Album Review

Nonpoint deliver another set of angst-filled hard rock that challenges the notion that modern metal eschews melodicism. Vocalist Elias Soriano displays a truly versatile set of pipes on their latest, Recoil, a record that falls short of elevating Nonpoint to the level of contemporaries like Rage Against the Machine or Tool, yet strikes a winning balance between the angular crunch of nu-metal and the anthemic brooding of heavy metal's heydays. The serpentine melody lines that weave their way through "The Truth" and "Impossible Needs" are indicative of a group that's not content with just pounding the listener into submission. Each time a song veers into atonal tedium, someone comes in with a curve ball, whether it's a sneaky guitar line that changes the direction of the verse or a strategically placed backwards cymbal swell. Some of the tracks sound like filler, especially the ill-conceived remake of Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight," but even then the band sounds road-weary tight. While by no means revolutionary, Recoil shows promise, and if Nonpoint continue to steer away from alternative metal's whiny and calculated aggression, they could very well break out from the middle of the pack.

Customer Reviews

ADDICTING!

I was turned on to this band by a friend of mine that was a big fan of Sevendust like myself. I got hooked on this band with the song "Your Signs" and so i decided to buy the next album. I am glad I did, this band rocks like Sevendust & Flaw and has sweet guitar screams in it. If your like me and listen for the Bass guitar, you'll love it in this CD. Buy it!!!!!!

They're Almost There

It's rare to find an album where just about 90% of the songs are amazing. nonpoint nailed it something fierce with their third album. They just keep getting better and better, it's like they can't help it. If you need something to air guitar to, this is the album. The Truth was a power house with me for awhile, I'd have that song on repeat morning, noon and night. I must say I felt the anger in Rabia. Past it All, In the Air Tonight, Wait are wonderful standouts.

Nonpoint!

First time I listened to this group was the album, Statement. I was hooked when i heard it and thought that they were amazing! Everything about them is good, great music and awesome vocals. When I bought the first album, I just bought it to try something new, and I was very pleased with what I purchased. Want something good to listen to, buy any one of their albums! You will not be disappointed.
