Musical Style

The album is more of a heavier free spirit sound than the debut. The band was still experimenting with sounds and texture trying to add pop punk elements as well as R & B and Hip Hop. All Music was written by Mike, Archie, and Keith. Some contributions by Peyton, Peyton and Holly experimented with combining their vocal performances.

Recording

The album was recorded in fall of 2005 for a 2006 release. There were left over demos from the debut that they started with and then wrote new material once in the studio, The album was once again self-financed. Freddy Spencer who was now also part of the live band did double duties helping produce and mix the album. The band was overall happy with the sound of the record but were not happy with the content. Archie has said numerous times that he wished they had cut about 7 or 8 of the tracks from final product. " That album represents a bad time in the history of this band, we were going through so much turmoil not sure which direction or identity we were." Archie states. " Holly and my relationship were on their last legs, we were all indulging on way too many chemicals at that time it's a very disjointed record." " We needed to trim that album down to about 8 songs total" The album was re-released in 2020.
