Good band. I really enjoy the two previous full-lengths. Anxious to pick up a copy of my own and be able to absorb the album.
Uh... 9? Were we listening to the same album here or?
lol at your worldview. the economy is fine
hardcore, a reactionary offshoot of punk hardcore, a reactionary offshoot of punk hardcore, a reactionary offshoot of punk hardcore, a reactionary offshoot of punk
Using loose references to Bukowski and Ginsberg doesn't give your shitty reviews and insight any depth you f*ck.
no way this should have gotten a 9 when witness got an 8. its a 7 at best. a lot of filler tracks in between some great tracks.
A Ronald Reagan reference? Cory, you are officially dogshit
havent heard yet, but Im excited to. f*ck the naysayers this is pretty much the only "hardcore" band that I can tolerate
yeah, 9. i'm pretty sure you give these things unbelievable scores so you can get album of the week. this is wretched.
Definitely not as good as Witness. A good hardcore album, but a huge step backwards for this band.
Cory, you are such a gay, and this band is god awful.
Why do you trekkie gays make fun of corey all the time, he probably does more with his life in five minutes then you could do with yours if you lived forever. Go to hell f*cking internet queers.
And this is why theres not another revolution, because we have idiots liking...I dont know...whatever
how could he not use a Reagan reference? that's what the album title is referring to. your one-liner critiques are f*cking ill-informed and weak, lambgoat.
It's not their fault that the most of the rest of the hardcore community... nice grammar lol, I spent some of my life debunking a critique. I feel like a waste.

wtf cory, you basically wrote a social commentary on hardcore, and united states politics. i dont think you even mentioned once what the f*cking album sounds like, except for saying in the wrap-up that it has a lack of speed. 1/10 review. go chug some boners.
awesome album, one of my favorites this year, but HORRIBLE review. god damn cory
this band is an unfunny joke. i like cory, but f*ck this thin sounding album and his blatant fanboy review.
Yeah, I don't get the "post-hardcore influenced hardcore" thing either. An oxymoron from a moron. Anyway, this is definitely the best thing this band has done. f*cks all over Witness and My Love...Easily a 9.
half the record is good, half is decent at best, definitely a step backwards in my opinion, and i love modern life is war, the songs just lack the intensity, energy and passion of the past, that's my gripe with it. plus the way he did his vocals on it, even though it was a conscious decision, are not to my liking, i prefer the previous efforts style. that is all.
f*cking lifeline records hasnt sent my god damn mother f*cking son of a bitch mother f*cking sucking ass hole LP yet. f*ckers
Attention: Cory. The economy is in a decline? No it's not. Ever hear of supply-side? Read some Von Mises, you bastard
Great band! Iowa representing...Lifeline records posted an update about the record on their website. go read it dumbf*cker above.
i like this album and all, but this review says absolutely nothing about how the album sounds.......typical cory review.....lots of verbal masterbation and very little substance......."post hardcore influenced hardcore"???? sounds like something gluck would write
I really like this kid's reviews, but this one was just retarded.
Cory you pretentious f*ck, just review the album next time
"fanboy" i thought that word only existed amongst the video game world. haha.
cory your a gay and i hope you and this band die on the way to their next show while your sucking all their dcks in their van.
this was a damn good review....minus the fact that it doesn't talk much about how the album sounds. but if you haven't heard modern life is war, you should probably headbutt a wall p.s. - whoever says that the economy is fine.......uh, you're wrong.
i guess 6 straight quarters of economic growth = steady decline to this guy...
Holy shit. Is this a political blog or a f*cking CD review. Also, "post-hardcore inspired hardcore"??? Shut the f*ck up...you shouldn't review CDs. But you're right about how good the record is...all that other bullshit should be kicked to the curb though.
This might be the most pretentious review I have ever read.
I would suck MLIW dck if i had the opportunity
Hey, no one gives a shit what any of you think. So what if you don't like the record or the review. NO ONE f*ckING CARES BUT YOU. Crying about a f*cking review, crying about an album and a band. f*ck, does baby want his bottle also? Either buy it or don't, like it or don't, but keep all your petty bullshit to yourself because no one cares.
are you sure you were even listening to this album? it's almost garbage.
why does Jeff Eaton have to rip me off?
