2.0 out of 5 stars Trying too hard Oct. 12 2012
By The Nihilest TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must begin this review by pointing out that I am a big Machine Head fan, and have been since Burn My Eyes came out in '94. I have most of their albums,and I've seen them live so many times I've lost count. I preordered the deluxe edition of this with the dvd, so I think it's fair to say I genuinely wanted to, and intended to, like this album a lot. Unfortunately, I did not.
The album begins with about a minute of the vocalist droning two words over and over(Someday sunny someday sunny someday sunny etc..) It's truly annoying even on the first listen; on subsequent listens it's unbearable, but it's part of the first track so you can't skip it(if you look up the track on Youtube, that intro is cut off it). After listening to the album twice, I had to edit that out myself to ever listen to the song/album again. It's a truly terrible way to start an album, and I really wondered what they were thinking.
Unfortunately the rest of the album told me what they were thinking - they were going to do whatever it took to pad out the songs and make them as long as possible. The songs on here are just too long, and they get boring fast. Make no mistake, I like long songs when done properly. I'm a big fan of Opeth and Justice is my favourite Metallica album. But these songs on this album are just one riff after another with no real dynamics or purpose. Just piling riffs on top of each other just to make the songs long. I find my mind wandering off really fast, and having to force myself to listen to the songs. And I'll be honest - a really good riff or melody will show up once in awhile and grab my attention - and then the next riff comes along and it doesn't fit, and the song goes nowhere, yet keeps on going.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as The Blackening April 25 2012
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed Machinehead's earlier works but, after two listens, this album doesn't grab my attention like The Blackening did. fwiw Locust is my favourite track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good album Dec 5 2011

Format:Audio CD
By far one of their best albums. The Blackening is still "unbeatable" as far as being one of the greatest of all time, but their new album contains very strong songs that any Machine Head fan would appreciate.
