Listen to the bridge on Bring Me to Life.
Listen to the bridge on One Step Closer by Linkin Park.
'Nuff said.


Other than that, loved the CD.

I don't own it and I didn't listen to the entirety of every song, so I won't drop a vote, but I hated it. It was a lot of yelling and power chords and not very much music. They will forever hold a place with me for "Hurt", but this album was an epic disappointment for me. I bought I'm Only A Man from Emery instead and I'm not regretting the choice at all.

This CD is easily an 8, if not a 9 or 10. It is possibly TFK's best CD yet, with the other possible runners-up being Phenomenon and Set It Off, depending on your personal tastes. But, to me, this album is their most diverse, yet most complete and all-around solid effort. There are driving rock songs (Fire It Up, E For Extinction), there are slower ballad-esque songs (Watching Over Me, Look Away), there's even an almost pop-rock song in Forward Motion.

The one thing about this CD is that, to really enjoy and appreciate it, you have to listen to the whole CD, in order, without skipping any of the tracks, to appreciate just how diverse and well-crafted it is. Songs that sound poor or repetitive when listened to alone or as singles (Fire It Up especially) sound much better when they're presented as part of a whole, rather than standing alone.

Even when two songs on the harder side follow each other (Bring Me To Life into E For Extinction for example), they never get monotonous. Because there's a ballad coming up next, it's not rock overload. Unlike Skillet's Awake, which suffers from a ballad overload, this album hits the perfect balance between soft and hard songs on a rock album.

All in all, one of TFK's best, and easily one of the best albums out this year.

9/10. Easily TFK's best album, and I think it's the best Christian album released in 2009. it's even better than Innocents and Instinct. Every single of the harder songs I think are excellent. In pretty much every way it's better than their previous albums, which are already quite good.

Does anyone else think that Trever sounds almost identical to Chester Bennington on parts of The Part That Hurts The Most (Is Me)? I had to glance at the album again to see that I was listening to the same band.

Absolutely Brilliant.
Likely TFK's best work yet.
10/10
