The screams on Halfway There make me cringe. Reminds me of some screamo bands. Apart from that it's everything you'd expect from a Rise Against album, which for some people is a negative point.

The fact is that Rise Against is and has always been a fantastic band, unfortunately they are not at all respected in this forum. Revolutions per minute is a great album.
Tomorrow never knows what it dosen't know too soon
I sir do not like Rise Againist and as the poster above me do not respect them. Different strokes though.
I love Like the Angel. There are a few other songs by them that I like, but for the most part I'm not too crazy about them.

Still, they seem to be a good band with good heart.
