"This second full-length release from Monolithic shows a maturation in the sound and lyrical content while staying true to the musical intensity listeners have come to appreciate from the 'band'.
Always one with emotionally-charged lyrics, the man has outdone himself here with the brilliant, chill-producing ode to 9/11 titled simply 'September'. Truly one of the more outstanding tracks on the disc. Others include House of Joy, Lulling Us To Sleep (the first two singles), In Light of The Dark, Flame, and the album-opener Silent Whisper, as well as an interesting remix (though one I find myself at odds with because while the remix is good, it omits the very powerful and significant chorus of the track, which kind of takes away from the song a bit), of the ever-popular Arms.
The vocals on this second effort once again highlight one of the most talented voices in music today (Mike, why aren't YOU on American Idol???), no matter the genre. This album, on top of the debut 'Power Undiminished', cements Monolithic as one of the forerunners of the new American Synthpop scene, and is a must-have."
Very Very Good

"When I heard the single "Lulling Us to Sleep" which is from this album, it blew me away. It's tough stuff pop and darn worth the money. Then I bought the album. Let me first say this album is very very good. The production values need a little work in my opinion. Some of the songs sound "muddy" and you have to concentrate on picking out the melodies or even vocals on a couple of the tracks. (This is a minor complaint, trust me) I highly recommend this CD. 85% of the tracks on this CD are HUGE gems. I do have one question though? The title of the album is directly from a bible verse that implys LOTS and LOTS of judgement, Yet the notes on the album sleeve and some of the lyrics imply "judge not". Is this a mixed message or what!!
I'm not sure the artist understands the overall message he is sending, esp with the album title.
Regarless of these elements, in which YES I have been rather picky, this IS an Excellent CD, A must have. I just hope to have given people some food for thought!
