(This is my first review, go easy on it plz)

1. Deliver Us- 1:43
This is a good intro to the cd. Haha, this is all i really have to say about this song. It's kinda short though, even though its an intro. 3/5

2. Filthy Insane- 3:08
This song starts with the drums, followed by guitar, and then bass. IMO, i like this song. The only flaw is that the song is really a repitition of, "This is filthy, this is filthy insane." (well, i have the clean version. it would be, "this is filthy, this is f***ing insane.") Other than that, awesome song. 4/5

3. Here I Am- 2:47
This is my favorite song on this cd. This is on Tony Hawk's Underground 2. This is probably like the only song on this cd without much repitition of the words. 5/5

4. I Know- 3:34
Another repitition song. I think these are enjoyable songs, but i know all the words for the wrong reason. Whichever band member is the lyricist, they need to do better. 3/5

5. We All Fall Down- 2:58
Ah, another good one. YES! I like the little guitar thing at the beginning and during the chorus. I like the lyrics at the beginning, "Get up, get out of my life, just leave me alone. I wish i could take your money and burn it down with your home." 4.5/5

6. Mothers Cry- 3:14
This song never seems to please me. I dont know why. So, i have nothing to say. At least theres no repitition of any words. 2.5/5

7. Atrocity- 3:20
I like this song. This is another enjoyable song, except for the repitition. i'm gonna keep saying that, so for you people reading this, don't be like, blahblahblah you said that too much or w/e. The guitaring is fantastic. Good song. 4/5

8. Go Blank- 3:21
OMG! The lyricist's head must have been going blank because all they're saying is, "Go blank, go blank, go blank, go blank!" This sounds very much like Atrocity. Theres the guitar solo in the middle, and then they play the chorus one last time with the same stuff as in the guitar solo. the only thing i like about the song are the drums. Ha, i dunno why. 2/5

9. No Revolution- 2:46
This song is off an older cd "Flash, Flash, Flash" I dont like this song. I like it off of Flash flash flash. You can find the other version on Tony Hawk's Underground. Not #2. 2.5/5

10. Heavyweight- 3:24
This is another song i like. I like the little intro that leads into the song. This song, does not have much repitition, so thats a plus. 4/5

11. Grace- 3:41
This is another song that doesnt seem to please me. I still dont know why. I like the intro to the song, but the body of the song seems just bleh to me. 3/5

12. Hollywood Sign- 3:06
I love this song. I love the drum solo at the beginning. It's nice. Ha, i've tried to do that, its hard. I love the whole song. And i like the bridge part. It's nice. 5/5

In conclusion, this is a good cd.

Songs to listen to:
Filthy Insane
Here I Am
Atrocity
Hollywood Sign

Good review for a first. A little more info on the songs would be nice, and so would the band members and a little band history. You commented a few times on my ALK3 Crimson review. You can use it as a guide if you like. :thumb:

Everyone here in Boston hated/hates the explosion when they still played local shows. And now everyone here hates em a lot more because they're "sell outs" since they were on Tony Hawk and warped tour. =

These guys have some pretty good stuff. Some of these songs are really good, fast-paced punk songs, but others are just boring. Pretty good CD.

Very good solid album. The review seems kind of biased though. But it's still decent.
