These guys lost their original drummer a little while back and managed to turn a tragic situation into something meaningful and positive on this record. The music is nice and melodic and has good riffs and hooks. The lyrics are well written and passionate as well as expressful. Something that caught my attention on this record was the use of horns. I thought that was pretty innovative and from what Nick has told me they've really worked on evolving their sound quite a bit and I think they really have taken this band to the next level. Evocative lyrics, great music, definitely an awesome release.
