Sound — 10
First time I heard this song was when I first joined a church youth group. I was playing pool while the usual playlist of Christian songs was playing through and the song "The Way I Feel" came on. It completely blew my mind. Its amazing how they blend a smokin' guitar, kickin' vocals, deep Christian lyrics and insane solos, to give it a more secular sound. They next day I went out and bought that CD and 2 years later I still listen to it.

The lyrics are excellent, I would really recommend sitting in a dark room listening to this and thinking about it. It's great to have other options instead of having to listen to listen to "I can only imagine" 50 million times. Even through a christian perpective, the lyrics, just like the over all sound of the music, is very unique.

Overall Impression — 10
This album is one of the most cherished CD's that I own. the best songs are "Crash," "In My Head," "Fade Away," "The Way I Feel," "Soulfire" and "Home." If this were lost or stolen I would definitly go out and buy another. They need to start playing this on the radio more!
