3 stars Another melodic record with great vocals, but i've felt that with their last three studio albums something is missing. I know i'm in the minority with these thoughts, but I like their early recordings a lot better. With this album I was impressed with the first track and I thought the lyrics for the second song were clever. The rest is good but not anywhere near great.

"Under Fire" in my opinion is one of their best songs ever. The title of this album is in the chorus. Some wailing guitar 4 minutes in with a ripping solo to end it. "Monday" opens with heavy drums and some great vocals. The lyrics are about living in the real world but dreaming of something better. "Seeds Of Hate" has some heaviness to it especially 3 minutes in followed by some scorching guitar. Another guitar solo starts tastefully before it ends up being on fire.

"Flat Line" has an excellent intro but that's all folks. "Follow The Sun" is not very good in my opinion. It's ok, but the worst yet. That is until the "Ultimate Gift" arrives with lyrics that are full of sugar. "My Everafter" is better. It's heavier with synths. It turns mellow before a minute. The contrast continues. Some nice guitar work after 3 1/2 minutes. Check out the bass a minute later. "Invisible" has some beautiful guitar work on the second half. "Despicable" is a rocker with some fantastic vocals. It cooks before 3 minutes with some blistering guitar.

If you like melodic music with some bite check this band out.
