If you were a fan of the more chaotic and off the wall sounds of their past there isn't much here to keep you. From their previous album songs like Move, Shake, Hide and Vibetech still had a foot in the door of mathcore while blending the sound with smooth poppy moments delivering a nice blend. There's moments on this album but nothing that lasts merely glimpses. However that said they are a young band, bands grow up and mature to hold them to one style would be criminal. To not recognize that despite not fitting a style I may like these are well crafted songs would be just wrong.
Rebecca MacIntyre’s growth as a vocalist has been tremendous to watch and she really pushes herself here. Softer songs like Me & You and Run With The Rhythm really show off her range as a vocalist. It feels like she really stretched things out and explored herself on the slower songs. The harmonies and melodies that are created using her voice and the rest of the band are something other rock bands should strive for.
Knowing What You Know Now is probably going to be a hard album for older fans to accept having fallen in love with the reckless, brash, and loud sound of their previous work. However the attitude is still there it’s just been adapted to a smoother and more mainstream sound and that’s not a bad thing. Bands grow up and change. There's no lack of passion on this album and no signs that the band is trying to be anything they're not. It may take some getting used to but once you get past the initial instinct to give up because it's not what you're used to you will certainly find a weird and wonderful bunch of songs.
