Release Date: 2005 | Tracklist

1.All The Rage: This track is a good opening track. It is a mix of good drumming and an awesome guitar riff in the background. In general it sound like an average funeral song would sound like.
Rating: 7/10

2.Streetcar: This song starts out with a phone dialing as the guitar riff builds up from the intro to the verse. This song is brilliant especially the chorus guitar riff. Its better than an average ffaf song.
Rating: 9/10

3.Roses For The Dead: This song starts out with another wicked guitar riff. Then a steady drum beat coming in, and following that comes the vocals. This song is probably just average compared to the others.

4.Hospitality: This song starts out sounding acoustic but still has that electric feeling to it. The drumming starts out just a steady hi-hat tick and then works itself into a more complicated riff. After the intro vocals it becomes heavier with heavier strumming and a more complex drum riff.
Rating: 6/10

5.Drive: Starting out with the starting of a car, the vocals come in almost instantly. this song isn't as heavy as the others and is quite easy listening.
Rating: 7/10

6.Monsters: Probably one of the best tracks on the album, Monsters begins with heavy drumming and following with rapid power chord changes till you reach the versein which the drums slow down a bit.
Rating: 8/10

7.History: This song is pretty slow with nice chord strumming and a very steady drum beat. There is only a little picking in the background. One of the best songs on the album.
Rating: 8/10

8.Recovery: Starting with a wicked-ass rapid guitar riff, Recovery is what a funeral for a friend song should sound like. The chorus riff is just as nice as the intro.

9.The End Of Nothing: This is the best song on the album. Its amazing. The Intro is the best part when the guitar scales downthe fretboard at a moderate speed. I'll say it again, the best song.

10.Alvarez: This song is average. It's not that good and it's not half bad either. It's quite a change in the drumming for Funeral. Its really steady and not complicated.

11.Sonny: This song starts out as though it's going to be a techno song with its drumming. Later in the song it turns out to be more funeral like with some nice vocals.

i heard a few songs off this, and absolutely hated all of them. if you rated streetcar as the second best song, then they've gone downhill fast.

edit - another reason i hate major labels.This Message Edited On 06.24.05
