Not Far From Genius,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nightmare [Explicit] (MP3 Download)
Before this albums release, i had only really heard A7x's released singles from music channels, after realising most of their stuff is awesome, i decided to buy this album knowing it could possibly be their best yet as some of their older songs seem a little.. "samey".
This album's definitely a new direction for the band and perhaps a one off?.
All in all, anyone who apreciates music will find this album awesome. Dark & heavy, you feel their sense of anger, despair and demonstrates exactly what kind of emotional ties they have with the music after the rev's passing.
Thumbs up to Portnoy for filling his shoes , through my eyes (or even ears) he's the best drummer in the world.
As a bonus there are no lazy 3min songs anywere ;) , most tacks push 6 minutes , track 10 is a thumping 11mins!.
This album deserves no less than 9/10 :) , ENJOY!
