The Campaign by Affiance
Kings of Deceit
You Will Be Replaced
We The Machines
Bohemian featuring Matty Mullins
Peace of Mind
I started out listening to this album, and was in complete denial. Example of thoughts:
No. I can't listen to this. No Secret Revealed is the better album. Why am I listening to this?
Then I had an epiphany along the lines of HOLY CRAP THIS IS AMAZING!
My music teacher once said to me that music that takes a while for you to really enjoy will be enjoyed for much longer, and that the chances of you getting sick of it are much slimmer.
She was very right about that. It took me a few weeks to really appreciate this album, and now I can listen to it over and over for weeks on end and I will NEVER get sick of it.
My favourite songs on the album are "You Will Be Replaced," "Class Dismissed," (Why aren't they playing this in concert?!?!) and "Righteous Kill." Although all of the songs are awesome, those still are the best.
You can anticipate intricate guitar work accompanied with excellent vocals with tremendous range and a heavy bass line played also by the bass drum. The drummer is fantastic, the lead singer is friggin amazing, the guitarists are phenomenal, and the bassist is awesome. You can't get a band better than Affiance when it comes to musical skill.
I suggest you check out this album, you won't be disappointed.
Look forward to a new Album of the Week every Saturday!
