I remember when i first heard As Daylight Dies, I fell instantly in love with it. It was a little different than their previous work, but great none the less.
Now onto their second self titled album. On first listen i was extremely disapointed. Unlike the previous album, there wasn’t any songs that stood out and made me think this is an awesome song. There really isn’t stand out songs. There just seems to be an album full of mediocricy.
After many listens there are a few songs that i like, but there are also other not so great songs. Another problem i have is that some of the lyrics seem to be written by a teenager. In the song “starting over”, which is one of the worst songs on the album, Howard sings “Can we start again, Go back in time to where we started”. To me it just doesn’t sound right at all.
Overall, I think this is their weakest effort and I am not digging the new direction they are going.
