"Steady, As She Goes" is such a great track that it's hard not to set one's expectations high for the rest of the album. Unfortunately, none of the other tracks manage to capture or reflect the sound or energy of that first track. With that being said, even it wasn't the first track, it's the most known to me and would lead my expectations going into the album.

Overall Rating: 4.0/5
Favorite Song: "Steady, As She Goes"
