On Define The Great Line, Underoath is as screamy, distorted, and reckless as ever. Right from the first track ("In Regards To Myself"), after a little humming, your already being bombarded by their sonic onslaught. Spencer's screaming is great, and the dual guitar work is amazing. So precise, and they have a lot of weird little melodies. My favorite tracks are "Everyone Looks so Good From Here", "In Regards To Myself", and "Writting On The Walls". The sound of the band is awesome, and all of the vocal trade offs (a screamer and a singer) are real cool to.

On this disc, Underoath scream in despair, but they also have a lot of insight and hope. The Christian act depicts terrible times, but not without explaining how to get through them. On "To Whom It May Concern", the seven minute ender, sings of holdign your head high and moving on, a unlikely thing from a screamo album.
Overall Impression — 9
Underoath have a real cool sound. They son't really sound like anyone does. They mix it up a lot with two screamers(in which Atreyu took the idea from) and have real cool sounding down tuned guitars. These guys are amazing, and they also have positive messages to cling on to. If I lost this, I would buy it again. One of the best CDs in my collection. For any hardcore screamo fan get this. For anyone wanting to branch out into screamo, get this or Their Only Chasing Safety, their previous album to this.
