The Distillers: The Distillers

Sound — 10
The sound is excellent. You can just feel the heartache and hate being conveyed by the music. Not only the lyrics of the songs are edgy, but the guitar riffs and licks (mostly mad up of power chords) are unlike anything I've ever heard, they match the words perfectly. They drums and bass also sound good.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are the best I've heard in a while. They came from Brody's heart and her past. Brody is a literary prodigy and uses curses to add rage to the songs. Everyone can relate to at least a few of the lyrics.

Overall Impression — 10
The best songs on the the album lyrically are "Gypsy Rose Lee," "The World Comes Tumblin'," "Ask The Angels," "Idoless" and "Oldscratch." The best songs on the album musically are "Colosuss USA," "Girl-Fix-Er," and "Oh Serena." If it were stolen, I would buy it again in a heartbeat. I love everything about this album. It holds a permenant slot in my stereo disc changer.
