Right after listening, it sounds like A Hope For Home has put a large amount of effort into getting a message across to the listener. In such a class of music, long song lengths are a plus but only when used sparingly. But on The Everlasting Man, we are treated with a relatively high number of longer songs, all with a progressive structure. Also, it is easy to hear the large influence this band has from Underoath. With twin guitars, twin vocals, and keyboards, Hope's music comes off as almost a carbon copy of Underoath except it does not execute as smoothly. Lyrics consist of overly religious lyrics which may turn off the listener. As a result, we have a young band that is just trying way too hard.
