Sand Rider's Doomsday was the song that stood out for me, too. I enjoyed the album but it's nothing I'm going to tell all my friends about.

Lol Steve sounds nothing like Cove.

Not a fan of the review, kudos for trying though.

The album is really great, and certainly not boring.

I'd personally give their Wall of People release a bit more credit, given the energy and lasting appeal of many of the tracks. That said, the album as a whole wasn't very consistent, and made it fall short of an outstanding release; so in that respect I agree with you. All in all good review, I'll check this out and keep your words in mind.

I don't use drugs. Good music makes me high. Since I was listening to this particular CD when writing the review, I was not high.

Also, there isn't anything "never done before" here, because this very band did them before, and executed it better, on their last album.

The first part of this album has songs that seem to stand out, then it kind of faded and the songs got weird as it progressed, i thought upon first listen.

And they have no relation in sound to Secret and Whisper. That's kind of out of the ballpark.The sounds here are a lot of loud soft dynamics fitted for radio. I would say they are like There for Tomorrow, but not as good or emotional.

I listened to three songs off this earlier.. it wasn't bad, but nothing made me want to listen to more... and I would rather listen to Dog Problems.

Will give it another chance probably.

Both, obviously. I'm, of course, the shittiest reviewer in the world. Everyone knows that. Also, my slutty ex-girlfriend fucked one of the band members. I was pissed, so this is my way of getting even.

Seriously, though, this album isn't awful, but this band seems capable of much better, but appear to be satisfied going by the numbers.
