Nothing really ever changes from one album to another with BLS. The songs all sound very similar and although the lightning quick lead breaks are great, again, it's just how quick can you play a pentatonic run. 'Blacked Out World', 'Give Yourself To Me' and 'Hell is High' have an identical format - intro, put the backing vocals for the chorus in, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, etc .... yawn!!
'Black Mass Reverends' and 'Concrete Jungle' are OK but nothing spectacular.
The only real stand out for me was 'Last Goodbye' only because it's something different from all the other albums.
No song on here is as heavy on here as the likes of 'All For You', 'Phoney Smiles ..' or anything from 'Sonic Brew', and the slower songs are boring and uneventful in comparison to anything on the 'Book of Shadows' album.
I really don't get why everyone seems to be raving this album - I really don't get it. If you want to see the two sides of Zakk Wylde, go get yourself 'The Book of Shadows' for the mellow stuff, and 'Sonic Brew' or 'Stronger Than Death' for the metal.
If you want to hear some truly inventive, mind blowingly fast guitar playing that doesn't get boring, check out John Petrucci of Dream Theater. If you love the heavy stuff, 'Train of Thought' is the album for you.
Jam packed full of tasty riffs and everything you could ever want in a metal album. He can occasionally go a tad over board with the pinch harmonics but it still sounds fantastic :P My personal highlights are 'Black Mass Reverends' 'Faith is Blind' and 'Concrete Jungle'. Zakk Wylde really shows off his brilliant guitar skills in this record, Especially with his solos. Mind blowing stuff.
Would highly recommend this to any metal fan.
It was their first release on Roadrunner Records, and it was released in 2006, one year after their successful Mafia record. The album was co-produced by band leader Zakk Wylde and Michael Beinhorn (of Korn, Marilyn Manson, Soundgarden and Ozzy Osbourne fame).
The band are purveyors of big meaty riffs, frequent guitar slide and squeals, and Zack’s blistering solos. The mostly guitar based songwriting is accompanied by Grunge-tinged singing, solid uncomplicated rhythms designed for head-banging and fist-pumping and a mixture of fast or mid-paced Metal songs with acoustic numbers (often with a slight Southern Rock hint or the inclusion of piano).
The vocals here have gone from a sort of blend between Neil Fallon and Layne Staley to having a larger Ozzy influence this time around. Other than that, this isn’t one of the band’s most talking-point albums. Not the rawest, the fastest, the doomiest, the most quiet, or anything else. This is just Black Label Society, doing their thing (meaty, simple, enjoyable Metal songs). It could be argued that this is a slightly more commercial effort due to the mostly shorter song durations and frequency of ballads, as well as the inclusion of the MTV friendly hit single “Concrete Jungle.” So; if you aren’t into the bands rawer, doomier side, skip their debut and start here, and vice-versa; if you want the band at their gnarliest start with the early stuff and work forwards.
No matter what direction you prefer from the band however, there are some really killer BLS songs on here; especially towards the end of the record.Read more ›
This is 13 tracks of pure Rock / Metal to get the juices going.
You have the power houses like "Concrete Jungle", "Black Mass Reverends" and "Devil's Dime" as well as the lighter moments like "The Last Goodbye" and "Nothing's The Same".
This is Album Of The Year and I can't wait to see these guys tear these shores up again.
A must buy!!!

All in all, a great effort from the boys, i thought they sorta lost form a cpl of years ago, but this along with mafia, are just a great return to where they deserve to be!!
