The songs are really long...

Yeah the songs are really long, especially being a hardcore album. But I think they generally pull it off.
This album is so catchy, emotional, and solid. The songs are long, but they don't waste their time with 2 minute intros or anything, they get to the point without boring you.
There are plenty of gang vocals and opportunities to chant along.
I don't really know what else to say, incredible album. Already one of my favorites, this band could be the new face of Facedown Records.

I [I]highly[/I] recommend this to fans of Dogwood, Comeback Kid, Bane and other hardcore bands with that sound.

I'm so happy with this release.

I settled with a 9 after a little more thought. I'm thinking that they drew out "A Struggle To Stay Standing" too long

Yeah, if there is something wrong with the album, that could be something.

Lights In This Town is one of my favs, but that very beginning melody with the vocals, I swear I've heard that exact tune before. Either way, it's an incredible song.

Unlike a lot of hardcore albums, I don't find this repetative at all.

On "A New Day" and Together, Burning Bright", the backup vocalist sounds so much like some older Set Your Goals. Jordan Brown I think is the vocalist I'm thinking of.

...some on "These Days' too

I love the background vocals a lot, and when the background vocalist screams he sounds a lot like the screamer for Means (older stuff).
I have a feeling these guys could put on a really good show, I hope they do some serious touring with this album.

I'm not a drummer, so I don't know what is really good and what is not, but the drumming seems to be really good. Ventures out of a the typical fast beat snare, I mean they have a lot of that, but he seems to throw a lot of variety in as well.

Why did I say that? If anything, these guys actually have rather long intros compared to a lot of hardcore bands, but they still do it without boring you too much.
