All Music Guide - Corey Apar
On Dying Is Your Latest Fashion, Vegas quintet Escape the Fate are actually quite competent in the emo vein of post-hardcore that they reside in, providing all of the emotional singing versus throaty growling and winding guitar lines versus hardcore breakdowns necessary. The pummeling drumbeats never falter except in the obligatory acoustic closer, the bitter "The Day I Left the Womb", and the band's collective love of metal is always lingering somewhere in the background.

The pummeling drumbeats never falter except in the obligatory acoustic closer, the bitter "The Day I Left the Womb", and the band's collective love of metal is always lingering somewhere in the background. Escape the Fate do it up with enough piss, vinegar, and melodic hooks to spare, the mosh pit sure to swell and explode at the mere opening notes of their sets, although the music sounds like it could be played by From First to Last, the Used, or a more abrasive My Chemical Romance. The band addresses love and loss through standard-issue blood-soaked imagery of guillotines, corpses, red lipstick, and darkness, and vocalist Ronnie Radke sounds like he means each impassioned line. Fans of every eye-linered band Victory Records puts out will care about what he's saying, and for them, Escape the Fate deliver the goods sealed with a tough, fashionable sneer.

    This is My Favorite Album

    i love this album. i listened to it over and over again. all of the songs are AMAZING. Ronnie Radkes voice makes all of the songs even more great. I miss him in Escape the Fate, but i know when he gets out of jail he'll be back on top again with his new band Falling in Reverse.

    In my own and complete opinion, The newer album The War is Ours with the new lead singer, Craig Mabbit, wasn't as amazing as Dying is Your Latest Fashion with Ronnie. I do like a couple of the songs on The war is ours, but i dont love them like i loved the songs on Dying is your latest fasion. Craig is a good singer and has some good songs, but none of them are as great as the ones on Dying is your lastest fashion with Radke.

    GREAT MUSIC!!

    I always wondered what Fall Out Boy would sound like on acid. J/K! But serously Ronnie (lead singer) sounds like Patrick Stump (lead singer of FOB)ONLY when he says "Hallelujah!" (It's interesting to say the least!) But back to the album, AMAZING! One word to describe it all! The lyrics are amazing and the music is amazing! And if you ever get a chance to watch them live! DO IT!! EVEN BETTER!! My favorite songs are "Webs We Weave" and "Day I left the Womb" among others. But this album is Amazing, I can't find anything wrong with this album! the cover art is AWESOME, the lyrics, music EVERYTHING!! So yeah, GET THIS ALBUM!! Don't just download it, (lame)! GET IT!!
