iTunes Review

Doom and dysfunction follow Theory of a Deadman like dark clouds across the tracks of Scars and Souvenirs. This isn’t news, of course — numerous post-grunge and alt-metal groups have erected entire careers upon angst, but what's a bit different here is leader Tyler Connolly’s growing emotional maturity. Tracks like “So Happy,” “Bad Girlfriend” and “Crutch” find Connolly still raking ex-friends and lovers over the coals until their juices sizzle. “Hate My Life” extends this free-floating anger into a wider commentary upon societal breakdown. On these cuts and others, Connolly’s wounded-beast vocals and lacerating guitar licks tear into his victims with righteous bite. But beyond such bruise-inducing tunes, the band shows an increasing ability to deliver bona fide ballads, some of them actually tinged with hope. The uplifting “Heaven (Little by Little)” especially displays a measure of compassion towards a troubled loved one. Musically TOAD continues to invite comparisons with Nickelback’s heavy-treading sound, but there are signs on Scars and Souvenirs that this band is slowly moving away from the grind and gloom of ‘90s grunge towards a fresher form of catharsis.

Customer Reviews

They've Done it Again!

Theory of a Deadman is one of my favorite bands. Hate My Life is my favorite song on the CD, just because it's fun to listen to, and it's hilarious. The other songs are all great works of art, with meaningful lyrics and a bada*s southern attitude. I've listened through the CD about 12 times since I bought it, now I'm going to wait a week and see which ones sink in. Seriously though? If you're a fan of the music, you need this album.

Amazing

Theory of a deadman is one of the best bands out there. This C.D is amazing and I have listend to the whole thing twice already.

Theory's evolution continues

It is fantastic to see a band become better with each new realease and Theory has done just that. Although the albums before this were full of great tracks, especially their last release, the songs on Scars feature better musical composition then most other albums in this genre and are full of great lyrics, both fun and meaningful. The album is easy to listen to in one sitting and frequently finds play time during my long iTunes sessions. The songs reflect exactly what the album title says and I often find their lyrics connecting with some of my own experiences. If you have a chance to pick up the whole album, then go for it. If you want to pick and choose between the songs, then you won't be disappointed with any choice. This is definitely one of the most pleasing experiences I have had with a rock album in the last few years.

Vancouver, Canada's Theory of a Deadman became the first act to sign with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's 604 Records imprint in 2001.

One of these, "Invisible Man," was used as the B-side for 2002's wildly successful Spider-Man theme "Hero" (a Kroeger collaboration with Saliva singer Josey Scott), and anticipated Theory of a Deadman's...
