Sound — 10
The sound isn't your modern day Jimmy Eat World. Much quieter but in a good way. There is some heavyer stuff on there like the tracks: "Your New Aesthetic," "Blister," "Clarity" and the first bit of "Goodbye Sky Harbor". Calmer songs like "Table For Glasses" and the other part of "Goodbye Sky Harbor". It's the ultimate "Emo" album.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are hard to understand due to the tricky way they were written but very good if you actually look at the lyrics while listen to the songs. The song meanings range from the problems with record labels to watching your crush play in the snow. What makes this album amazing is that every song isn't about how "she dumped me" and things like that.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is amazing. This sound is missing from Bleed American, but there is a trace of this style in Futures. The most impressive tracks on this album are "Lucky Denver Mint" and "Believe In What You Want". If your not a big fan of the big guitar riffs and flashy garbage, pick this up. You wont be disapointed.
