As I Lay Dying: Shadows Are Security

Sound — 4
Okay, so this album I bought because I wanted something a little different to listen to, and I'd heard 'Meaning In Tradgedy' and thought it was a great song. I put in the CD, and as I went through the songs I realised they all sound the same! Yes, ladies and gents, every song sounds just like the one before. You just kind of get tired of hearing them over and over.

Lyrics — 8
I do like the lyrics in this CD. They are quite insightful, and touch on relatable topics. The singer has a pretty good scream voice, but a little singing would help break the songs up. That may not be their style, but I would personally prefer to hear something a little different.

Overall Impression — 5
I've just heard so many better metal CDs. I really wouldn't suggest you buy it. Maybe download a couple songs, but don't buy the CD. If it were stolen or lost, I would probably go out and buy a different CD. Yes, I would not pay for this again.
