Sound — 8
The sound Alien Ant Farm put out is very diffrent and I like that. They mix great bass lines with rough guitar and soaring vocals that creates a massive sound. There music ranges from VERY hard rock like on tracks Whisper and Wish (if you turn these tracks up loud enough, it will be about 2 seconds before your neighbors call) and softer songs like Summer and Calico (My favorite song on the cd). I would say this musical sound is very Alien Ant Farm and you would be hard pressed to find a sound like this one.

The songwriting is the best I have heard heard of. Dryden mixes easy to understand vocals with a play on words that creates lyrics that the first time you listen you get the picture, but after several listens you start to catch diffrent parts,and it all adds up to a giant picture in the end. Masterful.
Overall Impression — 10
I bought this cd a year ago and I have listened to it everyday since (I am not kidding). This the best cd I have ever purchased, and I would buy it again.
