Album Review

When Sully Erna opens up "1000hp," the titular track of Godsmack's sixth studio album, with a line like "Time to rewind back to 1995 when we were nothing," it's clear that the hard rock giants are serious about recapturing the fire they had in their early days. And while The Oracle was a refreshing return to form for the band, whose sound had softened considerably since their self-titled 1998 debut. Nailing their flag to the masthead with fiery riffs and a seemingly unstoppable drive, the album proves that the revival of their previous effort wasn't just a one-off. Like their early work, the album eschews nuance for something more direct, taking the straightest possible path toward aggression wherever possible. This makes 1000hp a satisfyingly simple album that offers listeners a taste of raw, explosive rock free of frills and fuss, feeling as though Godsmack looked at the vast resources at their disposal and decided that all they really needed to rock was themselves, a few amps, and some old-fashioned anger. The most low-key the album gets is on album-closer "Turning to Stone," and even then the song's smoldering verses, which give way to some searing choruses, deliver plenty of intensity, closing out the album with a clench-jawed stoicism that feels like a far cry from the traditional power ballad. Feeling like a lost album from the band's beginnings, 1000hp is Godsmack at their most focused, showing that they've finally found the path back to their roots that they'd been searching for.

Customer Reviews

Ignore the haters

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of reading reviews from kids who were still crapping their pants when "Godsmack" and "Awake" came out. Most of these twits only know what music is good if their friends say so. Listen to a real fan.

I'm 42 and have been a Godsmack fan since their first single dropped in 98. I'm tired of people complaining about a band's new release just becausae they want to complain about something. "Oh, it sounds just like their other albums.", someone would say. Well, no sh**, it's the same band, what did you expect, their first album to sound like Godsmack, and their 2nd to sound like Judas Priest? If it's not that, then it's "They sound nothing like they used to." Mnd you, these type of complaints come from the same type of person.

All bull aside, if you love Godsmack and their signature sound, then you will love this album. It is 100% Godsmack, through and through. Track 3, "Something Different" is indeed just that. It's not your usual Godsmack song, focusing more on the melody than the crunching guitar riffs, but it still retains that edge that is typical of Godsmack songs. Easily my current favorite song on the album. I've only listened to the album twice, but I already know this will quickly become one of my favorite albums.

If you love Godsmack, buy this. You will not be disappointed.

Forced sounds of Godsmack

Another boring and unoriginal sounding album. Godsmack is the above ground pool of rock.

Love it

I'm 17 I've been jamming godsmack since I was in diapers and I look forward to starting my senior year of high school with a new godsmack CD! It's all come full circle
