Best. Album. EVER.,
By A Customer
This review is from: III Sides To Every Story (Audio CD)
I can't remember how many times I've listened to this album. Possibly a million. And no album since 92 has ever had an greater impact on me than this one. This one not only got me into "real good music", but it made me think about a lot of things in my life. It literally covers everything, love, politics, life, and in most cases war and peace. No other group out there could've wrote songs about those things better. If you havn't heard this album yet, you should. It may sound a bit dated, as in early 90's material, but it's still simply brilliant. The whole album tells a story. It starts off as seemingly in-your-face with a lot of sarcasm and hypocrisy.. then gradually gets more and more serious, with an unbelievable climax of three songs which delve quite deeply but metaphorically into religious issues. It really is a moving mixture of heavy guitar, hard beats, lots of solos, with classical layered over the top, great lyrics, great singing.
