Punk rock has never been my forte, but I do enjoy its charm when combined with a great pop sound.  “By Your Side” jumps out with a cool heavy sound that is accentuated by the drums and bass and soon morphed into a fun track when the guitars join in the fun, along with the vocals.  “Drown” has a heavier pop-rock sound that gives the band a different sound due to the feel of the rhythm section and the chugging riffs that support the vocals.  “It Haunts You Now” reverts to a heavier sound, highlighting the bass lines thumped out by Michelle Rangel and the killer drumming from Aixa Vilar.  “Tartamundo” is a great track that shows the bands diversity and ability to embrace different sounds (and languages).  The lead vocals from Nicolette Vilar shine on this track and reflect a punchier vibe and side of the band.  “Cemetary Stone” opens with great riffs compliments of Betty Cisneros.  The guitar work drives the tempo and feel of the track without taking over the sound and feel at the same time.  Closer “Where I Sleep” has a great attitude woven through the sound of the rhythm section and guitars while the lighter vocals dance across the track, especially during the off-tempo chorus and bridge.
