Ever changing, The Blamed have come up with something best described as progressive. Weighing in at just over 30 minutes, this is eclectic and experimental modern rock with their familiar elements of punk and hardcore. It has a melodic edge and yet the songs don't flow easily - therein lies the experimentation. The lyrics show a poetic, slightly cryptic bent, but some are quite clear, like "Our Bazaar World," examining our obsession with outward appearance and peer mentality. The Blamed are being artists experimenting with art, but whether this will be appreciated by many is questionable.
