Not bad, just not great,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hail to the King (MP3 Download)
Like many other people have already mentioned, this album sounds more like a mis-matched collection of tributes to their heroes, rather than a single piece of work by the band.
When you compare this album to their previous output, I'm sorry to say (in my opinion), it doesn't come close. No tracks really jumped out of the speakers and gripped me, and after 3 or 4 more plays of the album, I still feel the same way.
Having said that, it's not offensively bad, it's just missing the edge & hooks of previous releases.
