Album Review

On Shinedown's third album, The Sound of Madness, the Jacksonville-based band hits every post-grunge expectation: winding up the guitar riffs with thin, flattened distortion; pumping up rhythms with steroids; punctuating melodies with familiar fills; and writing vaguely inspirational lyrics that come close to confirming the group's rumored Christian rock origins. Their precision is accentuated by producer Rob Cavallo's pristine production, digitally designed to push Shinedown over into the big leagues where they can have the occasional adult rock power ballad hit without losing their testosterone-fueled audience. Nothing is left to chance, and that's the way Shinedown's fans like it. Some of those fans — the ones who like to see the band on the WWE, where "Devour," the first song on The Sound of Madness and its first single, is 2008's Night of Champions theme song — may carp slightly about that slight increase in gloss and almost imperceptible uptick in power ballads, but most won't notice these subtle shifts as Shinedown serve up what they always have: active modern rock embodying the sound of post-grunge in the new millennium. [The Sound of Madness was also made available in a Fan Club Limited Edition with three bonus tracks.]

Customer Reviews


アメリカはフロリダ州ジャクソンビル出身の5人組ロックバンドの3rd。 このアルバムで化けました。 久々に曲聴きながら鳥肌が立ちました。 1曲目の「Devour」からラストの「Son of Sam 」まで全曲がシングルカットできるほどのクオリティの高さ。 捨て曲無しの素晴らしいアルバムです。 その中でも特にとんでもなく名曲なのが「What A Shame」と「Call Me」。 この2曲まじでヤバイです。 エンド曲の「Call Me」のサビの至極のメロディは一度聴いたら耳から離れないほど素晴らしすぎます。 アルバムを通して聴けるのは曲の幹となるフックのあるリフに叙情的でどこか切なさを感じる極上のサビのメディの数々。 今やヘヴィロックだとかモダンロックだとかカテゴライズする事が時代遅れのような気がしますが、 間違いなく巷に溢れかえるこの手のバンドの中では1番でしょう。 購入するならボーナストラック3曲追加バージョンをお奨めします。 なぜなら、このボーナストラックまでがシングルカットできるほどのクオリティだからです!!! SHINEDOWN、何年かに1組しか出てこない逸材だと思います!!!!

Melodic hard rockers Shinedown hail from Jacksonville, Florida and originally featured vocalist Brent Smith, guitarist Jasin Todd, bassist Brad Stewart, and drummer Barry Kerch. Snapped up by Atlantic Records during the early-2000s flurry of post-Creed and Nickelback signings, the group released its debut album, Leave a Whisper, in 2003. Whisper ended up doing quite well for the band (eventually going platinum), aided by its single, "Fly from the Inside." Shinedown also supported it with a heroic...
