Comeback Kid: Wake The Dead

Sound — 10
It's clear as day this band is post hardcore. However, it deviates from the formula just a bit by incorporating small riffs here and there. And the signature of Comeback Kid's music is its ferocity and energy. There is rarely any parts that are slow or even mid-tempo. They're fast paced and filled with energy.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are all quite comprehensible and quite coherent to 1 subject. They are a bit simple, but good nonetheless. A little more sophisticated and complex that traditional hardcore, but not as emotional or heartfelt as emo. They have songs that are about some personal matters, although, they don't make them so emotional it's emo.

Overall Impression — 10
This CD is a great successor to their debut album "Turn It All Around." With it's fast paced songs and the fact they nail the post hardcore sound, it deserves them a perfect rating. Although, the 1 downside to this CD is that it's quite short. Only 25 minutes, in fact.
