4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Horse, 30 Oct 2009
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
Where do I start? The album kicks in with a brilliant heavy, punchy riff... and I'm expecting a gruff, scream-like vocal. Then the brilliant vocals of Dryden Mitchell penetrate my ear drums... wow. This album is an amazing blend of Grunge, Punk and Nu-Metal. They have covered all possible rock style genre's in one album... making each song different and the album a pleasure to listen to.

And so I listen on, through two brilliant tracks (Courage and Movies) and an average sort of third track (Flesh and Bone). Then the Dark Horse of the album is played. Whisper begins and my first thought during hearing the first guitar riff (which is mainly one chord) is that maybe the album is about to go downhill. Then the chorus kicks in, a powerful, constant set of chords, with Dryden's vocal's fitting in perfectly. Whisper is a very underrated track in my opinion... intelligent lyrics about the music industry and plenty of face-melting power throughout it.

There is no way I can finish this review without commenting of their brave Michael Jackson cover of Smooth Criminal. My favourite Michael Jackson song. I what can I say? They did it brilliant justice... and has kinda spoiled the original for me. The bass, and the gain of the guitar's make this song a lot more powerful than the Michael Jackson version, and all in all is a brilliant cover version. I'd certainly dance to it.

All in all this album isn't what you'd expect it to be. I was certainly surprised, and has turned me into a AAF fan.
