Oddly enough, failure is the binding fabric that held the members of recently formed Oh, Sleeper together and kept them from slowly embedding themselves further in defeat. "Everyone in this project refused to continue on with our lives until we've made the difference that we are supposed to make in music." says drummer Ryan Conley. Oh, Sleeper brings a full plate of heavy and dark guitars with thought out lyrics that refuse to shy away from truth. Music is a weapon and these five plan to fully utilize this divine appointment for nothing other than a purpose greater than themselves. Starr explains: "At the end of the day, a song is nothing more than a bunch of notes and chords strategically thrown together. Don't get me wrong, music is awesome but I feel there is something more to this life than writing a hit song and selling records. Anyone can learn how to play an instrument, but what good is it if you only use that talent for self gratification?"

I saw this band live once, and had heard "Vices Like Vipers" once or twice before. To be honest, I wasn't necessarily a big fan, but I didn't dislike Oh, Sleeper either. However, when I stumbled across this album on Ebay at a very good price, I caved in and bought it.
Now I'm hooked. From the first read-through of the lyrics, "Vices Like Vipers" had me pulled into this band. I love their sound, but their lyrics are absolutely amazing all the way through.
