Hawk Nelson's second album under new lead singer (former guitarist Jon Steingard) shows a continued movement away from the style we've all come to know as punk rock Hawk Nelson. They have however transitioned into a pop/rock sound worth recognizing. The guys are still finding their new sound, but their heart continues to come through in their words.

A few of the songs on the album don't feel like they quite fit, but it seems like it's all a part of finding their sound. The majority of the album is a great start to what they are becoming. A few of the tracks carry some weightier lyrics, but the majority are lighter yet still strong enough to speak to important matters. They guys are proving that they can handle this pop/rock more upbeat sound and still reach the original Hawk Nelson fans.

Overall this album for me isn't just quite there yet. It's a great start towards a new sound for Hawk Nelson, but they have a little more fine tuning ahead. I'm looking forward to their next album in hopes of a pure, polished, new sound.
