Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Florida-based Post Grunge rockers. On Superfiction, Cold combines vivid, vibrant storytelling with elegantly heavy Hard Rock. It's a combination that the band has perfected since they burst onto the scene in 2003 with Year of the Spider, which went to #3 on The Billboard 200 chart and spurred the hit "Stupid Girl." Cold preserve the alluring darkness that made them a Rock mainstay, while honing their approach into an intricate, introspective, and inspirational style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again July 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
As a person who's been a fan of Cold since their debut album, I can say that this album continues with their ever evolving sound, and though alot of folks would call it Emo-metal ish, I simply call it cold. The lyrics move you and the music is easy to listen to in the car or in the house. It continues and further evolves from where A different Kind of pain left off, if you are a fan who didn't like anything after 13 ways to bleed on stage then this album might not be for you. But if your one of those true cold fans who have stuck with the band through each albums evolution, I feel this is simply a new peice of the puzzle, a must buy for any fan. Check it out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Truth is more potent than fiction August 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cold are an unusual band because singer Scooter Ward can relate to listeners on a very intimate, personal level. Most bands cannot boast this; however, the sincerity and message of his lyrics can also be the deciding factor on how Cold's music can be received. On the first three Cold albums, Scooter managed to be intensely personal, discussing many painful topics. Even though he used profanity at times, it was never insensitive. A Different Kind of Pain, surely a polarizing album, brought about a lightening of musical, as well as lyrical, themes and was thus more polished and slower in tempo. Those aspects suited it because of the vulnerability of the subject matter - death, loneliness, etc. In a sense, the rougher production of the earlier albums would have surely been a detriment to ADKOP.

Superfiction picks up roughly where A Different Kind of Pain left off. It is musically very similar, though only somewhat similar lyrically. At this point, it sounds as if Cold are simply trying to write songs about things, rather than having things about which to write songs (there is a key difference). Opener "Wicked World" kicks the album off with an almost alarming heaviness - surely heavier than anything on A Different Kind of Pain. It is wholly unexpected, and then nothing else on the album comes close to its intensity. Opener "Go" on Def Leppard's recent album Songs from the Sparkle Lounge is a very good comparison. The rest of the album is fairly familiar, though a bit too polished - in particularly, the drums sound artificial; they don't resemble a drum machine, but somehow they just don't work, the quick snare rolls in "What Happens Now" as the most glaring example.

Superfiction is by no means a failure, but it comes as something of a disappointment.

I anticipated this album so much after first hearing "Wicked World" months ago when it was streaming on the internet. I have been listening to Cold since I first bought 13 Ways To Bleed On Stage and have enjoyed that album and Year Of The Spider a lot. I will say that "Wicked World" was sort of a tease. There aren't any tracks like it. This is in no way a bad album. In fact it is very melodic but where is the energy and the flare Cold had on previous efforts. After hearing "Wicked World" I was expecting at least a few more songs on the album in the the same vein with some mellower ones, but this album is bogged down by too many slower and softer tunes. Don't expect to hear anything like "Kill The Music Industry", "Witch", "Send In The Clowns", "She Said", "Change The World", "Remedy", "Give"...well you get the picture. Cold were always able to keep great melody in with heavier tracks. If there were at least a couple of tracks with the same heaviness as these songs or even the first track then I would give this a higher rating. Scooter's vocals are definitely the most melodic they have been but I miss the haunting, grungier vocals he had in the past. Year Of The Spider was the perfect blend of heavy and melodic tracks but I understand that 13 Ways and Spider are in the past and bands evolve. The only true bright spots on this album in my opinion of course is "Wicked World", "What Happens Now", "Welcome2MyWorld", and "Emily". "So Long June" and "Flight of the Superstar" are still growing on me. However, I can't say the same for the other tracks. If you're new to Cold you may enjoy this album but I suggest you check out 13 Ways and Year Of The Spider first. You'll hear Cold's true sound and classics. The album really is 2.5 stars to me if I could give half stars but I rounded to 3 for them making a comeback.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Cold" is not really back. Someone else is. July 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a Cold and Scooter fan since I first heard them. Times change, of course, and sounds evolve. But after such a long hiatus and so much hype around 'Superfiction', I find myself incredibly disappointed. It has nothing to do with Cold not sounding like the Cold of old, though; the album itself is just... bland.

Scooter's voice is best used in his old throaty growl from '13 Ways' and 'Spider'. With all the effects he throws onto it in 'Superfiction', it's hard to tell if he's even singing at all. Surrounding him is typical, run-of-the-mill melody, with nothing to separate the tracks from anything else saturating the post-grunge market. It all feels uninspired, banking on the long-awaiting Cold fans who'd buy a new album with Cold's name on it regardless of reviews. Add in the fact that Scooter Ward's solo debut was some of the worst music I've ever heard personally, and the worst part of all of this is... I'm not all that surprised with how this turned out.

Just to make sure it wasn't me growing up, I immediately switched over to an all-Cold playlist (I hadn't listened to them much for awhile) and I found myself really getting into their old stuff, even songs to which I couldn't remember the words. The chemistry that band had then was unique and full of flavor; the new lineup in 2011 is much less interesting, much less inspiring, and much less "good".

If you're a Scooter/Cold fan, you pretty much have no choice but to buy the album. But if you're not and have enough generic 2000's rock in your library, I'd say pass. You won't be missing anything.

this album is a cliched rehash of COLD's earlier albums
YEs you are wrong their earlier albums were much harder than this one this album is more like different kind of pain which was not like any other album they made previously
