Sound — 5
This CD is totally different from Dear Diary, I'll tell you that right now. Be prepared for a different sound, instrumentally and vocally. Their music really didn't impress me much, instead of gaining I think they lost their touch a little bit, but they still held on, and I actually enjoyed the styles they used. I think they could've done a better job with this album, because on some of the songs, like The Levy, it sounds like it was slapped together in five minutes, but you can tell they spent more time on songs like World War Me, because it has a whole lot better tone quality, and the vocals don't sound too scratchy.
Lyrics — 9
From First to Last definitely improved on their lyrics, like on World War Me, where he's talking about, how people starve themselves and take pity in themselves, and on Mothersound, he talks about how people do things for other people to get them to like them.
Overall Impression — 8
Overall, I thought the album was pretty decent, but could've used a whole lot more work, cause I've heard Ross Robinson produce better than this. Download a couple of their songs and if you like their new sound, then get it, but if you don't then well don't. I would probably get this CD again if it was ever lost or stolen.
