The best SOAD album, and certainly an album that is nothing like I have heard before. It is bizarre how crazy and untamed this album it.

Hopefully I can come back some day and make a full review

However at it's best it shows some of the best metal ever to be in the limelight. From Prison Song with incredible lyrics that are whispered and yelled. To Jet Pilot some amazing guitar. Science is a generally funny track making fun of religious hypocriticism. Of course the hits ... read more
