    This was very sad. Didn't really enjoy it, but his voice reveals pretty much everything he's gone through lately. Boy Brushed Red was the quick and early highlight.

    I'm completely oblivious to what he's gone through, what happened? Didn't know this was just older songs.

    Pretty sure he and his wife got divorced in the middle of the Underoath Rebirth tour. The covers he chose for this album definitely recreate that feel, too.

    I'm curious about this.

    Giving it my first listen now....kind of like a journey through time with UO, U2, The Almost covers.

    we've seen the shadow of the axe before Prestigious

    I can think of maybe two songs I've enjoyed from any of his side projects. This may even be the worse.

    I really enjoyed the first two Almost albums, was lukewarm on the third.
    Didn't even make it through this unfortunately.

    I really do love those 3 Almost records. Always really liked Aaron, maybe due to the fact that I met him in Florida a while ago and just talked with him for a couple hours about music and christianity and all that. it was really nice. i just like what The Almost does, solid, sturdy pop rock.

    This not so much unfortunately.

    I do not exist.

    I had a listen to this yesterday. I didn't enjoy the A Boy Brushed Red Underoath cover which surprised me. But I liked the tone for the rest of the album. It's an interesting listen - I can't decide if I really like the vocals here or if I find them too much. Ha.

    surprised how negative everything here is on this. He tried some new stuff thought the underoath songs came out well

    I actually like most of the songs on the album, especially the U0 ones.

    I kind of like this album. It's not my favorite Aaron release, but it's not bad.
