Some of the lyrics are kind of amateur. Like John Cooper couldn't think of anything that great to say. In spite of that, this is a good CD - songs like "Monster" and "Hero" and "Awake and Alive" make the album.
i pre-ordered this cd before the due date, & i dont regret it. it's an awesome cd, even thought i wish wish it was more hardcore rock like comatose. i was confused on why they would write songs like "it's not me it's you", "sometimes", "dont awake me" & the line in "awake and alive" saying "i'll do what i want cuz this is my life." but i realized he's (john l. cooper) is the voice for alot of people who cant speak up for themselves. like the kind of people who have messed up lives (& it wasnt their fault they have that kind of life) it was someone elses fault which made them turn out with w 'messed up life. thank you john cooper for writing these songs (that do not have CHEESY lyrics!!!) becuz i can really truly relate to these songs...gm<3
This is an amazing CD. But is not the best ever. Like "Awake and Alive"'s lyrics, "this is my and i'll do what i want." is not a very good Christian verse.The same thing with "Its Not Me its You".It is like saying, "I'am not responsible for actions. But that is just my opinion.
I bought this cd not too long after it came out. I really enjoyed some of the songs on it, some of them being more of my favorites as to others from their older cds. Overall I would've liked the cd if there hadn't been quite as many slower songs. I am glad I bought it though and will keep listening to the cd.
