All this CD does is further the stereotype of 'Christian bands': They are second-rate copycats of the mainstream. Of course the sterotype doesn't apply to all bands of the genre, but Hawk Nelson is shameless when it comes to stealing melodies from other established punky-pop bands like Blink, Simple Plan, etc.

I liked a few tracks off their first CD but this second one isn't cutting it for me. I'm all for the pop factor but this is too far. All the songs sound relatively similiar and I couldn't get into it. I liked how "Head On Collision" started but once it hit the chorus, I lost interest. There's a few tracks that will probably make it up the charts on Christian radio, but none will break past that.
