Sound — 8
If you were expecting hardcore music Aaron like he gave us in Underoath, this album is not even close. It definately has a pop/rock feel to it. It's a great CD, that you're going to want to listen to over and over again. It's amazing that he's playing all the instruments in the band. It's very well produced and fun to listen to. The songs also have the perfect blend of slower songs and more upbeat songs. Although if you're expecting Underoath you may be dissapointed. Some songs sound a little the same, but if you keep listening you'll find that you'll like them.
Lyrics — 10
His lyrics are close to those of Underoath's. He doesn't give a lot of reference to God, but mostly leaves his lyrics open ended so that you can fill in the gaps as to what he's referring to even though we all know he's talking about his religion. There's only a few songs where he actually comes out and starts singing about Jesus and God. So if you're religious you'll still get what you're looking for, and if you're not religious don't worry, it'll still be fine.
Overall Impression — 8
I know some people enjoyed listening to Aaron's vocals in Underoath but didn't like the screaming. If you were one of those people this album is definately for you. He is a wonderful vocalist, and you will not be dissapointed. With some slow songs and some upbeat ones this album is good for everyone. It's overall a pretty good CD.
