Sound — 1
I woke up around 3 am in the morning one night and heard what I thought was a temper tantrum from my baby sister. Then I started to hear terrible guitar riffs and dull drum beats. It the hit me, this is Underoath. I borrowed this album from a friend (I'm a classic rock fan I figured I'd give something new a try). I'm now in the process of organizing a crusade to defeat this style of music and revive the classic rock sound. Why people see Underoath as real music is still a mystery to me but I have too go buy a bottle of ibuprofen after hearing about 2 songs from this band. Music should be an enjoyable experience, not a torturous one.

If I knew what the hell they're singing without inventing a scientific device to decode the lyrics I might give the lyric a 2 just because I'm a nice person, but I don't have the skills to invent such a device. The singer sounds like he's bulemic and is gagging on something over the toilet which is not music to me, apparently it is to some people considering this band even exists. I can't stress how much I hate this band and this whole genre of music (my username describes it all). Don't support this band or this style of music, it is plain trash.
Overall Impression — 1
This album belongs to be used as a frisbee, and that might be giving this CD too great of privleges. This is not music. If you play an instrument you should realize this. While these guy's are making money selling the crap they call their music I'm struggling to sell a CD. It's funny how life works.
