BRING ME THE HORIZON REVIEW

I've listened to about 85% of BMTH's discography. So far, I haven't listened to "This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For", "Count Your Blessings", a few tracks from "Suicide Season" and "There is a Hell...", and "Music to Listen To...". I don't really have any intention of listening to the last. I will still be reviewing "SS" and "There is a Hell..." here though. So let's get into it.

SUICIDE SEASON (2008)

I did not like this at first. I thought it was too heavy for my tastes. But I recently listened to a few tracks from it, and boy was it therapeutic. This album would only be something I listen to if I'm going through some serious emotional shit. The kind of emotions that makes your stomach turn and blood rush. I'm especially partial to "Diamonds Aren't Forever", which is probably the only track from this album that I've liked since the very beginning. So yeah, while I haven't listened to the entire album, I still think it's pretty fucking good.

THERE IS A HELL, BELIEVE ME I'VE SEEN IT. THERE IS A HEAVEN, LET'S KEEP IT A SECRET. (2010)

Another album that I was kinda iffy on at first, and to be honest I'm still not sure about my thoughts on the album. The only track from here that I listen to on a semi-regular basis is "Fuck". So I'll have to get back to you on this one. I do think that it is still quite heavy a la "Suicide Season", but is an obvious precursor to the styles that will show up in the next album.

SEMPITERNAL (2013)

Honestly not bad. The first half of the album is filled with absolute bangers, with "Can You Feel My Heart" being an amazing opener. The second half, though, falls flat for me. Most of the tracks here are forgettable, aside from "Shadow Moses" and "Antivist". I have the Deluxe edition downloaded, and the bonus tracks here aren't really memorable either. But still fucking amazing. That cover art? Ugh. Heaven.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT (2015)

My favourite BMTH album. Pure bangers almost all the way through, with the exception of "Oh No", which I find to be boring. "Doomed" could not have been a better opener for the album, and to this day is my favourite BMTH track of all time. "Drown" and "Avalanche" are also personal favourites. Oli is truly emotionally raw in these tracks and on this album. The lyrics really tug at you, and are easy to relate to.

AMO (2019)

Probably their worst album. There are some good tracks here and there like "Mantra", and one of their best tracks "i don't know what to say", but everything else sucks. It's too pop for my tastes. I understand that BMTH are making the music that they want to create and don't want to be defined by a bubble, but come on, at least make your songs good.

POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR (2020)

Wow. Wow. Wow. My second favourite BMTH album. So fucking hard to believe that after the shitfest that was "Amo", they came out with this masterpiece. It's not perfect - there are weak points such as "1x1" and "One Day the Only Butterflies Left..." but otherwise, almost every track does not fucking miss. "Dear Diary" is an amazing opener, and "Parasite Eve" is the anthem of the decade. I'm truly excited for the next album in this four-album/EP/record/whatever series. It's going to be amazing, I know it.
