Sound — 10
Having had the 1st upo cd and loving it. I was very surprised and pleased to see the boys are back with a crushing new cd. Expanding on an already "instant classic " type sound and song structure the band is definately posed to strike back with the new release "The Heavy" pounding riffs and soaring and gritty vocals with lyrics and emotions that rival any classic record this cd should be a fav. For all rock listeners alike! Produced by multi platinum Rick Parashar of pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog, Alice in Chains, Nickleback fame. A definately add to any cd collection and this reviewer give it a straight up 5 out of 5 on all levels.
