CROSSFADE Falling Away

To be honest, this was an absolute disappointment in the way of a follow-up release after CROSSFADE's self-titled.

Like what happens to almost every alt. metal band happened to Crossfade for a bit when this album was released. I like to call albums like this weenie-metal, because it's the sound that is cultivated from popular standards and critical reception that becomes a lamer version of the previous sound.

Usually for bands, this drags them into a downward spiral into the abyss to which we do not refer, you know the one (I'm looking at you Them vs. You vs. Me).

Although I cannot say this is a total failure, it is pretty mediocre in the way of CROSSFADE's music. Their self-titled was pretty good, and WE ALL BLEED was exquisitely good in the way of metal.

However, this hard rock album is something that just does not appeal to me, with it's mediocre riffs and composition, and just poor song quality. The only song that I really enjoy from this album is 'Anchor', which gives us a decent shot at their previous material.

If you are looking to collect CROSSFADE's total discography, then I would say skip this and move onto WE ALL BLEED.

I do not recommend this album.

"Crossfade" is the self-titled debut album of the American alternative metal band, Crossfade, released in 2004.

Before Crossfade released their more experimental "We All Bleed" in 2011, they were in their early developments on their self-titled debut. Coming from influences, such as Breaking Benjamin and Theory of A Deadman, they had a hard time finding their personal sound on this album. Being that these bands caused their influences, the album contains tracks that jump from tracks between these to sounds.

Vocal/instrument dominated songs are a rarity on this album, because all of the songs have a decent mix of both. Tracks like this include "So Far Away", "Cold", and "No Giving Up".

All of the songs have a subtle, dark tone to them. However, they are able to maintain lyrical clarity and keep it from going overboard.

Some tracks seem to be more dimmed-down then others, and seem to have a much weaker version of their metal. Songs like "Dead Skin", "Disco", and "The Unknown" would do better to go on their second album rather then this album.

Again unlike 'We All Bleed', this album seems to retain a solid sound unlike the former, which has more differentiating sounds. This album is a definite album to add to any alternative (or any general) metal collection.
