This c.d. has to be hands down one of the top 10 of my favorites. Ever. The angst in the vocals by their singer Jordan Dreyer is simply amazing. This is not screaming and wailing into a microphone. His voice displays the pain and emotion he puts into the lyrics he sings. This band is truly amazing, I suggest them to anyone. Their music takes you on an adventure. Not just any adventure, but one specifically one that tells a tale, and a good one at that. I honestly do not know how to describe their music more then a story that never ends. Their guitar work is very well composed as well as bass and drums. They do not keep the same sound in every song, but they do hint at their flexibility when it comes to songs. Just listen to their music and admire their composition, which is the best I've heard in years. Below is a video for their song for the song "Such Small Hands" which is if not, one of their best songs.
