5 stars Song #6 on this album is called "We just stopped breathing". And that's exactly what I did when I listened to this album the first time. The sound on this album is much darker, there are less heavy parts and less electronic parts. Very melodic and atmospheric.

And that's really what are the songs "These Good People", "Broken Glass", "Souvenirs", "Monsters" and "Jelena" all about. Creating a tranquil atmosphere with smooth music and voice. "You Learn About It" is a beautiful ballad. The only regret would maybe be the addition of the rap-like song "A Life All Mine", though it's not that bad.

Rating: 95/100
