Like many bands that hit their pinnacle in the early 2000s pop-punk craze, the Starting Line has been searching the last few years for a more mature sound to somehow garner the success of today’s more “emotionally equipped” acts. While 2005’s Based on a True Story headed up such an effort, lines like "I’m gonna tear your ass up like we just got married and you’re all mine now" made the process much more difficult than it should have been. So consider Direction a success that the Starting Line manage to sound more grown-up musically and less immature this time around.
