Let It Enfold You is an interesting record, especially for the screamo genre. They only have one guitarist which is really cool, because this album is REALLY good in the guitar aspect, start to finish. Musically this album is fantastic, with pretty solid basslines and some nice, fast drums. Lyrically the album exceeded my expectations, especially on Buried In A Lie. Another reviewer said that they drop the F-Bomb quite frequently, which is an inaccurate thing to say, especially if you have two things to say about a cd, both being negative.
The only complaint I have about LIEY is that after awhile the songs sort of mesh together and it's hard to differencate between them. Standout tracks include Buried In A Lie, NJ Falls Into The Atlantic, Choke On This and Martini Kiss.
For fans of the screamo genre plus some more advanced guitar lines, definately check out Senses Fail, especially fans of Underoath, Saves The Day, and maybe Silverstein.
This CD caught me by surprise. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it sure wasn't metal. The twin Gibson attack, frenetic drumming and thrashy bass are all very tight. If you put a different lead singer in, you'd end up with...well, a metal band. But their singer, "Buddy", is very '80s influenced. He sounds like so many of the lead-singers of punk bands I've heard. But he can also do nu-metal-type screams, grunts & growls. I don't see how he can thrash his voice like this & still manage to sound coherent when he's actually singing, but the overall effect is killer.
And speaking of killer...those lyrics! Digging up your ex-girlfriend's grave and performing an autopsy? Love me with a chainsaw? You love my bloody kiss? Cannibal Corpse it ain't, thank God, but the lyrics depict a very unbalanced individual at the helm of Senses Fail. The overall effect is blood, flesh-wounds, alcohol poisoning, pyromania, and tribal noise.
The songs on this CD stick in your brain, for better or worse. Overall verdict: I Like It! It ain't the absolute greatest album I've heard, but it's a very solid 4 stars in my book. These guys are young, and as good as this CD is, I've got a feeling their best work is ahead of them.
Lady In A Blue Dress 5/5...love the rhythm and the lyrics.
Your'e Cute When You Scream 4/5...cool guitar riff,faster harder song.
Buried A Lie 3.5/5... The Single for the cd
Bite To Break Skin 5/5 .. amazing..
Rum Is For Drinkin', Not For Burnin' 4/5
Slow Dance 2/5....if they would have left the screaming in at the bridge, it would have made the song alot better. But without it.. the song is boring.
Choke On This 5/5..Sweet Lyrics.
NJ Falls into The Atlantic 4.5/5.. Catchy Song
Let It Enfold You 5/5 .. awesome bridge and lyrics.
Irony Of Dying On Your'e Birthday 5/5...intense song. Love Buddy's screaming at the start.
Angela Baker And My Obsession with Fire 4/5
Martini Kiss 5/5 really cool beat,very catchy chorus, and amazing bridge, Buddy's voice is amazing at the end.
Overall a great cd...

Senses Fail's debut full-length is a solid effort. The band seems to sink further away from screaming and more into pop-punk emo but it's not necesarrely a bad thing. Standout tracks include "Lady In A Blue Dress," "Buried A Lie," and "Angela Baker and My Obsession With Fire."
Overall rating: 8.1 out of 10.
