…and what can I say about this CD?
Well, first off I was not really surprised by anything on this album, it's basically just another PANTERA album, BUT!! Man, what a great one…all songs are really powerful (as usual with these guys) and it's a good mix between groovy and fast, some parts remind me a bit of DOWN (P.Anselmo's side project) and other parts are pure fucking PANTERA-Metal.
One thing that is a little sad is that P.Anselmo seems to have lost a part of his excellent vocal cords (as heard on "Cowboys From Hell"), and the growling now takes the upper hand. Further on, the sounds that Diamond Darrel rips out of his guitar is not of this earth - simply amazing guitar-playing and as usual the whole crew is as tight as ever.
Overall a good CD that all who listen to quality Metal should have in their collection.
