    @Truth2811 Still Dylan Cleans were mind blowing. I always adored this band with Dylan. Chad is overrated!

    Heavy Hearts is a really great album, it exceeded my expectations. Favorite track: Bombay. The melodies and riffs are riveting.

    XDMANISH, what are you talking about? Do you know history about FTFD? Do you know Chad and Dylan? You must be kidding! At first: I have to agree with you that Relentless was awesome album with Dylan, but Changes is everlasting album, Back Burner was a little bit difference with more clean vocals and Wasted Youth was not bad too, but it had a lot of clean choruses and it was not what FTFD truly are. Do you know HUNDREDTH? :D Chad was never in this band :D I must say LOL on this sentence :D Their only singer since they started is Chadwick Johnson, Chad Ruhlig has a band called LEGEND.And about your opinion that Chad kicks out Dylan and comeback to FTFD is absolutely wrong. Dylan decided to leave because he wants to start be a tattoo artist.....HEAVY HEARTS is absolutely amazing album with Chad, it has a lot of mosh moments, tough parts and of course what is best about this band melodic parts and so much emotions in lyrics.....

    This guy (chad) never deserve to get back with FTFD. I mean come on guys, he was good in Hundredth and Dylan was also promising with this band (though Wasted Youth wasn't that fab album) but his last two album contribution was awesome. Relentless was really an Relentless album, maybe the best of that year by any band, this guy called Chad destroyed the Career of a great musician, :-( lame, i mean to say that when Chad lefted, there was Dylan who lifted the band up by making and contributing great music and after years, chad came and kicks out Dylan, doesn't sound kind. I hate Chad for that. And just wanted to say that Relentless>Changes.

    I am sincerely confused when I see the posts about the similarity between Changes and Heavy Hearts. To my mind, they don't have anything in common. Changes is supposed to be an excellent mix of speed, heaviness and melody, where practically each song is fulled with plenty of great, catchy and peculiar moments. Heavy hearts is, conversely, simply solid but with the lack of diversity. I've got a feeling, that the guys lost their skill to insert melodies after crushing breakdowns. Now it's seems that the lion's share of attention was spent on breakdowns instead of melodies, which are currently not catchy and placed like a background during choruses. Yeah, it's clear that new album is much better than the past several works, but it's still not For the fallen dreams whom I expected to hear after Chad's comeback.

    "Amnesia", instrumental foda, a melhor do álbum, o resto é tudo mais do mesmo.

    Oh nice, Heavy Hearts almost good as Changes, though I was hoping there wouldnt be any clean vocals, it kind of ruins the whole atmosphere on those few songs.
