The start of something HUGE
on 17 February 2004
Okay so it isnt the START of something considering it is their second album but it is according to the band themselves who say that this is their first album proper. anyway this album is absoloutely fantastic from start to finish! AS heavy metal fan myself whose favourite bands include Machine Head and Metallica, I was a little apprehensive at buying this in the first place as I thought it would be a little too 'pop-like' for me. But I was wrong. The album starts with We Still Kill the Old Way which is one of the best songs on the album with a killer chorus and some inventive ideas to boot. Then we get To Hell We Ride which is followed up by the brilliant Last Train Home. My favourite songs on the album are We Still Kill the Old Way, Start Something (which has a riff that reminds me of Muse' Stockhom Syndrome by the way but that dosent matter!), Last Summer and We are Godzilla you are Japan. But every song on the album is a cracker, and the fact that they have those weird but cool outros on some tracks is also very inventive. Bascially this album rocks, its also mellow, has some great riffs and though yes it is different from their first album its still worth every penny of your money. album of the year contender already? I think so.
