Sound — 10
The sound is kind of bluesy on occasions and the usual style of QOTSA others. I like it as much as Songs For The Deaf, although it's a little slow for my taste. The guitars are pretty good, along with the drums and the bass. Nick Oliveri is not on this CD, but I still like it as much as their old.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are very good, especially for a "Radio" band such as these guys. Most lyrics in this genre suck, or aren't that great. The lyrics are very off-the-wall and some have secret meanings. But these are very good.
Overall Impression — 10
Compared to their other albums, Lullabies To Paralyze holds up strongly. My favorite songs are Little Sister, I Never Came, Burn The Witch, and In My Head. I liked the singing and all the instruments, but I still think it was a little slow for my liking, but it's still great. If it were stolen I'd buy it again because it's a good album. By the way, I bought it first day. Overall, great album, must buy!
