Good review. I love this album. With a couple of listens, it's totally grown on me now. It's been on repeat for a day straight. But I definitely think Chasing The Wind and Somebody To Talk To are my favorite songs on the album, no doubt. They never fail to disappoint me.

Ha. I thought the exact opposite.

It's an interesting write up, but I'd probably lower all of the above scores, and give it anywhere between a 55-62% Three songs, plus one good EP song aren't enough to warrant much higher in my eyes.

They get 35% for Sure as Hell...that seems fair.

'Chasing the Wind' is a great song and definitely the most interesting on the album. After one whole listen through, I don't think it's (nearly) as good as their two last albums, but it's still very enjoyable and very, very infectious. It's just a little generic, with the exception of a few songs.

I love the self-titled, actually haven't really listened to the EP, and I haven't listened to anything from this yet either.

What is so special about Sure As Hell? I might be missing something, but there doesn't seem to be much to it.

Good review. Loved their second album. Didn't like the EP all too much. I'll be checking this out.

too bad santi was fantastic and actually a good listen.


both ratings on this is WAY too nice. only 2 or 3 songs i liked. id give it probably a 50%. to me, you put lipstick and dress up a pig but its still a pig. same applies here. i dont care how good production quality is (that deserves a 10 yes) but the songs are just lame. that "Edge" the self titled had is gone and now we can expect tours sponsered by MTV with this providence, all time low, and metro station. sweet!


and i have no problem with them "blowing up" so to speak, im not that fan, but i do have a problem when it sounds like theyre converting their sound to "blow up" and thats all i hear here. i guess we still got OWD and s/t.


side note:
i miss gatsby so damn much...

Mark my words. These guys will be a huge in a year.

They will get much more success with a record like this. I believe there will be a lot of fans who liked "Our Worlds Divorce" and "Self Titled" that won't be really into this Album. But these guys will get a larger fan base and finally get the success they deserve.

This is the start of something grand. These guys deserve to be playing larger venues to larger crowds. I for one loved the "Bright Lights" EP. I guess I'm just a sucker for a good hook. Great job guys. Keep the good music coming and I'll keep buying.
