  • Moving away somewhat from the post-hardcore formula that characterized the band's first two albums, Funeral for a Friend's 2007 release, TALES DON'T TELL THEMSELVES, edges closer to traditional rock territory. The emo-tinged themes are still in place, however, as are a bevy of slicing guitar riffs and pummeling thunder from the rhythm section, but the Welsh quintet are clearly re-defining themselves here. Still, even though these young rockers occasionally trade screamo for orchestration (there are string sections on tunes like "Raise the Sail" and "Sweetest Wave"), they play with punk's intent and conviction.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.152) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a dramatic departure from the band's name-making discography; one that suggests they're ready to not only rock the boat, but eardrums and expectations, too."
