Things have changed noticeably in the time between I Wish We All Could Win and this album. The worshipful lyrics found on that last album have been scaled back in favor of more modern lyrics. That is not to say that this album is bad, it's actually better than their debut. The Afters have a more poppy vibe to them now and their songs now feel more complete in a sense. This slight style change also incorporates some different elements here, from a Beatles-inspired track to a U2-esque opening track to the last track which lyrically is very much like the movie Inception. (In the sense that the lyrics are very open to interpretation.) This album is better than the band's debut. I can't wait to hear what they have in store for us next.
