5.0 out of 5 stars My CD player is broken....this CD won't eject!!!!, June 30, 2008
This review is from: The Sound of Madness (Audio CD)
This album is easily my favorite of the three Shinedown releases. I really liked Leave a Whisper, I accepted Us and Them for what it was, but THIS.....THIS is what I hoped for from Shinedown. The musicianship, the lyrics, the passion with which they're sung....it's all here. And, the more I listen to it, the more I like it. If you even only partly liked Leave a Whisper, you will LOVE this album. I've not taken it out of the player since I got it, and I get bored with music pretty easily.

I missed them when they were on tour last time....and I'm not going to make that same mistake again.

I agree with getting bored of music quick, and this cd isn't one that I will be bored with anytime soon! The lyrics, sound, and the overall music is just insane! An instant classic album and one that will help Shinedown get noticed even more ( I am hoping). I saw them once live at a small club in New Haven, CT, and they were amazing. I can't wait for them to come around CT again and hopefully they will be part of an awesome lineup! It would instantly be one of the best tours of the year! Great review. And I agree 'Leave a Whisper' is a flawless disc but what another flawless cd from Shinedown with them almost reinventing themselves and their sound and coming up with another kind of perfect cd.

They are still good in concert. But the band is just not the same without the old guitarists. Man I miss the leave a whisper days even though this is a good cd!

Can anyone tell me what sound or grouping of type of other groups they may compare to? I have never heard of them and just wondered since the majority of reviews are 4 to 5 star.

Me too!!! I usually don't go more than a day or 2 without listening to all or some of this CD. Love it! Great for working out to, listening in the car, or just whenever!! They are great live too - do not miss them...already saw them twice this tour & hope to see them again. Just a little worried that they are touring too much & not leaving enough rest days between shows. Brent's voice sounded a little raspy last week...so guys, rest a bit!! We don't want you to burn out or anything to happen to Brent's AMAZING voice!!!
