4 stars Well, It took a long time, but it finally arrived.

I wasn't sure what to expect really, because Seconds Before Landings first and second albums were so different from one another.

What I got, was a pleasant surprise, which is a mix of the best elements of both.

I am not going to go through a song by song review of this album. I will however, mention what I believe are both high spots, and low.

First, the "High" spots. The writing style of Crispino, is getting better with each album. He seems to be maturing, and becoming even more confident. The messages in the lyrics, for the most part are similar to The Great Deception, but you can't help but be convinced, that this guy believe what he sings about.

He is, if nothing else, intense.

The musicianship is stellar. I don't know how he went about putting these group of people together, but he did a fine job. They all seem to believe in what he is doing, and it shows in their performances.

Another thing I like about this album, is he has limited his "guest" appearances to just one musician on one song. In my opinion, it doesn't detract from his group.

As it was with the first two albums, the sound is spectacular.

Now, on to my criticism(s).

First, I wish there was at least one more song on this album. It has 12, but there is an Intro, and what I would consider an Outro as well. 10 full songs in total. One more, would have made it "just right". And lastly, maybe not wait as long to do your next release. I think it tends to slow down the groups momentum, as far as being recognized as a true contender.

If I could, I would give this album a 4.5, but since I can't, and nothing is perfect, I am relegated to giving it just a 4. I really like this album.
