Sound: This band has a great sound. However, this band is fairly emo and in your face. If you like this type of music you will love this band. They have great energy and upbeat songs. They are very young yet very innovative. The lead guitarist has come up with some very catchy riffs that blend in well to the music. // 9

Lyrics: This bands lyrics are fairly normal of this type of band. They like to scream a lot, which adds some intensity. Also, there are two singers, the bass player and rythm guitarist, which combine and overlap their singing to harmonize and synch which sounds great. The downfall to their lyrics is that they are all of the same theme. The whole CD is basically them crying about their girlfriend cheating on them and how they are hurt and upset about it. However, the words they chose to use aren't corny or repetitive like other bands. They fit well with the music and don't get old. // 8

Overall Impression: This band has done a great job on their debut CD. Although they aren't a very big name yet, they have some really great potential. They have quickly become one of my favourite bands. This album is definitely worth buying if you are into this genre, however, you might find troubles getting your hands on a copy as it is probaly hard to find. Keep your eyes open for this band though. // 9
