Its quite common for a song to speak to you, but to have the majority of an album speak to you? That's quite rare. If F.E.A.R by Papa Roach doesn't have at least one track that speaks to you on a deeply personal level, one will have to assume you haven't lived at all. This album has something for everyone, and is one of the best albums Immortal Music has ever heard.
This album is one of the most powerful, inspiring, and spectular albums to be released within this decade. Possibly this millineum so far. Every album tells a different story, that all still somehow seem to go together perfectly all at once.
The entire album stands out to us, and various tracks will stand out more than others to certain indiviuals. For Immortal Music, the tracks that stood out the most were, "Skeletons", "Broken As Me" and "Face Everything And Rise." Several lyrics from other tracks stood out as well, as they all are beautifully written and deep. You can tell they came deep from within.
"Face Everything And Rise" is the perfect song to empower someone to keep going, even when they feel like giving up. Its all about taking on the world, rising up to your full potential and then finally coming out on top.
"Broken As Me" sounds a bit like a follow up to their hit, "Scars", as its all about deciding to not give up on someone who has hurt you repeatedly because you see they need someone too. They're just as broken as you are, so you choose not to move on, even though they do not deserve your compassion. Guess compassion is still in his nature.
"Skeletons", however, is almost haunting. Its talking about seeing yourself as broken reflection, just craving some affection but instead of getting it, you just suffer in silence. The chorus speaks volumes about finally just letting someone in and see all of you. "Brick by brick, I built these walls. I shut you own to break the fall. I will shed my sins, I'll show you my skeletons." Putting up walls is a coping mechanism that gets people through a lot of things, and putting it down can be quite terrifying, but sometimes you do have to break down the wall. This song perfectly tells the story of this, and its just amazing.
This album has everything, and something for everyone. You can get this album wherever music is sold and it is highly recommended that you do. You will be missing out on one of the best albums to be released in a very long time.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
