Sound — 10
The sound of this album is mind blowing. From the riffs to the drum beat. The hooks are there to catch your attention and the songs continue to follow through with no disappointment. The lyrics follow great story lines. They aren't songs that we don't know what the artist is trying to talk about. The storyline follows form the start of the song til the end.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are powerful and meaningful. They deal with very rough topics that no one else has really talked about. From Teenage pregnency, to disfiguration, to how people view others. THe lyrics will hit home for anyone who has ever been judge or been labeled a "freak" or "ugly". James Michael brought his A game for this album with so many different styles.
Overall Impression — 10
The album as a whole was beautiful. I wouldn't be able to pick out a song that I dislike or that I would skip over. Comparing this to the "Heroin Diaries" is not even in the ball park. These two CDs are very different and picking which is better just isnt possible. I would buy this album over and over again if something happened to my copy. Bravo Nikki, DJ and James!
