Pantera: I Am the Night

Sound — 10
The sound on this album is pure gold. The guitars on this album are brutally amazing, it has a more classic rock guitar style kind of feel to it than the original releases of Panteras albums. The drums on this album are really good I mean Phil can still bang the shit out of them and in this album he has kind of an AC/DC style of drumming. The bass on this album is just pure amazing and once again has that classic rock feel to it. So the sound on this album was really, really good.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on this album are like normal classic rock and roll lyrics like something AC/DC or Rolling Stones would sing. David is a really good singer and he has a really good songwriting structure and his lyrics are really gold.

Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to any other albums because Pantera made their own classic rock feel to this album. I don't have a favourite song all of them kick ass. I love everything about this album and hate nothing about it. If it were stolen/lost I would defenitely buy it again. This album is a must have for any fan of metal, classic rock and just about anyone that likes music. Pantera fans dont fear Dimebag still has pretty amazing guitar skills on this album even if it was released in 1985 it still kicks ass.

    Phil wasn't singing on this album, he didn't join until 1988 when Power Metal was released. You're thinking of Terry Glaze who sang on this album, as well as Project In The Jungle.

    yeah man....DAVID!...what the hell is that!? And ive heard phil play drums on the three vulgar videos from hell, he's not that bad, but not nearly as good as vinnie! R.I.P. Dimebag Darrell Abbott 1966--2004
    Pantera can lick my hairy nutsacks, especially Dime"doosh" darrell. Btw what the f is up with the album cover?! Looks like a big round pink pussy.

    agreed. kinda discredits the whole review.
    they wrote ''power metal'' with glaze and then they found phil n ****ed terry off and phil sang on this album. Anyone who has listened to this album you cant say phil isn't singing just because he's not screaming. so mother****er???
    The David he is talking about is David Peacock. Sounds redicolus, but he realy sang for Pantera. Not on this album though. He never realy was on an album. After Glaze left the band they hired this guy for about a month, and then they discovered Phil, and ditched this guy.
    you cant get this cd in stores anymore its a self released record by vinnie and darrells dad its hella hard to find i have power metal though
    OK, I might understand mixing up the band members, but "David"? Who the hell is David? Never heard the album. It'd be cool to listen to, though.
    two time felon
