Sound: The Composure combine Beatles-sounding old school pop with modern rock in an inventive and challenging manner. With breezy, well composed guitar playing and precision drumming, the songs presented here really strike a chord with their honesty and "coolness". // 8

Lyrics: Paul Menotiades, also a member of PA-based Punchline; has a natural and very honest vocal which tugs at the heart strings. His voice is suitably 'emo' to appeal to the masses of new generation kids on the block, whilst also conveying geninue talent to help him through. Both impressive vocal range and excellent technique are on display in this offering. "Stay Away From Me" is impressive in its rhyming and cutting remarks in particular on the lyrics-front. // 9

Overall Impression: A good continuation of their 2010 debut full length "Strings Attached", this release showcases the bands growth as songwriters and musicians. A wealth of high-quality, hard hitting material is laid bare for the world to see and I seriously predict big things for this young group of individuals. A fantastic effort from a fantastic band, very impressive! // 8
