This cd is pretty good. The guitar is great compared to any other "warped tour" type band. The drums are good, may not be that originall, but they still work and flow well with the other instruments. the vocals, well, the crying gets annoying after too much of this, but the energy involved is great. the lyrics are very good and intellegent, which is hard to find lately. But all the songs being about war/suicide and death does get old after a while. Overall its good stuff and its worth the $12.
