"This CD is so amazing. It shows the soft and alot more of the heavier side of FFAF. Bend your arms to look like wings has such a awesome beat and is so meaningful. Every song on this CD kicks a** and is the best album ever
Great art work visually and Emotionally!

"In the early 2000's, the music scene in America started to change slowly, as it always does. Gradually slipping into the underground and mainstream was a group of bands that combined punk, emo, hardcore, and seemingly everything in between to define a unique sound. Who knew one of the bands in America with a rising star would be a band NOT from America. Leave it to the guys in Funeral For a Friend (named after an Elton John song) to come in from Wales and show the American music scene a thing or two. After releasing a string of highly sought after EP's in their homeland, Ferret Records snatched them up in America to release a culmination of their previous work titled Seven Ways To Scream Your Name. That same year, Funeral For a Friend released what would ultimately be a collection mainly comprised of re-recorded tracks from those old EP's, Casually Dressed and Deep In Conversation. Make no mistake, roughly 8 of the tracks on this album appeared elsewhere first, but they shine together. With tracks like "Red Is the New Black," "Juneau," and "Escape Artists Never Die" in the fray, this album was years above and beyond almost everything in America. To this day, four years later, this album sticks out amongst nearly anything even released now. Brutal and heavy, beautiful and melodic, this album has everything, and just enough of all of it."
