Sound — 10
The sound is fantastic here. There's a plethora of sound coming from Jack's guitar throughout, although he does use the piano at times. The only real fault is Jack's shrill voice, and his tendency to carry long tones with it.

The lyrics are often times mysterious. It seems like there are more important messages being relayed by some of the songs.
Overall Impression — 10
Definetly as good as the last albums, if not better. In The Cold, Cold Night is a song that grows on you over time, the best songs on this album are probably "The Hardest Button To Button", "There's No Home For You Here", "Seven Nation Army", and "Black Math". I love the blues sound, and the simple riffs. It doesn't take long to learn any of these songs, and start playing along. If it was stolen, I'd definitely buy it again. Great album.
