Sevendust Hompage

Sup everybody! I am on my FIFTH album review, woot. Anyways, this week I shall be reviewing Sevendust – Cold Day Memory! Yes, I know it doesn't come out till the 20th, BUT it has been played on the radio and I do have a copy. This being the radio version I am missing one (1) song and it does sound kind of muted. So barring those issues, let's get it on!

So, what qualifies me to review this CD (besides the FOUR other reviews!?) nothing really. I mean have listened to 2 songs by Sevendust before and that is all. So I guess that counts for something right?
Oh well, let's start the review officially.

I like the CD. Really I do, but that about as far as the praise will go. The overall feel of the CD is one of “I want to go further, but I can't.” The vocals of Lajon Witherspoon are, in this one's opinion, kind of boring. Throughout the album his vocals are just honestly lacking in that extra punch. Perfect example is the opening track. While listening to “Splinter”, I was under the impression I would start head banging at any moment because I seriously thought things were going to get heavy. Unfortunately things never do, you are left sitting on the edge waiting.

Then there is the problem of the instruments. Every single song they seem to be drowned by the boring vocals. I can't help but feel they did it so we could hear the boring, but that just doesn't work. I do enjoy the music when I can hear and it is good.

Overall this CD is kind of boring. Nothing really stands out, and everything sounds that same. It is a decent listen, but nothing worth more than one or two listen. So, final word is it is mediocre.

I give this CD 3 Shocked out of 5 Shocked
