We'll Make The Roads By Walking

Alone 46

Released on June 24, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Versatile female fronted vocals that go from screaming to serenading in seconds, compliments by music loaded with time changes and spastic tempos. Reminiscent of bands like Botch, early Converge, and Ethel Meserve all rolled into one. This record is more consistant than their last release and really shows the band's 3 year growth. The Assistant tackle plenty of social, personal, and political commentary while maintaining a positive state of mind. 36 page booklet included with all lyrics, song explanations, and thoughts to let you know where they're coming from.

knowing nothing about the assistant except they were supposed to be really good and trendsetting, i picked up this album. it was kind of a dissapointment. the first three songs are very circle takes the square like but not quite as good and eye opening. other songs are better but very choppy but not in a good way. bottom line the assistant does not have a very unique style and nothing in the album really sticks out as being remarkable. the band does have a very positive message in their music though and its good to hear. also too many movie quotes in the songs

This is a pretty good harcore record, similar to converge and other bands who play that fast, brutal style, except the lead singer is female, but you can't really tell until the last track, a nice acoustic song. The layout is cool as well, with insights from the band members. If you like brutal hardcore with a metallic edge than this disc would be a worthy addition to you collection. Hell, even if you don't like hardcore this would still be good to scare the neighbors.

Possibly the most nesecarry hardcore recording of the decade. The Assistant's songs run the gamut of politcs, personal as well as national, and social commentary that should be pertinent knowledge for every teenager. Beautifully aggressive music that is melodic and precious one moment with absolutely gorgeous female vocals then chaotic and violent in a split second with angry growls and shrieks. This is a great album and should be heard by every kid into hardcore music.

The Assistant: Hear. Listen. Understand. Love

This cd and band is really good.The first song is my favorite but all the songs are good and intresting. The use of keyboards is great considering that it is not common among hardcore bands.I recommend this cd to any hardcore fan who is looking for something a different than just standard hardcore.

OK, assuming this band did break up, i'll say this... thats a damn shame. the assistant is probably one of the most intelligent bands ever. Their music is "crazy" and fast with very emotional lyrics, might not be for all, but the booklet is sheer genius alone. If you like good music and like to think and are open to new ideas check this one out, as well as their other one. you really cant go wrong.
