I liked some of the clips I listened to here, so I bought the album. It is not bad, especially for a debut. I will also say I am NOT a fan of Underoath at all. I like the hard rock edge of this album. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is the songs are all a little too similar sounding, needs a little more variation of the sound. I think that will come with more experience.
More then exceeds expectations. I am a huge fan and have been a huge fan of Underoath since the beginning but sometimes I need a break from the screaming and need some time to calm myself. This CD has accomplished that. The lyrics are inspiring, the instrumentals are solid and the Vocals won't make your ears bleed. Pick it up, it was worth the money!
