Posted on 11-06-2004 by SkeeterPunk rock is a dying breed. Fortunately there's still Dogwood around to keep the faith. There is absolutely zero pop in this punk.
The songwriting on this album is superb. Josh Kemble does not shy from complex ideas and big words in this wonderful brand of punk rock. The album starts off with the fantastic line "This union with divine creation is a brilliant coronet" letting you know right from the beginning that you're in for something a little different from most punk bands.
The high quality lyrics continue throughout, speaking of the fallen nature of mankind, the love of God, freedom, and the trials of faith. My favorite song from the album is "Absolution" which speaks powerfully of forgiveness and freedom: "Don't let the fact that you've been weak before control you from inside."
This album deserves to be in the collection of every punk fan out there. It gets a well-deserved 9 from me.
