Album Review

Godsmack's first, slow-burning success — the self-titled debut from 1998 — spent two years climbing charts and selling records as the witchy minstrels of alternative metal wound their way across the country on two consecutive Ozzfest tours. The sound was familiar enough, recalling Alice in Chains in both vocalist Sully Erna's tortured howls and their very name, taken from that band's excellent 1992 release, Dirt. And while it initially failed to impress critics, fans quickly picked up on the band's industrial touch to the post-grunge sound. Likewise, 2001's Awake was regarded by some as a sophomore slump, with only half of the sales of Godsmack's debut, but "slump" in this case equaled double-platinum. And though the sales did validate the band's effort to some extent, Awake was full of growing pains, as they tried in vain to shed their influences and ended up with a record that had successful moments, but its reliance on stop-start rhythms often left it sounding sorely underwritten. Faceless, Godsmack's third full-length, grooves more fluidly than Awake, but the band still hasn't managed to locate the pop hooks that made their debut a success. And while concentrating on texture can be just as interesting as hooks, lyrics as misanthropic as Erna's only sink Faceless further into the mire.

Customer Reviews

Headbanging for people who hate Godsmack...

Faceless may be one of the best Metal Albums to date. Almost every song on this CD is the cream of the crop. My personal favorite is "Re-Align", but "Serenity", "Straight Out of Line", "I Stand Alone", "Make Me Believe", and "Faceless" keep the CD from getting boring. Truely some of the best Metal of the 2000's.

Be True To Your School

People knock this album because of the constant influences of the likes of Alice in Chains, and the similar sound to every other song they've ever made. But Godsmack stays true to their form, making a style of music that's very individualistic in its own right. The energy levels in "Straight Out of Line," "I Stand Alone," and "Re-Align" are off the charts. Tony's guitar solos are some of the best modern rock has to offer, and despite losing Tommy Stewart on drums, Godsmack is able to keep much the same sound with Shannon holding the sticks. Some weak songs in the mix like "Dead and Broken" bring the album down a little, but still, Godsmack remains one of the best modern rock bands.

Love it!

Just what we have come to expect from Godsmack.

Biography

The Boston-based alternative metal group Godsmack were originally comprised of vocalist Sully Erna (a devout Wiccan), guitarist Tony Rambola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Tommy Stewart. After debuting in 1997 with All Wound Up, Godsmack signed with Universal, which in 1998 reissued the LP as a self-titled effort with a handful of new tracks; at that point Stewart — who'd left the group in mid-1997 and was replaced by drummer Joe d'Arco — returned to the lineup on a permanent basis....
