Sound — 10
Their sound is very much like Linkin Park. They don't have the turn table thing going on but their rock/rap sound is very similar to LP. Overall the sound is very good, however it isn't as hard as LP or Limp Bizkit.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are great. They incourage us in our walk with God and invites non believers to join the party. The singer at one or two points sounds kind of rednecky, but after a few listens he still sounds good. The blend of a punk rock voice with rap is very cool.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall this is a great cd. If you are a fan of linkin park you will like 38th parallel. If you ever have a chance to go to any of their shows, go. They are awesome live.
