Um, what?

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

I really like the song "Turn it Up". I love the references to all the different songs.

The chorus is a stupid party anthem, and the "oh oh oh"s feel a bit forced.
The only good thing about the verse lyrics is how it incorporates album and song titles.

Somehow in the couple months since I last heard The Reckoning, I realized how boring Pillar's music is. Or perhaps, how boring it's become.

When you call anything with harsh vocals "screamo", it makes as much sense as calling anything with distorted guitar "heavy metal".

Great cd! Much better then the Reckoning, I thought. Favorite song from the cd is Reckless Youth. Turn it Up was a cool tribute to other christian bands songs. Don't see that too often.

5/10. Other than Throwdown and maybe Reckless Youth, every other song is average and kind of bland. Nothing about this album keeps me coming back for more, it just for the most part sounds boring to me.
