This was the first album I ever bought and I am dang proud that I did.
The most impressive songs on the album are definitely "Critical Acclaim", "Almost Easy", "Afterlife", "A Little Piece Of Heaven" and...
This is due to the guitars in each of them.
The most impressive songs (IMO) are Critical Acclaim, Almost Easy and A Little Piece of Heaven.
It stands as a testimony to the drumming, vocal and songwriting skills of the late great Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan...
There are songs on other albums of theirs I like more, this is my overall favorite album of all time.
Kudos, A7x. You've set the bar for Alt-Mtl.
You can't go wrong with any song on this album, they are all very catchy and nice to listen too.
The drums by The Rev are great if a little drowned out by the guitars.
But, I believe this will be the peak of a7x.
I'm excited to see what the next album will bring to the table.
They put thought into sound, lyrics and it has that quirky feelign that I get from all Avenged Sevenfold albums.
Personally I liked the Sounding The Seventh Trumpet purely because it is screamo.
The only songs I listen to freaquently are Critcal Acclaim and Afterlife.
However, in terms of how heavy an album or songs are, I prefer "City of Evil".
For those fans who love Waking the Fallen and Sounding of the Seventh Trumpet, and didn't care much for City...
But those who stopped liking them after CoE would most likely still hate it.
They get better each release. I didn't like city of evil the first time I heard it.
It's more melodic than Waking The Fallen, but it's more focuesed and polished than City Of Evil.
City of Evil had more intense guitar riffs and was electric.
"Sounding the Seventh Trumpet" was punk/metal, "Waking the Fallen" was metal, and "City of Evil" was in your face.
I'd say good riddance to it.. .
Critical Acclaim - this mix of hardcore riffs, insane drum lines, and political messages make this song easily great.
It is difficult to say how well this offering shall be received by the mainstream, but expectations should be high...
