Both of these songs are a must have for Alexisonfire fans and a great example of how talented this band are as they have done their home work and chosen two iconic Aussie rock songs and given them a unique but respectful twist, just like good covers should.

Continual improvement should never be frowned upon. ‘In Dreams’ might have a typical design that has moments of indifference but as a whole it is effective enough. For now at least.

A Day To Remember fans should be very happy with this record even though the majority of it is among the lighter of the band's material. After a few spins some hefty debate could be held to determine if this is one of their best.

These are the darkest, longest and heaviest songs that this band has ever put out. In a lot of ways this release signals a nod to Alexisonfire’s musical influences, consolidating their punk and hardcore roots with the beautiful melodies that have come to characterise their sound. It’s hard to see that this sort of sound will be the future direction of Alexisonfire or make it to a studio album, but it’s certainly a refreshing change, especially for those who weren’t too fussed with “Old Crows / Young Cardinals”.

All That Remains continue to strengthen their sound. Brief periods of repetition should not detract from what is otherwise a decent release. At the end of the day, it is another step forward and that ultimately should be the only prerequisite come every studio album.

Arrows have maintained their position as one of the best bands this country has to offer, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world catches on. This record is one that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

It is good to see a band buck the trend and prove that not all metalheads are satanic sadists who are socially awkward (so says the outdated stereotype). Buy ‘Home’ for the DVD component; the CD is just a little incidental bonus. Overall, a decent collection and more importantly a solid reflection of the band’s past, present and future endeavours.

Fans may be slightly restless with the constant alterations to the Abigail Williams musical blueprint. This is understandable. ‘In the Absence of Light’ is again distant to its predecessor. If this is the band’s decided style then let us hope they stick with it long enough to see it evolve and inevitably improve for both the fans and members of the band’s sake alike.

This record is on par with the brilliance of the band's earlier EPs, and features the type of music that will not age quickly and can be enjoyed over and over again. Angelas Dish have returned from their small break refreshed and with one of the best alternative rock albums to come out of Australia in a long time.

It seems that the Florida based band has learnt and grown since their last offering with this new album although it still sounds like the Anberlin we all know, they have brought to the table an exciting freshness that makes this album great, with any band there is always room to grow further but being a sucker for this kind of music I could defiantly see myself singing along to these songs at their next concert.
