Re-Review (For @UltimateLifeFrm, who hit 500 followers yesterday)

If I were to ignore the last track…

This album is a unique case where it can be dark and brutal yet fun and happy at the exact same time. The horrific themes in some songs were inspired by the devastating tragedy that was 9/11, and you can hear it in songs like The Devil Is In The Details.
