|Is it a tribute album or just completely unoriginal? It seems that almost every song is a copy of another band's. Some examples: Destruction sounds like Yngwie's "I'll See The Light Tonight", Stay Tonight is Impellitteri's version of Bon Jovi's "It's My Life", The Fall of Titus is identical to In Flames' "Pinball Map", Punk is like Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park (but this one is clearly intentional), Hurricane cops Layne Staley's vocals (and contains the cheesiest lightning sound effects), and Crushing Daze uses Phil Anselmo's vocal grunts, Black Label Society's guitar squeals and Disturb's riffing - sheesh!|
Altogether this is a confused album trying to make it by utilizing all kinds of influences. For younger listeners though this album will come off as catchy, it should - it draws from other successful acts. I'm sure this "plagiarism issue" has been brought up elsewhere, but I checked and didn't find anything but positive reviews.
