Wow, I am really enjoying this album. I cannot believe all the complaints. First, you can't compare this one to `Leave A Whisper'. Duplicating or surpassing that album would be very, very difficult because that album is a masterpiece. So you need to judge this album on its own merits. This album is just growing on me. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. I must admit, when I first listened to it, I thought I would only listen to a couple songs and skip the rest. Well funny thing, when I went ahead to start skipping, I didn't want to. Even the songs I thought I wouldn't like that much, I find myself singing in my head. These songs are catchy.

I will call out a few songs: "I Dare You"--What an up-tempo fun song, it has to be the next single. It kind of reminds me of "Better Version". "Shed Some Light" and "Beyond The Sun" are slower deeper ballads, reminiscent of "In Memory". "Some Day" and "Save Me" are also a couple my favorites. I do not skip a song, all of them are enjoyable to listen to. I even don't mind the poem "The Dream".

In short, very, very well done Shinedown!!! Thank you for another great album!!!

If I didn't admit I wasn't disappointed after first picking up this album, I would be lying. I was expecting, like most everyone else, another "Leave a Whisper". This is not Leave a Whisper by a long shot, but the songs are intriguing and a different side of Shinedown. It took me a few listens, but I think that this album will be in my CD changer for a long time for the mere fact that the more I listen, the more I enjoy it. Some albums you play to death once you get them, and in about six months' time you're ready to trade it in.

For the people who are pi**ed that this wasn't Leave A Whisper II, I give you Staind and Papa Roach, two examples of bands who never really left their style and have just become boring. For those of you who have listened to the album and gave it a chance, I give you Zakk Wylde and the voluminous projects he has completed. Most retain the brutality he is known for, but a couple of album and side projects really present a different side. I think this is Shinedown's 'different side' and fully expect another crushing album when project #3 is due.

The album sort of reminds me of Audioslave, and I wouldn't be surprised if they toured together at some point in their careers. Some people may knock it, but I think they pull it off pretty good. The music is quite good, and something to pull out when you just want to kick back and relax.

This is my first review, so I wanted to choose one of my favourite C.D's to start off with. This is one of the best contemporary rock of 2005, a must buy for lovers of decent music. Almost every song on this C.D is incredible, not to be missed.

These are my ratings for the songs on 'Us And Them'

1. The Dream: N/A Not exactly a song, a unique way to start the album off.

2. Heroes: 9/10: I love this track. The vocals in this song are awesome, real catchy track.

3. Save Me: 10/10: Another catchy track, builds up really well. Cool solo.

4. I Dare You: 9/10: Definitely was one of my favourites when i first got this C.D, slightly overplayed it - still love it though.

5. Yer Majesty: 10/10: My favourite track on this entire C.D. Great guitaring, really really catchy. Nice beat.

6. Beyond The Sun: 9/10: I love most rock/metal ballads - you really get to see another side of a band. Beyond the Sun is an awesome track, if it wasn't for this song, I probably would never have discovered Shinedown.

7. Trade Yourself In: 9/10: Kind of reminds me of 'Yer Majesty' another catchy track.

8. Lady So Divine: 10/10: I'm just learning to play the guitar, so of course I love this song. The solo is incredible, kinda sounds like a 'Santana' solo - a must hear for all guitar players.

9. Shed Some Light: 9/10: I love this song. Another ballad, quite a mellow track.

10. Begin Again: 8/10: Not one of my favourite's, nothing really that memorable about it - some good screaming though.

11. Atmosphere: 8/10: Eh. Good Song... but not as good as any of the other songs on this C.D. Decent guitar solo though.

12. Fake: 8/10: Another O.K song, sounds like a bit of a filler.

I have to start this out by saying I have been dying to hear this album for quite some time. 'Leave a Whisper' was one of the best albums to be released by any band in years. I could not wait for Shinedown to pump out there next album.

I got my hands on Us and Them about 2 weeks ago, and will admit when I first listened to it - I was not impressed, at all. It just wasnt what I was expecting somehow - and the funny thing is, I had no idea what to expect. The music then grew on me, literally - and I have to say, this album completely rocks.

I think somehow it is a little different than Leave a Whisper, but thats what bands do - they evolve just like everything else on this earth.

How anyone could give this album 1 star is beyond me, unless they have britney spears posters on there wall.

After listening to it solidly for about a week now, I cant stop listening to it. I find myself humming the tunes in my head at all times of the day.

It is different than Leave a Whisper, but I cant quite put my finger on to it as what makes it so. All I can say, is if you liked Shinedown before, give this album some time to grow on you before you toss it in the garbage.

Tracks I find great - Lady So Divine, Fake, Shed some Light, Beyond the Sun, Yer Majesty, I dare you, Save Me, Heroes - so thats like, 80% of the album. And damn, those songs all roooooock.

Thank you Shinedown for another awesome album.
