Smell the polish,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amaryllis (Audio CD)Is this as good as Sound of Madness.. in a word no.
But who's bothered ?
The only real problem for me is that this is too polished, the songs are so big that they smell very faintly of sellout and the lyrics aren't quite as good as on previous albums.
All of that aside what you are left with is one of the best hard rock albums that you'll buy this year.
Without doubt there are songs on here which given any airplay would break Shinedown as big as How You Remind Me broke Nickleback, remember when they actually used to be good ?
Damn good then but next time just a little bit more edginess and a slightly rawer sound could make them another classic, just don't do a Nickelback.
Best track at the moment Enemies
