Album Review

Chicago-based alternative metal outfit SOiL's fifth album picks right up where 2006's True Self left off. Lead-off track "Tear it Down" wastes little time in convincing the listener that vocalist A.J. Cavalier is now the definitive SOiL vocalist (he replaced Ryan McCombs in 2004), and his mastery of the notoriously difficult tone between dirty and clean, along with the kind of solid musicality that comes from over a decade of playing together, helps keep Picture Perfect on the north side of mediocre. Never ones for subtlety (the cover features a weepy blonde in her underwear in front of a mirror), SOiL consistently puts out the kind of solid hard rock that earns slots on action/horror/science fiction movie soundtracks — stand-out cuts like "Temptation" and "Last Wish" echo Black Album-era Metallica, while tracks like "Lesser Hand" and "Surrounded" aren't too far removed from Creed or Nickelback.

Not a big Fan!

Soil is not the band they use to be! McCombs is way better than AJ! Im been a huge soil fan since 04 Liking what i was hearing from Scars and Redefine! Th i'm just not liking the way they sound without McCombs good news is he's back with the Band! So Brighter future for Soil! It deff will be better than this album!

sound good

they sound good like they got updated with the times

Great Album

Actually my favorite album of 2009, one of the few where every song is almost perfect. AJ Cavalier has some insanely good vocals along with the always good drumming that I've come to love from Soil.
P.S. --track 7 is listed as Too Far Away but it is actually Falter
