A Darker Sanctus Real

Sanctus Real took a dark turn with this album, which makes the heart theme of the album art a bit ironic. But the darker turn did some great things for their music.
The album opens up on the intense side with "I'm Not Alright," one of the band's most iconic tracks. The song about acknowledging that we're not alright and that's why we need God should be relevant to every Christian and was a great way to kick off the album.
The album continues on with the melodic "Fly," the radio-hit title track, and the rocking "Don't Give Up" about not giving up on a marriage and into divorce.
Other highlights include the catchy hooked "We're Trying" and the passionate "Where We Belong."
"Benjamin" closes the album out on a somber and quieter note. But it's a good track nonetheless.
Some of the tracks in the album's second half do begin to run together, but all in all, the album is very good and earns a worthy place in Sanctus Real's discography.
