I became a real Nonpoint fan following their CD The Return. The follow up, The Poison Red, was pretty strong, and i was really looking forward to this release when they teased Wheel Against Will and Dodge Your Destiny.
So, then, Nonpoint X. Classic Nonpoint nu-metal sound on the first real single, Chaos and Earthquakes, a catchy metal riff and wind me up guitar solo by BC Kocmit. Songs like the aforementioned Wheel and Dodge continue that hard sound. A little departure from the hard edge shows off how great lead singer Elias Soriano’s vocals are on Fix This (plugged in, and a bonus acoustic version) and Feel the Way I Feel. You will find yourself gettng caught up in the catchy Empty Batteries, and Milestone is a true Nonpoint throw back.
They wrap the CD up with a creative new take - the song Paralyzed is unlike anything Nonpoint has ever delivered, and it will have you hitting replay to hear it again and again.
Nonpoint is great live, and they give a taste of that with a bonus track, a concert version of Generation Idiot to round out the disc.
I think top to bottom this is a fantastic Nonpoint effort. Catchy riffs and sing along refrains, great vocals, pounding drums, driving bass lines, classic nu-metal solos, Nonpoint delivers with their tenth studio album.
