"El Mansajero No Le Importante" (Bastardized; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Since The Day's "El Mansajero No Ie Importante" is a quarrel between two different musical factions. On one hand, the music is exceptional - full of life and a good strong form of metal. On the other hand, however, the vocals are more of the screaming that is too often called singing these days. 

There is a time and place for the harsh vocal style, but it isn't all the time and it's not on every song. If I cannot differentiate between songs because the vocals are so one-dimensional, something is wrong. 

Were Since the Day to ease back on the vocal extremes, this CD would be a much better listen.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
