6. Pride (What We Live For, 2016)

“A great follow up to their first album. The upbeat sound of the first album is mostly carried forward into their second with the exception of a few introspective pieces. As time moves on the more you listen to this album there is a very good chance that you will enjoy this album and possibly feel that it could be better than their debut from a musical perspective. However, you can be your own judge.”
