Sound — 10
The sound of the band on this cd is great. Especially Tom Morello because this is his best work with the guitar. He makes the most unearthly sounds ever like on Born As Ghosts the weird Star Wars type robot sound he makes and on Mic Check the "laughing guitar" and the sound that I can only describe as aquatic but, the best guitar work is on Ashes In The Fall with weird beeping noises at the beginning and the great and extremely hard to duplicate work on the on the interlude.

These are Zack's best and most powerful ever. I really liked Calm Like A Bomb because the best song lyrics wise and "the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker" is one of the coolest lines I have ever heard on a song.
Overall Impression — 10
This is Rage's best cd ever. I think all of the songs are great but, I think Ashes In The Fall is the best song on the cd. This cd is definitely worth buying and if there are any rage fans out there who haven't bought this cd yet their either crazy or their not rage fans at all.
