Sound — 6
I bought this CD 2 days ago and there's some good and bad parts of it. All of the songs sound the same except for maybe "On My Own", but man, if you listen to this CD for a while, all the songs seem to blend together. I think they really need to incorporate some new variety on their next CD. ALthough, this isn't entirely bad, because a lot of people love to listen to this angry kind of music (Including me).
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are extremely personal. Adam and the rest of the band (as explained by the little video feature on the computer) really put their heads and hearts together in writing these lyrics. And overall, I think anyone can relate to these lyrics, young, old, male or female.
Overall Impression — 7
I really think this is better than their self titled album. The songs on the CD I really enjoy are "Get Out Alive" and "On My Own" because those are the most creative songs, in my opinion on the CD. I really love the soulful lyrics, but on the other hand, the fact that the songs all sound the same kind of cancels it out. This is a good CD to listen to one in a while, but it's not something I could listen to every day. I think if they got some more variety in their music, they could really go places. But for now, they stand at an overall 7.
