Senses Fail - If There Is Light, It Will Find You (Pure Noise Records) 2018
Since their formation back in 2002, Senses Fail have a very special and unique place in the hardcore scene. Influenced by pretty much everything – from metalcore and post-hardcore to emo and even pop punk, hardly finding the middle ground between the cult status among the fans, and a significant animosity from some other people. That probably cost them larger popularity, but seems like the frontman, Buddy Nielsen never cared too much about it. From the day one, he stayed true to himself, doing what he wanted. The new record hardly carries any surprises, it brings twelve songs worth of good music, but it’s hardly band’s best work. Experimentation is still here, stylistic chaos is everpresent, and pretty much everything is in its place.
