5.0 out of 5 stars Burn My Eyes . . . brilliant - enough said, October 27, 2001
This review is from: Burn My Eyes (Audio CD)
To review this album, is like reviewing the Bible of metal albums. The album begins with an insane drum fill from the hands of Chris Kontos, and crashes in soon after with the rest of the band: Davidian has begun. This song alone, has to convince any listener, that what Machine Head is/was about, is power. This album, in my mind, and I'm sure I'm not alone when saying this, is one of, if not the single best examples of metal today. Robb Flynn's vocals are unprecedented. Not only can he growl with the best of them, but he proves that he can truly sing (I'm Your God Now, Nation on Fire, . . .). The Logan/Robb guitar work is brilliant. They combine their efforts in some awesome solos, and along with drummer Chris Kontos and bassist Adam Duce drive this album from strength to strength. Though I have to point out, that if you happen to be a drummer, and listening to this album, you will be amazed. Chris Kontos is brilliant. If you don't believe me, then get this album just to hear him alone, I guarantee you that you will thank me afterwards. But if you listen to the follow up albums you will be soarly dissapointed by the drums, this is because Chris only played on Burn My Eyes. Though I have to admit that the drumming on The More Things Change (1997), is far better than the drums on 1999's The Burning Red, which marked a visible change in MH's musical direction, and style. It should also be noted that this album was previously the biggest selling debut by any band on the Roadrunner label, although that achievement has since been surpassed by the 9-man army more commonly known as Slipknot. So, I guess what I'm trying to get across to you, is that this album is unbelievable. Vivid lyrics. Powerful guitars. Insanity on drums. This album, is one of those that will stand the test of time with the likes of Metallica's Master of Puppets. I only wish Machine Head would go back to their roots and write some more music in the same vein as this monster, but I suppose you can't have everything. So I highly recommend this album. If you have never heard the Head before, and you want to get some of their material, this is the way to go. I promise you. 11 tracks. 11 tracks that will forever change your sense of musical appreciation, and your perception of just what metal should be.
