More of the same blistering Southern rock from the Virginia gentlemen doesn't give listeners any surprises. But fans who were won over with Decemberadio's return to classic rock riffing probably didn't complain that Satisfied is barely a stone's throw away from the band's self-titled debut. After all, it was that debut that won the band a surprisingly large following and critical acclaim (a Dove award and even a Grammy nod). As a whole, the parts add up in much the same way this go-around. There are few, if any, inconsistencies or weak spots on the entire record, a credit to the band's dedicated craft. Where this release falls short is in the lack of a strong single. Without the presence of another "Drifter," the album drifts slightly into autopilot towards the latter half. However, it still offers plenty of timeless riffs and favorable gospel messages without the cookie-cutter emo rock sound that was blanketing CCM radio.

Decemberadio takes the sound of their first album and expands it with this solid follow-up. Another album full of solid hooks, musicianship, and lyrics that can really relate to what you are going through. Definate library material.
