Dead Poetic


Solid State 46619

Released on October 31, 2006


When you think about Dead Poetic's new album, Vices, think classic rock n' roll or the '90s alt-rock nation. Think about saints and sinners, or about the involvement of producer Aaron Sprinkle (Pedro The Lion, Anberlin) or the Deftones' Chino Moreno. Above all think about honesty. Just be sure of one thing: never, ever, think about Dead Poestic and the "S" word again. Vices is anything but screamo. "When we're talking abou the best records of all time, I'm definitely a dude that's going to talk about Led Zeppelin before I'm talking about Refused," proclaims Dead Poetic singer Brandon Rike.

Vices owes more to Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam than whichever "scene" bands have skipped the VFW Halls and gone straight to the mainstream this week. Sure, Dead Poetic's breakout album New Medicines evidenced touches of the now over-played sound. But Dead Poetic has always evolved. Vices reflects their strongest evolution yet. "If I could change anything about New Medicines I would take out some of the elements that pigeonholed it to the 'screamo' genre because that was never our intention," Rike clarifies. "On the other hand, those sensibilites added to the record's success. I'll always be able to listen to it and be excited about it. But we're not hardcore kids. We had our choice bands that we dug but hardcore was never our cup of tea. We were always more into grunge. We never set out to be a 'cool' band -- just a good band."

I say 4.

They obviously left their screamo roots, which i don't object to. Too many screamo bands around and they all sound similar.

A lot of people seem to be really dissappointed in this album, but you know why most are? They are against change and if something comes out that they don't normally listen to, its no good. Music is all about PROGRESSING people. They're more of a rock/alt band now, and i think it is an awesome album.

A lot of people also seem to be saying that its "not original" BS! Its more original than their older stuff. I mean, i'm not saying this album is something that has never happened before, but there is definetly originality in it. Great songs, nice change.

I still listen to and love their older stuff, and i love and listen to this as well.

good album, check it out.

First, I respect that they want to take their sound in a different direction from their previous albums, but I was dissapointed with the result. The "screamo" style that they distance themselves from was really their strength, I think. Their last two albums had many songs that I still listen to today, but none of the songs in this album that I can think of are on the same level. Although it's still worth giving a listen to for old DP fans, this new album just doesn't have the edge that previous albums have had.
