First off I'd just like to say my biggest problem with this album is the production. Most of the louder, heavier tracks sound strangely compressed and muted, like they've had all the life and attitude mixed out of them. Thankfully this isn't really noticeable on the more acoustic-based tracks, where the vocals and instruments sound like they've been allowed to "breathe".

If you're already a fan of Shinedown then this will be familiar territory and you will probably love it. If you've not heard (of) this band before, but like hard rock with metal influences, as well as mellower acoustic-based songs, with the odd trip into power ballad territory, then I'd recommend this.

1. Adrenaline
A fairly typical barnstorming opener, celebrating life that just demands to be played loud. Lyrically a bit dodgy but otherwise very enjoyable. 8/10.

2. Bully
A slower-tempo foot-stomper that shouts defiance at the kids that made your life hell at school. Great song, only minor niggle is that they didn't make the kids' backing vocals a bit more prominent (maybe not singing / playing over them would have helped). 9/10.

3. Amaryllis
The title track is a nice mix of acoustic-led verse and rocking chorus. A Journey-esque power ballad thats perfect for driving with the top down to. 9/10.

4. Unity
One of my favourite tracks on the album - a mid-tempo powerhouse of a track. I think this one was specifically written with live gigs in mind, with its "put your hands in the air, one more time" refrain. 10/10.

5. Enemies
A snarling beast of a track with insanely catchy, bouncy verses (another example of the odd mix of styles Shinedown seem to like putting into their songs).

I've all of Shinedown's albums and their first 2 albums are more heavy and then you've The Sound of Madness which is a mix of heavy rock, to what I call southern rock. As for Amaryllis, it's more southern rock...or just rock. Does this make sense?

It's not a negative thought though, because I really like all the songs and the lyrics and the main thing for me is this isn't samey samey like some bands often can be. It's another unique album for Shinedown, which very new tunes and I again have full appreciation of Brent's vocals.

The last song on the album, Through the ghost, is probably my favourite. And then I like I'm not Alright, Bully and My Name.

We saw these live in February too (for the second time in the UK) and they were awesome and played a few of their new songs of the new album. They're just an awesome band, my most favourite and would recommend this album for any Shinedown fan and any other rock fan too.

This cements Shinedown's full transition into the realms of american post-grunge MOR, radio-friendly pop-rock (bit of a mouthful, granted). They were always headed this way as their grungier debut heralded but there was always the chance that they could exist in that particular arena while still producing slightly left-field tracks. 2008's Sound of Madness managed this perfectly. It had radio-friendly, spangly, acoustic power-ballads that lay next to crushing, iconic anthems like the astonishing title track. And nothing seemed out of place. There's nothing wrong with making music for the masses but it just seems that they did it with a little more integrity on previous releases, with emphasis on decent songwriting over clipped track length. And, no, tacked-on swearing for no real reason does not an edgy album make.

That said, Amarallyis is not at all a bad album. In fact its new design makes for rather pleasant listening. The real problem lies with the strength of the songs. There are some absolute belters on here but only on the first half. There is nothing bad as such on the rest of the album but nothing that truly grabs the attention or is as exhilirating as much as say 'Devour' or as epic or moving as 'In Memory' and 'All I Ever Wanted'.

Openers 'Adrenaline' and 'Bully' are ostensibly the same song. They are both rollicking rockers chock-full of hooks and great choruses, but were crafted for the obvious reason of being singles (well at least 'Bully'). And that's no bad thing in a way as they are both fantastic. The title track is not a patch on the one from Sound of Madness but it is still a very good track. It is more of a ballad, played acoustically and rising to the usual emotional crescendo. 'Unity' sounds like it will end up on a BT advert at some time in the future.

My most played album of the last year! (along with 'Sound of Madness') A big variety of Rock classics with great Music played by some great musicians, Love Brett Smiths explosive vocals, That guy has one helluva set of Pipes. Great guitar too. " I'll Follow you down" is the epic that should be in a film (something like Aerosmith in Armeggedon. And then there is "Miracle", which sounds like a pop hit to me.
