We gave it an A-

The awesome irony of A City by the Light Divided is that, under producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips), this is the Jersey quintet’s most riff-heavy, unified work yet. Combining the youthful aggression of 2001’s Full Collapse (led by stellar anthem ”Autobiography of a Nation”) and the solid, if stilted, professionalism of their major-label debut, 2003’s War All the Time, Fridmann guides screamo’s best band into stronger (the hooky single ”Counting 5-4-3-2-1”) and more eclectic (the crashing organ instumental ”The Light”) territory?and to their crowning achievement.
