Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

On Awake, Godsmack play their ghoulish hard rock with such a straight face, they make Metallica look like the Insane Clown Posse. For proof, look no further than heavily pierced frontman Sully Erna, who is not only a practicing Wiccan but the author of melodramatic declarations such as "Can't you see what this pain has fucking done to me." It's too bad the follow-up to the Boston band's triple-platinum self-titled debut rarely delivers the desired intensity. Instead, the album offers anodyne takes on the same old themes of aggression ("Sick of Life"), alienation ("Bad Magick") and hocus-pocus ("Vampires"), with the all-too-familiar buzzsaw of nu-metal guitars and elastic bass grooves tearing throughout. --Aidin Vaziri

Godsmack was actually one of the first nu-metal bands I started listening to before I knew what true metal was. Even when I first got this CD, I never did like it. But when I started getting into real metal, I HATED it (and still do).
Godsmack is a band that doesn't need talent. Why? They have a major label. And they're on alternative rock radio. And MTV. And let's not forget all those nu-metal promoting motion picture soundtracks popping up these days. The title of this record is Awake. I do not believe this title does justice, as this record bored me to the point where I actually fell asleep (and I'm not kidding). The first few songs are ripe and ready for radio, sure; but after that they all sound the same. Boring, slow, predictable...The same riffs, the same lyrics...pure crap...
Anyways, I'm so glad I sold this CD. Godsmack fans will not like this review, but that's fine, because this is my honest opinion, and I mean everything I say. However, I do recommend you turn the radio off and check out some of these bands: Opeth, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Pantera, Megadeth, Iced Earth, Dimmu Borgir, The Gathering, Stratovarius, Soilwork, Nightwish, In Flames, Decapitated, Lacuna Coil, Morbid Angel, Arch Enemy, Within Temptation, Macbeth, Charon, After Forever, Tiamat, Meshuggah, Vanden Plas and there are a treasure trove of others. Or, if you're still a Godsmack follower, then at least check out Fear Factory's new Archetype; maybe that will make you forget about this lame garbage.

Godsmack is OK. This was my first godsmack album, and I was neither revolted nor incredibly impressed. While they make some good songs, some of the lyrics are a little hard to believe like: "sick of my life tired of everything in my life" and "Oh God I keep making the same mistakes" These exclamations aren't that hard to come up with. Really. I liked the other side alot better than this one. Flaws: too loud, mediocre lyrics, and ugly tunes. Oh yeah. Excessive use of the f-word. Why? The places with they use it are so pointless. Unless they want the parental advisory sticker.........
Sick Of Life: 7/10 eh.......this one is kinda dumb, but at least it's catchy.
Awake: 10/10 Great Song. But 12 words in the song, Sully drops the f-bomb. Erghhh. This never fails to annoy me. I love this song though.
Greed; 8/10 OK.....The chorus is really ugly though, they should just get rid of it
Bad Magick: 10/10 Yeah! Good Song. Woohooo!
Goin Down: 9/10 I like this song because I am not being bombasted with too loud guitars.
Mistakes: 5/10 Boring and Ugly
Trippin: 7/10 Mediocre Nothing great
Forgive Me: 8/10 I dont listen to this song much but i'm sure its not that bad
Vampires: 9/10 I like it, but the spoken word stuff is kinda corny...
The Journey: 2/10 Why not just make it part of spiral? WHy?
Spiral: 7/10 Interesting for the first five minutes, but after ten minutes or so this song gets dull
Best Song: Awake
Worst Song: Mistakes
Song with most excessive use of f-word: Awake

After releasing a $2,500 produced debut album, Godsmack returned with their sophomore album titled Awake. This album is great from start to end. Sully's lyrics are filled with anger and frustration. Due to better production, the album also seems heavier than the self title. Bad Magick is the only song that sounds similar to the self title. We also have Mudrock, the same producer from the self title. The complaints on the self title that all Sully could say was Go Away, Keep away, etc are shut up, due to the fact that Sully never says anything like that. No go aways, no keep aways. Tommy's drumming flows perfectly from drum to drum. Robbie's Bass is all over the place in songs like Goin' Down. Tony's Guitar Solos are filled with emotion, something that Godsmack fans hold to their hearts dearly. My favorite solo is found on Trippin'. Although it starts out slow, it is absolutely perfect and is over a minute long.
The CD is also enhanced with 10 short videos with the members talking about the album. Although the qualities of the videos aren't that great, you have to remember that this came out in 2000. Another complaint about the album is that all the songs sound the same and they bleed into one another. In my opinion, it's pretty obvious when a song on the album starts and stops. I can understand when people are talking about the first 3 songs sounding the same. But they have several differences. Sick of Life has a very different feel on it that on the other songs, it is also the heaviest song on the album. Awake has that different guitar effect in the beginning that makes it obvious that a new song has started. Greed is about a guy that tried to screw them over and they talk about it on the enhanced part. But everything in this song changes from Awake.

Although it is not as heavy as their self-titled album. This cd does not fail to deliver. The songs are written with such feeling and emotion it's unbelieveable.
Sick of Life ~ 9/10-This song is a perfect way to start off the cd. It's starts off slow but builds up fast.
Awake ~ 10/10-This again is another great song. Great solos.
Greed ~ 8/10-This one took me a while to get used to, but once you do it's awesome.
Bad Magick ~ 6/10-This is one of those songs you either love or hate.
Goin' Down ~ 6/10-This was the first song I heard by Godsmack, it was on M:I-2....I have loved them ever since
Mistakes ~ 8/10-This is another great song. The lyrics are really powerful.
Trippin' ~ 10/10-The drums on this song are intense. I love everything about this song
Forgive Me ~ 10/10-This song has one of the coolest time changes ever.
Vampires ~ 9/10-An instrumental song that never lets up...
Journey ~ 4/10-This song goes into the final song. But by itself, it's only a 4
Spiral ~ 10/10-Like voodoo. Starts of slow, builds in the chorus. Then never lets go of you. A great way to end the album.
In my opinion, this is Godsmack's best cd.
I loved them since M:I-2 and don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
