Awesome. Just awesome. Nothing is better than real rock, and nobody does it better than Candlebox. It's time to kick the three-chord, screaming vocals, generic melody, solo-less, "I hate my life", modern rock garbage to the dump where it belongs, and Candlebox is back to lead the charge. It is such a pleasure to finally buy a new album made by talented musicians and great writers. Every song on this disc is killer. I would have preferred a couple more of the faster songs, and overall the album probably isn't a total masterpiece like the debut or Happy Pills, but this is definitely one of the best albums that will be released this year. Any rock radio station that doesn't play something off this should be boycotted.
UPDATE: Almost two months after getting this album, I appreciate it even more than I did in my original review. I have a substantial cd collection because I get bored with albums quickly, but I can't stop listening to this cd! I would now say that it actually deserves to stand with their two other classic albums, the debut and Happy Pills. Also, I would say that the mix of tempos among the songs is perfect. In fact, the slower songs have become the ones I enjoy the most on this cd, although the rockers are excellent too. Bottom line: this is an amazing album, especially when considering the ten year hiatus since the last one. Hopefully, they will carry on for many more years, and many more outstanding albums.
