Underoath: Define The Great Line

Sound — 5
This time around you can really tell this Christian rock band means business, they have progressively became more hardcore and have pounded out more phenomenal riffs and powerchords that drive the soul to crindging in a good way. The level of frustration at one's own self is felt through Spencer's vocals, but the true message is that we need to quit joking ourselves and get it right with Jesus, especially with all the scriptures which foretell the future in the Bible coming to life in todays mideast war and Israel and Russia and Syria (EZEKIEL 38:39). Read is you will see the resembelance Gog and Magog = Russia!

Lyrics — 5
They all have the same inner struggles with overcoming something or someone you know is right or wrong, you have to make the judgement that will later be judged upon yourself by a higher being, and with lyrics like "I hope to God you" sends a message from the angels to reach out to all kinds of genre's such as this Hardcore heavy metal album.

Overall Impression — 7
I think this album will take at least 2 times to grow on you if you were expecting "They're Only Chasing Safety Part 2" but you will see and succumb to the heavier more forceful art of "Define The Great Line." The DVD is a plus if you bought it that way, it is a really behind the scenes to the guys or Underoath, You can find out how Different and How The Same The Guys Of The Band Are, it's amazing on how they all mesh together to become this epic, evangelestic source of outreach to todays war driven youth.

    I really liked Act Of Depression a lot more but, considering it's their like 4th or 5th CD it's not bad
    I say this was their best stuff. All of their stuff is good, but this one in particular stands out to me. Moving for the sake of motion is the best!
