Sound — 10
Great sound! I listen to all kinds of stuff like this music, bands like: Trivium, As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, Arch Enemy. All That Remains sounds like a mix of those bands, but they still sound original, especially their solo's. If you like good metal, not like Slipknot and if you like great solo's grunting and a little bit of singing, ull love all that remains.

I don't care about lyrics, they are like all other metal bands, death and destruction etc. If you want lyrics listen to hip-hop with your homies, this music is far beyond lyrics.
Overall Impression — 10
As I said they sound like a great mix of all those good bands, but you wont recognise any of their sounds, it's really a good original fresh band, with awesome solos. Some tracks are less techinical then others, I like the technical ones, with breaks, lots of solos and acoustic breaks, and some singing. The others are fine too, though, this album is worth buying. I'm really looking forward to their next album. If it were stolen I wouldn't really care since I've ripped the tracks on my PC and I can make an audio-CD of those anytime.
