After releasing their debut album 'Celebrate Mistakes' with Floodgate Records, the guys from California have left that small label and signed with Tooth & Nail for their follow up. Perks from a major label include having producer Aaron Sprinkle who's produced projects for Jeremy Camp, Pedro The Lion and Anberlin, adding expertise and style to the band's release. The album starts off superbly and upbeat with "Pretend" and the rest of the album doesn't fall short of this loud and powerful opening. It peaks at "Fireside Wing" where the breakdown of the guitars and building of the vocals add life and dynamic to the song. However, this becomes the formula for most of the songs throughout the album which makes it good but predictable. The record is full of strong hooks and catchy drum beats, but it falls into the generic end of rock music. There is enough creativity to keep you listening, but not enough originality to be separated from other emo/rock style bands.
