Miss May I - Monument: Deluxe Edition (Review)
So obviously the album sound exactly the same as their previous edition of Monument. But I can comment on the 4 new songs.
Song wise the songs sound like Miss May I, but are quite a bit different than their previous work, and how the songs are was kind of surprising to me. But it was nice to know that the band has seemed to change while keeping the "Miss May I" feel to it. Sure teases me for their next album.
Vocals I think have become more mature in a sense as the band has grown up, clean vocals seem better now, but not sure if that is just due to better mixing. The guitarists seem to keep the songs some what technical which I like. But the mixing done on the new songs is quite different, and I can't make a sure opinion on it till a full album, but the mixing does sound good. The guitar tone has changed a bit, the songs are less bass like, the drums seem softer. Though these are additional song to this album, so this is probably not what the new album will sound like.
Though I will have to judge it like the normal Monument album, the new songs are great and the older songs are still great and I am glad to own this edition. The music videos in high resolution are just great, it just would of been nice to put the new music video Masses Of A Dieing Breed on it as well. The interviews are interesting and I have never seen a parents perspective on it, and it is just general interesting information. The live videos I actually have never seen, and they to are great and shows just the in-saneness of their shows.
Miss May I - Monument: Deluxe Edition 8.7/10
