Every song is distinguishable from the rest.

Terminal is not my favorite band, but this CD still stands as my favorite album ever.

Again, the simple but effective guitar riffs play great with the vocals.

I doubt if they read this, they would even take much obsession to the word 'genre' or their place within its respective limits - rather simply declaring that they 'do what they do', and whatever that may be, they should really keep doing it.

Every song sticks to the insides of your mind like glue in a very fantastic and enlightening way. I, myself not a fan at all of the usual screamo tunes, sometimes going as far as dismissing them completely of any musical talent, find solace in Terminal.

They aren't trying to be something they are not, and it really pays.

In short: The lyrics very mature especially ascending from such ranks, and the musical talent makes for unsurmountable future success. There isn't at least one song on here that won't leave you coming back.

I dare you to listen to the samples and not be tempted to buy this album.

Terminal's music is unique in almost every sense of the word. The closest I can come to describing their sound would be a more aggressive version of The Afters. Indie pop-infused rock is a fitting genre description, with punk/emo twinged vocals courtesy of Bryant. They stretch their sound out on How the Lonely Keep. Never does the music seem repetitive either. Each track has its own sound, while keeping a general tone alive throughout the forty-three minute running time of the disc.

The lyrics drip with regret and remorse, and the music perfectly compliments that tone. Some songs reek of hopelessness, like "City by the Sea," "I wish I had a little more to miss/ Than friends that don't exist/ In a town that felt like scars across my wrists." Other songs are a wee more optimistic, like "Just a Failure," "This time I'll disappoint the past/ Prove repetition wrong/ I'm just a failure feeling better than I ever have/ If this is life, I'm ready to live/ It feels so good to feel again."

More depressing then the CDs tone, however, is the fact that it's the first and last time we'll hear it. Bryant may remain under the moniker "Terminal," but when you lose all of your musical talent in one fleeting moment, things are bound to change. Here's to hoping that somehow, Travis Bryant is able to conjure up another brilliant effort in the aftermath of the beautiful piece of work known as How the Lonely Keep.

Every once in a while a cd will come along that I can listen to all the way through. I hadn't had one of those in a while until this cd came out. "How The Lonely Keep" is amazing, from beginning to end. "Wisher" is a great opening song for the album, which is full of catchy, somewhat poppy hooks. My favorites are "Dark", "Watching, Wasting, Waiting", "City By The Sea", and "Sunday Parking Lot", not to say that the other songs aren't good. I HIGHLY recommend this cd! This young, talented band is going to go places!!!!

this is one of the few cds where every single song is great. from start to finish, this cd is great emotional rock, emo, whatever you would like to call it. the singer has a great voice and the melodies are different in every song. think copeland and mae, with with more distortion. thats how i see it.

I was 14 years old when I pirated this album in the summer of 2005. I fell in love with it instantly. Most of the music I was listening to was pretty typical, mainstream teenager stuff - Panic!, Fall Out Boy, and My Chemical Romance were three of my favourites. When I heard this though it felt so much more real and meaningful to me than anything else I'd heard before. I know it's pretty cliche to say an album changed your life, but this one definitely did.

Personal feelings aside, though, I think this is a must-listen for anyone who enjoys music and doesn't mind a heavy dose of depression. If mainstream pop music is cotton candy, this is a double-shot of lukewarm gin, consumed alone in a basement, with a healthy 100mg of Xanax dissolved in it for good measure. It hits hard, but musically it is fantastic. The lyrics are great and eminently Myspace/Facebook-quotable, if at times somewhat juvenile sounding (in the best possible way) - but more on that later.
The record starts out quick, with the opening track "Wisher." You get a pretty good idea of where it's going with this track, too.
"I walk faster but it always catches up to me // We talk all night, never saying anything // I am all that's in my way, do you ever feel the same?"
Wisher is poignant, tragic, and hopeful. The guitar riffs are simple enough that you can learn them yourself pretty easily, but they're very catchy, and they play well with Travis Bryant's voice.

"Just a Failure" is the second track, and still one of my favorites. It's hard to remember when you're listening to this that there are only a total of 85 words, because it seems to say a lot more. Again, the simple but effective guitar riffs play great with the vocals.

Well, I saw this band in concert at Cave9 in Birmingham, AL with Hawthorne Heights. Terminal was not headlining, but that shouldn't stop them from achieving top billing very soon. This is possibly one of the great bands of the new millenium, century, etc. and the same goes for this CD. Consistent and well-paced throughout, not a bad note is hit on this CD. Each song is packed with emotion and heart unrivaled on most emo discs. It's a great listen many times through, and I highly recommend picking this one up. Also, attempt to catch them in concert. They're cool guys.
