R.E.A. is an album not to be taken lightly. This epic CD is not an album solely for Metal fans, it features an array of bands not recognised as the stereotype of their genre (such as Slipknot), like the Deftones, Nightwish and The Perfect Circle. All songs featured are an excellent tribute to the state of modern alternative music. Bands such as Killswitch Engage, Slipknot, 36 Crazyfists and CKY do not fail to please with brilliantly written tracks. "The End of Heartache" in my opinion, is one of the top three songs off KSE's new album and should not be missed. The recording for R.E.A. is remastered and altered with melodic vocals and other subtle but effective changes.
Cradle of Filth dish out a superb track with undertones of a slow-paced Iron Maiden. The female vocals add dynamics not always found in today's scene to the song. The range of this album is enormous encorporating global bands from the UK, US and Germany, bands reknown for their musical genius. You won't regret purchasing this good title!
