Songs are well written and the performances are vocally and musically solid. The package is mastered by CKY's Chad Ginsburg and the production reflects the songs strengths.
This album covers a lot of ground, from the straight up rockers like 'Radio' and 'These Are The Times' to the alt pounding of 'All That I Am' and 'Paranormal Of The Abstract'.
'Their Shoes' and 'Me, Myself & I' ride the wave of pop punk.
The track that sums up what Athel is about and what Athel can deliver is 'Kara's Carousel'. It's a song that has universal appeal. With a strong melodic line, unforgettable hook in the chorus, and a rocking guitar riff, you've got something special.
The final result of this album is a superb blend of styles that cover many rock genres but always maintain melodic sensibilities and hooks.
