Liferuiner Future Revisionists

"Mature" is such a strange adjective to describe an album, and yet it's constantly tossed around. It almost always implies the band improved and expanded upon their sound. However, this should be the goal of any unit, so why is praise heaped upon them for what should be a standard expectation? With Liferuiner's Future Revisionists, maturity isn't just a noun, but a genuine realization. The band have grown from an almost exclusively breakdown-oriented act to one that justifies their use them via the intersecting melodies. While this change in sound may be a purely aesthetic one, the greater maturation comes with the lyrics, which have turned from juvenile-written messages of hatred (for example, "Fuck you, fuck this, fuck your mother fucking life") in favour of uplifting ones. Unfortunately, the sound of Future Revisionists has been done before, and more energetically, by the Ghost Inside and their ilk, but for Liferuiner, it really could revise their future. At least there's not a song called "Suck My Dick," anyway. (InVogue)
