An eclectic and diverse mix of both style and content. From the conspiracy driven "No Good Deed" to the stark realities of loneliness apparent on "Isolate", the group displays subtlety and restraint in their approach to songwriting. There are the occasional moments of bombastic expression such as "Pledge" and "Retain", which Maguire describes as "our Freebird moment".

Lyrically, West expands on ideas suggested by the music but leaves plenty of room for the listener to make their own inferences.
