2012's A War You Cannot Win found the Springfield, Massachusetts-based rockers shifting away from the punishing melodic metalcore sound of prior studio outings and engaging in a hot and heavy affair with radio-ready modern rock. Their seventh long-player, The Order of Things, comes clean about those past transgressions and more or less demands to be served divorce papers, effectively doubling down on the commercial elements of its predecessor. The hook-filled, 12-track set is bookended by a pair of epic heavy hitters ("This Probably Won't End Well" and "Criticism and Self-Realization") that strike a nice balance between the old band and the new, and features the blistering single "No Knock." ~ James Christopher Monger
