2.5 averageMaggieG | September 7th 14

I find this album to be depressing as it was released shortly before Ian Watkins was charged with some of the most disgusting crimes anyone could imagine. Musically though, Weapons is a disappointing album from the Welsh metal group. It feels more like a tribute album to themselves with songs that sound a lot like their previous hits without really doing anything new. 'Bring Em Down' and 'We Bring An Arsenal' are enjoyable enough singles though they suffer from the same 'you're with us or against us' attitude that they sung about since Start Something whilst 'Better Off Dead' sounds like a sub-par Rage Against the Machine cover. 'Another Shot', 'Jesus Walks' and 'Somedays' are my favourites from the album but overall, this album comes across as boring and formulaic.

It's a good effort but I still have problems with this sort of music. It's counter-productive. The way it's all one structure, all beckoning for the big chorus and the lyrical themes are so empty that anyone can stick their shoes into them and fit in. I get that the appeal is more for the sound and how these songs dress the structures to make them interesting with melodies that snag your ears but I'm looking for a little more. All these bands have talent to write good music but I feel they don't try to. They write songs, not albums.

lostprophets release an album which i think is in the wrong direction, i enjoyed the betrayed but this just isnt for me. the songs in the seem very 'predictable' i feel as if i have heard the songs before somewhere. the deluxe tracks are the better tracks on the album definitely. fave tracks - arsenal a song for where im from, somedays, the dead, save yourself, weapons.

A surprisingly consistent album consisting of anthems, anthems, and a few anthems for good measure.

Garage Sessions songs are probably some of their better songs, very similar to those from Start Something, and the hidden title track is great!!

First four songs rule, next two are aight, and last four are shite. Still, the six bonus tracks (including the bonus one on the remix) are all fuckin awesome, so 2.5 overall.

A few stand out tracks, several solid 'Prophets songs, and a couple of songs that I like to skip
