Honestly, it's hard to tell if this was better than their debut or not. Both records have some good tracks on them, but in total lack the potential it could have. My Darkest Days is a great band with one of my favorite vocalists Matt Walst, and some guitars that are very capable as we've seen at times, meaning they have great potential. However, certain tracks like "Casual Sex" hold them back as they're very cliche and too made for radio if you know what I mean. In one word generic. On the other hand, songs such as "Sick and Twisted Affair" and "Perfect" are very catchy and have me walking around the house singing the chorus. All in all, Sick and Twisted Affair is a good mainstream rock album, but I really hope MDD's next release is a complete one that showcases all of their talent and features no cliche generic tracks.
