Sound — 9
I bet this album has already been listened to by probably a gillion people, but it still impresses me. I really don't take an interest in chritian-rock, but I really like this. The whole album is full of great sound, I mean, You listen to it and you're thinkin to yourself 'wow'. The guitar playing is supurb, or at least I think so. I've just recently listened to (and purchased) this album, and what caught my attention was the fact that the band sounded like they wanted you to take an interest in their album. Me and my friends really enjoyed listening to it in the weight room, it's full of hardcore beats that will get your adrenaline rushing.
Lyrics — 8
This band is a screamer band, so people really wouldn't be able to figure that this band was devoted to God, because of all the heavy metal style playing, but you listen to this guy and you really feel him. He has a very clean style scream, and when he does his thing, you want to get up and do a karoke along to the song. There are a few lyrics that I really liked, but I really liked them when it was all put together along to the music, I mean, it all fell into place. I only have a few things to say, the screamer is very good, and I don't know if he does the singing also, but the vocalist had a very nice voice.
Overall Impression — 9
I think this album will take a good run along with other bands that are selling real good, ther's only one problem with the overall album, not enough tracks(there are only 11). Another thing is that the band has one song that really makes you think that the rest of the album is gonna be relly lame. I don't know what it was, I don't know if was just an instrumental or somethin' else, all I know is that it bored the hell out of me and I didn't to the whole thing. Another flaw in the album was that some of the songs took to long to start off, and I need a song that will catch my attention fast. Besides all of the negatives, the album was freakin' awesome. I suggest that you go out and buy it yourself and see what I'm talkin about, and if you do, listen for the first song on the album, it's the best song of the CD.
