Thousand Foot Krutch "The End Is Where We Begin"

Indie rock group Thousand Foot Krutch has injected a shot of energy into their latest release. "The End is Where We Begin" is the band's seventh studio album and their first after going independent earlier this year. Thousand Foot Krutch has knocked it out of the park with this one. Their latest project is an explosive, energetic blend of brilliantly crafted tracks that present a gigantic presence. This album is undoubtably built to be played and heard live and will make for an incredible tour. 

Almost every track is a like a caffeine junkie strung out on energy drinks. No wonder this album has caught the attention of  places like ESPN, there are so many hyped up songs practically made to fit for sports programming. You can expect to hear it overused on a lot of television shows in the near future. 

"Courtesy Call" is by far one of the best songs on the album and definitely one of my favorites. It is preceded by an incredible almost movie like intro. You can almost visualize the live concert for this track... simply amazing. "Let The Sparks Fly" is another notable track equal in intensity and riddled with hefty guitar riffs. 

The only drawback for the album is the lack of diversity. While containing some brilliantly high tempo songs it would've been nice to see it translated to a few of the slower tracks and some acoustic sets. With that said though, this is easily the best Thousand Foot Krutch album to date and without a doubt the best rock album of the year.
