Decyfer Down's debut CD is a solid and enjoyable effort. Newer fans of the band will be surprised to hear a different vocalist singing the songs, but as somebody who discovered the band during the TJ Harris era, I can't say that either is better, and they don't sound that different at times, so I didn't mind the different voice of their first album.
The album opens with the rocker "Break Free," which is okay, but the following tracks far surpass it. "Life Again," my favorite from the album "Fight Like This," and the slower "Burn Back The Sun."
The album has other great tracks in the form of "No Longer" and "Here To You" which are slower than some other tracks.
"Walking Dead" is another enjoyable rock track. But some of the remaining rock sounds, while not bad, are not nearly as memorable and tend to run together. "I'll Breathe For You," "Never Lost," and "Vanity" just don't carry the same punch as other tracks.
Ultimately, this is a good rock album with many enjoyable tracks but it ultimately fails to make itself truly great.
