These guys deserve a 10 just for having awesome guitar riffs in their songs, that's rare these days! But this is the best album I own. Every song is UNBELIEVABLE! Especially Broken and The Way I Feel.

This was definately a great release for the band. Everysong is unique to itself. They have great riffs, and a good over all feel to their songs. When I listen to their cd, I just start at the beginning and listen all the way through. The cd has no bad songs. They all rank a 10 in my books.

Eric Weaver introduces something that's seemingly been lost in today's modern rock / Nu-Metal: the guitar solo. The technicality of the guitar playing, while not phenomenal, is much better than the majority of modern hard rock bands.

Paul McCoy is an excellent lyricist, with a great voice to present it. Whether he's singing melodically, or belting out a scream, the vocal quality is pretty darn good in my opinion.

One thing often overlooked in modern hard rock is the bass line, and Kevin Dorr does the job very well.

The drumming is mediocre. Nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done.

My only complaint is the fact that it does get quite repetitive, with pretty much every song being in the same key, being played in the same manner, (clean, picked verses, heavily distorted choruses, ends in guitar solo, followed by a final chorus).

While this album certainly isn't the best of the year, it is quite refreshing to see a Nu-Metal band display some actual talent, as opposed to the typical formula of lots of slow, drop-D power chords.

Overall, I give this album an 8.

Not a bad album, with 2 or 3 excellent songs and as many good ones. The guitar solos are excellent, while melodies are quite good. Unfortunately, the drumming completely lacks creativity, as do the lyrics. Most songs are vague vents of frustration, lacking poetry or wit, carried out by adequate vocals. Though the songs are all written to a similar formula, the intricate guitar parts prevent complete mundanity. A solid hard rock pick.

this is a fairly good cd. sadly, pretty much all the songs are in the same key. the screaming is cool. if you want the 12 stones sound with more variety check out kutless. they rock.

i give it an 8
