Editorial Reviews

Hailing from Chicago, Il Soil burst onto the scene in 1998 with the indie release El Chupacabra. They followed it up with 1999's Throttle Junkies; but it wasn't until the 2001 release of Scars, which included the anthemic hit 'Halo' that the band truly was able to spread it's wings creatively and fly into the upper echelons of the hard rock pantheon. 2004's re.de.fine saw the band build even further on their blues-based rock-solid foundation. With over 350,000 copies of Scars and re.de.fine sold and two Top 15 sings at the Active Rock and Metal Radio formats, SOIL return with True Self, an album that is both the logical progressions to their past successes and a bold new musical statement. With new lead vocalist RJ Cavalier in the fold, True Self is a masterful solo of down n' dirty, melodic hard rock - as enticing to fans of Velvet Revolver as it is to fans of Linkin Park.

First off Ryan is a better singer than A.J. But A.J. does a great job on the new record.
GOPmetalgod72
My mate lent me is cd of this album and after browsing through the album I can safely say it will never ever go back in one of my cd players.

I just cant help thinking that with RM still in the picture this disc would have been so much better.

First of all, this is the Import release. If you've stumbled here by accident, you can find the cheaper domestic release at Amazon too.

What a strange circle: Dave Williams of Drowning Pool tragically passes, and Jason Jones joins Drowning Pool with a new sound...growling, unlistenable vocals; Ryan McCombs leaves Soil for "family reasons", and AJ Cavalier joins Soil with a new sound...growling, unlistenable vocals; Jason Jones leaves Drowning Pool, and Ryan McCombs joins Drowning Pool. Dave Williams, unfortunately, will not be back to join Soil after AJ leaves to complete the circle.

And, hey, AJ may never leave which will likely suit fans that enjoy bands that angrily shout all the lyrics through their songs. But if you loved Soil's Redefined you might not even like True Self.

The problem with True Self is it's not really Soil. I simply do not get why bands that have a major change in their line-up keep the same band name. Of course it works sometimes (Iron Maiden, AC/DC), but it mostly fails.

AJ at times actually does sound like early Ryan on the early Soil disks. And AJ does have a good voice when he "sings" instead of growls...but he predominantly growls. And there's a market for that growling vocal style. I am not in that market. AJ's growling on True Self is a far cry from Ryan's clearly sung anthem rockers on Soil's 5 star Redefined release.

If you're looking for the Soil that you knew that belted out songs with anthem choruses like "Redefined", "Cross My Heart", "Pride" & "Suffering", you might need to look to Drowning Pool's upcoming release with Ryan...because they are not here with AJ.

I hate to bash the new guy, but the frontman makes the band. If this is Soil's True Self, I'd say that they need to Redefine.

I bought this cd the day it came out. I knew the band had changed singers, but I had heard "Fight for Life" and "Give It Up" on their website before the cd came out and I liked those two songs. If you add the songs "Forever Dead" and "Last Chance" and "One Last Song" its a decent album. The biggest problem is that it has too many fillers. But this is still enjoyable to listen to.

While many say Soil with RYAN era is the band's finest moments I would say True Self hangs right with any of those albums.The obvious new addition of AJ CAVALIER gave the band a more well rounded sound from being heavy as well as even more melodic.Songs like "Hear Me" are more mature than most of the bands past tracks.The guitar riffs of Shaun Glass & Adam Zadel are on fire and prove the band is firing on all cylinders.If you want TRUE rock look no further as I know this is a hidden gem.

Soil has returned to give metal a much needed shot of grownup aggression. First off Ryan is a better singer than A.J. But A.J. does a great job on the new record. I have always loved that soil writes lyrics from an adult point of view. I'm 34 years old so screaming about mommy and daddy holds no use for me. Like their masterpiece Redefine ( greatest love song ever with lyrics that will make you cry) this cd has the awesome pick me up asking your wife,child, or both if their be there when the world goes wrong. Other standouts included true self,last chance,jaded, and forever dead with guest vocals from burton c. bell (fear factory)! One last thing you have to admire how soil lost their singer and still managed to beat drowning pool to getting new music to the public.

Soil changed singers on this album, and everything fell flat. Nothing here is terrible, but there isn't much to lift this beyond the muck of 10,000 other hard rock albums.
