Through the Eyes
October 30, 2001
Overall this album isn’t too bad, I mean it could honestly have another song or two that are just really good. Besides that issue, the album flows through very well and tells a intense story about his life I’m guessing. I mean the guitar parts are very basic riffs, and same with the bass parts, and the drums aren’t really anything flashy. It is just they are probably one of my favorite Nu Metal bands, that never really got super popular, with about 2,400,000 scrobbles on last.fm at the present time. They have had a following, but in my opinion never really made it to the fame that they deserved. Now to the album.
1. The whole album is connected through the story that Chris Volz tells with his vocals.
2. You don’t have to love heavy metal to enjoy this semi-heavy album.
1. A lot of the songs sound almost the same, but that is kind of what you get with Nu Metal, or just metal in general.
2. Every song seems to be very negative. (That doesn’t always have to be bad it is just a little repeatative)
So honestly, the 2 cons are pretty much the same thing, just being repeatative. I think this album gets a solid 7.5/10. It is a good album, but nothing worth listening to OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, if you know what I mean. It just kinda gets old after awhile.
If you didn’t notice I tried a different format for this review, I think I’m going to use this style for the rest of my reviews.
