In One Ear is a pretty great modern track, it’s memorable and has a strong message to boot. This was the song that got me interested in the band. James Brown has a fairly good chorus, but for most part the song doesn’t do much for me. Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked is honestly the only other ‘great’ song on here. It’s a hell of a track though. Tiny Little Robots is a fairly fun song, kind of catchy. The ending is a bit pretentious for this band though.

Lotus is actually kind of nice, and on the softer side during the chorus. Back Against The Wall is alright, it’s also a touch lighter than the first few songs but isn’t very interesting. Drones In The Valley is also not very compelling. Judas is sort of alright, and the ending is kind of neat. Back Stabbin’ Betty tries to be some kind of mix of their brand of rock and blues, but it falls flat on its face.

Sail To The Sun has one or two cool moments. Free Love actually kind of feels like a classic rock song, but it doesn’t do much for me. This album overall kind of falls on its face, and as much as I hate to say it most of the album feels like filler just meant to support the singles.

Final Rating: 5/10
