Style: Modern/alternative Rock; compare to Anberlin, Future of Forestry, Mainstay

Top tracks: "With the Daylight," "Hearts Open," "The Greatest Love"

Lyrically, the group transitions from vague spiritual references to more overtly gospel messages, particularly redemption for the unsaved—and yet avoids being preachy.
