Release Date: 2002 | Tracklist


1.Invisible Man
This is by far in my opinion the best track on the CD. It starts of with a cool and basic opening and kicks in with a a foot tapping drum beat and bass. The song talks about Tyler Connely being Invisible, hense the name of the song.
4.7/5

2.Nothing Could Come Between Us
This is the first song that they released from the album. It starts with slow country-rock guitar and kicks into the lyrics. It then kicks into the Chorus which is more quicker than the Verse and where the guitar is more heavier. Has a small solo in it which fits in well.
4.2/5

3.Make Up Your Mind
The second song they released form the album. You can clearly see the Nickelback influence on in this song especially. Nothing special about it, small solo once again, nothing overly upbeat but a good song.
3.3/5

4.Point To Prove
Cool intro, nothing fancy but still good. Once again, nothing upbeat but its a good song. Hasnt got anything different to the other songs.
3.9/5

5.Leg To Stand On
Opens with realy cowboy kinda lyrics "Gte on your horse and ride.." This song is good because is more upbeat than the other songs. Overall a great track.
4.4/5

6.What You Deserve
A wierd intro riff with alot of Fuzz or Distortion. Same as Invisible Man and Leg To Stand On as it is more of a upbeat song. Even though it is more upbeat im not overly fussed with the song.
3.5/5

7.The Last Song
Not sure if this song is suppose to be more of a romantic or gente song. Doesnt really do much for me. I thought the whole osng was going to be gentle but the Chorus is more lively than the Verse but then goes into the gentle verse again.
3.0/5

8.Say I'm Sorry
More same as the last track as its a slow sort of song but it has more distorted guitar which makes me like it more with some smal lead fills in the Chorus which give it more flavour.
3.3/5

9.Any Other Way
Quite a catchy song I think. Has a nice fuzzed intro that turns into quick, chugging chords. Not the most pleasant lyrics to open with "You try to open your mouth but only *** would come out"
Overall 4.4/5

10.Confession
This song has a long winded outro, the last chord is at 3.25 and the song is 3.57 so there is quite a big chunk of that thats just quiet. Like the other songs unfortuntely, nothing impressive, its more lively than the other songs but like I said its nothing special.
3.5/5

Overall, even though I have given the the songs on the album more than 3.5, I still think that the album lacks diversity and all the songs are variable the same with a few exceptions. Partly similar to Nickelback with obvious connections in some songs but partly in a different leagues because of their more heavier guitar but nothing ovrly heavy.

For a Nickelback ripoff band, this is surprisingly not that bad....

I heard "Invisible Man" on the Spiderman Soundtrack and despite sounding exactly like Nickelback, I thought it was awesome. Pretty good review.

I would of thought more people would have left more comments for these guys....(???) anyway i think the review was fairly shallow, i would of liked band members noted, and a brief intro for the band and the album. But yes this album is worth a good mark, Invisible Men and Any Other Way are top tracks. Yes these guys do sound a tad like Nickelback, unfortunately , but Theory Of A Deadman has better lyrics and muso's thats for sure......3.5/5

I love this album!
Its has its comparisons to Nickelback (Chad Kroeger produced it after all), but I think they are superior in a lot of ways. I dont like their new one compared to this one, but I enjoy them a lot. They are a tight band, with good solid songs that are catchy...can't go wrong! Favorite songs are: Nothing Could Come Between Us, Any Other Way and Make Up Your Mind. Acutally, I think every song on this CD is very good.
I give it a 4.5 out of 5

This album is so boring. There isn't much variation between songs and it moves so slowly. The only remotely good riffs are in "Invisible Man". The only good part about it is the production, which is crystal clear and mixed well.

What I don't understand, is why a mainstream band always has their mainstream albums hated, but their not-so-mainstream albums loved.

Honestly, this album is pretty, pretty bad.
