You might be aware that Down has parted ways with original guitarist Kirk Windstein, and before that, longtime bassist Rex Brown. I think they prove beyond a shadow of a doubt here that the essential sound of the band comes from Phil's vocals, Pepper's guitar, and Jimmy' s drumming. Take one of those guys out and I wouldn't think of it as Down anymore, but the essentials are here, so the sound is, too. My early favorite from Part 2 is "Sufferer's Year," which I'm beginning to like more than anything from Down II, III, or the first EP.Read more ›
This album still has tons of riffs, but it seems to be much more straight forward and almost reminds me of how Reinventing the Steel almost seemed to regress to childhood inspirations and allusions. Down is a different band than Pantera, but I do love this album and it really does seem as if the new members of the band really were able to give this album some zing. My only criticism for this album is that it isn't longer. The previous effort seemed self contained, and while a full tribute album might have eventually gone stale, this one seems overflowing with potential. Not classic Down, but Down doing classic metal. Horns up.

Really it's a good album and I have a mad love with both eps cover art lately. If you like the first part you'll like this one too.
