Don't You Fake It Tracklist:
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is one of those groups that are not getting any Grammy awards or anything like that but there music is rewarding to its own! One who listens to this album will get an omnipresent voice and a rhythm section that sounds semi Blink 182! It's a satisfying sound that washes over you! Get the album!
This album contains some decent instrumentals and song construction. Most of the time I enjoyed the guitars and percussion. Even things like hand claps made for surprisingly good moments in some of the songs. Instrumentally, they kind've remind me of Papa Roach, which is pretty good, but I just can't get past the vocals. Right off the bat, the vocals are far too common and forgettable. They get lost in the driving and intense instrumentals. Then he screams and it goes from boring to awful. I absolutely hate screamo. It's sad, because there were songs that i really liked parts of, but i still had to delete them becuase the screaming ruined them. The stats on this album are pretty bad. There's one 3 star song, two 2 star songs, and the rest are all throwaways. The album is mostly weak 2 star songs. The two strong 2 star songs are keepers, the rest are junk. The slower songs are the worst ones. Regret is the one decent song on this album. It's the one time that the singer actually manages to hold it together for a whole tune. Honestly, this album isn't bad, but it's not good enough to bother with in a world with finite Ipod hard drives.
i absolutely love this album, every song is a whole new emotional story and u can feel the tension and emotion with every song. especially your guardian angel!that song makes me cry every time i listen :”)
The album and the artists themselves are amazing. Their music holds a special place in my heart, and it's some of the lowkey screaming music that I love (: They're very talented and I love RJA with all my heart (:
This is the first album I ever heard from this band, and it was always hold a special place in my heart. It’s really the first band that got me into any type of music with screaming in it (even though it’s minimal here). I am zoo happy they put it back on iTunes. Instrumentally, the band really know how to write catchy hooks and the occasional breakdown. Lyrically, this is a very relatable album, but all of Ronnie’s lyrics have always been good. Vocally, Ronnie sounds great and he still does. He has a unique voice for the genre. My favorite tracks include: “Face Down”, “In Fate’s Hands”, “False Pretense”, “Cat and Mouse” and “Your Guardian Angel”…but all the songs are great. There is no filler. This is a must have for any long time or new fans. Recommended buy. Keep up the good work RJA!!! Can’t for the new album.
