Sound — 10
This album was able to be catchy and pummeling at the same time, the drumming is impressive, the drop A# guitar work sounds catchy, and the vox(and gang vox) add a really cool touch. It's not screaming, but it's obviously not singing, which gives a very distinct, unique sound, almost like a really heavy punk band. Definitely something that sounds different and they pull it off very well.
Lyrics — 10
The singer uses not a scream, but more of a yell, like a hardcore punk 90's-esque band. The lyrics are impressive, most of the songs have a great meaning behind them, "I've got here worth fighting for" being one of more memorable ones on the album. The use of gang vocals on songs like "unspoken" give it a great feel too, they really took advantage of the group vox.
Overall Impression — 10
This album sets itself apart from many albums of this year, the catchiness and overall feel of the CD really stand out. Unspoken is definitely one of the better songs on the album, though all are awesome to listen to, definitely an album that should be picked up.
