Sound — 10
In my opinion, Pantera has brought out the best of their unique sounds in this album. Vinnie Paul's drumming was exceptional, nothing could've sounded better from any of their previous albums, smooth sounds from the snare and cymbals. The sounds from the guitar weren't too bad either, perfect overdrive settings were used in tracks 1, 2, 4 and 8. Contour was set perfectly, this gave it a really unique set of riffs during tracks 2, 4 and 8.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics were thought out well and presented in a great manor. The mature lyrics really brought out their feelings into their songs. Alot of the songs bring out their anger. Good lyrics for when you've had a bad day.
Overall Impression — 10
It compare's to nothing else they've ever done. It brings out a very smooth sound with a great combination with its lyrics. Some impressive songs would be Goddamn Electric and Uplift. The digital bass sound brought out really sounded excellent. There wasn't really nothing bad about this album at all. Mature lyrics that brought out anger, great backing vocals and drumming, I'd say this was a pretty great album to listen to when you've had a bad day. Excellent music to play to.
