Sound — 10
To be honest, I love the sound of this albulm. Underoath was a metal/hardcore band when they began. Now they are screamo. Most people say thet sold out and they suck now. I loved them then, and I still do now. They bring screamo to new heights on this cd. Every song has intense screaming, with very catchy melodies.

Dallas (Underoath's old vocalist) was good, but I like Spencer's sxream better. I think it's fuller, and it fits well with the music. Aaorn handles the singin, and he has a good voice. Underoath writes great lyrics. They are deep, meaningful, and different from most stuff out there. They are Christian, and their faith is evident in the lyrics, especially on "Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape."
Overall Impression — 10
I do not think Underoath sold out. They just tried something new, and I think they suceeded. The entire albulm stod out to me. I love the intense screams coupled with the soft melodies and fast riffs. This is a great CD. I would buy it again right away if it was stolen.
