In fact, since the day of release, I've put it in my car player and it hasn't come out since. I am still not tired of (most) of the songs!
The CD starts off intense with C'Mon, which I consider to be one of their finest songs ever, both lyrically and musically.
The second absolute highlight is when track number five comes up: The Broken.
The triumphant Nothing's Free makes me want to sing along and turn the volume up every single time it comes up, even when I'm in bad moods. Right This Time closes the album off nicely and on a positive note, which seems to become a tradition for the band, as their previous album, the self-titled from 2004, did something similar.
Next to these outstanding songs, most others are just plain good. The up-paced Same Different Drink, Miss You Gone and You Did It, but also the slower songs: She Don't Know, The Wall and Here's To Us. This last one is a tribute to former drummer Allen and it's a beautiful message.
My least favorite song is probably Partner in Crime. The first few weeks I really enjoyed it, but I have to be honest that it gets old pretty soon. A "flaw" that not many Lit songs have had over the years.
Don't look for Lit to give you innovating music with fancy bells. In 2013, Lit does what they've been doing forever: They make honest rock music and play kickass live shows. Here's to hoping they'll never stop!… Expand
