Good Variety, Mediocre Lyrics
After listening to The Battle for Everything, I felt that the variety of different sounds stood out to me, but the lyrics did not leave a profound impact on me. The lyrics have a very self-centered feel, revolving around the singer more than anything. They range from not being a problem (see "Dying") to being the main focus of the song (see "If God Made You", "Disneyland", "Nobody", "NYC Weather Report", etc.). Going back to the sounds, they possess a consistent quality with the best going to "Dying" (Honorable Mentions are "Nobody", "If God Made You", "Maybe I", and "The Devil in the Wishing Well"). The sounds of this album ultimately make this a 3/5 instead of a 2/5.
