'How It Feels to Be Lost', completely blew me away!! I know what Sleeping W Sirens are capable of, they took a creative change with Gossip and when I heard they were going back to like before, I didn't know what to expect. Kellin screaming is something I'm always here for. I never expected them to go hard like this, took my breath away. They never fail to write deep meaningful songs and even though the screaming was back, there was a message in the lyrics. And not to be that person but it felt as though I was listening to the old SWS and I missed that. (As I've stated many times, I'm all for bands trying new sounds). On this album they ate everything and the videos are . .
I had a smile on my face the entire time I listened to the album, I was excited. And Kellin has an amazing voice that I love listening to, I'm proud of them. I can't pick a favourite song but if you haven't heard the album, listen to it and the cover is amazing. I don't want to say they took a risk because their older albums were a bit like this, but this was a level up. It made me nostalgic, the emo's are making a comeback. They even switched record labels . .
Before going on, I want to take the time to say how heartbroken I am that Gabe is no longer in the band. As usual he destroyed the drums on each song, but when they announced that he's leaving, I was ready to cry. I was worried about another band breaking up, I NEVER thought about any of the guys leaving, it sucks. Maybe they should've done like TØP and do a hiatus. However, I do wish him the best and I hope they're all still close. .
Kellin has started to believe in himself more and is more confident and he put his all into it. I could feel the emotions, I hope they're all in the right headspace and having fun. Here's to Nick, Justin, Jack, and Kellin not leaving soon. 10/10 #sleepingwithsirens #howitfeelstobelost #kellinquinn #leaveitallbehind #gabebarham #justinhills #nickmartin #jackfowler #rockband #benjimadden #sws #sleepingwsirensalbums #letscheerstothis #withearstoseeandeyestohear #sleepingwithsirensfans #sumerianrecords #howitfeelstobelostsws #sleepingwithsirensnewablum #swsalbums #albumreview
