I thought it was about time I bought the album for myself, and I followed the link from the official site to the Amazon page, and I decided to read people's reviews (as I don't know much about the band or the music ) and guess what - 8 out of 8 reviews gave the album 5 stars. I am impressed! I don't know if anyone from here wrote a review, but if they were all strangers then its excellent people think highly of Area 54. I had just written a really long post and then Ultimatemetal said I wasn't logged in and cleared everything I wrote and i'm having trouble remembering what i was rambling on about! Basically I think its time to have a poll about the album, although i can probably guess the outcome already! No Visible Scars is the best album I have ever listened to full stop. There is nothing that compares to it, and I have a father who has over 12 trillion million CDs and vinyls of the best Metal over the past 30 odd years. I've never listened to a single album so many times, it never seems to get boring. I'm so very very glad that they were supporting Blaze at milton keynes, that first time I heard them, they were better than any other support band I've heard ever. Since then I've been to about 6 or so gigs and every time I have been amazed. Not only do they play as good live as they sound on the album, they are the friendliest band I have ever met - equal with Blaze. It's not very often your idols sign a birthday card for you but they did! I have been listening to the 2track demo of living a lie and personal gain quite a lot recently, and they have been growing on me (not literally). They have temporarily filled my need for the second album, along with the amazing "song with lack of name but awesome solo" when they play it live. I think everybody who doesn't own this album should buy it as soon as possible, they are the most refreshing sound to hit the metal genre since i don't know when. I'm forcing people to come and see the band when they play Hitchin because they need to hear how good they are. At the moment they seem to think this weird boy keeps going on about a strange unheard-of band all the time, but I've managed to convert my best friend which is a bonus. Fortunately I have my father to thank for converting me to PROPER metal before I became a garage and rap fan. Unfortunately I have to put up with these people every day at school, it is very satisfying to drown out their voices with the best music in the world. To conclude, should I buy this album? I heard it was pretty average and don't know if i should waste my money.[/sarcasm] On a completely different note, I got an A for my art final piece, so hopefully I'll get an overall B. I worked out that I have been educated over the last 12 years for a measly 27 hours of exams, 10 of which I have already done. Shocking Really.
