"I have a somewhat torn taste in music as I loved the fast pace and distortion of punk in my earlier years and now tend to lean toward more melodic and instrumentally diverse music. I've always had a guilty love for epic build-ups in songs as well. I'd heard a description of BSP's sound while reading a magazine review one day and made note to check them out. When I eventually got around to it, I was instantly rewarded with my favorite album in years. I've listened to their other releases as well and there is no denying they are having visions of grandeur on this one. That may defy the taste of some older fans, but I personally love it. It's the perfect combination of punky distored rock coupled with the emotion and creativity of many revered indie bands. It's smart and fun at the same time. It can go from invoking dark emotion one minute to making you want to hop around and dance another. I hear their lives shows are even more grand if that's possible. Favorite tracks - Lights Out for Darker Skies, Waving Flags, No Lucifer, Down on the Ground, Atom. I guess you can tell I'm a sucker for the faster paced ones but they are all seriously great sans the odd instrumental in the late-middle. Thank you for making this record, BSP!"
