Great review, Jeremy!
I'll be hard pressed if I find another effort as strong as this for 2010. You can tell how much passion, emotion, and hard-work they put into making this album.
I've been looking for a way to describe the lyrics on this album, and I think you hit the nail on the head. Although they seem very personal in nature, it's definitely something everyone can connect with in some way or form.
The CD release show was fantastic this weekend. They are by far one of the best live acts out there.
