The opening track gets an unwarranted jab from folks for it being in the movie Twilight but whether you love or hate vampires that sparkle; the guitar is wicked insane and the intro is mysteriously seductive. What a way to open an album! Most people are familiar with "Heavy" and the timeless existential coming of age "Run" though lesser known are the renditions of these songs with The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra shown below. The live quality of their music is as impressive as their partnership with the youth from their home state.

The single "Needs" (right) did not garner as much attention as it deserved. It has one of the most awesome male vocals I've heard due to Ed Roland showcasing much vocal control & range. The video is artistic in it's coloring and cinematic concept, though I would question my sanity if I also did not point out how beautiful Ed Roland is with the long hair 90's rocker look. Judge it for yourself!
