This record deserves the score it received and much more. The music itself is a refresh compared to alot of the "generic" bands floating around the scene, and the lyrics are simply and purely honest which is something those bands are lacking as well. I haven't heard such an honest record in quite a long time, and I listen to almost the entire album nearly everyday; I can't get sick of it.
And, I totally agree with the people saying that they think this album was "written for them." It truly hits home.
