My first encounter with the girls of the band was seeing them on some really bad music program on TBN, "g-rock" which played Christian rock music, some was pretty good, others were downright awful. I remember one episode was hosted by the halo friendlies, and I frankly thought them to be the biggest dog turd to roll out of scooby doo's butt in a long time. So I was a bit excited to hear a new album by them, to see if hopefully they improved, which it seems that they have.

All in all the album is pretty good, i say pretty good because its not really to my taste, but I'll admit i listened to the album more than I will readily admit. The biggest complaint I have with this album is that the songs pretty much sound very, very similar. Aside from the last track, the music is your typical poppy but sort of punk sound. but more of a throw back to the Go Go's or early Bangles, than to the friendlies blink 182,or Avril Lavigne contemporaries.

The song lyrics are mainly about relationship kind of things, which to me is a big no no, but the vocals are sung with an almost sugary sweetness that makes them digestible, these girls have great voices and they really add something that the songs otherwise would not have, again the vocals, like the music itself is comparable to the Go Go's or the early Bangles.

Honestly I cant say that I like the album, but I also cant say that I don't.
