Blending guitar riffs with rap, these seven urban rock tracks take a poetic look at local social issues. Electrified by Lagnado's solo, "Welcome Home" follows a young man released from prison who finds the world outside more alienating than institutionalization. Crowd-favorite "Box," slated as the first single, is a catchy jazz jingle about the life of a homeless man. "To My Soul" takes a turn into the finger-snapping of Southern blues with a hint of ska, while "Life Goes On" overlays Seventies funk with ominous scaling guitar. "ďLife Goes On' looks at how the world is gonna keep going," relays Oski, "that we are the only ones that are diminishing. The dinosaurs had their time, and now we're having our time." The sense of time running out spurs on the singer in his personal life as well. "When you really look at it, you have about a 60-year time frame to make your mark," he observes. "The inevitable is inevitable."
