the Misfits are back!,
This review is from: The Devil's Rain (Audio CD)
or what's left of 'em. The Devil's Rain is the first studio album by the Misfits since 2003's 50's and 60's rockabilly covers album Project 1950. The Devil's Rain and Project 1950 both share one common characteristic. Jerry Only is the sole remaining original Misfit, and it's also the reason I initially passed on this album, but I'm glad I came back and revisited it.
This is not the Misfits of old, and by Misfits of old, I'm referring to the Danzig era. It's somewhat reminiscent to the American Psycho and Famous Monsters albums with less distortion. It's a mish mash of punk and metal, and they pull it off quite well. While no Danzig or Graves, Jerry Only holds his own. No over the top vocals, but he gets the job done. It's a pretty damn good album, in my opinion anyways, but is it a real Misfits album? ehh? I'm leaning more towards no, and I'm guessing that's why there are so many 1 star reviews. It's just not that bad of a record. I suggest you check out some of the tracks below and see for yourself.
