It may be a bit repetitive and it hardly pushes new ground, but its a very solid collection of hard/alt rock songs with a wonderful vocal performance and is choc full of infectious hooks which make this album one of the best in the genre.
The protege band of Staind actually manages to rise above the pitfalls of their adopted musical genre with interesting melodies and the astoundingly (or even absurdly) powerful vocals of Pete Murray. Lo-Pro prove masters of creating heavish-yet-catchy songs such as "Sunday" and "Reach," the kind that can get stuck in your head for days, even weeks on end.
The album is definitely not without its flaws (structural repetition, weak lyrics, etc.), but it is certainly solid, especially for a debut. One can only wonder how the band will progress from here, with all the potential this album showcases bubbling underneath them.
