Product Description


Those expecting a collection of full-on metal songs on the latest Sevendust album will get only half of what they want. While the band has always had a more melodic, less rap-metal approach than their peers, tracks on Animosity are far more accessible than typical nu metal. Some songs, with their contradictory mixes, do sound disjointed and confusing, but "Crucified," "Damaged," and "Dead Set" are just a few examples where it all fits together nicely.

Elsewhere, tracks fall into power-ballad waters, but thankfully they are not cheesy. "Xmas Day" and the midtempo "Follow"--featuring assists by Aaron Lewis of Staind--feature dark but emotional melodies that are carried beautifully by Lajon Witherspoon's soulful vocals. The album closes on a spiritual note with "Angel's Son," Sevendust's heartfelt tribute to late Snot singer Lynn Strait, which is fleshed out by a string section. --Gail Flug

2.0 out of 5 stars weak... nu-metal, not sevendust March 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Home was rebellious, inventive, distinct, energetic, even sophisticated in its musical sensibilities, and remains one of my favorite albums ever. and i dont even like metal. if it weren't for lajon's voice however, this album Animosity is basically indistinguishable from all the other whiny straight-edge recycled sounds of "nu metal" trash that radio dj's and angry high schoolers just cant get enough of. on Home, all the brutal guitars and thunderous rhythms and awesome vocals seemed sincere, that there was a reason they were playing this stuff. this is lost on the nu metal scene, nu metal is loud because they feel it has to be, and most of the time their lyrics are so vague and childish that all the heavy stuff that the bands play just becomes a huge joke. i dont know why, but thats the main problem with nu metal, and it is exactly what this album suffers from. they can bash the crap out of their drums and tune their guitars as low as they want but it sounds so trite and obligatory, theres no rebellion behind the noise, just trend-following.

5.0 out of 5 stars They can't get worse Feb. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I thought it was impossible for Sevendust to stay as good as their sophomore album "Home", undeniably their best album."Animosity" picks up where "Home" left off and it just proves that 7dust are here to stay:
1. T.O.A.B. 10/10 a heavy track with a little funk thrown in-great way to start off the album
2. Praise 9/10 very groove heavy and easy to get into-the first single off animosity
3. Trust 10/10 this song has it all and i love the guitar riff in this one
4. Crucified 10/10 crazy good track-heavy bridges with a mellow chorus
5. Xmas Day 10/10 mellowness at its finest-sevendust prove they can durn down the volume too
6. Deadset 7/10 i just could never get into this one
7. Shine 10/10 sounds like something left off "Home" and a standout track on "Animosity"
8. Follow 9/10 this is the track with Aaron Lewis and its a great mellow collaboration
9. Damaged 8/10 not one of my favorites but still good
10. Live Again 10/10 WOW and I mean WOW what an awesome track-everytime I start to listen to it I can't change the track-beautiful melody and overall the best song on here
11. Beautiful 10/10 it's tough to top Live Again but Beautiful ranks up there as one of the standouts
12. Redefine 9/10 i love the opening part because it's so groovy-great closer
13. Angel's Son 10/10 very touching song that was redone fromt he "strait up" tribute to Lynn Strait outstanding work on this one
"Animosity" is an incredible album and I suggest every fan of 7dust, big or small get this for their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars changing times Aug. 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've seen reviews of this CD that have said the CD is not heavy enough. What CD are you listening to. While the style of heaviness has changed in Sevendust from the Self-titled to Home, this is still heavy. Check out Trust, Praise, Beautiful, Damaged, Dead Set, Shine and T.O.A.B. I do have to agree that they are changing musically, which is not a bad thing. Most "nu-metal" bands change their music for what they think will get them air-time and sell more records, while not staying true to where their music originated. Sevendust has become more harmonic and melodic with the additions of Morgan and Clint singing, but they still have the Heavy Metal aspect within their guitars and bass playing as well as the rythym from Morgan. While it is sad to see bands such as Staind, Limp Bizcuit (they could have been awesome), and Disturbed change musical styles for paychecks, bands such as Sevendust, Tool, P.O.D have stayed true to their style. I can't wait for the new album "Seasons" to come and I hope everyone will continue to support such bands that don't "sell-out" to the industry.

3.0 out of 5 stars infected by nu metal...... Aug. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
there was a time when rap metal was pretty loose and rebellious stuff and still kind of underground, when the singers were actually mc's with something to say, and the bands were as interested in funk and hip hop as they were in rocking out. this was shortly before all this stuff god really popular and turned into "nu metal". this is about when i was introduced to sevendust by a hardcore metal type dude who was way into cannibal corpse, slayer, etc etc.. i checked out Home and was amazed, they were so heavy yet refined so that it wasnt self-conscious and annoying, unlike most metal bands. their vocals were really the key, to have a singer with such a distinct and powerful voice that doesnt sound corny and whiny when he's singing ballads and doesnt sound like a screeching high schooler when he's doin the growly stuff. that on top of these wicked layered riffs that have a definite dose of hip hop and funk to them. home is such an awesome album, a little repetitive, but it has such a dope vibe to it. kind of a more underground and rebellious feel. anyway thats how i got into sevendust, who remain one of my favorite bands when i dont even like metal that much.
so then this album comes out, shortly after nu metal has blown up with its self-pitying lyrics and ludicrous growling/screaming, and in general a vibe that panders blatantly to angry teenagers with vapid lyrics about vague and cliche personal issues. none of these new bands really are very interested in music or anything else, they really just want to tune their all-black guitars to drop d and whine about themselves in front of a mob of little kids who just learned how to hate their parents.

This album is more then just heavy riffs, screaming vocals and fast drums. To say they lost anything would be complete crap. This album covers sevendust's heavy and softer side. Read more
