Godsmack: Awake

Sound — 9
Godsmack has changed since releasing the self titled CD and now most of the songs are drop C tuning for guitar which makes the CD and the music sound depper. I loved the fact they had another instrumental song. The sound overall was good and the mixing done was great. The bass or guiatr wasn't overpowering nor were the drums.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics were very good and most of their songs again were two or three word songs but the lyrics were. Only a few songs had in it but it wasn't screamed out and it was only once in the song. The lyrics matched the song title which helpful. The lead singer has a great hard rock voice so I think that makes the CD.

Overall Impression — 9
I do like it mroe than the self titled CD and more than Faceless. I am impressed the amount of guitar solos. I think they have one in almost every song which is a good thing to learn. I loved the instrumental but I didn't like the song after it which was a 49 second song leading up to the song after. I think they could have put that song in the beginning of Spiral. I would buy it again of I lost it.
