Well.. I can't say I like it as much as their other CD's.. but I'll give it a 7 or an 8. I like it alot. GREAT lyrics.. great show.. great songs. Just the sound of it is a bit different.. not as great as the others.

I like it. But it's not my favorite CD ever. The lyrics are okay, but I don't love them either.

7.

yeah, sounds like they just continued from 'about a burning fire'. doesn't feel like they progressed any.

I believe this to be the finest Blindside work aside from A Thought Crushed My Mind.

Where About a Burning Fire lacks consistency, this has it. Where Silence lacks energy, this has it. Where Blindside lacks great songwriting, this has it. All in all, just a great cd to have.

I love the songwriting.. the thing I don't like.. is the overall 'sound' of the CD. The last two were more enjoyable. But heck. I like it.

Some good songs, and overall a good cd. The only other Blindside album i have is A Thought Crushed My Mind, which is quite different.
Some nice chilled out songs, some very good lyrics, but not amazing.

I love that cd. Seriously, I listen to it a lot. I have two of their old cd's and they are pretty good. But I have to say that this is the best cd so far. I like their old stuff too though.

The CD isn't their best, but it is a good CD. I don't know if I like the new sound as much. I liked the sound of Silence and About a Burning Fire better

Dude, blindside is easy one of my favs. I own the great depression, silence and about a burning fire. I voted a 9, theres 2 songs i'm not crazy about, i love the rest. Blindside always rocks, such a great cd. amazing.

I gave it a 7. To me, it didn't have much repeatability (if that makes sense). It wasn't bad, but none of the songs really stood out and made me want to hear them again. Silence has been my favorite Blindside CD so far.
