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! 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
I was expecting better
I’m a fan, but they set the standard so high with Sound Of Madness that everything after that record is regressive. Amaryllis was good. Survival was meh. This is just…man, I’m just so disappointed. I can’t listen to an entire song without wanting to skip to the next one, and the one after that, etc.
I’ve been a huge fan...
By Steve Hajost
I’ve been a huge fan of Shinedown since 2002-2004ish somewhere in there when I heard them on the Grind soundtrack. I have also seen them twice in concert. Shinedown has always put out some of the best original music. Then came Threat to Survival. Of course I pre-ordered, Cut the Cord was a great track and it was Shinedown. Of course I was burned when it was the only song with any emotion on the album. Fast forward to this album, I purchased Devil because it was a good track and felt like the Shinedown of yesteryear... waited till the album was released to preview all the tracks. I bought 1 other song. Shinedown seems to have lost their edge and their soul. If you are looking for music with a little more heart to it check out Shaman’s Harvest or Royal Bliss.
Evolve is the best song on here
Can’t stop listening to it
I’m not gong to lie, the last two albums I have been pretty disappointed. I love shinedown and when I saw they were coming out with another album I was pretty skeptical and expecting another pop rock version of what they have been doing. BUT songs like Devil and Black Soul take me back to the Sound of Madness days. Monster is by far my favorite song on the album just because it hits the old lyrics that Brent went deep with in the early 2000’s. As a big shinedown fan I will say there are a few songs on the album that are pretty poppy and stuck to that anthem type crap they had the last two albums. But overall I will put this as a top three album of theirs. Good comeback.
Just a great album. You can see their vision and how the story plays out from the first song to the last. Every song is amazing. Don't have a favorite; just have a favorite band. Rock on Shinedown!
