People that call this album Nu-metal...please review what Nu-metal means before ever criticising this album. Just because two songs have some sort of rap-like vocals in it does NOT mean the entire album is nu-metal.
Look up the definition of Nu-metal before ever going into a tirade of how terrible it is. Ok thx...and I can't review much because the damn spotlight reviews basically took lots of my words >.<
Over and out...
1. As I Am 10/10- The radio single from the CD never received any airtime. A quiet intro gets louder and goes into LaBrie's pounding lyrics. "From the doubtful I demand, TAKE ME AS I AM!" is the highlight of this song, but has good performances by the entire band.
2. This Dying Soul 9/10- Over 11:00 long, never gets boring. Has a long band jam that features many solos by both Rudess and Petrucci. The only problem is that the song sounds more like two or three songs because there are no smooth transitions between solos.
3. Endless Sacrifice 10/10- Another song over 11:00 long, but has another lengthy instrumental section with a great playing by Petrucci and Portnoy, but Rudess shows how amazing he is with his keyboard work.
4. Honor Thy Father 6/10- Has a sound like Korn or Limp Bizkit with rap-like lyrics and guitar solos that are more noise than pleasure. Portnoy and Myung help this song and make it somewhat worthwhile.
