Sound — 10
The album starts with a full band version of hands down with in my opinion is not as good as the original acoustic version (track 4 of another year on the streets 1 by vagrant records) but from there on the cd got better and better. There's not 1 song which I dislike. This cd give you a break from all the distortion, solos, etc of alternative music today.
Lyrics — 8
Dashboard Confessional write the best lyrics ever but Chris's high pitched voice gets on your nerves after a while (recomendation do not keep this cd on repeat).
Overall Impression — 10
Did it compare to other albums (artists)? It did very well in my opinion as there's nothing else like it (as far as I know). Most impressive songs from the album are If You Can't Leave It Be, Might As Well Make It Bleed, Carry This Picture & Ghost Of A Good Thing. It's completely different than any other cd I own. The lyric tend to get a bit whinny. Go and buy it give your ears a break!
