This is really good acoustic album!
I'm not really a fan of Godsmack (i actually heaven't heard but few songs (out of which there are 2 great; i might even go through their records to see if i'll find some more i like)), but this album is really a way to go!
If you are one of those who hate this band (i.e. their metal kind music) i actually recommend to hear this one. It might be smth you gonna like!
Usually when a band decides to unplug and put out an acoustic album, it either sucks or is amazing. Godsmack have found that middle ground with The Other Side. The album (EP technically) is a nice break from the nu-metal that made Godsmack famous, but has just enough edge to remind you that they are still a nu-metal band. The vocals on the album are good, seeing as Sully takes some of the aggression out of his voice to suite the music. The guitars and bass are solid, but not groundbreaking; however, some of the guitar melodies are very well written. The drumming is more or less the same from track to track, but it wasn't meant to stand out here anyway. If you're a fan of Godsmack pick this up, if you want a good acoustic album, give it a shot, you may like it.
