If your a fan of All That Remains, you MUST own this cd. Not that it sounds like ATR, but hearing Phil at such a young age is priceless. As for a Shadows Fall fan, its still good. Being mixed by Adam D. of Killswitch, the mix on this album is somewhat…’mushy’ oddly enough. Then again, this was recorded in ‘97, so some leeway should be given. Evidence of death vocals is prominent on this album, for fans of “The Weak Willed” and “Six” by ATR, so the vocals should tickled your fancy. The first 5 tracks are the best on the disc, and show a wide range of musical talent and range. Overall, this record should be picked up. It holds up for fans of both bands alike.
