Ok, nothing here is dreadful but a couple of the songs are almost cringe worthy lyrically. Co dependent is straight forward adema, solid nu metal. As is first (only) single and title track unstable. The highlight of the album is Promises. Album closer needles is by far the heaviest track present, intense and angry. Stand up is one of the lyrical offenders, the idea behind the song is okay and musically iit's not bad but some of the lyrics are dreadful "this relationship is whack!" for example. Rip the heart also has some dodgy lines. However get past the first few songs which are pretty standard nu metal, and the band start to show a tender side, some good some nearly great. Then we get to stressin out which isn't bad but suffders from being nu metal by numbers. What the album seems to lack is the passion/vitriol of thier debut. It is a shame as they had so much potential with Mark Chavez on vocals, even though he only did the debut and this with them.
