In a post-Seattle Sound rock world, there's still a hunger for music that's dark, dirge-like, and heavy. And the void left by Soundgarden and company is being filled by a spate of bands, including Boston's Godsmack, who even nicked their name from an Alice in Chains song. Like Creed and Days of the New, Godsmack are raging and disenfranchised, as singer Sully Erna's lyrics illustrate: "I am in a living hell / Makes me wonder if I'm alive" or "You're pathetic in your own way / I don't like you anyway." Though the territory being mined isn't new, Godsmack's grungy grooves, potent energy, and strong hooks are irresistible. With a dash of Tool and a smattering of Filter seeping through, Godsmack are on the money, especially on "Whatever", the tantalizing "Get Up, Get Out!", and the strident and syncopated "Bad Religion," on which Erna puts one in mind of James Hetfield. While Godsmack's approach may not be fresh, the foursome's strong songs and powerful energy are still intensely tasty--especially for those with a taste for songs on the sober--but never staid--side. --Katherine Turman

Moon Baby ~ 10/10-Good song to start. The last half of this song is instrumental, and it's a great song to head-bang to, or mosh....
Whatever ~ 10/10-This is one of the best songs on this cd. Everything about this song is great
Keep Away ~ 9/10-Again, another great song. Simply put.
Time Bomb ~ 9/10-This is one of those songs that you have to listen to for a while to find the true essence of it.
Bad Religion ~ 10/10-The intro to this song will be stuck in your head. The drums on this song are incredible.
Immune ~ 8/10-It's ok, but sometimes I skip it
Someone in London ~ 5/10-Enough said
Get up, Get out ~ 8/10-One of those songs you will find yourself singing for no apparent reason
Now or Never ~ 9/10-I love this song. It's addicting. Everything about this song is done perfectly
Stress ~ 6/10-I don't really listen to this one
Situation ~ 6/10-See above
Voodoo ~ 10/10-This song is demonic sounding. The music on this one is haunting, but great. One of the best songs on this cd.
On this cd, Godsmack is still trying to set themselves apart from all the other bands. It's a great start of which to do that. Go buy this cd!!
Korn had made their sound "more accessible" in '98 and Limp Bizkit was on the rise. Godsmack was one of the first to be accepted by commercial radio.
The album "Godsmack" had been around for a year as an independent release titled "All Wound Up." Many major labels were hungry for the next Korn and Universal snagged up Godsmack. It was a very sweet deal for them since all they had to do was add a song and re-master the album.
Godsmack's sound is just like White Zombie only with a different voice. They have plenty of samples and other recording studio enhancements.
The cover of the albums features a sexy female model, something that had disappeared after the glam metal scene went away. The only difference between glam metal album covers and this cover is that the girl has rings through lip.
The guitars have a nice grinding sound, but the songs are arranged in a pop music fashion. Also, there are plenty of trademark "hey-yah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeahs" to those party going dudes all excited.
The first single, "Whatever" is the first to feature their favorite saying on the album, "Go away!" The angst comes across as generic. "Bad Religion" is an attempt at blasting Christianity, but it's very hard to take seriously.
Not only is the album unoriginal, but it lacks power. It's like all other pop metal. It may sound nice the first two or three times around, but it loses all power after that.
