Another terrible HN album. At least the lyrics and singing are better.

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

I don't see what you have against the album.

When a band puts out the same album 3 times in a row, one tends to dislike them. Even more so when the 3 albums are about as shallow as humanly possible.

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.

Or the fact that they're generic and awful.

Yes, Ancient History is a great song... although I like Turn It On and You Have What I Need too

Friend Like That, Arms Around Me, and Words We Speak are good too. although i don't really understand why some people keep saying that all three of their albums sound the same. Hawk Nelson Is My Friend is so much harder than Smile It's The End Of The World, which i think is more punk. and while Letters To The President was a good album, i thought it was softer and a little less mature than the other two.
