What can I say... Boring, repetitive, déjà vu...  I've read so many good reviews about this album, it was a huge disappointment when I first heard it, and it went down from there.  Heavy metal flirting with heavy rock, this album lacks on originality musically, and some songs would have been better off as instrumental rather than having unimaginative, highly repetitive lyrics.  Some of the lyrics are alright but why the hell to they repeat the most idiotic ones over and over?

I'm lucky, I've got a CD with a limited edition bonus track.  Wow.  The song, No Me Digas, is either in Spanish or Portuguese, but hell, if I wanted that I wouldn't have bought a record in English, would I.  Oh, I forgot, the song sucks.

There are a few good moments here and there but overall this album just doesn't make me want to listen to it anymore.  I don't normally return CDs to the record store, but in this case I'll make an exception.
