Product Description

Intense, dynamic, and full of seething rage, Drowning Pool's powerful debut finds ardent (and sometimes screaming) vocalist Dave Williams mining topics ranging from religion ("Sinner") to relationships ("Reminded") to fine effect, creating a nu-metal opus that's rock-solid from start to finish. "Bodies" boasts an irresistible, insinuating growling chorus ("Let the bodies hit the floor"), with the tune's melodic, suspenseful verses providing the perfect buildup for the cathartic chorus. Williams's impressive whisper-to-a-scream delivery in "Tear Away" and the unbridled energy of "Told You So" are also striking. The Texas quartet's post rap-rock heaviness is aggro yet melodic, not to mention believable, credible, and intelligent. Their smart lyrics, chunky rhythms, and punchy production (by Jay Baumgardner of Papa Roach fame) make this music for the Ozzfest generation. --Katherine Turman

This Texas quartet's decision to make a nu-metal album which was less nu-metal than regular heavy metal was a wise one. "Sinner" not only went platinum, but it appealed to fans outside of the nu-metal genre. Drowning Pool don't bother with the trendy hip-hop vocals; this is a band which rocks in old-school fashion, with heavy, gut-punching riffs. "Sinner" is also different from other nu-metal records, because frontman Dave Williams not only writes somewhat intelligent and introspective lyrics, but his vocal styles are also quite good; he sings, growls, howls and bellows equally as well.

"Bodies" is Drowning Pool's most famous song, so it's obviously a stand out track, here. The verses are melodic, and they lead in, nicely, to the chorus, which is very cathartic. This song's chorus ("Let the bodies hit the floor!") is one of the most irresistably catchy chrouses I've heard, and this song is one of the best mosh-pit anthems I have ever heard. Elsewhere, "Tear Away" is a memorable, sing-along song about self-absorption, the title track has another chunky main riff and a very catchy chorus, "Reminded" has a good vocal hook alongside more mosh-worthy riffs and a huge chorus, "Pity" has choppy, surging, almost skipping riffs, "Mute" ties together good, melodic singing with wah-wah guitars, and "Sermon" is a heavy yet depressing tune about spiritual emptiness and needing God ("Where was God when I needed a friend?").

This album is full irresistible hooks, energy, intensity, excitement, and power. It is essential listening for all mosh-metal fans, rage rock fans, and nu-metal fans. And "Sinner" is heavy enough to make you a Drowning Pool fan even if you don't like nu-metal. Do yourself a favor: buy this album, and honor Dave's passing by playing it loud!

The first time I ever heard of Drowning Pool was during a WWF live event in 2004 when their song 'Bodies' headlined a LIVE wrestling event. I found the song to be catchy and a cleverly designed song. So I went ahead earlier this year and purchased the entire album 'Sinner' from After listening to this delightful album a number of times it is time for me to share my feelings on this nu-metal band.

Firstly the artwork is pretty interesting and different. The girl looks alittle like Amy Lee of Evanescence at first. The scope of the album pretty much matches the artcover, the mood of this album ranges from discussing religion in earnest in the first song 'Sinner' to relationships in 'All Over Me' and 'Reminded'. The better songs of this album are 'Bodies', 'Mute' and 'Follow'. 'Bodies' quickly became a moshpit favourite in concerts and dancefloors and 'Follow' became a BBQ song to be played with a loop with friends.

Drowning Pool is a band with promise. The band had a death in the lead singer after this album so this album pretty much is the original sound of Drowning Pool. The later albums have a new sound and atmosphere. (See my Desensitized review). I like this Drowning Pool sound best.

Fans of Staind, Linkin Park, Godsmack and Dishwalla will like the offerings of this album. Check it out, you will be surprised to find you like the songs and the sound of Drowning Pool's debut album.

When I first listened to this album, it was about a year ago. I didn't really get into it too much, but soon I realized that those songs I heard, I wanted to hear them again! I saw the videos for " Bodies" and " Tear Away" and I was very impressed. I kinda kicked myself for not recognizing the awesome album that I had borrowed from my sister, "Sinner" by Drowning Pool. I recently purchased the album and it is one of my favorites. Dave Williams was an awesome guy, even though I never met him, I have heard nothing but good things about him, and the way he sang, is truly awesome. He sang with emotion, feeling, and was the perfect mix of hardcore metal vocals and melodic metal vocals. He could sing, but he could also take care of the metal growls as well. The rest of the band, C.J., Stevie, and Mike, are awesome as well. C.J.'s driving and intense guitar riffs, plus the rhythm section of Stevie and Mike is one of the best in modern metal. I like all the songs on the album, but my favorite is " Told You So". The song starts off with an awesome riff and the chorus is constantly playing in my head. " Told Me!! Told You!! Shut-up!!" Just a classic metal fist-pumping song. My other favorite is " Tear Away" which is one of the best rock songs I've ever heard. It's a very addicting song, you just want to hear it over and over again. Overall, this is an awesome metal record, one that you will definately want to purchase if you are a fan of the metal genre. I'm hoping Ryan McCombs will be able to lead the band back to metal greatness, and that they will be able to release an awesome record with Ryan as well. I like Jason Jones, I think he is a good metal singer, I guess he just had other plans musically, and wanted to pursue other goals when he left Drowning Pool. So, check out this debut record from Drowning Pool, you will definately not be disappointed. Rock on Drowning Pool, and R.I.P. Dave!! You rock man!!

Drowning Pool definitely doesn't suck. Limp Bizkit were good but Drowning Pool is better. People think that their self-titled demo is better, but deep down, it isn't, this is better.
1)Sinner(2:27): This song makes a great opener for a quickie. One of my favourites too. Dave must've been really angry when he wrote this song. Definitely a 10/10.
2)Bodies(3:21): Drowning Pool's first hit. And it's pretty damn good too. "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor", it completely rules. 10/10
3)Tear Away(4:14): Drowning Pool's second hit, better than Bodies by far. This song was on Wrestlemania X8. 10/10
4)All Over Me(3:12): Well, not as good as the first 3, but better than some other songs. An original song. 7/10
5)Reminded(3:24): Another fav of mine. this is what Limp Bizkit's Hold On tried to be. Simply one of the best. 10/10
6)Pity(2:52): NICE! This is another of my favs, with great riffs from C.J. Pierce and Stevie Benton. Another classic which everyone will consider the best. 10/10
7)Mute(3:19): Not bad, but unfortunately worse than All Over Me. This is just an opinion though. 5/10
8)I Am(3:49): Well, this isn't bad, but it gets a 9 instead of a 10 because it's been on every CD Drowning Pool made. 9/10
9)Follow(3:20): Another of my fav's. This was on the soundtrack of Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3. And it was cool. Better than Reminded. 10/10
10)Told You So(3:05): The only song with a swear word in it. Pretty good. 8/10
11)Sermon(4:19): My favourite song on here Hands-Down! This is anti-religious and the heaviest on here. I like the part: "Ladies and Gentlemen etc" The Best, including the backward masking at the end. 10/10+
Drowning Pool are the best. Rest In Peace Dave Williams.
