Biography

Early in 2007, producer Rob Cavallo asked Shinedown frontman Brent Smith about his goals for the band's new album. Smith didn't hesitate.

"I said, 'You know what -- when I'm dead and gone, when everybody in this band has passed or what have you, I want the world to remember this as a record that needed to be made, and that there was a reason for it,' " Smith ... Read more in Amazon's Shinedown Store

Editorial Reviews

Re-teaming with The Sound of Madness producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Kid Rock) Shinedown presents its fourth full-length album - the bruising, unapologetic, and totally kinetic Amaryllis.

Amaryllis, with unflinchingly honest, unrepentant songs like first single "Bully" and "I'm Not All Right, " as well as the deeply moving "Miracle" and the soulful love song "I'll Follow You, " delivers on its mission statement throughout its 12 tracks. From a thematic standpoint, Amaryllis is a record about vulnerability. It reveals the bruises and scars, but also their healing. "It's not a record for the faint of heart, " Smith admits. "Every single song makes a statement. I was looking for the kind of emotion that made every hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Because of that, I feel in my heart and soul that this album is a game changer for our band."

Six songs on Amaryllis feature a 30-piece orchestra, including "I'm Not All Right" - Shinedown's first-ever song to incorporate horns, which drive home the manic intensity of its subject matter. Another highlight is "Bully, " which finds Smith addressing the tormentor in question in the strongest possible terms. "Amaryllis is probably the most rock and roll album we've ever made, " Smith says. "We've always been a rock band, and I didn't want to lose sight of that. I told everyone the album had to do three things: It had to show sophistication in the songwriting, it had to show musical growth within the band, and I had to push myself to go places lyrically that I had never gone before. "

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from Shinedown March 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Bringing in their fourth studio album, Amaryllis doesn't disappoint! While I'm not your standard music reviewer, I did want to put a review up for those who are debating getting this album.

While not as strong or hard hitting as their last "Sound of Madness" album, it still contains strong musical rhythms, hard guitar rips, and great vocals. The lyrics for this album also seemed to have a bit more thought than their last few, which gives their overall feel a bit more depth, which is something I definitely appreciate in the music industry today.

All in all, Shinedown continues to show their musical strength and deserving right in the history as a great band. If you've liked their previous work, this album won't through you any surprises.

Bottom line: If you like good harder rock that isn't pushing the borders of metal or screaming obscenities into your eardrums, then Shinedown is a great band to pick up and this album can be a great start. At the end, I highly recommend the album.

Keep it coming Shinedown!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shinedown Continues To Bloom Rapidly June 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
In the current realm of rock music today, Shinedown blends in perfectly with the radio-rock sound that has been done by Nickelback and Theory of a Deadman. But, unlike those bands, who incorporate lyrics regarding bashing women, mostly evident in TOAD, Shinedown has always written lyrics that are straight from the heart and more poetic. They've never really went too far with their lyrics, and that is a band that I can easily get into.

"Leave a Whisper" is my favorite Shinedown album, hands down. It blended a lot of different styles of rock music together, such as nu-metal, radio rock, and even a little bit of classic rock. "Us and Them" portrayed a softer side of Shinedown, but in no way is this a bad sign. "The Sound of Madness" is what I like to call the band's breakthrough, displaying much more of the radio-rock sound than the previous two records combined.

So, now we're up to "Amaryllis", and while this does not level up to "Leave a Whisper", it's another diverse offering from the band. Shinedown continue to set themselves apart from the several radio rock bands that are dominating the airwaves these days. The songwriting is absolutely flawless and much more thought-provoking than even the best material from LAW. The vocals are improved more than on the previous records. Overall, the album is in fact their most adventurous to date.

Standout tracks on the record are as follows: "Nowhere Kids", "For My Sake", "Adrenaline", "Miracle", "I'll Follow You", lead-off single "Bully" and "Through the Ghost". "Nowhere Kids" is more of a political song, with lyrics such as, "Politicians, in condition dying for a curtain call", and "I know you're hanging onto zeros because you got nothing left.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an ALBUM!!! Just be warned this is EXPLICIT! January 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album. Every song is just so fun to listen to. My favorite tracks are:
3. Amaryllis
4. Unity
9. I'll Follow You
10. For My Sake
12. Through the Ghost

I will go through a track by track review here:

1. Adrenaline (8/10)
Fast paced, very fun to listen to. A bit loud and repetitive.

2. Bully (9/10)
Fun, makes you want to sing along. A bit loud again, but I like the climax and ending.

3. Amaryllis (9.5/10)
Very musical. I really like it. Will make you want to sing along.

4.Unity (10/10)
Great beat, engaging, this is a hit. Great melody.

5. Enemies (7.5/10)
Sweet guitar, but very loud and repetitive. I still really like it, but not my favorite.

6. I'm Not Alright (6/10)
Kind of dull, and just a bit "blah."

7. Nowhere Kids (?/10)
This song is EXPLICIT. I don't listen to it.

8. Miracle (8.5/10)
I like this song. Great lyrics and good sound.

9. I'll Follow You (10/10)
WOW! What a great song! This goes along the same idea as 'Call Me' from the Sound of Madness and this it is very musical and a good message.

10. For My Sake (9.5/10)
I don't think this is a very popular track, but I love it. The lyrics and everything is powerful and it is almost my favorite.

11. My Name (Wearing Me Out) (?/10)
EXPLICIT, so I don't listen to it. Sounded cool the first time I listened to it, but then BOOM! there's the 'f word...'

12. Through the Ghost (11/10)
I was blown away listening to this song. It is so musical and incredible, that this is my favorite song, right now at least.

You won't be disappointed by this album if you like Shinedown or Linkin Park or heavy rock, or anything, really. This is one of my prized albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate current day rock album July 15, 2012
By Brad
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My rock roots go strongly back to the 1970s and '80s, but I still like to look for favorable rock music in the modern day when time permits. Shinedown is one of those bands that has come out in the past decade that I always anticipate new music from. While it may have taken them four years to get new material out since the epic "The Sound of Madness", it has absolutely been worth the wait. This album is everything I like to hear in a modern day album--walls of guitars, melodies, powerful singing, and variety of tempos. Shinedown accomplishes all of that in this latest epic album. From monster tracks like the opener "Adrenaline" to beautiful heartfelt power ballads like "Unity", the quality is there. Just about every track has energy, attitude, and passion.

As a parent, I enjoy listening to appropriate rock music with my young kids. On this album, "Nowhere Kids" (track 7) and "My Name" (track 11) should probably be skipped with the kids around due to a bit of language--although they are killer tracks that I otherwise recommend. To these ears, in fact, there is not a dud on this album.

I highly recommend this album to rock fans of various generations. I enjoy this album with both my thirty-something wife and my teenage nephew. Excellent, rocking album from beginning to end from a band that has truly hit their stride.
