The Sound Of Madness

About this item

On Shinedown's third album, The Sound of Madness, the Jacksonville-based band hits every post-grunge expectation: winding up the guitar riffs with thin, flattened distortion; pumping up rhythms with steroids; punctuating melodies with familiar fills; and writing vaguely inspirational lyrics that come close to confirming the group's rumored Christian rock origins. Their precision is accentuated by producer Rob Cavallo's pristine production, digitally designed to push Shinedown over into the big leagues where they can have the occasional adult rock power ballad hit without losing their testosterone-fueled audience. Nothing is left to chance, and that's the way Shinedown's fans like it. Some of those fans -- the ones who like to see the band on the WWE, where "Devour," the first song on The Sound of Madness and its first single, is 2008's Night of Champions theme song -- may carp slightly about that slight increase in gloss and almost imperceptible uptick in power ballads, but most won't notice these subtle shifts as Shinedown serve up what they always have: active modern rock embodying the sound of post-grunge in the new millennium. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

"The Sound of Madness" - Shinedown

Let me start off by saying this. I do not listen to rock music. I mainly listen to country but there is something about Shinedown that I love. I first heard "Second Chance" and thought "Wow, this is a good song" and downloaded it on my iPod. And played that for a long time. But then I heard "If You Only Knew" on VH1. And they blew my mind. I knew I had to get there album and it immediately became the most played record I probably have ever listened to. I can not tell you how many times I listen to Shinedown a day. I am obsessed with this band. As a matter of fact I am listening to them as I write this article. They are fantastic and just a great group of guys. The three main "gotta have it" tracks are "If You Only Knew", "The Crow & the Butterfly" and "Sound of Madness". You will not be dissapointed with this CD. Please stop reading this and go buy it now.

Just when I thought Shinedown couldn't put out an album any better than their last two, I was proven wrong. The first two albums were unbelievable, and I expected this one to be just that. I was wrong, this album crushed the prior two. Beginning to end this album is radio ready. Each and every song will leave you amazed. Another job well done.
