3 stars 3.5 stars. This band can really write meaningful songs about every day life. This record is toned down a lot from their previous release "Break".

"Paint The Picture" is a melodic song that sounds great with some terrific bass lines and lots of keys, guitar and drums. "Rough Draft" opens with some fairly heavy riffs, followed by an almost reggae beat. This is a feel good song. "What To Say" features heart rending lyrics about the thoughts of a man who is in a hospital and can't speak or move, and is going to die soon. Incredibly emotional song. "Bite My Tongue" is an uptempo song that doesn't do a lot for me. "Colors Fade" opens with classical guitar, and I really like it when the guitar and bass comes in.

"Juggling Knives" is a song about stretching yourself too thin. The title of this record is a line in this song. There are lots of keys in this one and the guitar melody towards the end is fabulous. "Black Eyes And Broken Glass" is a sombre song about abuse, great tune. "Elyse" is about Ted's baby daughter. The guitar solo to open and throughout are really good. "Shell Of A Man" is about alzheimers disease and is the first song they ever did with a lead bass. "Broken Wave" is my favourite song on this record. Probably because it's about a woman walking on the beach, looking at the water and just thinking about life. This is a hauntingly beautiful song. "Traces" is a catchy song with a great ending. "Know That" is really the conclusion of "What to Say" only it's acoustic .

Overall I would say this record is a good listen, with the lyrics being the highlight here.
