a little preachy and self-righteous and shallow. like how many times can you use the word truth and talk about looking at
yourself honestly while getting into zero deep philosophical issues? also the whole 'there is no point' and having to go back
to better days is a little bit pussy. also the 'you are free, no matter what' followed by arguing someone else would have
doomed him if he stayed with them sounds hypocritical. That being said, have loved these dudes from day 1, and this still
has a few solid tracks. Overall, like the production, like the sound for the most part. 2nd half of album lags though. Inner
Authority is a good track. Still recommend it.
But would be great if they stopped worrying about being marketable (and based on his lyrics, the opinions of others) and
just make a raw hardcore record. But idk I guess maybe they never really were that. but frustrating that some of these
hardcore/metalcore bands that you're listening to when you're 18 are actually like 26, and then you grow up another 5
years and they're kind of in the same place... these dudes were the best of the bunch imo though.
