Thanks for putting this one up.

I gave it a "9."
I am loving the CD right now and I can't put it down.

It takes an awful lot for me to give an album a "10."

The Powerless Rise is my favorite album from As I Lay Dying.

An Ocean Between Us was my favorite until I bought this one. It may be because it is new, but at the moment The Powerless Rise is my favorite from AILD.
