Sound — 10
Wow. This band is incredible. An awesome debut. Senses Fail is extremely innovative: combining common power chords with catchy leads and deep lyrics. The music is mainly hardcore while the lyrics deliver the emotion. The band can also interestingly transfer hardcore-sounding songs into acoustic, such as "As The Ground Folds."
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are amazing and really intertwine with the music as a whole. The musicianship brings out the hardcore half of the band while the lyrics and vocals convey the emo half. The screaming also emphasizes both hardcore and emo traits.
Overall Impression — 10
If you are interested in hardcore/emo/screamo, this is the band for you. The most impressive songs would have to be "Stephen," "Freefall Without A Parachute," and "One Eight Seven."
