    Hell, I wouldn't have thought there would be another album by them I could actually listen to when I stumbled across the Changes album now and then and checked for the band's current work. Heavy Hearts is awesome and the few clean parts are nowhere near being as awful as they were on the albums between Changes and Heavy Hearts( _my_ opinion, I simply don't like that kind of vocals, so don't feel offended) . Welcome back Chad and thanks for leaving Dylan. The returned straight in your face vocals are very much appreciated.

    @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.....
