AX7: The Tribute Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hail to the King (MP3 Download)
I guess I should say from the beginning that I like this album. It is 'solid' across the board, and certainly has enough going on to be interesting and invite repeat listens. Nonetheless, as a number of other reviewers have noted, both here and in magazines, Avenged Sevenfold here wear their influences on their sleeves, and so strongly do these influences emerge, there is the unavoidable feeling that the band have lost their own sense of identity. It is difficult not to listen to the tracks on offer and not find yourself thinking of them as each paying tribute a band formative for AX7, song titles moving aside for the thought of 'ah, this must be the Maiden Song' or 'hmm - sounds a bit like Sad but True, must be the Metallica song'. Overall a listenable album, but rarely offering anything fresh.

Totally agree, was listening to 'coming home' on the ipod at the gym this morning and got halfway through before I realised it was AX7 and not Iron Maiden.
Still a very good album though :-)
