Sound — 6
The album itself is nice and heavy, but they do go a little overboard on the power chords. The drumming is really nice, their drummer can make some complicated patterns sound easy. The singer really has a unique and versatile voice, as can be heard on "Mirrors Reflection" and the opening track "Smile."

Lyrics — 8
Their singer has an extremely unique voice. He can scream and sing really well, but at times it can be hard to understand him. His screaming talent is especially heard on "Mirrors Reflection" and "Impact." His lyrics are really deep and meaningful, they can easily get stuck in your head.

Overall Impression — 8
It's definitely much better then their "Welcome" album. The guitar can get repetative and the singing sounds whiny at times, but it's still a great album that can hold its own. The best songs are Smile, Again And Again, Now, One Night Stand, I, and Impact. It's a good solid album, but it can stand to be better.
