What Hapened To The Production??,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Savage Playground (Audio CD)
I got in to Crashdiet last Christmas when someone got me their second album, The Unattractive Revolution as an xmas present. I loved it so much that i had to go out and buy the other two albums straight away and i would say Generation Wild is one of the best albums ive heard in a long time! So when the new album came out i couldnt wait to get my hands on it, but, sorry to say i was quite disapointed. Firstly the production is poor - vocals sound fine but the music is muddy and muffled. The drums sound like they were recorded with a pillow over them and the guitars sound lost. Big change from the polished sound of Generation Wild. So now the songs. No instant classics for me, not many hooks and none of the usual sing a long sleazy anthems! Still a few good ones though, Change The World is a good opener and Sin City might be a new favourate of mine, Snakes In Paradise as well but thats about it im afraid.
All in all, not a bad album but not an instant classic. If your new to the band and your curious to hear what their all about go and buy Rest In Sleaze or Generation Wild.
Sorry lads, love everything else but just not this one.
