8. It's definitely apparent that the Afters have grown musically since their first CD, but this CD still is lacking in some areas. There are some standout tracks ("MySpace Girl", the title track, "The Sound") but also a few weaker ballads that keep this CD from being a top one. Havens sounds great vocally, but some of his lyrics are a little bit repetitive and boring. The rest of the band sounds pretty good, but again, it's not top notch stuff. The Afters are moving in the right direction, but they have a long ways to go before I could proclaim them as being one of the best bands in Christian rock.

I need to get this...

So, I got it yesterday. I have to say, my first impressions are good. I'm not going to vote yet, but I have a feeling it will be listened to quite a bit. My early favorites are the title track, Tonight, We Are The Sound, Keeping Me Alive, and Myspace Girl ().
