Newer fans that have been won over by Rise Against's most recent & more polished releases need not fear, as 'The Unraveling' is a surprisingly accomplished debut that contains all of the band's trademark strengths. The 2005 re-issue polishes things up a little and adds a couple of decent bonus tracks to the mix, but come the end of the day, it is the melody, passion and thought-provoking lyrics which still make this an excellent listen from beginning to end. For more detail, see my review of the original 2001 version of the LP. Recommended Tracks: Everchanging, 1000 Good Intentions, My Life Inside Your Heart & Alive and Well.

Finally the debut of Rise Against gets the kind of production it deserves. Good stuff. The material is the same as on the initial release though, so if you already have this one, it's doubtful it is worth another 10 to 15 bucks. The bonus songs are not really worth it. The songs overall are good though, and show where the band started. Clear progression visible.
