Product Description


It may have been a bit overzealous of SOiL to call their third album Redefine, because there's no radical change of direction here. The rock is still heavy, and still hugely influenced by the American post-grunge scene (and, especially, Alice in Chains). But, to their credit, rather than a complete redefinition, Redefine does successfully re-position SOiL ahead of their peers. While bands such as Staind and Puddle of Mudd continue to retread sub-Pearl Jam grunge-lite, SOiL aren't afraid to rock--even when they try for a radio-friendly ballad ("Remember"), they amp it up and thrash out. And while Ryan McCombs' vocals do owe a massive debt to the aforementioned Alice in Chains, there's also wider evidence of rock's past and present here ("Cross My Heart" hints at early Metallica, while grooving like Korn). Album opener "Pride", meanwhile, is as anthemic and mosh-ready as Drowning Pool's "Bodies". This is not so much Redefine as recycle, but at least SOiL have chosen their sources wisely. --Robert Burrow

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Scars 27 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Scars was a hugely popular work of art, but this, to me, is even better. Slightly more melodic, but just as heavy - PERFECTION. And by the way, I was able to convert the tracks into MP3s using Roxio Easy CD Creator, I had no problems at all.

Without a doubt, Redefine is one of the greatest rock albums of the last few years, and probably the best 'nu-metal' album ever recorded. Seriously, that's not an exaggeration.
Whereas bands such as Saliva (with the exception of the excellent Every Six Seconds - the only metal album that comes close to this one in terms of quality, in my opinion) have tried and failed miserably at humble, emotional nu-core, Soil continue to defy the rules of Metal by actually finding MORE things to write songs about AND writing better songs than their preceding ones. This has never happened before in metal music because a lot of the time the bands are happy just to sing about what the other bands are singing about, for that reason - which eventually leads to the breakdown of ideas and lack of any substance within the genre. Soil, however, sing about what they want to sing about. Even when the same subjects are being sung about by their peers, you know it wouldn't matter if they were or not.
For example, many bands got on the bandwagon of writing songs about the late Dave Williams of Drowning Pool fame (and by the way, Sinner completes the top three of the greatest nu-metal albums ever recorded), and not one of them sounded sincere. Soil's song Remember, on the other hand, sounds completely real - the lyrics are not the standard of some of their songs, and perhaps a bit cheesy (which is forgivable when you're upset about something), but the music is sublime and really hard-hitting. Whereas this song would have come across pretentious by any other band, Soil have treated it like any other song and in doing so have absolutely flawlessly prevailed.

5.0 out of 5 stars this tops it all 6 April 2007
By Pyriel
Format:Audio CD
when i first heard halo (taken from scars), i thoguht it was absolutely amazing. i went on to buy the album and that was equally as incredible, but redefine is even better!

not much has changed in terms of vocals or musical style, but it's somehow even better than the previous release. there are visible influences throughout the album, from older metal such as metallica all the way through to the newer generations, with drowning pool and sometimes even korn..

my favourite tracks are pride, redefine and remember.

this is a must-have for anyone who liked scars, soil or this genre in general (fans of drowning pool,maybe more recent machine head and suchlike...)

4.0 out of 5 stars RE-DE-FINE 25 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
you must buy this!!!
it is much more complete than major label debut "scars" - packing old school riffs and melody to combine with massive choruses and intelligent lyrics to create a modern metal masterpeice...take title track "redefine" - wierd intro leading to acoustic guitars then WHAM! the catchy old school riff hits you in the face, grips and refuses to let go.
There are absolutely no fillers on this record and this is why i recomend it to you.....it is totally convincing and melodic and heavy. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums I've ever heard 29 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Redefine is a must have for any Hard Rock, Post Grunge fan kicking offwith Pride and the title track "Redefine," two of the cleanest cuts ofmetal meat to ever peel from the post-grunge femur. Both feature flat,cutting guitar riffs boiling over stomping percussion; vocalist RyanMcCombs seems to tear out, chew up, and ultimately swallow the sinewyremains of his own Adam's apple. The tracks belong in that post-grungehall of heroes alongside Saliva's "Click Click Boom" and Drowning Pool's"Bodies," songs that transcended genre cliché with brute force and realgroove. (SOiL make a point of remembering Drowning Pool's Dave Williams intheir liners.) The remainder of Redefine can't fully sustain its initialenergy. But while Soil pay heavy dues to Alice in Chains ("SomethingReal") and Korn ("Cross My Heart," "Love Hate Game") throughout, McCombsand guitarists Shaun Glass and Adam Zadel consistently generate their ownbrand of caustic heat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 29 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is the follow up the the SCARS album which was, and still is, an awesome metal album which every fan of the genre should have in their collection. This album is also very good but not quite as good as theirt previous effort. Some tracks are better than others but i won't specify which ones as everyone has their own taste. all i can do is strongly recommend this album, most people will not be disapointed
