This review is from: Transit Of Venus (MP3 Music)This album is not as good as these reviewers make it out to seem.
I'll admit, it's not a bad album by any means, but after Life Starts Now I was hoping TDG were going in a different and evolved direction with their music, but what they've come up with here is completely uninspired and generic mainstream rock. If that's what you're looking for then you'll like it, but if you were hoping for something a bit beyond what they've done in the past then this is not it. The instrumentation is good and Transit of Venus comes with the best drum recordings of any of the band's catalog, however, the lyrics are so generic they can't be ignored. "Misery Loves My Company"? "Happiness - Straight from the bottle"? "You're the unbreakable heart"? Come on.
I hold this band to a higher standard than many because I know they can do better. This sounds like a never-released Hinder album.
