REVIEW: For The Fallen Dreams – Back Burner

“Let me be honest, I’ve never been a huge For The Fallen Dreams fan, but Back Burner is something else. It may not be the most original record I’ve heard this year, but it is definitely one I couldn’t put down. If you want a record that finds that inexplicably perfect balance of heavy and heart, Back Burner is the album for you. The hooks are huge, the riffs may be even bigger, and the breakdowns will crush you. Don’t expect your life to be changed and you won’t be disappointed. “
