I had my trepidations about this album's release. Not many bands in the heavy metal genre can ride high thru a third album, but after seeing them live last month, my fears were put to rest! The audience reaction to the title track was something to see! Draiman definitely has a stage presence! This album has all the aggression of Sickness, with obvious political overtones. (the Prez offers lots of material) Disturbs rendition of Genesis' 'Land of Confusion' seems to fit in nicely on this album and it pays homage to, rather than rape the original. Donegan has stepped up and plays with more prowess and actually embarks on more solos. I enjoy this disc alot more than Believe, and rest assured, there's no 'ballads' on this disc as it closes just as aggressively as it begins!
