This is a solid album! It is a concept album that refuses to get bogged down by the fact that it is a concept album. Each song matches its title against another song to create a sort of foil effect between tracks- which is pretty cool. This did not detrimentally affect the songs themselves, rather it strengthens them and brings the whole album together better then expected. Although certain tracks work as singles, if you're a fan of those tracks then investing in the album is well worthwhile as it pulls everything together and enhances the entire sound. Where most bands sound washed-up or overproduced after a couple solid albums, Silverstein stays rock solid.
Some personal standouts for me include 'Stand Amid the Roar', 'On Brave Mountains We Conquer', 'One Last Dance', 'Massachusetts', all good songs that are fun to rock out to. Very good guitar riff's with classic Siverstein melodies. Always interested as to what these guys are up to next.
