Looks like I get the honors

Possibly the best CD I have ever heard. I love this CD with a fierce passion. I'm not even close to joking.

I bought this cd with some dread, seeing as "so far from home" the debut album of BS2 is so increadable it's one of my favorite cds... but I bought it anyways, popped it into my cd player, and it's hardly left it (only for the other cds I recieved for my b-day) the whole album is amazing, there are more electric guitar parts than the previous cd, which allows for louder stronger songs...
Once again Reese's voice shines, and his lyrics are awesome this time around...

personal fav songs:
The Sun Also Rises
Enamel
Estrella
Heart Still Beats
Daylight
Binary

wow.....


That's pretty much all I can say about this cd. A truly incredible cd. It's sad that it wont get the recognition it deserves. Reese's voice and lyrics are awesome. Some of these songs almost made me cry. Estrella, daylight, heart still beats, and enamel are prolly the most powerful songs. This is definatly not a cd you can pop in for a quick listen. This is the kind of cd that you put in and sit down and listen to it. The songs are awesome, from the lyrics to the melodies to the vocals, it all ties togather to produce one of the best (if not the best) album of the year (or previous years).




(too bad the poll only goes up to ten )

I think this one sounds a lot like Far from home, only much richer and more mature. It is definitely a tremendously great cd. I gave it a 9, I reserve the 10 for only the classics, I would consider an 8 to be worth the money you spent on it (which is high praise nowadays, because of course, you did buy it and didn't steal it off the internet so that Reese can eat food). So a 9 means spectacular. I like every song on it, and I think the first and last songs fit perfectly in their slots.
My favorites are,

1. The Sun also Rises (this song is better than Space Robot 5 and I really liked that one)
2. Binary
3. Daylight
4. Heart Still beats

The rest are all awesome but I especially look forward to those.

It was a great cd, but the fact that they used some words that they did is dissappointing. I thought they had higher standards than that.

Don't buy this CD if you are looking for sugar-coated songs about how wonderful it is to be a Christian. This album contains some of the most truthful, moving songs I have heard about things we all struggle with: death, love, and the plight of the down-and-out. Through all of this BS2 points to the only answer there will ever be: Jesus Christ. I can't wait for the next Brave Saint Saturn CD.

Matt, if you liked the first one, you'll like this one as much, probably more. No Shawow of Def type stuff, though.

I jus got the Light of THings Hoped For cd, and its GREat! my favorite song is Daylight. It's incredible! Brave Saint Saturn's songs are better than the majority of FIF's songs too.

Ehh, I totally disagree with that. They are a totally different style...
