Sound — 10
After three years and two EPs, Saosin has put out there first full length CD. This CD combines a few metal-ish riffs here and there with great vocal melodies, solid bass playing, and insane, technical drumming. The sound is great. The guitar parts and solid and technical. They are very catchy. The drumming is appropriatly busy, and the fills are great and so is every single beat.

The lyrics are great. They are good lyrics, with out being over metaphorical. They are easy to understand and relate with. The singing is just awesome. It's so good. Every melody is great. Cove manages to write catchy, interesting vocals over busy fast guitar riffs.
Overall Impression — 10
This CD is just redicoulously good. Easily the best CD I own. Every song is solid, and it's easy to listen to the whole CD all the way through. For any one who has doubts that Saosin's new stuff isn't going to be as good because they are signed now and used a big producer, that's not true at all. it's still Saosin, and it still rocks.
