Intense, dynamic, and full of seething rage, Drowning Pool's powerful debut finds ardent (and sometimes screaming) vocalist Dave Williams mining topics ranging from religion ("Sinner") to relationships ("Reminded") to fine effect, creating a nu-metal opus that's rock-solid from start to finish. "Bodies" boasts an irresistible, insinuating growling chorus ("Let the bodies hit the floor"), with the tune's melodic, suspenseful verses providing the perfect buildup for the cathartic chorus. Williams's impressive whisper-to-a-scream delivery in "Tear Away" and the unbridled energy of "Told You So" are also striking. The Texas quartet's post rap-rock heaviness is aggro yet melodic, not to mention believable, credible, and intelligent. Their smart lyrics, chunky rhythms, and punchy production (by Jay Baumgardner of Papa Roach fame) make this music for the Ozzfest generation. --Katherine Turman
Consider yourself warned: Once the bodies hit the floor, the floodgates will be opened. Drowning Pool are here to stay! -- Metal Edge, August 2001
In my opinion this is the best Drowning Pool album out there. The vocals he made his own and the sounds on all the songs are all put together so well. Good mix of everything, and great songs you will remember and catch yourself singing. Thank you seller for the great service!
Who can forget the first single from this album? Bodies is destined to be remembered a metal classic. It's amazing. Tear Away and Sinner are amazing songs from this album. Drowning Pool delivers a masterpiece for a debut release. Drowning Pool's Sinner is an amazing album!!
