Although he is certainly a skilled singer for what he does, there are time when it feels he strains his voice too much, which ends up equating to sounding like something more akin to an adolescent wail than the frontman of a band who has been around for the better part of a decade. The screams here are fairly intermittent and sparse, but they are much less successful; always sounding fairly screechy and tending to ruin most of the parts they lead.
The songwriting here is inconsistent at best, ranging from rather noisy and aimless messes like 'Straight-Jacket Keelhauled' to more melodic success in the aptly-titled 'Single' and the surprisingly effective ballad track 'Webs'.
It often feels though that in their attempt to make things sound dissonant and technical, they do lose some of the magic, and what melodic aspects they do try to incorporate often feel a bit weak. One of my favourite aspects of The Fall Of Troy's music is their highly technical approach to crafting riffs, but it does feel as if they needed to work the complexity in a little better to work with the melodies.
The end result is something that lacks a memorable impact, leaving only a couple of tracks active in the listener's imagination after the album stops rolling. I find myself impressed by some of the stuff heard on 'In The Unlikely Event', but it still feels as if The Fall Of Troy lacked some tightness on their swansong record.
In any case, the band was one of the better post-hardcore acts of the '00s decade, and their fourth album does nothing to tarnish their reputation. I can only imagine that those who find that the band suits their personal tastes more will find much more to appreciate here than I did. In the Unlikely Event is disgusting at times, pretty at others; it's prog, post-hardcore, and virtuoso material all at once. There are keyboard breakdowns, southern riffs and impossible air-guitar-friendly bits aplenty.
It's a little bit bluesier and crazier than anything they've done, and mos You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not.
