The Legacy We Gave It Everything...

1. Sinking Fast 2. Watered Down and Drowning MP3 3. Coming Of Age 4. Running On Empty 5. After Dark 6. Man Overboard
2004 Dead And Gone Records
Our score 4


cru·cial (krshl) adj. Extremely significant or important Vital to the resolution of a crisis. See Synonym: decisive. cr00sh (krush) adj. [Internet nerd-speak] Music or behavior that is good or in some way desirable. See related word: br00tal. Whoa. Genre-based conventions make my job easy, but boy do they make for lousy music. The Legacy have managed to cram every contrivance "fast hardcore" and youth crew have to offer onto this disc with just enough room left to place an extra helping of boring. It puts me in a bad position, this sort of thing, because it's so painfully earnest and childlike that I feel like a monster when I shit on it. But you, the record-buying community, deserve the truth. Sometimes the truth requires excrement. So lets git'r done. There are no bum notes on this and everyone seems to be playing the same song at the same time, so that's good. You could dance to this or sing along or stagedive, so I guess that's good too. Nice to have options. But I don't think you could really be excited for this. That's not an option. This is something you have heard before. Many times. In fact, if you are over the age of 22 you have probably heard this so many times that once more could make no difference at all or crush your faith in music altogether. Six songs of Bridge 9 catalog worship, with a hint of melody. By virtue of the fact that some people can never get enough of the same thing, there will be people into this. For those who need any sort of variety, this is a hellish ride into mediocrity. Bottom Line: Not so bad I can tell people to never give it a chance, but not so good that I would ever recommend it. This may be cr00sh to people who actually use that word seriously. However, it will never, even if all other music on earth is wiped out, be crucial.

Spot on review, if a little overly-wordy. Don't listen to these children, Pat. Can I call you "Pat"? Great.

good review mr disney. oh wait NO!

anonymous 4/17/2005 5:20:59 PM

As with every review by this reviewer, not only do I feel like my time has just been cheated by some c-cky, egomaniacal jerk, but I'm still not sure what this band sounds like, hence defeating the actual purpose of a review. There is variation in old school or youth crew bands, so where does this fit in? What is the music like? Are there dance-type breakdowns, metal breakdowns, any breakdowns at all? Are the vocals screamed or shouted? Are the lyrics about different topics or just stayin

Vari_ 4/17/2005 6:05:12 PM

This is the shittiest review Ive ever read. f*ck that guy. Come spend a couple of weeks in the UK and witness the hardcore bands we have around here and eat your words.

man you fell off_ 4/17/2005 9:43:54 PM

devils advocate here: if you dont understand what "every contrivance 'fast hardcore' and youth crew" and "Bridge 9 catalog worship mean in terms of sound- you should look into it before coming to a hardcore site.

anonymous 4/17/2005 10:28:55 PM

*gasp!* there's even variation in Bridge 9 bands, smartass!

Phil_ 4/17/2005 10:33:17 PM

awesome review. Love this guy. Music wasnt horrible, but nothing fresh. Definately what he stated.

Adam_ 4/17/2005 10:41:04 PM

Everything this dude says is awesome. I'm way into it. Especially that last line.

Thats not remotely funny, i think anyone saying anything is crucial or brutal, is most likely an idiot, but, that attempt at making fun of them is just lazy... and Im not taking issue with the rank or the poor review, infact, i would s

Its Tragic_ 4/18/2005 8:17:40 PM

To the long winded no name above whi said something about not knowing what the band sounded like i would like to quote the review "The Legacy have managed to cram every contrivance "fast hardcore" and youth crew have to offer onto this disc with just enough room left to place an extra helping of boring." and then he says "Six songs of Bridge 9 catalog worship, with a hint of melody." That could not be more accurate. The only reason some one could read that and not know what they would sound li

charles cure_ 4/19/2005 2:50:22 PM

pat kindlon is usually right on about stuff. this isnt an exception. i think its just that when someone finally calls a generic band out onto the carpet for being basically a carbon copy of the 9,000 other generic bands in the genre who all base their sound on a band that wasn't that good or inventive to begin with, kids get pissed. well if youre friends with the band, thats cool, keep liking them. just dont lie to yourself and pretend they're better than a local band 2 towns over that sounds ex

din_ 4/19/2005 11:20:44 PM

what a gay reviewer

Justinxxx_ 4/20/2005 1:25:33 AM

Best reviewer this site has. seriously though, when someone says "six songs of bridge 9 catalog worship, with a hint of melody." that describes exactly what the band sounds like. so gayz trying to act like they have no clue after reading this review need stop posting cause they hate the reviewer. gayzzz

._ 4/20/2005 10:44:59 AM

See this band live and shut your mouth.

anonymous 4/20/2005 1:28:02 PM

I love how "six songs of Bridge 9 catalog worship with a hint of melody" explains all that is needed. In that case, the review should have been only that sentence and not a diatribe of narcissistic nonsense. This will be great! Every review from now on will be condensed to one sentence, because that's all that's needed. Metalcore: "10 songs of Trustkill catalog worship with a hint of singing." Retardcore: "12 songs of Victory catalog worship with a hint of Autism." Metal: "11 songs of Rela

1) It's just sad, that never allows a positive review for (indeed) great European bands (Black Friday '29...). 2) This band sounds A LOT like Modern Life Is War, Another Breath or even Verse, so expect fast hardcore songs with shockingly good melodies and great lyrics. 3) This has nothing to do with B9 releases, Rivalry would be a better comparison and i think, that's NOT a shame, is it?! 4) I like this site, but the pure ignorance of this kid makes me mad! 5) read a muc

anonymous 5/5/2005 3:29:59 AM

worst review i have ever need to go see this band, in every show i have seen them play they have killed it!! Its shit f*cking reviews and reviewers like this who give HXC a bad name. Someone needs to feed you a c-ck you stiff piece of shit.......

david_ 6/21/2005 4:12:08 PM

This band is f*cking amazing and you have no clue what you are talking about. Think Modern Life is War, American Nighmare, Turning Point then you are closer. Lots of melody, so much passion this cd is awesome go buy it!!
