Bring Me the Horizon -- There is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There is a Heaven, Let's Keep it a Secret


It's been less than a year since I posted a rambling 5/10 review for this album.
Absurdly, I still find myself popping it in from time to time...why?  I don't understand it. I hate this band's image. I hate their dumb, profane, narcissistic lyrics. I hate how repetitive some of the songs get, and how some of the four minute tracks seem to go on for four hours.  I hate that I've listened to the song "It Never Ends" more than all but five other songs in the last two years.

I mean, look at this dude. He looks like a frat boy from hell. And that stupid, overdramatic intro, and that cheesy choir, and that chopped-up post-chorus, and that pretentious ambient section before the outro...CRAP!!! I'm listening to it again...

This band is complete garbage. More than any other post-hardcore/screamo metal band that blew up in the last couple years, this band is the most undeserving. I really honestly cannot see what people saw in this shit. Thanks for at least admitting it is worthless garbage. The whole scene this is involved with is terrible, I cannot say enough about how much I can't stand any of this bull shit. Sorry, figured this was as good of place as any to vent my feelings on this topic. 2/10 stars, just because it takes a bit of talent to play the instruments, I will give them that much credit. You'll NEVER see me into this scene.

Remember when Decoy originally reviewed this and Dylan gave it a 5/5? Then Bill got pissed and posted a new 1/5 review in its place. Then Dylan said he was just really high when he wrote his review and recanted...that's what this music is to me--a big ugly mess.
This stuff absolutely I'ma go listen to it again.
Seriously, if you pull up one of this band's songs on Youtube, and click on any of the recommended videos on the rightt at random, you will have to buy a new keyboard because your current one will be inundated with vomit. I think I listen to it sometimes because it is like that herbal tea that tastes like pee, or that probiotic goat milk that tastes like dirty socks: every now and then I just want something nasty.

To be honest, I wasn't on Decoy when the actually review came out but kind of skimmed through some of the comments. I first heard of this listening to a the Metalhammer podcast, and they too, glorified this album actually putting it in their Top 3 albums of 2010. And since I dug a lot of the music they promoted through listening to the podcast, and discovered some of my now favorite artists, I looked them up and was totally confused. It was then that I realized that there is this whole other world of garbage music taking over the world that I just couldn't wrap my mind around how it got so big. Anyway, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks its garbage (for a while there, I thought I was missing something and perhaps I had bad music taste). I don't mind the occasional probiotic goat yogurt and herbal tea, knowing it actually may do a body good, but this does nothing good to the body, and said herbal tea is likely required to cleanse the body, mind, and spirit after a dose of listening to this.

True. It's kind of like probiotic goat milk where the biotic is influenza.
