Since no one else submitted a review for this album, I took it upon myself to write one. The first time I heard this band it was the song "Unsung Zero" on the soundtrack for a BMX video. I immediately wanted to hear more. It was just a driving, emotional punk song which is exactly what I am i.

The first time I heard this band it was the song "Unsung Zero" on the soundtrack for a BMX video. I immediately wanted to hear more. It was just a driving, emotional punk song which is exactly what I am into. I picked up this record and was immediately hooked. The album carries a good pace throughout.
This band has been compared to Hot Water Music a lot. It is true that they do sound a lot alike, but I like this better than anything I've heard from HWM. I am a HWM fan but I sometimes find their albums to be somewhat draining. HWM records seem slow paced to me, and I find it hard to listen to a whole album. They just start to lag on for me. Thats why I like this band so much. They play the same emotional music but the pace doesn't let up. It's solid from start to finish.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that this band is like Hot Water Music just faster. And for me faster=better. My favorite tracks are, "Like a Future with No Friend", "Sleeping Weather", and "Unsung Zero".
This is my first ever review so take it easy on me.
