I really like Photograph...

To me the mixdown of the CD doesn't have the vocals turned up loud enough...Every time I play this CD I have to turn down the bass and middle so I can hear his voice(and my bass and mids aren't high mynde you)

It wasn't as good as their debut but this CD is still a phenomenal listen. I love the song "Stay." That track alone makes buying this CD worthwhile.

[QUOTE=guitarPERSON;3146785]whats wrong with rebel songs? Jesus was a rebel[/QUOTE]

That is a terribly, un-thought out statement.
Don't let this get off topic.

[QUOTE=IceHawk;1617450]I think the music is much better. The lyrics are alot weaker, with basically no Christian message. I totally disagree with 3 Leaf Loser:

"You don't need direction to find your way, just listen to yourself"

Its not horrible, but its a rebellious song, IMO. Kind of rejecting God. They are an aweome band.[/QUOTE]

12 Stone's softmore release, there was a lot of hype put behind this one, and I'm glad to say it was worth it. Even tho there is nothing too new here, what they do is sounding more mature than before. My fave songs are Far Away, and Photograph, I give it an 8

the lyrics made nosense. i didnt get what most of songs meant. ill give this one a 4. ('stay' is actually an awesome song)

I love the band, but I definitely like their first CD better. Far Away, Stay, and Photograph are great songs, but nothing really stood out to me when I first listened to it. ....7 worthy.

i really like this band. ive followed them sice thier first cd and i was impressed with this one, which i thought was better. i love thier guitar work.

The guitar work is better on this CD. The sound at times reminds me of Nickelback and at other times it reminds me of 3 Doors Down. This CD's sound did not remind me as much of Creed as the last one did. However, I agree that the lyrics are not as good on this CD as they were on the self-titled CD. The lyrics did seem to leave out God a little bit. However, it wasn't bad to the point of throwing it away. It would be cool, however, if they returned to their old lyrics, but kept the sound they have now.

When I first heard this cd the song that stood out to me was Photograph. I like the way they use the acoustic guitar at the beginning then go to the electric. The first 7 songs are good. 3 Leaf Loser was the only song that i hated on this cd. I can't even listen to that song. 12 Stones is my favorite band. This is a good follow up to their debut ablum but not as good. More picking and more guitar solos would be welcomed for their 3rd cd.

well to be honest i was dissapointed with this album, it just didn't live up to what Paul McCoy could do. i mean i bought the first album and it was awsome but when i got there latest record it was pathetic in comparison
but i'd have to aggree with the others: stay was an awsome song :nope:

Posted on 06-17-2005 by audioafan
ya i really like the guitars on this one. good writing and good music. the only thing i can complain about (i know i'm picky)- i don't really like his voice. i know it's just personal opinion, but i like clear voices, like jessy (falling up) or ty burkum (audioa). so no offence to stones, cause that's the only aspect of their music i don't like.

Posted on 08-26-2006 by heisouronlyhope
I give it a 6.

I agree. I like that acoustic they did; it sounded pretty cool. I thought the cd was great. I gave it a 9. :yep:

I disliked this cd. The guitar playing was [I]not[/I] better in this cd then their debut. The solo's were rather weak and unsatisfying. The lyrics on a few songs were OK but not great. A few other songs were simply terrible word-wise. I'd pick 12 Stones (self titled) over Photograph anyday.

Some of these songs made alot of sense . I got the message and I'm only eleven. :brick:

Ok, I personally liked this CD. But it is not as original as the first one. Good but not as good as the first one :-/ It's all in your own opinion though.

Quite an improvement over the self-titled album.

Pros:
Each tune has something in it to set itself apart from the rest of the CD.
The "real" 12 Stones is on the CD. Meaning they spent more time working on it.
Some nice riffage in there.
Drumming is great. First time we really get to hear Aaron, since he wasn't on the first album.
Honest lyrics.

Cons:
Not enough guitar solos.
Wish it had a couple more songs on it.
More screaming would have been nice too.
Oh, and I could have lived without the solo on 3 Leaf Loser.

Other than that. 8.4. Solid follow-up. If they mature as musicians and writers some more, they could get pretty good.

If u like Christian ROCK, this is the c-d, I dont listen to the words, I just LUV the REALLY ROCK music, :yep: I have only heard it at sonshine, so I didn't here the WHOLE songs, only half the songs, but I still think it will be the best c-d on my list this year. :yep:

From what I've heard I think I slightly liked the first cd better. But "Far Away" is just flat out sweet. "Speak your mind" and "Photograph" are also great songs.

This is an awesome CD. Again, no real good lyric stuff, but the music is awesome. I love everysong. The solo's are awesome!!!! VERY VERY AWSOME SOLOS! I love it. It's a very good song. My fave songs are the last 3 songs, great guitar parts. Nice job 12 Stones!
