Sound — 10
Without a doubt, another great album by Senses Fail. Although criticized for their first album for their hard, raw sound, Senses Fail has refused to listen and continue with the same power and emotion as their first CD and has even raised the hardcore/emo/screamo bar to a whole new level.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are extremely deep and meaningful; the band draws inspiration from literature, poetry, comparative religion, etc. Singer Buddy Nielsen has the talent to put the lyrics into effect and contribute to the overall theme of each song.
Overall Impression — 10
You can't deny this band has talent, just listen to songs such as "Lady In A Blue Dress," "Buried A Lie," "Bite To Break Skin" (possibly the best song on the album), "Rum Is For Drinking, Not For Burning" (perhaps the second best song on the album), and "The Irony Of Dying On Your Birthday." The entire album captures the creativity of Senses Fail in all aspects.
