Album Review

Knoxville, TN, alt-metal act 10 Years made their major-label debut with 2005's The Autumn Effect, an effort much beholden to the likes of Tool and Staind, and the album scored a big radio hit with the single "Wasteland." Reportedly recorded in a fractious intra-band environment (hence the title), Division sounds like the work of a band that carefully and thoroughly deconstructed its previous hit and attempted to replicate it several more times for the follow-up. Division is a smooth, radio-friendly record featuring new producer Rick Parashar's glossy layers of instruments and vocals. Occasional moments also suggest that the bandmembers now consider themselves "artists": the coda of "Picture Perfect (In Your Eyes)" is nearly as long as the body of the song itself, and features a spoken word poem read by one of the album's female backing vocalists. Division may well have the intended effect of prolonging the band's chart life, at least temporarily.

Customer Reviews

"Division" unites all.

This much anticipated album should not be labeled a mere "follow up": That would demean the growth, the blood, sweat, and tears that exude out of every track on "Division". These songs don't tease, they encompass: the drums will crash into you with a steady hand then make your heart skip beats; the guitars will rage then almost purr alongside the vocalists sweeping, viscerally sung lyrics. It's a wide range of tastes that will thrill the listener; from twisting rock riffs to an unexpected sitar piece; three minutes of seduction with an ethereal backdrop of electric guitar to soft-spoken word bridging the life of two songs. Brimming with an expertly crafted balance of guts ("Actions & Motives"/"Alabama"), grit ("Russian Roulette"/"Drug of Choice"), caution ("All Your Lies"/"Beautiful"), empathy ("Dying Youth"/"Picture Perfect") and emotion ("Just Can't Win"/"Proud of You"), this album will not only show that the five young men of 10 years know what makes music a timeless force, but that they were born to prove that its essence is very much alive. The journey has never been more enjoyable than this.

Excellent album.

1. Actions and Motives: Very energetic, it's very catchy. 4.5/5 2. Just Can't Win: I love the chorus! This song is really good. One of my favorite songs off this album. 5/5 3. Beautiful: This was the first single off this album. The song is a masterpiece! 5/5 4. 11:00am (Daydreamer): This is my favorite song off the entire album. Words can't describe this song. This is the song you have to download if you don't get the entire album. 6/5 5. Dying Youth: This song is good, its a little slow but then it picks up pace once it reaches the chorus. 4/5 6. Russian Roulette: I love this song!! This song is soo unique, its nice. 5/5 7. Focus: This song is good. It's not a song that I would listen to over and over again but it is still good. 4/5 8.

It's very raw, this is my second favorite song off this album. 6/5 Overall: 62.5/65 This album is worth buying. But if you don't want the whole album then make sure that you download: Beautiful 11:00am (Daydreamer) Drug of Choice All Your Lies Proud of You Enjoy!!

Let Down...

Pretty ok, but that is it. I had high hopes for this band, their first album was very dynamic with the vocals being the aspect that made 10 years stand out from all the other up and coming bands. Somehow though, the vocals went from brilliant and soaring to whining and annoying. Also there is nothing special about any of these songs, don't expect another Wasteland. Some of the highlights of Division would be there single Beautiful, the intriguing Just Can't Win, and the electrifying All Your Lies. Other than those 3, the rest are full of either a slow, bland or whiny sound. Also the 3 minute instrumental endings get tiring, they can get rid of those. I wouldn't recommend not buying the album, just think about it before you do. If you were hoping that 10 years would take what made them special and tone it down a notch or two then this album is perfect for you, but if you were like me and hoping they might take it to another level, sorry...not this time
