Old style with a modern feel
By A Cool Fonts User
I honestly was unsure about this album at first because of the Shinedown I already knew, and not so sure about the "new" Shinedown. But this album is, in my opinion, the absolute perfect blend of their old style with a modern vibe to it. I love this album, and there is not one song I do not like from it. Devil, Attention Attention, and Black Soul have to be a few of my favorites.
First ever 5 star review. I've been listening to pop, rock, alternative and metal for over 50 years. This album is probably the best overall album -- song for song - that I have ever heard. Every song is great and I cant get the lyrics out of my head -- they're with me all day, every day. Best songs: Get Up, Brilliant, and Black Soul.... OUTSTANDING!
The last album was so commercial it had no rock sound...was Glad to hear a change in tempo and heavier guitar here on a couple. The whole album doesn’t return to a southern rock swing though. It’s also very commercial. Different, yes, but not real rock. And for all the anguished lyrics it’s devoid of emotion.
I really enjoyed it
Black Soul. You’re welcome
These guys never disappoint! I can't turn off the CD! Every single song is amazing and Brilliant! They have a way with words! They are on FIRE!!!
I'm a diehard Shinedown fan but this album is awful. So disappointed after Threat to Survival. Maybe 2 good songs the whole album.
You all have talent. But the previous album & this album sound like they were produced by Taylor Swift. Sound fidelity slightly declined I noticed with Amaryllis. Don’t get me wrong i love that album. Great song writing & true talent of all of you shining through. But Threat for Survival fell flat compared to all previous. Threat for Survival’s sound quality & the levels of the album were all over the place. 2 tracks sound 15db lower than the rest. Digital distortion through out. This album even is worse. Brent you have one of the best rock vocals out there. But you can’t even tell on this album because it’s got nothing but effects all over it and sounds distorted as hell. It’s not good. It’s a waste of all your talents with this rushed album, poorly engineered & dreadfully master album. Where are the melodies? Sounds like a bunch of noise. I can’t believe anyone thinks these 2 albums sound good. Sonically dreadful‼️‼️‼️
THIS IS SO GOOD U MUST BUY IT
This album is fast paced and heavy, I love every single song, especially “ATTENTION ATTENTION”. The only song that I’m kind of iffy about is “special”... doesn’t really fit the album and the lyrics are like so obvious in your face that it doesn’t take much to decipher it which takes away from the fun of music. Other than that, this album rocks, I’d highly recommend it! 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
