Sound — 10
Dark Days is heavier than the self-titled and Chamber Music and it's the best in my opinion. Heavy but easy riffs by Meegs, as always. Some riffs are darker, like "Watershed", but it's still simple to play.
Lyrics — 8
In my opinion, the lyrics are better than on the other albums. Dez sings with a depressive voice in the verses and screams like never before in the chorus. The lyrics are simple but it's still good, listen to "Friend?".
Overall Impression — 10
This is their third and best album. My favorite song is "Beckoned". Every songs are good tho. I never listened to it without listening to the whole CD. I would definitely buy it again and it's really worth it, I recommend it. Coal Chamber may not write awesome and impossible riffs to play or complicated lyrics but they sure can write catchy songs, and this album will always be my favorite.
