The 14 track album, Shinedown's most raw and personal to date, is a mental, emotional and physical journey that follows an individual from life's lowest lows to the highest highs as anxieties dissipate and demons disappear. Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in house for production for the time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety. ATTENTION ATTENTION ushers in Shinedown's biggest and boldest chapter yet, as they once again uproot convention and deliver a cinematic and poignant body of work.

Song subjects range from dealing with our own demons, to how our lives revolve around social media and the separation that it creates from meeting and interacting with real people, to realizing that no matter what race, sex, or age that we are we are no more special then any other human on this planet, to addressing a fellow members struggle with bi-polar disease. The lyrics really get into some real gritty subjects that can be taboo for people and I commend them for daring to talk about such issues.
As far as this particular cd goes, I’ve seen a bunch of videos of Brent and the guys talkin about how they’re telling a story, this story is taking place in one room. I’m keepin an eye out for more animated videos like of the animated version of Monsters. It’s awesome! The entire cd is awesome, beyond awesome! When I first listened to it, it seemed a little off to me, in some way. I can’t quite pinpoint it, but after hearing what the guys said in reference to the story in the room, one has to listen more carefully. This must be reason why the words are inside the cd jacket, thanks for that...

I returned from the gig and bought all of Shinedowns CDs. I've been looking forward to this new album and like all the other albums at least 5 will hit you instantly and you will play them over and over. I'm sold.
Can't wait for them to tour. Being totally honest, I've been a huge AC/DC and iron maiden fan from the 80's at the age of 10, and have to say Shinedown were brilliant at the gig and better entertainment than the main hosts. Ouch.
Edit. Wow. I have been listening to this none stop for the past week. Some of the songs are up there with the very best. Some of the booming energy will make you bang that steering wheel as you loose yourself in the uplifting lyrics.
This album is fast becoming one if the best for me personally.
This album is heavier than previous ones but not so much so that it detracts from some stunning lyrics, there isn't a single track on the album I could single out as being less interesting than the other tracks. It's just excellent.
I read an article about Brent Smith and the music that influenced him as he grew up, he picks out some very good tracks but the underlying message in reading the article to me was that his musical aspirations were maybe suppressed by his parents, he speaks of having to sneak albums indoors or get friends to buy them for him and playing them on a walkman he kept hidden in his room.
When I listen to this album I am hearing references to his childhood and the challenges he faced, I am sure there are some messages in the lyrics about his parents and the frustrations he experienced when younger that I think he tries to explain.
I have loved every Shinedown album and always buy them on the release day, Attention Attention has been an absolute joy to listen to and I have indulged and indulged this weekend I must have listened to it start to finish at least 10 time and intend to play the SH*T out of it for a while yet.
If you like this band this is a must have for your music collection. I have thoroughly enjoyed all their music and this new album has met and exceeded expectations for me.
The first Shinedown album I purchased on a whim back in '09 was The Sound Of Madness and I really rated that which led me to back track their earlier two albums and then follow them as each album came out and, in the main, album after album served to strengthen their status as an edgy but melodic heavy rock band - but this one is a bit of a mixture so that I do find myself thinking that some tracks could have found their way onto a Take That Does Rock album.....being really just too "poppy" for a band with the credentials of Shinedown! I mean, even the title track as a rap, could have come across much more heavily had they attempted a Rage Against The Machine approach! So thank the Lord for the skip button!
Aberration? Perhaps! But for me, even the heavier tracks are lacking in the dynamics of old so that there is nothing here that makes me want to hit replay as previous albums always did.
I'll give them one more album after this one and if no improvement, then I will take my listening elsewhere!! Sorry.....
