This review is from: Chamber Music (Audio CD)
Chamber Music is by far the greatest rock cd of late 99 and early 2000. Coal Chamber's first album was awesome but it's influences we're clear, and lacked dynamics. Chamber Music takes Coal Chamber to their own new genre. With all the Rap-Metal junk the radio stations pipe into the air, tracks like "Tyler's Song" "Notion" and the unexpectedly incredible "My Mercy" (featuring Aimee Echo from the late Human Waste Project) show that hard rock isn't doomed. Dez's lyrical hooks and melodies leave you singing along to every song. Meeg's has much dynamic range to his guitar playing range, from heavy unforgettable riffs, to dark echoing strings that make you feel as if you we're in a horror film. Mike and Rayna also have shown much improvement. I'd easily say that Mike puts any of the new rock drummers to shame.
Coal Chamber is a band that is going to stick around, and eventually take over. You might as well come along for the ride.
