It's something new and different. Only about two songs that really didn't stand out to me. Besides that, it's a great album. I gave it an 8. Oh, and "Put Your Lips To The TV" totally rocks face off.

I LOVE THIS CD!!! One of my fav's right now. It's good to see Project 86 explore beyond their original genre, which Rival Factions does perfectly. I got to see them live at Six Flags a couple of months ago and they played "Evil", "Put Your Lips to the TV", and "The Forces Of Radio Have Dropped A Viper Into The Rhythm Section" (one of the best songs to hear live) and they all sounded great. I also like Caveman Jam because of the bass (i just figured it out on the bass and I'm planning to tab it soon ). To sum up....... 10!!!

Its a great disc, better than the last one, but less good than Songs to Burn Your Bridges By, which was amazing. I like listening to the songs, but theres alot of chorus and not enough story telling, difference within a song. Although lots of bands repeat their choruses way to much it just puts a damper on because the song gets boring faster. Its a 7.

It's a very solid album. Great work Project!
I think it sounds like a combination of Truthless Heroes and The Killers and something else.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it, especially Pull Me Closer Violent Dancer, Cavemen Jam and Evil. *thumbs up*

Exactly. The music sounds pretty much the same throught this album. Save for the two slower songs (Molotov and Normandy) The guitar sounds the same, and you can't hear the bass as much. And when you can hear the bass, it is distorted (Caveman Jam) and blends into the guitar even more. The only song that really stood out to me was The Sanctuary Hum. That is a great song. But overall, very disappointing for me. I like TH much better. Come to think of it, I liked pretty much every other one better.

Are you freaking kidding me? The bass is almost as present as the guitar, if not more in most of the songs.

I would agree, only I think it makes the album sound cohesive and better. Also, isn't that true with their other albums? If you think this album sounds similar, don't you think the same about ...And the Rest Will Follow or Drawing Black Lines? The songs on Rival Factions are certainly diverse enough that it doesn't sound like one song on repeat (a la Nickelback). That said, I understand this album being a love it or hate it kind of thing for Project 86 fans.

Personally, I love the album. It's catchy! Project 86 making fun songs is actually really cool. I am a Project fanboy, so it's not like I'd actually criticize them, anyways.

I don't know, maybe its because the bass is distorted half the time. It is really present on Caveman Jam, but it is not as prominent in my opinion as in their other albums.

I respect your opinion, I was just disappointed with this album. It is OK for them to have fun, I just liked their older sound better.

Me too, I'm afraid.

I liked the cd, but it just wasn't Project to me. It was like ordering a steak and discovering it tastes like ice cream; it was good for what it was, but it wasn't what I wanted.
