5.0 out of 5 stars Are you freaking Kidding Me??!!?? June 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD
What's all this crying about? Get over it! This is 2013 people and it's damn hard to find good NEW music. This new Filter album isn't Short Bus and it shouldn't be, because Short Bus came out in 95. It isn't Title of Record either. I own those albums and wouldn't buy another copy 17 years later. This album is Richard Patrick singing/screaming his ass off. Just through the first listen, you can tell how much was put into this album. There's a lot more heavier tracks than I expected, which shows that Filter still has their edge. "Surprise", "First You Break It", and "It's My Time" are a great change of pace too. Like another reviewer said, "Take That Knife Out of My Back" is classic Filter at it's core and seems like it was a lost track from some Soundtrack. This is actually the most complete Filter album I think I've heard. Great from start to finish!! In the last two years I've bought two albums, Foo Fighters Wasting Light and this one you're reading. It's 2013, and it doesn't get much better than this people!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Rush to Judgement on This CD June 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
People should not be so quick to rush to judgement, seems like the majority of the bad reviews are based on first listens of the album. Sure, Richard Patrick reached his peak with his band Filter around the post-Title of Record / pre-Amalgamut era, but this new album shows some glimpse of being unique. I will admit that there are a couple of songs where I find myself scratching my head wondering what the hell Richard Patrick is thinking (e.g., It's My Time), but for the most part this is a solid release. I try to base my judgement of new rock music by comparing it to other new rock music currently trending on radio stations, and whether or not the music is successful at straying away from sounding like the typical radio-friendly rock songs. After these few listens, I say that this album succeeds at that feat. One of the reasons for giving 4 stars instead of 5 is I question the production quality of this CD. This is very unlike Filter's previous releases, but many of the songs almost sound as if they are "muffled". Can't tell if this was intentional or not, but I think the songs would have turned out much better if they had cleaned some of this mess up. Still a good release, and recommend it to rock music fans. However, DON'T JUDGE THIS CD BASED ON ONLY ONE LISTEN!

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back To The Fold June 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Vocalist/guitarist Richard Patrick has been through so many career highs and lows and worked with so many people that it's almost as if each time he releases a new Filter record, he's being reborn. Never has this been truer than on Filter's sixth studio album, "The Sun Comes Out Tonight." Though the album finds Patrick reuniting with "The Trouble With Angels" producer Bob Marlette, the most significant change to Filter's DNA occurs through the addition of guitarist Johnny Radtke. Having been an integral member of fellow Chicago alt-rockers Killhannah, Radtke brings his own style (both sonically and aesthetically) to the table with Filter, marking yet another chapter in the outfit's near twenty year existence. Also of note is the group's first alliance with a major label in ten years, Wind-Up records. So it should come as no surprise that this album is packed full of songs ready to rip up the radio, though that's not necessarily a bad thing.

First things first: Richard Patrick sounds phenomenal on this album. Just as "The Trouble With Angels" proved, "The Sun Comes Out" further drives home the fact that Patrick is one of the most authentic and talented vocalists in hard rock today, just as he was in the 90s and so on. The album's lead-off track "We Hate It When You Get What You Want" and "What Do You Say" deliver fat hooks with Patrick alternating between singing and screaming his guts out. Both tracks find the frontman tipping his hat a bit to his days spent as a guitarist in the original touring line-up of Nine Inch Nails, delivering as much intensity as possible while retaining a catchy beat. The electronic elements sprinkled throughout the album are as much a product of Radtke's influence (look Killhannah up if you haven't already) and they are part of Patrick's natural instinct.

I've been an on-and-off Filter fan since Short Bus came out. I come and go with what I like from the group. Loved the first three albums, couldn't stand a single track on Anthems For The Damned, liked half of Trouble With Angels, and now here we are with The Sun Comes Out Tonight.

I prefer the heavier riff-oriented stuff, as well as the electronic elements, so the straight-up soft rock and radio friendly stuff has always been my least favorite and I usually skip it in favor of unique underground bands and more challenging music in general.

That being said, if you are like me, then you should DEFINITELY find plenty to enjoy here. Although The Trouble With Angels was touted as being a return to a heavier Filter, that was only half true. It still had at least 50% filler in my opinion. The Sun Comes Out Tonight fixes some of those errors - I would say about 75% of this album is a return to form, with lots of classic Richard Patrick screams and great hard rock/industrial riffs. Even the mellower songs on here are MUCH better than the last album - more real and less sappy. If you liked the mellow parts of Title of Record or Amalgamut, then you are in for a treat.

I'm really really liking this album except the last track - which oddly enough is the only song on the record I skip because its truly boring. The bonus tracks are keeper though so seek those out.

So in closing, if you are once again disappointed in Filter for not sounding the same as they did on Short Bus, then you might as well stop keeping up with Filter because you will find no closer a return to form album than this one right here. This is my third favorite Filter album behind Amalgamut and Title of Record. It's that good.

Easily one of the best albums put together by Filter. Hard rock guitar and soft melodies bring me back to the 90's. This cd hasn't left my car in over a week. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Album is decent, but replayability wasn't there for me.
I enjoy some of the songs, but the album lacks originality in general. I wanted to like it more, but it hasn't stuck around in my active playlist.
