Anti-Flag: For Blood and Empire

Sound — 10
Man, this CD is totally rockin'! You know when a CD is great when every track is awesome, and in this album every track is awesome. Every song has a political meaning and even if your not one to be into music that has a political theme you still gotta check these guys out. They're so good. The riffs and sound they throw out your speakers are wickid! Some are high-speed and above the 12th fret, some have a great rythem and others combine both but matter what it is, it all rocks. The tone of their voices goes with the music so well, it's truely a music experience. If you like rock or punk you gotta get in on this.

Firstly Justins vocal skills, they're wickid!! His voice is so good and fits the music really well. The timing, tone and everything is amazing. The backup vocals are also really good aswell which also have great tone and timing. The lyrics are all political, the the booklet you recieve with the CD you get like a essay which helps back up the song. All the songs are about the goverment and some lines can really get you thinking like "be the voice of a generation." Every line is thought-out but sometimes they just end up repeating themselves from other songs.

Overall Impression — 9
Overall this album is so out there and beats so many other artists out there today. All the songs are real catchy, 'rock-able' and awesome to rock with your guitar too. it's really an awesome CD and you'll probably like it. There are some real quick songs and then songs like 'One Trillion Dollars' which are slower but still such an awesome track. Honestly, I like every track. It's an awesome CD. If it got lost/stolen I wouldn't just be pissed but I'd buy it again!
