I love that cd. Seriously, I listen to it a lot. I have two of their old cd's and they are pretty good. But I have to say that this is the best cd so far. I like their old stuff too though. :D

The CD isn't their best, but it is a good CD. I don't know if I like the new sound as much. I liked the sound of Silence and About a Burning Fire better

Dude, blindside is easy one of my favs. I own the great depression, silence and about a burning fire. I voted a 9, theres 2 songs i'm not crazy about, i love the rest. Blindside always rocks, such a great cd. amazing.

I gave it a 7. To me, it didn't have much repeatability (if that makes sense). It wasn't bad, but none of the songs really stood out and made me want to hear them again. [I]Silence[/I] has been my favorite Blindside CD so far.

I must state the awesomeness of the song, "Yamkela". It is death defying.

10 easily but i wasn't too thrilled with the song "Alibi". it flat out made me wanna throw the cd player out the window, but the lyrics are much deeper than there old stuff. if you compare "King of the Closet" to "Fell in Love with the Game", Fell in love with the game wins hands down for songwriting. personally, i think this screamo genre is where Blindside shines strongest. besides, for the fans of the old stuff, you still have the songs, Come to Rest, Yamkela, and We Are to Follow. this is one of the best cd's to come out for years.

Well.. I can't say I like it as much as their other CD's.. but I'll give it a 7 or an 8. I like it alot. GREAT lyrics.. great show.. great songs. Just the sound of it is a bit different.. not as great as the others.

I like it. But it's not my favorite CD ever. The lyrics are okay, but I don't love them either.

It's an easy 10.

I give it a 7.It was alright but nothing to me really stuck out and said great.

yeah, sounds like they just continued from 'about a burning fire'. doesn't feel like they progressed any.

I thought it was better than About a Burning Fire

Thats what killed it for me.

I believe this to be the finest Blindside work aside from [i]A Thought Crushed My Mind[/i].

Where [i]About a Burning Fire[/i] lacks consistency, this has it. Where [i]Silence[/i] lacks energy, this has it. Where [i]Blindside[/i] lacks great songwriting, this has it. All in all, just a great cd to have.

I love the songwriting.. the thing I don't like.. is the overall 'sound' of the CD. The last two were more enjoyable. But heck. I like it.

Some good songs, and overall a good cd. The only other Blindside album i have is A Thought Crushed My Mind, which is quite different.
Some nice chilled out songs, some very good lyrics, but not amazing.

It was better than their last two cds. I liked it more because the whole cd didn't sound the same. That was the problem with silence. A very solid cd, lots of good listening. 10.

I just recently gave this album a few more spins. The more I listen, the more I love it. I can't believe how amazingly awesome it is.

Gotta love "We're All Gonna Die".

Haha, my thoughts exactly. Great song.

i love so many cds and bands and everything, but i have a small list of bands that seem to be the most well done cds. Not necessarily my fav bands, but the cd is so full of great well done stuff

As I Lay Dying - Shadows are Security
In Flames - Come Clarity
Billy Talent - Billy Talent 2
My Chemical Romance - Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
Blindside - The Great Depression

its soo good, like since it was released, i've listened to it ALL the time. I never get tired of it, i mean some songs aren't my favorite. But still, unbelievable, i don't hate any of them
