Review Summary: Hellyeah was supposed to be one of those "super" bands where really talented musicians from different bands come together to do a side project, in this case, kick ass southern metal.........

Hellyeah was supposed to be one of those "super" bands; where really talented musicians from different bands come together to do a cool side project, in this case, kick ass southern metal.

Now, being a fan of Chad Gray and a huge admirer of Mudvayne and Pantera, I decided to give this band a try. I disliked the idea of this band a lot for a while. I thought the idea of Chad going from Mudvayne to this was ridiculous and stupid. While not being a fan of the first album, I had high hopes for this one.

This album is very scattered in sound and has it's hits and misses, just like their first album. "Hell of a Time" and "Cowboy Way"are the two singles off the album, and have a very light hearted feel to them. "Debt That All Men Pay" is in between the two singles, and sounds way different from them. The first three songs are "party.......pissed off!!......party", which I don't get at all.

Halfway through the album, I suddenly here an acoustic guitar and clean vocals from Chad, which really surprised me. The song is called "Better Man", which is one of the stronger songs lyrically on the CD. Chad sings of the hard feelings he has toward his father, who was never there for him and his mom when he was a kid. Instrumentally, this song was a good refreshment from the previous songs. Shortly after this song though, the track "Pole Rider" comes up, and the soothing enjoyment I was experiencing from Better Man is ruined by this poorly written, and very annoying song. This song is more or less about a stripper who will suck you off for the right amount of money, which is a cool concept, but Hellyeah fails to deliver the message in a decently cool way.
Everything else in the album is forgettable until you reach the final song, "Order the Sun" which is the best song on the album in my opinion. The guitars are brutally heavy, and Chad shows his heaviest Hellyeah scream to date here. The song is done in 3/4 time, and is very catchy.

To sum all this up, this album is very similar to the first one. Except I feel like they're trying to hard to have a little bit of everything on this album, in order to appeal to everyone. Although there a a few catchy songs on here, it fails to show anything out of the ordinary and is a step down from Mudvayne in my opinion. If you like to party and you love metal, pick this up cause you'll probably enjoy it.

BEST SONGS ON THE ALBUM:

Cowboy Way
Debt That All Men Pay
Better Man
Hell of A Time
Order the Sun
