Album Review

Godsmack recorded its self-titled debut for 1,500 dollars and served up a triple-platinum helping of meaty, cleverly written, pure metal. The tribal "Voodoo" was one of 2000's best singles. The first three songs of the group's sophomore effort, Awake — "Sick of Life," "Awake," and "Greed" — blend together unanimously into a swirl of Tony Rambola's jackhammer guitar riffs. It's the deeper cuts that are the standout tracks. The dirgy, slow groove in "Mistakes" is hook laden. One common thread between Godsmack and Awake is lead singer Sully Erna's angst-ridden lyrics. "Oh God, I'm makin' the same mistakes," he cries in "Mistakes," as Rambola's guitars encircle him. Drummer Tommy Stewart, on "Trippin'," aptly pronounces Erna's anger in "Face down/I walk away/Every time I think I do the right thing/You turn your back on me."

Second best Godsmack CD

This CD is my second favorite Godsmack CD. (Best songs are Awake, greed, and forgive me.) I wish I could rate this a 5, but because it's the second best, it gets a 4. Maybe a 4.5...

Sully Erna's best work

This is definitly one of Godsmack's best albums. it shows when they open up the album with Sick Of Life (favorite songs) I dont know why this is being called a sophmore slump when it's probably one of thier best albums.

Get Ready to have your head knocked off

This is by far one of there best cd's. Every song it made equal and has very stong meanign behind them..
