Sound — 10
This whole album reverts back to some of the older sounds of their previous albums. It's much darker like The Fall of Ideals and also light like Overcome. There are some definite similarities in the sounding of some songs, such as Forever In Your Hands and The Last Time. There are a few new sounds from Philip Labonte but that's about all. The solos are very well composed, as well as the one on The Last Time and Won't Go Quietly. They used a crazy effect on a solo that made it sound similar to a Wah pedal, but a little more extreme.
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are very similar to older songs, not much deviation. Philip Labonte has put a couple more tricks in his hat, such as harder death growling, more purging screams, and surprisingly better clean singing. They fit very well with the music and go hand in hand with the tempo they have set for each of the songs. Overall the lyrics were fairly good.
Overall Impression — 9
There are some definite singles on this album: The Last Time, Hold On, and Some of the People, All of the Time. They just have that hit feeling. The album is like a mix of their previous two albums, with accurately executed solos, a nice beat, and decent singing and lyrics.
