All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Devoted headbangers the world over welcomed the arrival of CCM nu-metal groups like Thousand Foot Krutch with open arms. With the crunch but without the sludge, the trio of Trevor McNevan vocals/guitar, Joel Bruyere bass, and Steve Augustine drums pack condensed enlightenment into the thrashing song form of the 21st century. As suspected, the spiritual substance is diluted somewhat to fit the pounding rhythms. Most tracks are short and sweet, revealing a punk/ska influence rather than clock-hogging metal.

In this age of iPods and single-song downloads, it's an extra treat to find an album without fillers. There are no weak tracks here, just a healthy mix of tempos for the true hardcore metalhead. Aaron Sprinkle's production reveals a clean rhythm section with the hip-hop punch of Maroon 5. "Last Words" features one of the few variations on the band's sound, held together by a groovy bass riff. The sole ballad, "This Is a Call," is a pure radio-friendly concoction of sympathy and vulnerability.

    An Awesome Metal Album!

    This album is a must have for any metalhead. It is probably Thousand Foot Krutch's best album. Faith, Love And Happiness is probably the best song. It has quality and a great sound. Phenomenon, Rawkfist, Last Words, Bounce and Step to Me are some really jammin' songs. The others are a bit slower but are still really good songs. It is a clean album so I would redommend this album to anyone.

    Hard Core

    This cd is a must have, seriously great music and great lyrics. If you like to get pumped up, this is the cd for you, great for working out too. Preview the songs and see how great they are, right now "Rawkfist" is my favorite song, its so hard.
