    Yup, Powerless Rise is pretty damn good. It's their most solid album, not really filler songs or anything. Just pure enjoyment.

    Their music will forever be my solace. I'm so grateful to them for such emotional, sincere and just interesting music. We have to learn not to judge anyone until we won't be under their skin. I will always know Tim as great singer, philosopher, amazing lyrics writer, powerful live performer. All those unpleasant facts, in which he was involved won't cross out for me all the beautiful things he did, they (As I Lay Dying) did!

    Their recent works were terrible anyway. Also, did anyone actually listen to them for the "christian" messages in their music? that's really stupid.
