This band rocks!! They have strong vocals and one of the most original sounds I've ever heard. All the songs have great lyrics and they're so powerful! They have a new CD due out in a few days and so far what I've heard of it is as good if not better!

It got a 6 from me because although it's really awesome musically and the vocals are really strong the repetitive choruses are almost unbearable to me. I mean the lyrics are great in the verses, some pretty original and creative stuff, but when they get to the chorus they just sing one line over and over and over and over again. On almost every song too. It just kinda turns me off from the cd, but if that's not the kinda thing that bothers you, go get it, it's a great cd besides that.

hmmm they are prettty good... but i say they get a 5.

first.. the guitars have so many effects it wouldn't matter if a 5 year old was palying all it is is a fuzz box. the rest of the music is pretty weak(it is heavy but just i geuss lame is a better word).

second... lyrics arn't the best good but not the greatsest


and the vocie just gets on my nerves too

i fell in love with this cd the first time i heard it. and there's no way you can't! it's got catchy melodies and awesome meaningful lyrics. and you couldnt ask for a better lead singer than adrienne leisching! she's so talented.

i like this cd better than their 2nd album, just because it's more my style- edgy, creative rock. it earned a 10.

Very unique. Very. Loads of guitar effects. Female vocals, that's something Christian rock needs more of.

Gets a 9.

uuuggghhh...........
it makes me want to go crazy. i hate that synthesized hard rock techno fake sound!!! It sorta reminds me of skillet. Adrienne has a nice voice. I think her voice would go better with pop. I agree about the repetitive choruses. The only song that i kind of like is "all over me".

bottom line...don't buy it!
