Still rockin but loses little edge
Posted August 21, 2009
By trentman629,


From what I have heard on the nrt preview Awake is awesome. Not much I can say that hasn't been said in other reviews.

For me the Comatose vibe works well on the follow-up. However, I do think Comatose is a hard album to try and top and this album falls short just a little.

The first half of the project is rockin. Lyrics, vocals, beat, everything worked well. Also love the addition of jen and her vocals. The ballads are amazing and love the opening tracks.

Only issue i have is the 2nd half I find some (not all) of the songs tend to blend together. Don't think it is as solid as the first half. Don't care for It's Not Me It's You, Should've When You Could've, and Sometime. Lyrics aren't to shabby but didn't do much for me listening to them.

Overall this is a solid project, but I wish it had more heavier songs. Seems like there are more slower/med tempo songs but only a few upbeat pure rock. Hero, Monster, and Awake are the main 3 I can think of. As mentioned earlier I love the slower songs and each song has great lyrics. I have found the more I listen to it the more it grows on me...where comatose listened to once and I loved the whole project from the get go.

I am still a fan and think this is a worthy cd of theirs. Not disapponited but wanted a little more upbeat rock songs on the album. Best cd that has been out this year in quite sometime...summer was very blah and nice to get some new rock music going again.
