It's just very, very good on so many levels. Everything about it just seems extremely well executed, everything from lyrics to music, from musicianship to production. In fact, a review for this album would fit on any kind of music site, not only on a punk site - because this is music I believe anyone could appreciate. The album kicks off with a fast number, called "Glory" and, when the album leaked on the internet, this was also believed to be the title of the album itself.
The track starts with the sound of a helicopter passing by, which leads into a guitar riff and the songs kicks off. It's melodic, softcore punk about the atrocities of war, and they even incorporate a boy's choir in a break-down in the song. This song leads into a sweet punk ballad in swing tempo, called "Lullaby" - a down-tempo piece that in parts display lead singer Ted Bond's awesome voice, as he reached notes most of us mortal singers only dream of.
I won't bore you with an explanation of every song, but some songs must be mentioned, if nothing else then just for the sake of them being so damn good! It's an excellently composed song about the hypocrisy of organized religion - since the band was on Tooth and Nail, you know they supposedly were a "Christian band", although they themselves on multiple occasions has explained they're not, because they don't want to use God to sell records, nor limit themselves to a Christian audience - and that's good because if they wanted that, I wouldn't listen to them.
It's a rather speedy number, with awesome vocals and innovative guitar-work. Both "Masonic" and "Prince of America" were in whole or in part written by Dan McLintock, nowadays in the great band Inspection 12, and they're both awesome songs. I try to, in every review, include the downsides of the albums I review. But I can't really come up with any negative critizism for this one. Maybe it's a little short - I would've liked more than 10 songs.
Maybe it's not something the most hardcore punks would like. But none of those things take away any of the magic from this truly outstanding album.
I warmly reccomend this to anyone, I think it's amazing and I stand by that. Rank: 0 for Tweet Recent reviews by this author. To truly make "Prince of America" work, the drums needed a " Wipeout " feel, and Heath nails it perfectly. Lost at Sea: There's nothing worse than a three-minute closing track that doesn't sound any different from all the other songs on the album.
Actually, as the lyrics from the previous song laid out, there are a lot of things worse than that. Still, it's pretty irritating, and thankfully Lost at Sea doesn't go that route.
In fact, with all of the previous songs sounding so differently from each other, how could it? It reflects on the relationships the album has already discussed. Someone is lost, confused, and isolated, and someone else is calling out to and searching for them, but from where they are, the lost person cannot hear the calls.

Nothing was wrong and the future Looked better than it ever looked before So I thought that the trouble was gone It felt as if a bond had been restored It's over, he plead the fifth too long Deserving to walk the plank and fall No longer blind, the light hurts his eyes In hopes that time will help anesthetize In all the hurt, the shame, that's eating him alive He's praying more than friendship will survive Okay, so far I'm not impressed When does it get good and how much time is left?
No way, she can't end up with him Did the hero die, don't the good guys win? Don't the good guys win, don't they win? Don't they win in the end? No longer bound, it's freedom he defies In shock 'cause I've been hit between the eyes I guess it's fair, I made the bed where I will lie There's got to be some way now I'm sure he'll find some way now The pain of losing you should fade in time.
