Review Summary: Shinedown's best album.

2 of 17 thought this review was well written

There is no other way to start my review of The Sound Of Madness than to just say it; Shinedown has made their classic album. Every single track is worthy of a million play's. Devour is rock n roll at its best. Sound of Madness has such a distinct guitar riff and vocals that blow your mind with each listen, best rock song on the album. If you have a radio, you've heard Second Chance, I don't need to tell you how astounding every aspect of this song is. Crow & The Butterfly is nothing short of beautiful perfection, the lyrics are so creative and unique, they are really pushing the genre. Breaking Inside is a ballad through and through, I'm very surprised the song hasn't got the mainstream attention it deserves. Call Me is acceptable for any audience, the piano is a perfect tool to close out such an intense album. The tracks I didn't mention do not deserve any less attention than the one's I have, mind you. The Sound Of Madness has something for everyone, it is a classic.

Best Track: Sound Of Madness/Crow And The Butterfly
Worst Track: N/A
Rock Ballad: Breaking Inside
Spine-Tingler: Call Me
Girlfriendly Song: If You Only Knew/Crow And The Butterfly

Why don't you actually write a review once instead of submitting your actual soundoff as a review?

I think there's actually some pretty awesome songs on this cd. Thing is, Sound of Madness is the only one that he mentioned. The rest of the songs he mentioned are pretty boring and lame. Review is what it is.
