In This Moment
A Star-Crossed Wasteland
Company: Century Media
Release: 2010
Genre: Metalcore/Hardcore
Reviewer: Frank Hill
Published: 3/28/2011

COMMENTS:
In This Moment went from being a solid metalcore band on their debut to embracing melodic rock on their second release. Regardless of the talent, I just couldn't handle the execution of either album completely. A Star Crossed Wasteland finds the common ground between their distant poles with 'core screaming (The Gun Show), soothing balms (title track), and combos of both (The Promise). Instead of isolating both groups, their chart success suggests both fanbases are pleased this time around. The music production is thoroughly modern--both abrasive and catchy though somewhat dry. Maria can yell at me anytime.
