Sound — 10
The sound of this album is just great, outstanding production work. The bass and the guitars have such a great tone. Each song has a groove that sticks in your head. You'll even start chanting along with the songs after the first verse! This is with no doubt "The Future of Hard Rock". As you listen to the songs you find some connection points with Godsmack, because of the power in each song and for the strong vocal presence. The band started in late 2003 the New York born and raised Pfeffer brothers Rob (vocals, guitar) and Dan (guitar) set out to create an original hard hitting sound that would incorporate aggressive melodies, in your face guitar driven crunch and ear grabbing, radio-ready hooks. FEFF's line-up solidified with the additions of Long Island native Brian Struse (drums), and New Yorker Adam James (bass).

The songwriting is also great each song is hook, after hook, after hook. The lyrics make a good connection with the music itself. FEFF has proven themselves as a band with the attitude and the brains to get what they want. Editor Mike G from Metal Maniacs, said it best, "They're smart, they're talented. Those are the ones who make it, those are the ones who last." The singing skills are great, Rob Pffefer (singer, guitar) has what it takes to be a great lead singer, he has some vocal similarities with Sully Erna (Godsmack).

It's very hard to pick a favourite song, because their all good. This albums best is no doubt the catchy and easy songs you'll will start singing after hear it the first time. And a very important thing if you haven't seen them live yet, go see them. FEFF is a show you don't wanna miss. If it were stolen/lost I would definitely buy it again, it's a great disc to have.
