This is the best album I've bought, hands down.

It's an amazing mixture of introspective songs ... the songs all complement each other without sounding the same (which was the problem with many bands like ... say ... Linkin Park). The songs are all well-written and are musically tight (I'm not sure what it means, but I get this vibe that the songs were meticulously picked and that they don't ramble; they get straight to a point and stick to it).

Of course, I've always been a fan of using the violin in rock songs (kinda like Weekend Excursion) ... but the one thing that stands out about this album is that it's not whiny. A lot of emorock bands tend to just be really whiny (which was part of the Get Up Kids' problem).

Man I don't know what more I can say about this album. Download it and buy it!

It's a little less focused, but the tracks are still pretty good.
