For the sound that they are striving for, are they acing it? Absolutely.

Amo stands as the work of a band unafraid to go beyond their boundaries. In the process, they have also revealed their knack for catchy songwriting.

The Straits Times The Straits Times (TOP)

Where TTS swapped invigorated metalcore for arena-worthy anthemic rock, Amo sees that pushed further – transcending into EDM, pop and even grime.

Overall, amo crosses boundaries and blends genres generally with success.

Silver Tiger Media Silver Tiger Media

It is where the band does deviate from the norm that they are most impressive, with the album feeling like a sonic evolution from their previous works, with deep and poignant lyrical content from Sykes.

The Edge The Edge

Amo is a strident record, difficult to categorize and, in a good way, uniquely spliced and sequenced with little fear of crossing boundaries - but part of mastering this dark art is knowing when to put the paintbrush down.

The music is electronically cool, and the strong beats include a guest performance by the Canadian art-pop musician Grimes.

“Amo” might transform his band from cultishly beloved mid-level rock stars to arena-filling superstars, but it’s still too soon to tell.

Bring Me the Horizon's blend of pop, electronics, and what remains of their metalcore edge is surprisingly admirable on amo.

They’ve tried so hard to rebel against what they were, they seem to have forgotten to find out what they want to be.

The dramatic sound world with its dense band ensemble that manipulates grooves, live noises and drift freely and shows particular attention to detail is still shocking.

Evolution is key for any band’s longevity, and Bring Me The Horizon have firmly confirmed that the only way they’re going is up.

Immortal Reviews Immortal Reviews

While there are moments of great potential throughout the album, a lot of it feels squandered on a sound that's not sure if it wants to keep a tenuous link to the band's deathcore past or abandon it for an EDM future.

Bring Me The Horizon are definitely not the band from a few years ago.

BMTH grew up with us, and I personally can’t thank ’em enough for sticking around and discovering new avenues to give us what we want: totally shameless listening.

BMTH are able to explore a challenging and exciting direction in a way that's vulnerable, offering a new perspective on synth music from a band rooted in metalcore.

VULTUREHOUND MAG VULTUREHOUND MAG

Slightly mirroring Linkin Park’s electronic remap with A Thousand Suns, there are quiet piano parts, bleeping synthesisers, electro raps and even what sounds like a children’s choir.

BMTH have made a full transition into a genre-defying sound that embraces elements of pop, rock, dance, and electronic music.

Consequence of Sound Consequence of Sound

Toying with all genres to weave a sound that is nowhere near their Deathcore beginnings and yet still fully under the Bring Me the Horizon trademark, Amo is intelligently ironic, emotionally raw, biting and beautiful.

This is a super-modern, rock-tinged record and needs to be considered on those terms, but it's undoubtedly BMTH's bravest move yet. [Feb 2019, p.89]

They haven't completely severed links with the past--the bruising Wonderful Life comes with a cameo from Cradle Of Filth squawker Dani Filth-- but mostly it's a bold leap into the future. [Feb 2019, p.108]

‘Amo’ might not be as complex or as vulnerable as ‘Sempiternal’ and other works of BMTH’s were (and still are), but it’s a solid step forward for a band that deserves to express themselves in the way that they personally wish to.

SoundOfBrit (FR) SoundOfBrit (FR)

This new offering takes everything you think you know about the band, turns it on its head and dropkicks it out of the heavy music genre and into a diverse blend of EDM, synth and pop rock that is so far removed from the band’s past, but somehow, in a strange way, works.

Wall of Sound Wall of Sound

The true tragedy of ‘amo’ is how often it fails on its own terms, how often the group attempt to faithfully recreate the kind of music they enjoy rather than identifying elements to pinch and combine with their own strengths.

BMTH Actual evolution from a cookie cutter obnoxious death/metalcore band, in my iPhone? More likely than you think. People who act like they are worse now know nothing about music and simply want effortless bland garbage and refuse anything with a hint of inventiveness or creativity all due to their obsession with edgy growls and screams so over the top that any sane person would be physically incapable of laughing. This is good music. Wonderful life is actually inventive and creative.

Shut up fatties The album isn’t even out and yall are already giving it 1 star. It’s still November but this album cured my iron deficiency, brought my old cat back to life, ended global warming, ended war, extended my life span, ended wildfires in California, gave the billions of people on this planet the chance to have an outer body experience just by knowing this album exists.
