"Target" begins with a shallow sounding, noise intro. Reminiscent of the intro to Fugazi's "Do You Like Me". Then the song explodes into a hard hitting intro riff that gives way to a bass heavy verse. Daryl Taberski's vocals are a pained roar through the verse, and then give way to a strong slicing yell by the chorus. "Bleeding Orange" is a sweet song. The intro has a nice sound with the interesting chord choices of Frank Vicario and Jon Salemi. It's a soft intro, that has no problem breaking into the harder tones of the remainder of the song. "Typecast Module" follows suit with a slower, more deliberate verse. "Twentieth Nervous Breakdown" is a more straight ahead song. Strong powerful guitar, driving bass, and heavy hitting drums. A nice midpoint song. "Ambition Now" rocks! I loved this song. It grabbed me by the head, and forced me to listen. "Box Seat" is the final number, and is a nice swansong for the album. It's got a nice noise intro to the song, and is very eclectic at times. I loved this song. A great way to end an album.
This album showed a great deal of growth as a band for Snapcase. The album goes all over. From hard as fuck hardcore to some slower more deliberate moments. It gives us a good view of the more creative side of hardcore. Where a band can become a force. This album is one of the more creative, moving pieces of music the community has to offer, may you enjoy it completely.I will close with a caption from the album.
