Funeral for a Friend: Hours

Sound — 10
The songs vary from the metal shredding of "The End Of Nothing," to the chord jamming on "Drive." All in all, Funeral have out done themselves, the songs will all get you addicted to the ablum, forcing you to listen to it in every spare second you have, leaving you with a warm sense of musical greatness in your ears. Whether you play electric or bass guitar, you will want to learn every riff off this album, especially the intro riff to "Roses For The Dead."

Lyrics — 8
Typical Funeral lyrics, singing about depression, lost love and low self-esteem. But, Funeral suprised me with "The End Of Nothing" which is based entirely round the hate in a relationship and the fights involved. "Hospitality" faces a very serious and emotionally hard-hitting area, being kept alive by a machine. The lyrics fit the songs well and match the mood perfectly. However, it's not all good, the repetition of a line or three at the end of the song tends to degrade the song, more so in "Hospitality."

Overall Impression — 10
This is definately one of Funeral's best albums to date. Buying the album was money well spent and I recommend it to everyone reading this. What do I love about the Album? The whole thing! The songs "The End Of Nothing," "Recovery," "All The Rage," and "Monsters" are the main attractions of the album. All in all, well done Funeral!
