Typical of the Abbott brothers they came out with something new, heavy and that takes the standard conception of metal in a new direction, much like `Cowboys...' did long ago. Songs like `Time', `Nothin to lose' and `One Night Stand' are brutally heavy, and the others show the true talent of Dimebag, Vin and Rex as metal musicians. Seriously - these guys could've made a CD with Tony Bennett at vocals and it would've probably been just as powerful and brutally heavy.
I have bought over 50 CDs in first 3 months of 2008, and this is by far one the best.
Anyone who doesn't "get" what these guys are doing here should stick to their pubescent idea of metal and go buy some CDs with pentagrams on the cover so the music will feel 'heavy' for them. Anyone who's been a Pantera fan from the beginning should love this!
RIP Dimebag - you never knew me, but you are with me everyday via the huge legacy you've left all of us with your unique and beautiful music. You are truly missed.
