I am (or at least was)a massive Shinedown fan,I have all the albums and have seen them a number of times. After a long wait I really expected another storming record like previous efforts,but this falls well short,some of it sounds like the bits cut from the previous album, some sounds like Elton John wrote it,if 'Take that' did a rock album this would be it. I am probably in the minority,but I think the band performed better and wrote better music with the older,two guitarist line up. Give me 'The sound of Madness','Leave a Whisper' or 'Us and them' any day,this one is at the bottom of the pile.
