After two years touring behind its self-titled debut, Worth Dying For returns with an even more ambitious dose of experimentation than the first time around. Taking the adrenaline up a notch while bursting through all the worship clichés—all while remaining reverent—makes for an assertive and musically alluring album. Even with the vertical lyrics, the band would easily fit modern rock radio, switching between synth-spiked pop, power ballads and screamo. Harder-edged listeners who wouldn't typically buy a praise project might appreciate this one.
