CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
The band's detractors will probably complain that the template remains firmly in place, and the band is aimlessly trekking through well-trodden terrain, but by returning to their roots, Bullet for My Valentine seem to have reignited the spark that made their early work so vital.

NME
Musically they’re rolling back the years, but the screams of betrayal and agony ring decidedly hollow these days.

The Guardian
Unfortunately, the things that have always turned diehard metal fans off this band are still present: the hackneyed, angsty lyrics (increasingly unbefitting of a man Tuck’s age) and the shamelessly generic pop-rock choruses, which consistently set off the false-metal alarm.

DIY
There’s nothing here we haven’t heard before.

Exclaim!
Unfortunately, the lack of quality choruses leaves something to be desired. While their heaviest output won't win over any elitists, fans will also have trouble finding something here to sing along to.

It's ok, just kidding this is my fav BFMV album.
NR
Although this album is leagues ahead of the pity release of Temper Temper. The marks where missed and attention was lost. However the songs did stick in the head after the first few listens which helps the long life of the album.

Yes. Not unbelievable, but still good. I don"t know why it's rated so low...
