4.0 out of 5 stars Evil at its Best Oct. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've never been much of a Misfits fan, but having heard a few songs from them, I can honestly say that this eponymous band of Glenn Danzig, the singer of that famous punk rock group, is far better. I've been getting into Danzig's for a few months now, buying each album in order to hear the progression they've made. And indeed, with each album, they get better and better (so far, DANZIG III: HOW THE GODS KILL is the best - review to come!). Here, this album is a little rough around the edges, but it is undeniably a great piece of laid-back hard rock.
Glenn Danzig is a very talented singer. He has a powerful voice that carries a sort of Mississippi Delta/New Orleans twang, which complements the bluesy feel to the songs. He's an interesting, if not original, songwriter, most of the songs seeming to gloat how he is evil in one way or another, but with a sort of smirking, sexual, yet altogether tongue-in-cheek crooning. It's like Elvis Presley and Jim Morrison meet Christopher Lee...if that makes any sense.
The riffs and patterns are simple, the subject matter dark and somewhat silly, but this is very good stuff from a fairly straightforward hard rock band. There is a distinctly bluesy feel to the album and many of the songs. Take, for instance, "Twist of Cain." Such a simple and repetitive song, but I'll be damned if it isn't catchy ("Yea, twist of Cain, yeah, drives my brain, yea..." - with the blues rhythm and voice, how can that NOT be catchy?!). Also, "She Rides" is especially bluesy. And of course, there's the now-classic hit "Mother" (which would not gain fame until 1993), with its brief but dazzling solos and, of course, catchy chorus. Just about every song on here is catchy.
In some ways this particular Danzig album reminds me of the Doors (a la the crooning) and AC/DC (the bluesy but heavy rock). However, unlike the latter band, most of Danzig's songs aren't clones of one another.
This is a terrific album. It's catchy and fun; evil at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Metal Album July 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am not really that into metal but when I read about how much people with similar tastes to mine loved this album I decided I'd give it a try. I haven't heard any of Danzig's other releases but I am sure to sometime because this album really truly impressed me. I'd say this album is more of a 4.5 on my scale but I guess I'll round up. Glenn Danzig is a great frontman, just as he was with the seminal punk band The Misfits. I like the southern rock influence on the album and it doesn't come off too metallish. The lyrics are dark, but not in a demonic or evil sense, not that I really care about that. The real great thing about the lyrics is how Glenn Danzig pulls them off. Many a time during the album he comes off sounding sarcastic. Now to get into the songs. Mother is definately the most famous Danzig song and still gets much airplay on "alternative rock" stations, this is well deserved because it is one of the better songs on the album. The best song on the album in my opinion though would have to be Twist Of Cain. This song may be one of top fifty or so songs. Other standout tracks include Evil Thing, She Rides, and Not Of This World. There is really not a weak track on this album and its pretty easy to play in its entirity with every listen. I'd definately recommend this for anyone remotely interested in metal and most definately the avid metal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both Underground and Classic May 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't understand after all these years how can an artist like Danzig be at the same time classic yet, only known to a few people thus making his music belong to the underground stage.

SOUTHERN DARK HARD ROCK is the way I would describe his music and DANZIG I is the album that started it all after Misfits and Samhain.
Great rythm guitars with riffs that stay in your mind from the first time you listen to them.
Great lead guitars by John that gives lessons of how you can be a great guitarist without playing your ass out (watch new gen Timmo and Yngie) but still making sense.
Combine Jim Morrison's vocals with that of the King and what do you have??? EVIL ELVIS!!! I love the irony and the despair in Glen's voice.
Twisted evil lyrics that match with the music. I don't know if the lyrics and the whole picture didn't make him attracted to the larger masses but I am glad that the album is just the way it is.
If you like hard rock, heavy metal try this album and you won't be dissapointed. Then if you like this one know that the second album LUCIFUGE is even better that the first one with the third and fourth following in close distance.
I just wish Danzig would read so much comic books and lose time with making Blackacidevi and the mediocre Son of Satan when in the past he has influenced a whole music move.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting Aug. 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the 1st Danzig lp with the "new" name. Taking
Eerie Von from Samhain, John Christ on guitar- who made
a guest appearance on Samhain's finale "Final Descent",
Chuck Biscuits formerly of Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and
other seminal punk act;on drums and of course ol' Glenn himself
on vox. THis is a different sound for Glenn seeing as
Glenn made a career out of horror-punk. While the subject
matter stays true to form- the music takes on a classic
metal/rock approach. Crossing over to the 70's metal of
Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin while mantaining simplicity
in riffing and arrangments. There's plenty of guitar noodling
courtesy of John Christ who unlike players from Glenn's past
is more than just competent at his instrument. Chuck also
fine tunes the rhythm section while Chuck isn't playing thrash
drum lines he shows more than once he has chops more so than previous
drummers of Danzig. What about the vocals you ask?
Well- they are still pretty true to form of Glenn sounding at
times more like Morrison than ever. Most people will get this
because Danzig's top 40 track "Mother" is on here. But there are
some other killer songs: "TWist of Caine", "End Of Time" so forth. Perhaps the track that sticks out the most is "Possession"
which sounds like Samhain could've easily done the song.(And they did I come to find out!) Are there things that bother me about this release? Yeah the guitar could use a little more gain at times it sounds like John is using the clean channel and just
decided to crank the gain instead hitting overdrive. John distortion is your freind! Otherwise this is worth picking up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who recommended Michael Bolton?
This is an excellent album. Glenn Danzig sounds like a mix between Jim Morrison and a post-war blues crooner, and it's no wonder Metallica was such a fan during the 80s. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a knockout.
Very weak. The lyrics are pedestrian,music is nondescript,and the evil schtick is old,tired,and phoney. Danzig is NO stranger to the knockout. Avoid this. Read more

This is easily Danzig's most straight forward album of his solo career. The most straight forward Misfits is Earth A.D. and the most straight forward Samhain is Final Descent. Read more
