It's satisfying to see a band evolve positively from a clashing melting pot of genres into a unit that manages to combine the best elements of their diverse influences, and 'Colors' is undoubtedly the finest album from Between the Buried and Me thus far. The singing is less whiney, and works alongside the heavier riffs whenever it's called for, rather than requiring its own special, remedial section elsewhere, and the greater influence of post-rock and classic prog rock once again helps to meld the other styles all together in a manner that works surprisingly well. No wonder it took the band so long to develop a successful formula. The other aspect of this ... Read the complete review

I was recently introduced to this band and particular album through a friend, and I must say it is a great musical experience on so many levels. The album is comprised of 8 tracks, most of which are lengthy and it plays through as one continuous song, lasting just over an hour. Initially it can be difficult to truly appreciate, especially as the first half of the album in no way lives up to the quality of the second half, as with many progressive albums. After a while however, the album can be an excelent experience. The first song is a great way to start the album, comparable to the likes of muse and Radiohead in terms of musical style. This chilled out ... Read the complete review

'Colors' by Between The Buried and Me was released to critical acclaim. Rave reviews from every magazine under the sun, Mike Portnoy's 'album of the year', they released a live CD to follow it up and it generally cemented the band's place in the progressive death metal elite. It's a sprawling album, running at 8 tracks in just over an hour. 'Colors' has moments of utter brilliance, conversely it has bits where it falls down flat and for an album lauded as much as it is, these moments are far too often. When 'Colors' is brilliant, it's stunning. The amazing, piano driven first track 'Foam Born a - The Backtrack' running into its more 'deathy' second ... Read the complete review

Colors is Between The Buried And Me's 5th album and I've not heard any of their others, so wouldn't like to comment how it compares. What I can say is that Colors is quite an eclectic album and the band are definitely not scared to experiment. There's quite a bit of jazz thrown in alongside hardcore, death metal and various other genres. The downside of it for me is that it seems far too hit and miss and a bit of a mish mash, the styles change so suddenly that it is nearly impossible for them to entwine the styles within each other. Another thing is that the death metal is really rather technical and the screaming vocals of the lead singer just seem way off - ... Read the complete review

Love Metal - Him - great songs, emotive feel none
The Collection - Tears For Fears - New Wave & Post-punk - 2003
Upstairs At Eric's - Yazoo - A moment when punk met new wave and we were introduced to the powerful voice of Moyet One very disturbing track full of introverted sullen themes
Alaska - Between The Buried And Me - More coherent and structured, influences start to merge together rather than oppose. Still threatens to be too heavy for emo fans, and too emo for metalheads.
Between The Buried And Me - Between The Buried And Me - Attempts to be something different. Awkward results.
The Silent Circus - Between The Buried And Me - Moving more towards a sound of their own, before it ultimately collapses. Still too much being squeezed into each song, at significant cost to the enjoyment.
