This is the best CD Ive bought in years. It's so good I bought 3 more copies and gave them to my friends. The music is mindblowing, the lyrics are understandable and have meaning. Highly recommended album for anyone who likes great music. These guys are also amazing to watch/hear live as well.

I have to say, I was honestly expecting something better from Faktion's debut...

Now, don't get me wrong. Faktion are a good band, really talented with a good sound. Taking various contemporary styles from other bands (I hear a bit of Hoobastank, Lostprophets and Finch) and mixing it with an "anything goes" musical attitude that smells of 80's arena-rock, Faktion is something quite outside the norm. Despite the fact that the Hoobastankish single "Letting You Go" sounds a bit pandering, you'd be hard pressed to find any pure plagerism on this album, which in itself is an accomplishment these days.

Faktion's self-titled debut was produced by Dark New Day frontman Brett Hestla, and as a frontman, he seems to have focused most of his energy on frontman Ryan Gibbs. Throughout the disc, the band sounds merely secondary, sometimes nearly lost in the mix (forget about even hearing any bass). And quite a shame that is, as the band (especially guitarists Marshal Dutton and Josh Franklin) show true proficiency. At times, the music is veering off in an unexpected direction, and yet it doesn't take control of the speakers quite like it should. I think this is just a simple case of poor mixing, but who knows. All I know is that this seriously drags down what could be a great listen.

As for the actual songs, most of these can be hit singles if they really wanted it. I mean, for such a young band to put out songs these good and radio-ready and still make them interesting, is quite an accomplishment. Despite the shortcomings that I chose to dwell on throughout this review, I think Faktion have a bright future ahead of them. Any fan of modern alternative can appreciate this disc, and at a cheap asking price just about everywhere, it's surely worth picking up.

The long awaited, self titled debut album from Faktion is one album you'll want to make sure is in your music collection. The album showcases 5 individual talent's whom have molded into one tight fitting band featuring: Ryan Gibbs (Lead Vocals), Marshal Dutton (Guitar/Vocals), Josh Franklin (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Jeremy "Brink" Coan (Bass/Backing Vocals) and Jeremy Moore (Drums/Backing Vocals). The true meaning behind Faktion stands for "family" and in a sense so does their self titled album. It is one that can be shared and enjoyed by all music genres, young and old!

The opening song "Forgive Me" is one of many hard-driven, pulsating, rhythmic songs on the album as well as "Answers" and their first single "Take It All Away". Each one of these songs has a strong backbone represented by the mesmerizing sound of the melodic bass guitar and the substantial, meteoric and hard hitting drumming. Not to get carried away with the hard stuff, Faktion will then bring it down a notch with the soothing combination of rhythm dual guitar playing along with the eloquent lead vocals in songs such as, "Distance", "Pilot" and "Six O' Clock" just to name a few.

This is a well produced album, one in which the members of Faktion should be proud of in the end. Faktion has a wide range of fans that are 100% supportative, loyal and dedicated in helping them fulfill their dreams. This album showcases that dedication, sacrifice and determination the band put into making the best album for their fans!

I recommend you stop reading this review and go buy this album, because once you start listening you won't be able to stop and you'll be "Always Wanting More". Faktion is on tour now with Hinder and Theory Of A Deadman, you can check out their tour dates aby going to www.faktionband.

Faktion `Faktion'

Release Date: 21 March 2006

From several small towns in Texas comes an amazing new band with a surprisingly polished sound. Faktion doesn't play like your typical newcomer. Their confidence and charisma step to the front and force you to take another look. That look affords you a listen and the rest is five-star history.

When I say every song on this album rocks, I mean it. The bottom of the track listing should not be intentionally skipped or you'll miss gems like "Always Wanting More", "Who Am I", and "Better Today". These are probably three of the best songs on the entire album and it's why I mention them first. That's not to take anything away from the ever popular single, "Take It All Away" or "Answers", who's heavy and quickly hooking sounds will likely define this band to most. Diversity couldn't be better displayed on this album. Beautiful ballad style vocals on tracks like, "Letting You Go" and "Six O'clock" are very well done and show the versatility of singer, Ryan Gibbs, though the only true ballad is "Distance". "Pilot" is a song very much in the mold of Incubus or Hoobastank and proves the band's ability to do more than just simply rock out. This should hasten their already inevitable success.

I am very impressed with the band individually, as well. The ninety second lick-laden intro to "Maybe" brings back memories of good old fashioned rock, and the same fret board prowess is consistently displayed throughout the song, and album. Gibbs' vocals show no signs of struggle, either. They're powerful and distinctive enough to recognize even the first time you hear the band's new single being spun on the radio in the future.
