The Bunny The Bear - Stories
Starting the album off with "Eating Disorder" (oh, the name is ironic! I get it!), this track begins with, as my girlfriend put it, "it's like the music that plays when you fucking walk around Runescape." Unfortunately, that's not all that comprises this song. Coming in all too soon, are weak, layered vocals that are as frail as Sonny Moore's, both before and after he became Skrillex--who this band has a striking resemblance to. Also, of course, are deathcore growls, and throaty yells that scream, "I fell asleep on my knees." I think this is a reference to religion (maybe?), but, more than likely, a reference to performing fellatio.
Then, holy shit, there's "In Like Flynn," a catchy-as-fuck, kind-of-sounds-like-Patrick-Stump-but-whinier song that fuses electronic beats and hardcore vocals like plastic and metal. A terrifying look into the mind of a 15-year-old girl, this track shows us all that we need to add another thing to the list of things to teach our children: "Don't get in the car with strangers, don't steal, and don't ever listen to bands that mix Euro-trance/dubstep with metal." Thank you for helping the safety of our offspring, The Bunny The Bear.
"Hey, Allie" has actually a kind of nice-sounding intro, almost oriental-ambient; however, knowing these guys, it doesn't stay long. Throwing in that Sonny Moore singing again, with over-distorted guitar, and wobble-bass like you've never heard. Eye-wideningly stupid lyrics permeate the track, as with most tracks on here, like, "Hey, Allie, you know it's true. I could never find another girl like you." (I think those are the lyrics. I didn't really want to rewind the song and listen again.) A sweet breakdown happens about 2/3 of the way through, with deathcore vocals, keyboard... things..., and that whiny voice coming back. Wow.
"It's Not Always Cold In Buffalo": Ok. Two things. 1. False, it is always cold it Buffalo. 2. This song sounds like Owl City with Daryl Palumbo-meets-Scott Stapp vocals. I swear to God. Everything poppy and "nice" that this song offers is immediately cancelled out by awful, power-ballad distorted guitars, off-key vocals, and the shittiest recordings of drums I've ever heard--oh, right. They're probably not real drums.
"Another Day" is a Skrillex-esque electronic song. Whatever. If that's what you're into, cool. It's boring. Why the hell did Victory sign this band?
I cannot explain in words how awful "The Frog" is. I'll try, anyway. Imagine the creepiest keyboard parts of John Carpenter's Halloween or Children Of The Corn, add in Sonny Moore's vocals off of "Ride The Wings Of Pestilence," Throw in some fake-ass drums that are consistently playing china cymbals, and, finally, put the vocals of Emmure right smack-dab in the middle. Jesus Christ.
"Melody" sounds like The Plain White T's meets Deadmau5 meets Hatebreed. Fuck this.
Right off the bat, I wanted "Imagine" to be a John Lennon cover, because I think the Beatles sucked, and I wanted this band to ruin that song for everyone. Unfortunately, no such luck. It's another, boring, unimaginably shitty song on the album. Let me be clear: I think that the little electronic beats and whatnot are cool. Whatever. I don't like electronic music, but it's not done poorly, objectively speaking, and the weak-ass vocals aren't really all that bad. However, every time they add those bullshit metalcore vocals and deathcore growls, I literally hate my entire life. This album makes me want to cut my throat with the largest slice of glass I can find.
"Your Reasons": another example of a cute-ass, nice-sounding power ballad that adds in screams and is ruined for any person of any demographic, ever. Are you seeing the same trend I am?
"What We're Here For": Daft Punk, plus Emmure, plus Never Shout Never. Do people actually listen to this shit?
"Sadie": YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS SONG IS ACTUALLY REALLY FUCKING COOL. There's NO screaming, no shittily-distorted guitar, and it's a nice, pleasant song. I would play this shit at a party or a nice picnic. (Actually, no I wouldn't, because this band is still awful, and I refuse to support them.) GREAT JOB, THE BUNNY THE BEAR! You got Half a star!
Look, if you like, "Sadie," that's cool. So do I. If you like any of these other songs, you're an idiot. This music is absolute garbage, and belongs in the trash. Holy shit. I can't get over how bad this was. It's over. Halfway through this review, I literally took off my headphones and threw them across the Starbucks I'm in; I bordered on a mental breakdown throughout every second of the almost-43-minutes that this album is. Yes, 43 minutes. Please, don't listen to this album.

This is seriously one of the worst "bands" I've ever heard in my life. The fact that they have a following makes my soul hurt.
