Product Description

Conceptual in nature, the Atlanta based group Sevendust explores the recesses of the mind and the torturous conflict within in questions 'Can I possibly or continue to ...?' This extremely personal revelation is inscribed upon a raw and uncompromising landscape embedded on a sixth full-length studio album entitled, Alpha. From the blood-curdling vocal introduction, courtesy of the track, 'Deathstar', to the unadulterated brutality and chaotic exit of it's twelfth and final composition, 'Alpha',: a career defining statement is an apt conclusion on the tip of the tongue as they witnesses this historic tenth anniversary marker. That is, if one can survive the unprecedented ride presented. This is the explicit version.

Alpha is destined to be remembered as one of the best metal albums of 2007. Driven and Deathstar are two of the best songs on the album. Alpha is a masterpiece and Sevendust is at their best on this album. Sevendust continues to grow and to progress with each album and this album is brilliant. This is an absolute must for every Sevendust fan.

One of the best CDs of 2007(so far....with Machine Head).
I've been a Sevendust fan since day one.They've had their ups and downs,but this disc is pure GENIUS!
The songs stick in your head forever,and believe me......I want them there!( helps drown out the other voices)

3.0 out of 5 stars Juvenile May 12 2007

I suppose that over the years it can be said that Sevendust have been hit or miss, album-wise. They have the ability to write outstanding melody and crushing heavy hitters (i.e. Angel's Son and Black, respectively), but each album seems to find Sevendust attempting to find their place over again. It isn't the reinvention that I dislike as much as the lack of PROGRESSIVE direction with the "Sevendust style" as they continue to move forward in their career.

Alpha is a manifestation of the group's attempt at a return to an earlier era, as well as an attempt to harness a more brutal, less-polished sound, but it lacks conviction to me. The lyrics are weak in the sense that they attempt to express angst that sounds as though the words were composed by a 12-year-old. For example: Confessions of Hatred: "Responsible for bringing out my darkest side/I tried to hide what I feel but it's my time/

To inflict all the damage". If I were a fan of Hatebreed and their adolescent approach to angst, then maybe lyrics like these would trigger that itch that makes one want to break windows as a kid, but I am not, and they don't. The words seems empty and the rest of the lyrics in the song are a collection of rambling thought. That goes for much of the rest of the album.

The underlying music sounds more like a giant experiment instead of a composed effort. The guitar pieces are boring, even confusing, and I listen to Mudvayne, who constantly play in strange time signatures. However, most of the riffs on this album seem forced, and though I can admire a lack of flow (though, no one beats Tool for being able to play odd time signatures and create a groove), it needs to be able to flow well. By the end of the album, all the chunky parts began to run together and sound like they were cut from the same riff in the song before it.

However, it isn't a total flop, in my opinion. "Driven", "Deathstar",

"Alpha", "Story of Your Life" and (in spite of it's name) "Aggression" are all listenable tracks, in spite of my reservations on some of their lyrics and direction. Overall though, this album is weaker than most of the albums that have come before it.

I hope these guys find their direction again, complete with stronger lyrics, melody and composition. Next, Animosity, and Sevendust were all good albums, and I hope that they find that same energy in the future.

It's refreshing to hear them dive back into the sounds they originally started out with. Great vocals as always from Lajon. Great music to jump up and down to live as well I'm sure.

Best Sevendust CD in years! They are back. They dropped the Electronica, the slow songs, and all the sap. Born again hard, I didn't think they could be this heavy!
5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly 7D's best yet March 6 2007
By J. Roder - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have been a 7D fan for years...seen them 17 times live, and was never disappointed, they are awesome to hang out with, talk to, and drink a few(well maybe more than a few) beers with. I love every cd they've put out, but i think they just made their best one yet. Alpha is by far their heaviest, their is a lot of double bass and a lot of Morgan screaming(Lajon sounds great as usual), which is what I have been waiting for. This disc just doesn't stop, it maintains it's heaviness throughout, unlike most of their other discs, which usually have a few slow acoustic style songs to break it up. Don't get me wrong their is still, and always will be great choruses/singing, but they have taken the heaviness to a new level. I can tell this is the album they've been waiting to do. Sevendust has found the sound they've been striving for(and what the record labels didn't want them to do)and they, in my opinion, put forth their best effort to date, it really showcases what they are capable of. If you had any doubts about this album, throw them out the window because this cd just flatout rocks front to back!
