its not too difficult to turn vocals up. any personal computer with the audio tracks could turn this into a masterpiece given the right mixing program.

I saw this band open up for Hawthorne heights I believe. couldn't get into them

This band is going to blow up in due time. The Wonder Years have, The Story So Far is on the brink, and Forever Came Calling without a doubt has the tools to become the next in line.

Great review Thomas, I love this record. A lot more than I thought I would.
At first, how short it was bothered me, but I realized it was only because I didn't want it to be over every time the album ended. They did a great job creating fulfilled songs in such a short amount of time. Not many Pop-Punk bands out today could do that IMO.
But yeah, it's definitely going on my 2012 best of list.

This is exactly how I view this album. If it had been released when NFG were huge in the mainstream this band would have been looked at as generic but now people can appreciate them for nailing a certain sound down.
