I've seen many reviews at this, and other websites, screaming that Down's first album was superior. Seeing as I haven't heard one lick of the first album, I must say I adore this one. And judging by comments that people have made about the first album, saying that it was much harder, I'd probably prefer II over NOLA.
Truth is, this album doesn't feel like most of the metal I've heard on my little journey into the genre. It's mellow, and flowing, but at the same time manages to have original and completely mind-blowing solos at times. Plus, the intro to "Learn From My Mistake" gives me shivers. Who'd have thought that Anselmo could go from the throat-scratchy Pantera tracks, to eerie, haunting lyrics. He seems to bring to life all of the emotions in each and every song, especially that one. Another favorite is "Ghosts Along the Mississippi."
Besides, how is it possible to dislike an album with a doobie interlude? Doesn't hurt that the track is JUST long enough to get your next joint nice and rolled to enjoy the rest of the album. Gotta love some stoner rock.
In summary, highly recommended. Can be widely enjoyed for the musical value, but there is nothing like putting the album on, and toking up to these guys. =D
