First, let me start off saying i'm a big fan of All The Right Reasons and Dark Horse. So only really take my review you feel the same otherwise you probably won't agree.
Overall, it's good album, but not as good as those listed above, HOWEVER, there are some stunners in the album. Here's a blow by blow account of the album, starting with the BEST (number 1) to what i consider the worst of the album (number 10).
1. Trying Not To Love You
What a an unbelievable ballad, the chorus is goosebumping, teary eyed, powerful. One of the best ballads they have ever written.
This is a very close second, almost tied with first, another credible ballad.
3. Don't Let it End
An awesome ballady, happy song, more uptempo with an absolutely great ending, check it out.
4. When We Stand Together
You probably know this song already, nice happy little rocksong.
5. Everything I wanna Do
Good upbeat rock
6. Gotta Get Me Some
Nice chunchy rock song, awesome for headbanging.
7. This Means War
The opening track of the album, could have been a better opener, but this is a good song.
8. Bottoms Up
This is a heavy rock song, but just gets a bit boring after a while, it has a great guitar solo tho.
9. Midnight Queen
Hectic rock song, good but not like something in your mouth or anything.
10. Holding Onto Heaven
The melody on this song just didn't do anything for me
11. Kiss It Goodbye
I wish they kissed this song goodbye.
Overall, highs and lows, still worth buying. Chad does much more guitar solos in this album which is cool.
But yeah, as other reviews have said, don't expect anything different.
