Catchy from the beginning because of the memorable riffs, tolerable vocals, and highly technical musicianship. Many other bands in this genre try to impress with skills (and drag on for too long) rather than with songwriting. The songs on this album are short and sweet.
Alice in Chains Black Gives Way to Blue4.0
I was very pleased to hear they sounded like where they left off. I think if they tried to modernize it would've been a disaster.
Megadeth Endgame2.5

Stryper Murder By Pride3.0
I gave this a 2.5 except Peace of Mind is so good that I bumped it up a bit. That's the only track worth getting. Well, "Murder By Pride" isn't bad also.

I've been a fan of Marty's since Cacophony days. I tried to give this a chance, but it was too terrible to get through it. I will never revisit this one.

Impellitteri Pedal to Metal2.0
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.

I love these songs, but always hated the drum machine. Fortunately he re-recorded these on 2X Again with real drums so that one gets a 5.0.
