With its surging rhythms, angst-ridden vocals, and showers of distorted guitars, And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead combine the muscle of heavy rock, the sonic swirl of shoegazer bands, and a touch of emo sensibility into a powerful package. But while the noise-rock cultivated on earlier albums (MADONNA and SOURCE CODES & TAGS) is here, WORLDS APART shows Trail of Dead taking a step forward in terms of songcraft, with a surprising emphasis on melody and accessibility.
"The Lost City of Refuge," for example, moves along at a dreamy shuffle, and "The Summer of '91" begins as an introspective piano-driven ballad before the dynamics fluctuate into crashing chords and rolling tympani. The expansive "The Rest Will Follow" merges chiming Britpop with a martial interlude, while the violin-fueled waltz of "To Russia My Homeland" shows the group more than willing to mix it up stylistically. The ominous "Will You Smile Again?" has the familiar Trail of Dead edge, but for the most part, WORLDS APART foregrounds songs over squall, lending a maturity and focus to the anthemic properties that earned the band a devoted following among critics and fans.

Entertainment Weekly (p.143) - Ranked #9 in Entertainment Weekly's 'Top Ten Records of the Year' -- "[T]hey channel their rage, disgust and caustic humor into brawny, exhilarating anthems..."

Magnet (p.52) - Ranked #3 in Magnet's "The 20 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[T]hey came armed with an orchestra, a vocal choir, prog-rock album artwork and an extra drummer."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]his is an unmistakably 'rock album, but this time they throw more into the mix; there are waltz timings, Primal Scream-style doubled vocals, swooping strings, and more."
