Album Review

For a region so rich in sunshine and skin, Southern California is filled with angry young men. When Adema unleashed its brutal but melodic brand of alternative metal in 2001, fans of Staind, Korn, and Tool rose to the occasion, buying enough copies of the self-titled debut to see it achieve gold status. By 2004, lead singer Mark Chavez — he's the younger half-brother of Korn's Jonathan Davis — had left the group, a move that split fans in half. New vocalist Luke Caraccioli is more subdued than Chavez. Utilizing a fluid croon that dutifully conveys emotional resonance but shies away from the screams and explosive outbursts that defined the band's previous work, Caraccioli further cements the band's trek from beefy nu-metal doomsayers to angst-filled, mid-tempo, Evanescence-esque (say that five times in a row) radio rockers. While killer riffs and tight melodic choruses do occur ("Shoot the Arrows" and "Enter the Cage"), the bloated, 16-track run time of Planets renders the good stuff less effective.

My God Life Is Over

I am a huge fan of Adema but this alubum just killed it. The loss of Mark took away the painful feeling of Adema its so soft its just sad. Do not buy this album if you loved the previous two.

BAH!!

To me it just makes more sense to change your name if you get a new singer. I mean the singer is the VOICE of the band. They're the one that as soon as you hear start singing you go, "Oh I know who this is!" If you get a new singer, you've gotten a new voice, so change the name. Seriously, that would avoid a lot of shaking heads and rejection. It would be much easier to say, "Oh that band broke up but some of guys from it started another band." Then your mind will see it as "something new" instead of trying be a replacement. I can't imagine going to a show and seeing these guys preform their old songs. Hearing this new guy trying to have that sound as Mark Chavez. Now I haven't listened to anything more than just the 30-second previews here on iTunes (and honestly I doubt I will ever listen to any more), and I don't have anything against Luke Caraccioli or his style (though with time I could come up with some). In old Adema fans they see Luke as a replacement to Mark and that is never a good situation. People compare and reject. In my opinion, this is not Adema.... this is something else.

A Worthy buy

What sets this album far ahead from the rest is the mix of Hard Rock, Metal, and Soft Rock encorporated into each of these tracks. A prime example is "Barricades In Time," track 2. Preview it to see what i mean. Then you have a more hard rock track like "Better Living Through Chemistry," track 11. So do yourself a favor and get this album now!!! You won't regret it! ;)
