At last your thread has been approved,anyway I like the newest album that Shallow bay made,but sadly it breaks my heart that Ben got fussed over a song,I mean I can see why but take it out on firing some good old friends?,anyway Lie to me sound pretty good,though I love breath and better days on the album.
