So this review is basically a rant about lyrical content?

after reading this review, let me say this.
this was not a review.

the bottom line is this.
the reviewer sounds like a dumbass when going on and on about religiousness for nearly the entire "review".

yah, not to be an asshole or anything but this didn't feel like much of a review. although i do agree with some of what you said, i think you should focus more on the tracks themselves and the specifics about the songs more then your opinion of the bands image. all that was really discussed ( musicaly ) was vocals and lyrics.

don't give up though. keep writting.

Admittedly, I think I went a little overboard.

Just because a group is "Christian metal" doesn't mean every song should be about faith. Everything is related in some way; I've found most of their songs to deal with serious topics. Danger: Wildman-for example, no it isn't about faith but it's still a reflection and statement on how people live their lives..still a very Christian concept. Not exactly sure why the name the songs they do either but I'm guessing they don't like labeling things or wanted to do something different.

Like other people said the writing is good but lyrics are only one part of the equation :}

I never liked this band.
And this album further strengthens this dislike.

i agree with most the other comments so far, more a rant than anything, but i certainly see the similarities between them and UO. i also agree that there musicianship is incredible on this album, still in my cd player.

of all the hype for bands like green day tdwp bring out a blinder that most mainstream audiences are simply missing out on, couldnt be more happier when i heard they cracked the top 20 over there in the u.s. can't wait til they tour australia, i'll be there for sure.

i'd still like to see other reviews you write.

Why did you put this in here? Age doesnt mean anything about how many fans they have.
