Anything is better than In Motion. Even the biggest Aaron Marsh fan will not deny this. Eat, Sleep, Repeat pumps blood into the machine that was damaged by In Motion.
Songs like the title track really get you into the gears of this album and show a definite improvement in Aaron Marsh's vocals. He also seems to have laxed on his pen and become more straightforward in his point. "Control Freak" is simplistically written but Marsh's vocals are so superb, they really bring the song to life in a good way.
So, if you expecting anything like In Motion, let your fears be starved. This is nothing like it. The originality is oozing out this release, which is much darker and a little more mature than In Motion. A definite musical improvement is also quite evident.

This album was my first and only (to date) experience with Copeland. If it wasn't for this site and my winning a contest that earned me this CD, in fact, Copeland would still be unknown to me. I am glad to say I'm glad that isn't the case. The soft, non-abrasive textures and vocal stylings really stand out. As songwriters, they seem to have a knack for melodies that pull on your heartstrings, and appear to have an ear for a catchy chorus. Of course with music of this style, the atmosphere means more than any individual aspect, and "Eat, Sleep, Repeat" creates a sort of cycling, spiraling despair without trying too hard or throwing too much in. They remind me of Radiohead by way of Bright Eyes with a touch of industrial aesthetic and just the slightest amount of a Genesis-esque progressive edge. "Careful Now", "The Last Time He Saw Dorie", and "When You Thought You'd Never Stand Out" really stand out (no pun intended). I'd recommend checking those out before making a purchase of the album; this won't be for everyone.
