This is just a really fun, easy listen. Loving it.

It's pretty fun and good to listen. I'd definitely include some songs in my Spotify, and listen for entertainment. Probably because the band is new and still seeks directions for their music, I find some songs evoke hard rock while I usually love way more complex and heavier stuff. But it's still good starting point for the new band.

I agree with your assessment, @KaylaMan. I believe the second record improves upon what they started on this one.

What a miserable debut. Apart from Avalanche (a very solid song), the entire album is just so generic and desperate at sounding "modern". Anna Murphy is an amazing singer, but it just stymies me how on this album she sounds like a fangirl cross between Amy Lee (Evanescence) and Eliz Ryd (Amaranthe). Their second album is better.

The Prophet's Song is a Queen cover.
Mad World is a Tears For Fears cover.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.
