Sound: A great Album from a really Great Band. This description might sound too simple to describe what one could get from hearing this album. The album shows the bands' simplicity and at the same time, showcases the amazing talent that these quartet of great musicians in each and every song. A 12 track album opened up with a a song entitled "Take No" will really call your attention right there from the start. The rest of the songs in the album really is worth hearing, such as "Blue Sky", their debut track "Broken Sonnet", "The Day You Said Goodnight", "Kung Wala Ka" and many more enjoyable tracks can be found in the album. The soft and cool voice of Champ (the band's vocals) would really take you into another dimension as you listen to his singing prowess. // 10

Lyrics: One thing that might have pulled down this whole record would be it's lyrics. It is noticeable that most of the words put into the tracks in the album really don't mean anything that would put emotion into its listeners. Good thing that they've got the music and the great vocals to back up for this so-so side of their album. But it's just quite a shame considering that their album made a Platinum Record in the Philippines with poor lyrics (poor grammar actually). But still most of the tracks are worth listening! // 6

Overall Impression: All in all, this album still kicks butt. A really nice debut for a really amazing band! Would they have gotten more into the writing part for their songs, they could have gotten away from most critics (like me) and earned more and more album sales! But still, way to go Hale! // 9
