Sound — 10
Revolver is a breath of fresh air in the de-tuned world of hard rock/metal. They are fronted by lead singer Nick Walsh formerly of '90s band Slik Toxik and his voice is only getting better with age. The music is unbelievably powerful with driving guitars and a huge rythm sound. This is no throw back to the '90s, but rather a progression from the better sounds of the day.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are very introspective on some tracks and rather light and catchy on others. The lyrical content does suit the music it is matched with. For the most part you won't be scratching yor head trying to figure out what the themes are and on the other hand you won't be embarassed singing the songs out loud.
Overall Impression — 10
I cannot stress enough that this is the best new band in years and the album is killer. Check a few tracks on the revolvertv.com web site and you will be hooked. There is not a bad track on the album but "Turbulence," Dead Weight," "Dreadnaut" and "Blue Sky" are standouts. This band is going to be huge and will provide a much needed shotnin the arm to the metal scene.
