Sound — 10
The only way to describe this record is an assult of sound, bombarding you with the raw vocals that are sung with so much emotion you can't help but get into it. The drum beats are so intense you can almost feel your heart pounding twice as fast just to keep up. The guitars are perfect, not too grungy, not too clean, and just good old power chords to keep it going. The bass basically just follows the guitar, but gets its time to shine in the last song "The Strobe Life." Like I said, its almost impossible to describe untill you hear it for yourself.

The howling of singer Matt Caughthran is what helps make this album so unique. On first impression he sounds like the most pissed off person with a microphone you can find, and once you read the lyrics, you'll certainly know why. It covers everything from ODs, drug addiction, trying to stop the bleeding from a gunshot victim and shows you their Los Angeles, not the glitz and glamour.
Overall Impression — 10
The Bronx are a breath of fresh air in this day and age of the same old music played again and again. Its pure emotion. You can hear the blood, sweat, tears, and drugs in this album. I would absolutely buy this album again in a heartbeat. Hope you Enjoy.
