A second release is a great indicator of a band’s potential for success. Putting out one quality CD is a difficult task in and of itself, but to be able to create two masterpieces is an exponentially more daunting task. With This is the Love You Hate, Fall of Transition has risen to the occasion.
With this sophomore effort, Fall of Transition shows that they are the same incredibly talented band from before, but now with an even more mature and cohesive sound. From start to finish, This is the Love You Hate is full of outstanding writing paired with music evocative of heartache and sadness. The mood is set right away with an instrumental intro, and is gently released at the end of the CD with an instrumental track. In between, there is a lyrical and musical sincerity to each song that hits you right in the heart.
While the lyrics on Fall of Transition’s first self-titled EP were incredible, the lyrics on This is the Love You Hate are even more impressive. The song which stands out the most is Violent, a song which, prior to the release of this CD, was featured in a brilliant acoustic version on the band’s PureVolume page. In a show of talent, the CD version is just as outstanding. The music has a somber tone to match the subject of the song, and the lyrics, full of juxtaposed images, are poetic and beautiful. Listening to “Violent” feels like you are looking at snapshots of the life of the songwriter, feeling his pain.
Fall of Transition’s level of honesty is bold and daring. They put everything on the line emotionally, and they deserve any recognition they receive for their effort.
