Some things about Phenomenon totally blows The Art of Breaking away. Like the rapping, Ordinary is insane speed, Rawkfist even has dual rapping! This Is A Call is lyrically one of my absolute favourite songs, and it's beautiful too.

I haven't heard any of the Set It Off albums. All I can say is that if you loved TFK before, I think you'll love them now as well, but don't expect the same thing as Phenomenon. What I think is that the two albums help compliment eachother. Phenomenon has a tighter heavy sound and The Art of Breaking has a more melodic sound.

If you like heavy rock music you'll love these guys, and to TFK fans I'd say you'll love it, but don't be disappointed that it doesn't sound like Phenomenon. As I said before, the albums blow away eachother.
um...actually nothing about Pheonomenon blow s this album away. you just hav to understand that Trevor McNevan wasn't a bad rapper but wasn't in his element when he did rap. this album RAWKS

Actually, there was some things that blew it away.

I found the songs on AOB to lack any Spiritual depth, while on Phenomenon every song, except Rawkfist, had a Spiritual meaning.

WHAT? Phenomenon, Step to Me(only slightly), Break the Silence, Bounce, Quicken had almost no spiritual depth to them at all(except for Bounce which had none whatsoever). Only slight mentions and stuff like that. Overall almost nothing. Absolute, The Art of Breaking, Hurt, Hit the Floor(Chorus no, but the verse very much so) Make Me a Believer, Breath You In, and Hand Grenade all had huge spiritual depth. Maybe it's too deep for you to understand, but this album is the deepest they've come out with so far, and it is full of more maturity than people seem to realize.

Phenomenon - Means to stand out as a Christian
Step to me - It's a song against the Devil
Last Words - The bridge they says to thank God everday
This Is A Call - Self explanatory
Rawkfist - none
Faith, Love, and Happiness - If everyone could just see God there would be Faith, Love, and Happiness
I Climb - The outro says they won't be quited about God
Quicken - It talks about how God has control over everything
New Design - This song Trev' said it was about someone who isn't a Christian, so the song is how they feel
Bounce - The bridge they talk about there is more than what we see (God)
Ordinary - I'm guessing the chorus is about how nothing can take the place of God
Break the Silence - Talks about winning people to Christ

The Art of Breaking did have Spiritual depth, I'm not going to argue that, and it's not too deep for me, I know what all the songs mean. But, sometimes parts of the song make no sense whatsoever. Like Hurt, what does the verse mean? Hit the Floor the chorus? The Art of Breaking, I guess you can sort of guess what it means, but it seemed rather secular.

Absolute: calling out to God for help
Slow Bleed: how no one can truly obey God's laws, but we need to try
The Art of Breaking: I believe the verses are from the perspective of God. Words like, "I'll pick you up, won't let you fall, I'll build your trust and it won't hurt at all" sound like God pulling at someone's heart to follow Him
Stranger: this song is about someone constantly witnessing for God, but no one is listening
Hurt: another song I believe from the perspective of God. This song is saying that it hurts God when we make mistakes and when we try things on our own.
Hand Grenade: I'm not sure, but I believe this is about someone trying to get through with God's message to people who think that is very untrue.
Move: pretty much nothing
Hit the Floor: in the verses it is saying how we are supposed to fear God and how we need his guidance.
Go:This, despite what some people think, is just a flat out "I love You" song to God.
Make Me a Believer: title pretty much explains it
Breath You In: duh what this one is about

I think that Absolute and Breathe You In alone blow Phenomenon away with spritual depth.

Those are actually different veiws on what I thought some of the songs meant. But you're right there is Spiritual depth on the CD, just not as blatant?

Here is what I think the songs mean

Absolute - Asking for God's help basically.
Slow Bleed - This song is about backsliding, and finding your way back to God.
Art of Breaking - Basically what you think.
Stranger - I'm listening to the song right now, and I'm trying to put two and two together, but I think you might be right.
Hurt - I think it's about free will, and how it Hurts whenGod cant help us.
Hand Grenade - It's kind of like a song of submitting yourself to God, Take me, Make me, Break...
Move - It's a song of someon finally making that step to become a Christian, if you watch the music video you'll get it.
Hit The Floor - I think it's about how much we really need God, like we're to weak.
Go - It's like a rock worship song, talking about getting into God.
Make Me a Believer - What more is there to say?
Breathe You In - Awesome worship song.

So there you go, that's how I see it. Excuse me while I go get the CD and take it for a spin.

Our views are pretty close. But don't you see? The Art of Breaking is one of the most spiritual rock albums to come out by Thousand Foot Krutch EVER!!!

Yeah, the only one we really see differently is Slow Bleed and Move. I actually couldn't figure out the what the heck he was talking about on Stranger.

Yeah, stranger made almost no sense to me at all. So i just listened to it over and over again and it came to me. Actually our interpretations of Slow Bleed are pretty close.

My one concern on the guitars is the fact that some of the solos seem jammed in to try to show off that Trevor/Jamie (it says trevor does the guitars in the cd booklet) can do them. For example I personally felt that the solo is Hand Grenade didn't fit the song...I mean that's my perspective. I've heard the secular "virtuosos" and they try so hard to go fast some of them go out of sync with the rhythm. That's what I hear in Hand Grenade.

I'm not so sure that Trevor does the guitars. I think he does the power chords and some leads, but the solos I'm sure is Jamie. All though, in Go and Hurt the fast guitars are done by Adam of Three Days Grace.
