors" off Horizons, I think somewhere along the way they realized that they had more fun having the audience since the melodies with them, rather than barking lyrics off the stage like most metalcore bands tend to do. While I don't really like their newer stuff, I can see why they did it. They seem like adrenaline junkies based on their love of surfing...clearly they want to have a big party every time they take the stage, and their years of adolescent rage and breakdowns are likely behind them. It is pretty easy to see the evolution with songs like "Wild Eyes" becoming big sing-alongs, then Ire having that 80's rock anthem vibe, etc.

    Deep Blue is their very best IMO. I haven't liked Ire and that video in this thread earlier sounds so different than their past stuff.....kinda meh....have to look into the cd....
