Miss May I might have played it a little too safe with their recent full-length album, “At Heart”. Metalcore fans have been highly anticipating this album since the band’s release of “Monument” in 2011, and most have mixed opinions. It’s typical metalcore, with mostly screaming and a few lines of clean vocals. Compared to past albums, this one sounds increasingly generic. A band can’t succeed by remaking the same album over and over, but Miss May I could have made just enough changes.
The first single “Hey Mister” grabbed my attention and invited me to listen to more. It began with a new and interesting vibe that was still able to remind me of their past work throughout the rest of the song. Though as I went on, I heard more and more songs such as “Second to No One” and “Sirens Song” that seemed repetitive and boring.
