Flawed Design Tracklist:
Great album, but listening to “Justify”... is this song a shot at 3DG?! “I knew all along from the day I left, you’d fall apart”... “tears are falling down your face, realizing that I’ve been replaced”? Sounds like a shout-out to 3DG to me
Their first album was raw and hard hitting, which isn’t bad at all. But this album definitely has a lot more refinement to the sound while still retaining that heaviness. Great effort from these guys, not a bad song on here.
I've listened to this entire album at least 6 times now since it's release Friday and I love every single song on it! It's not as gritty as the last Saint Asonia album but it's still gritty and so nice to hear sonically. This has to be one of the best albums I have EVER listened to..no joke, It's really THAT GOOD! Thank you Saint Asonia and Adam Gontier for pouring your hearts onto another perfect album🤘🏼
After an awesome debut album and 3 great pre-released songs (The Hunted, Beast, and This August Day) I couldn’t wait for this album. Too bad the debut blows this album away. Aside from the 3 pre-released songs nothing is up to par. They weren’t a good indicator of what was to come. This album is muddled by poor production, grating static electronic sound effects, lack of energy, and unmemorable hooks. The only song that comes close to the 3 pre-releases is Blinded. Other than that I’d rather stick to their debut which feature all good songs. I guess I’ll preview their next release before I purchase.
The album is good and that’s about it. To me there’s no single song that stands out like the previous album. I’m not sure if it’s because I listened to the album at 5:30 in the morning, but the sound just sounded repetitive like I was listening to the same song over and over. The Hunted and Beast are definitely the top two songs on the album. Definitely a good album, but not great. Still love Adam’s voice and lyrics though.
After listening to all songs! I gotta tell ya, they all had descent meaning and a beat that gave me a feeling like some of the old songs Adam used to write in 3dg. I’ve been waiting sssooo very long for their 2nd album (flawed design) and its even better than self-titled & it’ll give me company while I wait another four years for round 3! 💜 ya Addy!!! 💞💗💖💘
always been a fan of the old three days grace, since adam departed to start Saint Asonia it was natural to give it a try. wasn’t disappointed in 2015 and i’ve been looking forward to the 2nd album ever since. i’ll admit i’m not the most patient person so the 4-year wait was a hard one, but every single release so far has been on repeat.🤘🏻 definitely looking forward to friday to hear the whole album.
Love Adam’s voice. Three Days Grace isn’t the same. Srry but the guy trying to sound like Adam isn’t working 😒. So far I really love the music. Only heard 3 songs so far. Thanks for your music and can’t wait till the rest of the album comes out.
Even though it’s not out yet, 5 stars. Other “rock” bands have been putting out music that ain’t the same anymore *cough* Theory of a Deadman *cough* so thank God for Saint Asonia keeping actual rock music alive!
The sound recording is really odd and quiet, and you can't really hear what they're saying. The hunted is just awful, and Beast is Okay. I'm not a hater but I just think they could of done better.
I’m super excited for Sirens in particular since I’m a huge Within Temptation fan. I grew up on Three Days Grace and I still listen to their first four albums often. It’s good to know that Adam Gontier is still making music. Also props to Mike Mushok and the rest of the musicians as well. Thanks for providing The Hunted since that’s a great song with a cool main riff.
the mix is way better than the last record and adams vocals mix with the instruments much more clearly than before. this is the best sont ive heard adam on in years and makes me super excited for the record.
This album meaning and every song is so deep! Agh everyone has a flaw in life and this album tells us to embrace it! The Hunted and Beast are the first two singles of the album, and i’ll just say that this is amazing! Adam sounds like his young self, and Beast could have very well been from One X. I think all of SA fans can agree that this is going to compete with some old three days grace albums 🔥👹🤘🏼
