This is a great CD. it is much better than “Arrivals & Departures.” For starters, vocalist Shane Told must have worked on his screaming. There is more screaming in this record. His clean vocals are as great as always. He has put together a great vocal performance from start to finish. The lyrics on Arrivals were bland and cliche, the lyrics are much more powerful and much more meaningful. The guitar work is excellent. The entire band has stepped up in front of Shane. The drumming is much better than on Arrivals. They seemed to have mixed “When Broken is Easily Fixed” with “Discovering the Waterfront” to get this record.
Best song hands down is “A Great Fire.” Screaming is awesome, melodic choruses, drumming is great.
