This Day Forward

In Response

Equal Vision 82

Released on June 17, 2003


Some bands make music. Other bands shape a whole new sound, bring things to a separate level and strive to forge a new genre by creating living, breathing encounters with the mind, body and soul. Pennsylvania’s THIS DAY FORWARD takes the traditional elements of hardcore, metal, and rock, then wield them together with childlike passion, profound imagery and astute precision. They are forever in search of the perfect equilibrium of darkness and light.

Having not only grown in age and maturity, THIS DAY FORWARD’s song writing has naturally progressed into the eventually unique TDF sound heard on In Response. Conceptual, illustrious dreamscapes of love, hate, regret and fear cocooned in scream soaked deliveries, and racy mood fluctuations. Compared to such bands as Thursday, At the Drive in, Converge and even the Deftones, TDF compose an intriguing concoction of sounds and atmosphere where labels and categories seem to melt away.

This is a quit nice release. But nothing special at all, exept for a couple of songs. But the most of the tracks are just normal emo-core or how ever you want to call it. At some points it sounds very over-produzed, witch makes it sound like new metal, but still a solid release by a good band.

some songs rock, others blow, but most are just flat out ok. sometimes they sound like p.o.d. (who blows) and other times a mix of a hundred bands nothing of there own skip it!

This is extremely generic screamo/emo. All the songs sound the same, which is disappointing. The production kinda gets on my nerves, since I can tell that the guitars are not quite in tune. The instrumental parts are boring and repetitive. The lyrics are extremely repetitive too, and exactly what you would expect from an unoriginal band that just wants some radio play, or maybe to be the background music for a "hip" tv commercial. Maybe they'll play warped tour and get some young groupies. That doesn't mean you should support them. Given the whiney emo-style vocals, with the requisite childish inflection and ridiculous tendency to scream when the music doesn't support that intensity, I don't believe that these guys have any passion invested in this album at all. If I could make any comparisons, they would be unduly generous. If you want original, interesting, emotional music, this isn't the right band for it. Maybe if I were to listen entirely to emo for years, and nothing else, maybe then this would sound kind of new. If that's what you've been doing, then this album is what you deserve. It could be the next big thing that sounds exactly like the last big thing.

This is the logical progression...if I may say so myself. Kairos is in the top 3 eps I own, but this full length doesn't appeal to me as much. It's still really freakin' good, hence the 4. Nouveau is amazing, so is White Picket Defense System...but as an advance warning I must say this is the softest side of TDF. Think TDF Kairos meets Radiohead. Still a wicked ass album though!

WARNING! This cd is NOT like older This Day Forward, with all the breakdowns and nice metal-core guitar parts! No, this is a much towned down very emo/screamo album. Doesn't mean it's bad, quite the contrary, it's actually a very good cd, especially if you're a fan of TDF's earlier relaease, the Kairos ep (the one where Geoff from Thursday sings on the last track). So, if your expecting This Day Forward circa Trabsient Effects of Light on the Water, you're in for surprise, otherwise, enjoy!

what can be said about this day forward except that they need to get a lot more respect. "In Response" is some of their finest work, it's the most catchy and memorable thing they've done. there's virtually no metal left in their sound and there is much less screaming. it's a small evolution from the "kairos" ep but if you liked that you will like this, though it may take some time to get used to the changes. every track seems to do something special, and mike shaw is one great vocalist. one of the best cds of 2003, get it if you like hardcore/post hardcore.

This Day Forward never cease to amaze me. This record is similar to kairos in ways but it is also a lot different. TDF have created a whole new sound, ranging from heavy breakdowns similar to those in kairos and TEOLOW, to beautiful melodic soundscapes which is a relatively new addition to their sound. i would recomend this to anyone who enjoyed their transition from TEOLOW to kairos. The vocals are amazing in this cd. They go from Vadim's soft melodic harmonizing to Mike Shaw's chaotic screams. The bottom line is, if you were into kairos then you'll probably like in response. If you like what Equal Vision puts out then you'll also probably like this. this album rocks.
