Resting on their laurels? See what we thought of the new album from ETF...

Always a band likely to garner instant love or hate, Escape The Fate’s third album of the post-Ronnie Radke era will inevitably divide opinion. At times, the quintet deliver the solid grooves and renowned, catchy singalong choruses that have engaged their adoring fan base, but for too much of the time ‘Ungrateful’ sounds a bit flat and tired, almost as if Escape The Fate are resting on their laurels (‘Chemical Love’ and ‘Live Fast, Die Beautiful’). If you liked ’10’s self-titled album, you’ll love ‘Ungrateful’, but if you hated the former, your feelings probably won’t differ too much here.
