The third album from the Barlow sisters sees the girls maturing as writers and evolving their sound. Opener "Song For The Broken" could almost be Evanescence, with it's lush string arrangement. "Million Voices" has a harder edge, but is augmented beautifully by a choir and is the standout track. Unfortunately, this standard is not maintained for the whole album. "One More Round" really doesn't work for me, however you cannot fault the message of the lyrics of how, as Christians, we have to keep on fighting back against the things that would destroy us. Otto Price provides a typically slick production, and the girls provide thoughtful, God-focused lyrics. The DVD content with this release focuses on the girls in the studio, talking about how they work, their relationships and giving some meaning behind the songs. Music videos are also provided for "Never Alone" and "I Need You To Love Me", two of their biggest hits. Well filmed and produced, the DVD provides an interesting snapshot of BarlowGirl's world. The girls maintain an uncompromising faith and a pure lifestyle, and this release should ensure that they can display this example to a wider audience.

I absolutly adore "One More Round" - it's one of the best songs on the album, along with "Keep Quiet" and "Sweet Revenge"
