AllMusic Review by

With the exception of the name (which might have come from Daniel or Luke, but probably Acts) and the label, it would be difficult to immediately label Twothirtyeight as a contemporary Christian act, though this has more to do with the earnestness and yearning of the whole emo genre circa the early 2000s than it does a lack of conviction on behalf of the Floridians. The melancholic and down-tuned "Songs Will Write the Words" with its pretty harmony leads a pack of average molten-core melodies that don't stand out nearly as much. The 2002 reissue on Tooth & Nail features two additional tracks, "The Sticks Are Woven in the Spokes" and "Les Wirth," that were recorded with a different rhythm section than the rest of the disc that was originally issued in 2000.
