This review absolutely nails it.
Great job. I love this CD. I would have to agree with you on the creativity part though, some parts were exceptional, others were so-so. Overall a great CD and a great review.

I think the lyrics for that particular part of "You Leave" are

"and then you leave......."

Great album, it didn't live up to what I was hoping it would be, still good though.

I agree.
I'm was a little bummed to hear the more scream-y vocals...but maybe I just need to give it more time.

hmm...
i loved the shit out of escape and saw them live a bunch, but to be honest i didn't pick up the new cd because i just didn't like the more hardcore/screamy sound.
after this review i might go check it out though....

Thanks a lot for the kind words, this was my first review ever and I think choosing a local favorite was a good choice. Enjoy the album and check them out live for sure.

I also was thrown off with all the screaming on the album, I still might pick it up. Splinters and "I Am Only An Island" are great.

Good review, it's short but summarizes the album really well, and I have an idea of how it sounds.

Yeah you are right. I was trying to do the best I could just from listening haha.

What I really enjoy about this album are the lyrics and the delivery of them. They are extremely relate-able and I always find songs about death sort of questionable...but Therefore I Am definitely handled it skillfully and they just hit you so hard.
