2 stars The popularity of this band and this album in particular has long mystified me. Maybe it's because I am generally not a fan of Daniel Gildenlow's melodramatic style of both writing and singing, but I am often less wanting to reach my hands through the stereo and choke him so he will shut up. He is just one of those guys who personalities comes shining through in his music way too much. That is not to say that this album is without its moments, which is why I am giving it 2 stars instead of 1. Undertow is a solid song, and Beyond the Pale had good ideas (even if he bludgeoned them with his overbearing personality yet again), but on the flip side, songs like This Heart of Mine are just absolutely putrid. If you are a fan of this band, I can see this being an album you should have, but I would not recommend this CD to anyone I like.
