4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good but no better., 26 July 2007
This review is from: Full Circle [Us Import] (Audio CD)
New singer and it also seems a new direction. Their third album moves away from where their second album lead. The song Soldiers is the obvious mosh pit radio song (as bodies and step up were from their previous albums) and it's a good song. Catchy with simple lyrics. The other songs vary greatly but none touch on the heavyness of desenstized. Songs like Love x2, Full Circle, Enemy, Shame, Upside Down, Duet & the Billy Idol cover Rebel Yell are good songs. The rest are too.... soft. I think this is a good album and I will listen to it for a while but I believe it to be a step backwards from Desensitized. Buy it for the above songs and it's worth the money.

Price: 19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 2006 the Year of Forever Never, 31 Mar 2006
This review is from: Aporia (Audio CD)
I first saw Forever Never [or Never Forever if you ask the lead singer of Seasons End! Blondes hey lol] when they supported Fozzy and I was blown away. I purchased their Demo, loved it and waited for their first album to be released.
Well here it is, in all its damn fine glory. 12 tracks of searing metal, of souring and growling vocals of brilliant lyrics... This album is one of the best Debut albums I have heard in a long time and Forever Never are one of the better bands to come out of 2005.
So onto the album which kicks off with the title track Aporia, which is a brilliant opening track. Not the best on the album but it gives you a good taste of what to expect from the rest of the tracks. The vocals easily switch between growling, rough shouting to smooth and soaring which adds something to this bands appeal.
The album follows in a same vein but with enough variations that songs are easily separated and do not blend into one another as some bands songs can do. The album can easily be listened to without skipping a track as everything is pleasing to the ear, the songs that stand out and will ultimately be played more are As I Lie [The track for which a video is soon to be released] and Saviour?. Other tracks of note are Better The Epic, New Arrival, Reversal & Silent Elegy To The Living.
This is an album which brings some new life to the Metal Genre and any fans of Soilwork and such bands will find this a pleasure to own and listen to. All we can hope is that Forever Never can continue to produce such music in the future.
So in all I say BUY IT and you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soilwork... Needs no work, 14 Feb 2006
This review is from: Stabbing the Drama (Audio CD)
Skinz & the rest of these has this down to a T!
I'm a long time Soilwork fan and so this new album is something new. It's cleaner than their last albums and more radio freidnly. But that takes nothing away from it's greatness, they have moved away from the gernericness of this genere and made something that is new. It's no revolutiobary but it's nice, it's an album i can play at school or home without people making comments about satan etc
Buy this album and you'll neva want to listen to another band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits..., 14 Feb 2006
This review is from: Greatest Hitz (Audio CD)
I'm not going to buy this album jus' due to the fact that I own all their CD's anway so why bother?
There are some good songs on this, though I'm annoyed to see Behind Blue Eyes... God I hated that song!
The Limp were a revolution, Wes Borland knows how to work a guitar and Durst has a unqiue voice.
Buy this if you've only got one Bizkit album, but if you have Significant other and Hot Dog Flavoured Water & Chocolate Starfish then give it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Metal Greatness, 31 Jan 2006
This review is from: Yesterday's Grave (Audio CD)
Ever bought an album, played it and had to skip some of the songs because they just were crap. Every Album has those songs which bring it down, very rarely does an album have such class that every song on it is a Pure Metal Anthem!
This is one of those albums, from begining to end every second is a joy to listen to, I had this record on for three straight hours and I did not grow bored, i never skipped a song I jus listned to what has to be one of the greatest metal albums of the last 4 years.
Buy this and I promise you that you will not be disappointed... Once again this is pure, unadulterated metal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... Except 1 track, 26 Jan 2006
Bascially this is a great album and the live tracks add depth. There biggest hits are on this tracks with only Droppin' Plates really standing out as a strange track.
One quibble, I recently played the Down With The Sickness Live track at work and a number of Muslims heard this and were deeply offended by the begining... i just thought it was cool intro but it seems to be more. They were very much horrified by this. That is the only real problem with this amazing album

4.0 out of 5 stars Devolution of Endo, 21 Jan 2006
This review is from: Songs for the Restless (Audio CD)
I bought the orginal Endo album Evolve and was blown away, it was hard and heacy. It was good, all godd!
So i went ahead and bought this little number and find myself somewhat disappointed. There are good tracks on here but I would hardly class this as metal. It's Rock and not even Hard Rock.
They've moved away from a winning formula. So why give it 4 stars, because it's still a damn fine album, just disappointing they had to move away from their last anthem filled album.
Songs For The Restless has no songs to compete with Leave Us ALone or G.A.D! Buy this album but if you're stuck for choice between this and Evolve buy Evolve!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 27 Sep 2005
This review is from: Crash Of 47 [Us Import] (Audio CD)
This album has a host of different styles of songs which are all great.
Songs like Pencil Fight & Whitfield show the skill of this band. there are some traditional hard rock songs and some mellow ones. The lyrics are wierd but this just adds to the greatnes of this album.
This album is worth getting and will complete any collecton and hopefully they will have more to follow.
