Review by Brian Terry

O.K. First off this review is going to be honest and non biased because that is what every musician needs to grow not a bunch of false empty glad handing just to be nice. The good and the bad but when it all comes down to it, it's only one persons opinion others will surely have differences of opinion on some things.

That being said there is very little I can be critical about on this record so we will start there.
The only thing I didn't care for on this album was track 6 "All but truth" now that being said I love all the parts of it but to me the song doesn't flow, the transitions feel too abrupt and oddly paired like they tried to put a bunch of different song riffs and ideas all into one song. By themselves each part is great but don't seem to fit together right to me. Now for an album to have only one song you don't care for is really good since on average it is more like 4 or 5 even with signed artists so they are already way ahead of the curve.

Now lets get to the good stuff.
This record reminds me a lot of little influences of all the great experimental rock bands of the 90's but with a modern twist. These guys know how to write a song tastefully, not too much, not too little, just right on the money with everything. No one showboats which is great since I find that showboating usually cheapens a song. My favorite tracks are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 10. Austin's vocals are fantastic throughout the record, he is very good at manipulating his voice to strike an emotional chord. At times there is an almost manic and desperate tone to his voice that comes across quite hauntingly. The songs are very well written and the musicianship is definitely there. Fry shows that he commands all the skills needed to go toe to toe with a lot of heavy hitters in much heavier music genres but doesn't feel the need to over play to prove anything which is the mark of a mature drummer. The guitars throughout the album are perfectly paired which again showcases the maturity of the musicianship, they don't feel a need to prove anything, just what fits perfect for the tone of the song which a lot of local bands fail to grasp. Mikes guitar on the album is right in the pocket and again fills the song so that there are not any empty spaces where you feel something sounds missing. A lot of really great riffs and the accent riffs that accompany each other when you listen closely are quite clever and don't sound stock. My favorite song is "Quickly" all together their best song in my opinion although I love the chorus in "Long Way" which has perfect tone and mood.
Most of the songs on this album seem to have the same tempo and pocket groove which is well done but in future I would love to see what they could do with something a little more up tempo and driving on a song or two.
All in all this record is way better than most of what is being pushed on modern rock radio right now and has every right to take its place amongst the best of them.

Well done gentlemen, count yourselves among those who actually get it.

There, I said it

I'm a fan of Korn, Limp Bizkit, Static X, so on so forth... These guys are an interesting mix of Creed meets Korn, affair with Static X, and love child with Twelve Stone. All in all... Love them!!! Oh yeah, favorite so far is Quickly!!


All I can say is, I love it!!! I can't wait to see these guys live!!!!!
