I discovered Volbeat through a friend on Facebook only a few months ago and after listening to a few songs on YouTube I decided to buy this album, even though I'd only heard three or four of the tracks beforehand. It was definitely worth it! Singer Michael Poulsen's voice is fantastic and the music is exactly the type of thing I love - not *too* heavy, and lyrics you can actually make out. One of the best albums I've purchased lately! I would recommend it 100%
This has to be their best album. Unlike their later albums, this album never gets boring. The songs here are much more varied in tempo and melodies. Another thing that makes this my favorite album from them is because it's the heaviest and most headbangable. It also has "Healing Subconsciously", which is my favorite song from Volbeat.
First got to hear of this band through Facebook of all things and i was quite surprised how good they were. The vocalist Michael Polsen definitely bases himself on the late great Johnny Cash , and it shows in a lot of his singing and also some of the guitar playing. All in all this is a good cd and i recommend it to anyone who fancies something a little bit different.
Had only heard them once before at Sonisphere and thought I would start with the first album. Its got a great sound although sometimes I have found it hard to make out what he is saying, but thats just me. The tunes are top notch though and well worth listening to. Just about to buy the next album
