4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 not 4
I gave up on Sevendust after Seasons as I thought they had lost something. To me they were the epitome of what "Nu-Metal" was striving for. I bought this album just to see what had become of them.....
Ah look, just but the album, if you like Home, you will like this, it is by far their heaviest album and their least varied (not a bad thing). It will, as the cover...

3.0 out of 5 stars Lack of imagination spoils a potential masterpiece...
For a band that have enjoyed considerable success in their native American homeland, Sevendust have always been a band that have never quite been able to translate their obvious talent into the worldwide recoginition many thought they deserved. Album number six seems to prove why this is the case, as Sevendust come across as a band sonically treading water, where each...

This review is from: Alpha (Audio CD)
For a band that have enjoyed considerable success in their native American homeland, Sevendust have always been a band that have never quite been able to translate their obvious talent into the worldwide recoginition many thought they deserved. Album number six seems to prove why this is the case, as Sevendust come across as a band sonically treading water, where each song is one melody or riff away from consigning itself to the heavy metal hall of fame, but each song never seems to be administered with the incredible melody or riff it so obviously deserves. For all their ability, Sevendust have never translated to mass appeal because they have never produced THE album a la Panetra's Vulgar Display Of Power or Metallica's Master Of Puppets, the album that would make everybody stand up and remember this band. So whilst this album will certainly appeal to Sevendust diehards who have grown accustomed to the band's tried and tested musical formula, for the rest this will feel like just ANOTHER alternative metal album to gather dust in the CD rack, and that is Sevendust's greatest dis-service - to themselves. Because this album could, and should, have been something very special indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best albums, 15 Jan 2010
This review is from: Alpha (Explicit Content) (U.S. Version) (Audio CD)
Having discovered Sevendust only last year, it didn't take long before i'd purchased all their CD's (to date)
Initially, I wasn't so keen on Alpha. After putting it aside for a few months, I pulled it out, and it's gradually grown on me to the point where I now consider it to be one of their best albums. Certainly, one of thier heaviest!
Of the tracks (and there aren't any weak ones on this album), Driven (track 3) and Beg to Differ (track 6) stand out as outstanding songs. I've rated them out of 10 :
Deathstar (8.0)
Clueless (8.5)
Driven (9.5)
Feed (8.5)
Suffer (8.0)
Beg to Differ (10.0)
Under (7.5)
Story of Your Life (8.5)
Confessions of Hatred (8.5)
Aggression (9.0)
Burn (9.0)
Alpha (8.0)
The Riaa (7.5)
Abuse Me (8.0)
