Album Review

A few years after the 2003 release of their third album, Natural Selection, Fuel parted ways with lead vocalist Brett Scallions, which turned out to be a bit of fortuitous timing. Because Fuel were without a singer, they received a huge publicity boost in early 2006 when Chris Daughtry, resident rocker of the fifth season of American Idol, plugged them relentlessly, singing their songs and citing them as an influence. Since the band was down a singer, guitarist/songwriter Carl Bell and bassist Jeff Abercrombie (drummer Kevin Miller had left in 2004) decided to pursue Daughtry publicly, only to have the newly ascendant star turn them down. Undaunted, the pair hired Toryn Green as their new singer (and Godsmack skinman Tommy Stewart as their new drummer) and set out to make their own version of Daughtry's debut album with their fourth record, 2007's Angels & Devils. Musically, this isn't much different than previous Fuel albums, but they have followed their prodigy's lead, turning down the heaviness (not just in the guitars but the tone) and playing up the anthems and sentiment, leaving this as tortured-but-optimistic, tortured-but-earnest post-grunge. The production is brighter and Green is a more precise singer than Scallions, but such professionalism winds up giving Fuel a more generic feel than before — indeed, they sound more generic than Daughtry, who not only has a knack for rock anthems but also benefited from some professional collaborators.

Customer Reviews

This is not even fuel

The only reason they did not change their name, is because this way some people can see it's by fuel and say "oh fuel has a new album", because if they did change the name, no one would know who the f@#k they are. Fuel Died. And it was a long time ago.

There is no FUEL without BRETT and KEVIN

I saw them perform for the first time, since finding a new singer and drummer, at the MMR-BQ in Philly and all I have to say is PASS. Brett's voice is far stronger and superior to the new lead singer. The band should have tried to find a whole new sound rather than to match Brett's voice. I am so disappointed with the results of their new sound. Their live performances sound a bit karaoke. There is only one Brett and one FUEL. The time of FUEL has passed. Take Creed for example. The band split to form Alter Bridge and without Scott Stapp there was no band. Alter Bridge flopped just like the "new" so called FUEL will. Should have quit while you were ahead. Brett and Kevin were smart for leaving. I'll wait to see what thier endeavors will lead to. Anything is better than this mediocre album.

Amazing

This is an excellent album and truly a remarkable comeback for Fuel, who had to replace their drummer and lead singer. New frontman, Toryn Green, delivers a stunning performance, hitting notes with a clearer, more powerful way than Brett Scallions did, though the original Fuel sound will always be with Scallions. Best songs include "Leave the Memories Alone", Halos of the Son", "Angels Take a Soul", and of course, "Wasted Time". The iTunes release also includes 5 bonus tracks, but the earlier Fuel songs are Scallions, the ones from this album are Green. I had wondered what Green sounds like singing old Fuel material, but we'll have to wait for that. Great album.
