Dead By Sunrise: Out Of Ashes review

01. "Fire" XXXXX [5/5]
A beautiful song that touched me from the first time I heard it. This song has a great melody with a nice verse and chorus. The bridge is very melodic, Chester is singing very softly first then screams the same phrases again, I felt goosebumps on my arms. One of the best songs on the album.

02. "Crawl Back In" XXXX [4/5]
This is the first single from Out Of Ashes and it's a good one. A very good punk and rock song and one of the best heavier songs on the album. Good chorus and verse with great vocals and music.

03. "Too Late" XXXX [4/5]
This song has a great intro, then you hear Chester's soft vocals both in the verse and chorus. Overall a beautiful song with soft vocals, great music and a good intro and outro.

04. "Inside Of Me" XXXX [4/5]
The song starts fast with good scream vocals, then comes the chorus which is great and catchy. The song is pretty short, only 2:18 but it doesn't matter because the song has a great tempo from beginning to end.

05. "Let Down" XXXXX [5/5]
The best song on the album. This song is so beautiful, melodic and this song also touched me from the first time I heard it. This song has a great electronica sound with a synth lead and a more rock and upbeat chorus. A great second single!

06. "Give Me Your Name" XXXX [4/5]
A really great love song which has a 80's style music to it. Chester sings very soft in this song and shows what a great singer he is. He continues to sing like that in the verse and chorus. Later in the bridge he sings the chorus with more power which is great. Their's also a great guitar solo and the song ends with a acoustic guitar with chilling vocals over it, a beautiful outro.

07. "My Suffering" XXX [3/5]
"My Suffering" is a song that has grown on me, I didn't feel it was good at first. But after I listen to it a few times I discovered a really cool song. With good verses with a catchy chorus and powerful screams makes this a cool heavy song.

08. "Condemned" XXXXX [5/5]
This is a really heavy song, real bad ass song! This is a grunge song with powerful screams from Chester, the heaviest song I've heard him sing/scream, more of those please! I think this is the best heavy song on the album.

09. "Into You" XXXXX [5/5]
This is also one of my favorite songs on the album. I like how it starts with soft beautiful vocals and then comes a beautiful chorus. The bridge in this song is what makes this a perfect song, when Chester sings the chorus with his powerful vocals it's just awesome. I got goosebumps on my arms from this song, it really touched me.

10. "End Of The World" XXX [3/5]
Sounds little like Nine Inch Nails in the intro with electronica sound. I think the verse is good but the chorus is much better. I also like the bridge very much and a great guitar solo comes right after, the outro is also good which sounds like a radio tuning.

11. "Walking In Circles" XXXX [4/5]
The song starts with acoustic music during the verses which is cool and a great chorus with good dark music and awesome backing vocals. A very dark song with powerful vibes and great lyrics.

12. "In The Darkness" XXX [3/5]
Starts with a cool humming beat over a acoustic guitar. Chester then starts singing very softly during the verses which has great backing vocals. It has a good chorus but I like the verses better. Later a beautiful synth solo is also played which I like. The song ends with a cool outro, a great ending.

13. "Morning After" XXXX [4/5]
I heard this song live many years ago played with a acoustic guitar and a few years later Julien-K and Chester released a remix of it, I've loved it ever since, both the acoustic and the JK remix version. This version also has electronica influences but has much more rock which gives it a more powerful sound, a great bonus track.

Overall: Chester and Dead By Sunrise have made an awesome and cool album that doesn't sound like Linkin Park, because Out Of Ashes has a unique sound. I'm really impressed by the new sound, it's beautiful, heavy and has great music with electronica, rock, punk and pop influences. This album really shows how talented Chester Bennington is.

Review: Out Of Ashes XXXXX [5/5].
