Reviews - What do customers think about New Medicines?
"I'm just reading the lines they gave me from the pulpit." Apr 29, 2006
I had some high hopes for this record, I really liked the single and the snippets of other songs I heard, and thought this could be, maybe not genius, but a really well done, fun punk album. What I got was something that's a little less than the sum of its parts. It's not bad, it just doesn't do anything to really make you like it. It's competent musically and decent for the genre, it's just lacking that ingredient of greatness.
"Taste the Red Hands" is a little different style from the rest of the songs and a decent opening. That's a word that comes to mind a lot when listening to New Medicines, "decent". The title track is also the single and it's some enjoyable hardcore, but it's lost some of its luster over time. "Glass In the Trees" is the most affecting song on the album, it's not amazing musically but the lyrics are a little touching.
The rest of the songs are more average rock songs. Pretty much every track has at least one enjoyable part, but sometimes you have to wonder if Dead Poetic is really in it for the music when what they do just isn't that original or fun to listen to. It's serviceable, but it's not very good.
Awesome Jan 16, 2006
The reason I gave this album 5 stars is because it contains the best rock song in my opinion: "The Dreamclub Murders." I can listen to that song for hours and it's just so...perfect. I purchased the album just for that song. The rest of the album is good too, especially lyrical-wise which has already been stated. There is a lot of screaming, but it's not pointless screaming. It adds emotion, which is what screaming is meant for. Anyways, great buy.

Perfect vocals/screams, Perfect sound, and definitely perfect lyrics!! Overall a sophmore album that rocks just as much as their first cd. Check em out and be amazed!
Great Hardcore CD! Nov 3, 2005
This is a great CD for fans of hardcore. The screaming is really incredible and it is definatly worth a listen!
DEAD on Album Aug 1, 2005
I think that Dead Poetics sophmore release is an outstanding album with great lyrics, that if you listen have an positive message. Cannot wait for there 3 rd album to come out in 2006. If you ever get a chance to see them live, GO! Dusty from Beloved and John from Monday in London play in DP now and they are awesome additions to an already strong band of believers in Brandon and Jesse Sprinkle(Poor Old Lu)
