Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Well I got Smacked April 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album was made with a budget of $2,500. Every song here is good. If you don't think so it may grow on you, unless your one of those Alice in Chains fans who still don't take in the fact that they are dead and who won't accept the fact that Godsmack are actually very talented. Lots of people complain that all of the songs have Sully saying go away, get up get out, better F***in' go away, keep away, etc. This doesn't bug me at all. Take these and put them with the rest of the lyrics and it isn't that noticeable. If you just got out of a bad relationship, then this album is for you. In the Sleeve, it says Sully Plays Vocals and Stuff. Meaning he sings and plays guitar and drums on some songs. As evident on the Smack this DVD. That was what happened to Sully when he wrote most of these songs. For those that enjoy drums (of any Kind) then Voodoo is for you as it was the song that convinced me to buy the album. Tommy is also a very excellent drummer. Its too bad he left Godsmack after Awake and joined Lo Pro. The only remotely weak song is Situation. It takes a while to pick up. The song Immune has audio clips from a movie called No Escape, which was really bad but it fits the song rather well. Moon Baby begins with a weird audio clip from something called Mysterious Forces Beyond. And to any one who thinks that I'm one of those poseurs that listens to Godsmack because they are played all over the radio, I'm not. I don't even listen to the radio. So you can take this review as from a person who appreciates good music. BUY TODAY. Hope this Helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Godsmack.......... April 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, ok. They may not be original, but what they do they do right. The songs on this cd don't vary much, but they are still great. I borrowed this cd from a friend and was blown away. These guys are people to be reckoned with.
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!!

1.0 out of 5 stars More "hey-yah-yeah-yeah-yeahs" March 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Why do creativity and power fade in only a few years after a new musical style created? Punk only lasted from 1973 - 1977 before the creative well ran dry and the emotion was traded in for political statements. Hardcore lasted from 1980 - 1985 and then self-destructed. Thrash metal lasted from 1984 - 1990 and then became boring. Nu-metal had the shortest life span, only lasting from 1994 - 1998.
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.

This is the debut album from Godsmack. Its okay sometimes, but at other times its not. The lyrics get repetetive. Lyrics like "Go Away" can be probably found on almost every song here. This cd also isnt the most original stuff I have ever heard, and its lacking a whole lot that makes it interesting. I wish they would have tried something new than just doing the same ol' rock formula. Not every song is good on here. The best songs are the singles. I usually dont think that the best songs on cds are the singles heard on the radio or TV or somewhere else, but thats the case here. That is dissapoiting. It doesent last long either and its not a classic. There are some good songs here though that I have enjoyed and this cd is not the worst thing I have ever heard. Godsmack is actually not a bad band in my opinion. There sound is good too. Some lyrics are okay, athlough most are repetetive. So, if you buy this, you may like it, but if you dont buy it, dont worry. You wont be missing out on much.
