The title track from the record conveys all you need to know about Mission Six with a defiant chorus from the band with an average age of just 15, "Not too young to change the world". The song itself also gives a good insight into the band's sound with a tight, pumping rhythm section, atmospheric keys and distorted guitars while lead singer Noah already has a distinctive vocal style. "Stand Out" and "Misfit" talk all about not going along with the crowd and making sure we don't conform with what the world wants of us as we all have a place in Heaven as Christians. "Forever" deals with the staying pure and being committed after saying "I do", but this could be taken to mean in life as a whole. They even throw in a great cover of "I Am Free" by The Newsboys. Unfortunately, the second half of the album is filler as we are offered merely the backing tracks of the initial batch of songs. But this is the only downer on an otherwise good rock record.
