Been a fan since TDG first came out and love all of their stuff. I was hoping for a little more anger in the feel and lyrics of this CD than it has... but nonetheless I still support them, it's not a bad CD... just not what we all normally expect from TDG. I can honestly say that I don't skip a track when listening to this CD.. I do indeed like all the tracks... I just don't get the same urge to headbang when listening to this CD as I still do when "I Hate Everything About You" or "Home" etc.. comes on the radio... So yeah... five stars for good stuff... just not great.
