Great, for this style of music
on 25 October 2011
Now you pretty much know what you are getting with this lot, punchy chorus, a little radio friendly in places, some serious thumping riffs and thunderous drumming topped off with shouting and swearing that Slipknot would be proud of.
Now if this is your thang you are in for a treat. 3 albums in and FFDP have more or less perfected their art, there is enough cussing and bellowing to melt the hearts of the Slpknot brigade but with enough melody and hooks to keep your average Nickleback fan happy. Saying this, this collection is not a step forwards or back from previous efforts, it just a fine tuning of some of the rough edges of the previous 2.
Waiting to hit number one near you soon, is I remember Everything, a solid transitional power ballad with soaring chourus and a solo straight out of Pink Floyd, marvellous stuff. Away from that we have The Pride an almost rap celebrating their American roots with a great sing along chorus. In fact all of the tracks pass the hum test - each song is memorable from the offset, pushing just the right buttons to keep you coming back for a 2nd, 3rd 4th listen.
This album will seriously damage your hearing (its recorded very loudly which sets the old IPod jumping) and is pretty much guaranteed to earn you a speeding fine, as you find your foot easing on the gas as it pumps out your speakers.
New? No. Ground breaking? No. Likely to push them to the bigtime? Hope so, but fear not. Great fun? Yep. Hard rock at is snarling, swearing, chest beating, adrenaline pumping best? You bet
