pretty decent, could use some originality but your ability to write music is there. Really, all you gotta do is keep writing music, over time you will develop habits in your writing (hopefully not repetitive) that evolve into your style.

well if you wanted to create a Funeral for a Friend clone, then well done, its not half bad. of course if you trying to be an original band then im afraid youve gone wrong somewhere.

in sound and structure its pretty much identical to the first two FFAF albums.
