Sound — 8
TIJ is now on their second full-length album, and it is quite a good effort indeed, but I am still not quite seeing the big improvements that I had wanted from their last album of theirs.
Lyrics — 7
"Magnolia" is definitely one of my favorite songs off the album. My favorite lines in the song are, "I'm sorry that this is how it has to be in the end. I simply have nothing left to give. You've drained me, For the worst, I'm the one that always put you first, I am alone. You let me down." Powerful lyrics from a powerful voice. I seriously understand where this guy is coming from. Like I have had friends that will use me, when I had done so much for them, since I am just that nice, and then they don't realize how much I care for them.
Overall Impression — 8
The sound has stepped up a bit than from their first album, but I am still seeing the flaws from them that still need to be solved. I did not see the best of lyrics yet, and I would really like to one their next effort. Still a good album, though.
