I Have Dreams - Three Days Til Christmas

I'm super picky when it comes to screamo music. I go through screamo albums like crazy when sampling to find ones that I like, but I have found one of my new favorites. I Have Dreams came when New Ethic's guitarist died in a car crash and in the words of Mike Peters: “It was an attempt to cope with the pain everyone was feeling after Daniel’s death.” The lyrics are powerful and are backed by some great guitar parts. The album's dynamics are peaked at the exact center of the album during "In Good Hands" but there is very little downtime in this album. Roll with me if you like screamo on this one.
