It has been a while. Drowning Pool were dead and buried, the shared thoughts of many after Dave died. But no, they are back, with a new vocalist leading the band to new levels. Jason "Gong" Jones now the lead singer has taken over from Dave, extremely big shoes to step into. Mainly for the fact that not all fans will welcome a new vocalist But in my opinion he did it well. A album that has met expectations of most. Drowning Pool were known for the metal riffs whilst Daves voice was strong and apparent in his melodic style that pleased all metal fans. This album hasn't exactly got a track that will make it as big and well known as Sinner, because it has got a song like "bodies" but who needs that, this album isnt there to make millions in film soundtracks and advertisements. (remembers that step up there first release is also on the Punisher soundtrack).
These album from the begining track tells you what the new drowning pool are all about, back in the spot light angry and loud, "Think" is a amazing track to start the album off with. His voice isnt on the level of Daves, but the good thing is that he isnt trying to be him either. He is a different person and has a different voice and new inputs to the band and the album is blatant proof of that. It is gennerally more heavier than sinner but does have the occosional melodic moment that reminds you of Drowning Pool we originally knew.
So overall, yes the album is good, probably verging on really good. They are still a good band without there old front man. But it depends what your looking for in this album a sound-alike of dave and the same sort of songs, if so then dont buy the album. A new spin to the old Drowning Pool, if so then buy it and be impressed. The choice is yours.
