Let me start with this... I'm a HUGE Rookie fan and I want him/them to do awesome and keep building on what they've got. But from what I've heard on this record, it sounds like light, slapped together, piano melodies to go with Ryan's overdone and under thought emo lyrics with a little acoustic guitar mixed in. This is definitely "stripped down". Some might dig it tho I guess. Best song - "Don't Tear Me Apart" and yes thats off the Goodnight Moon album as well. I was looking forward to this album for a long time! Agh! This pains me!

yayy finally!

this is all im going to listen to for the next 2 months or so! great job once again!

Ryan has outdone himself again!

This new album is hands down amazing. It is definetely a little different, but in an amazing way. There is a certain emotion that really comes out in this album. The Light Years Away full band demo is enough reason to pick this album up. I'd have to say that my favorite song on this entire record would be Tonight. Great job Ryan keep up the great work! I advise everyone to buy this immediately!
