Overview

Boston's Godsmack confidently brought neo-metal rock into the technological age by seamlessly incorporating noisy hooks into a tight framework of pulsing beats, processed vocals, and a slew of programmed samples, edits, and voice-overs. Singer/producer Sully Erna unloads a barrage of in-your-face verbal assaults, lambasting the often bumpy road of love relationships. These songs are caustic and unapologetic, with ear-splitting guitars and energetic drumming. Both "Moonbaby" and "Timebomb" are fraught with explosive guitar riffs, while "Voodoo" does an about-face and confronts the theme of obsessive love with full-bodied percussion. Godsmack's innovative use of sample mixing may lead to the erroneous conclusion that this reissued release sought to capitalize on sounds made fashionable by the likes of Prodigy and Monster Magnet. But one listen to Sully Erna's achingly brittle vocals is all that's needed to fully convince anyone that Godsmack makes serious hard rock. [In August 1999, Godsmack was issued in a "clean" version, containing no profanities or vulgarities.]

over all the godsmack cd is good, however have you heard the secret song? just let your cd player keep going after track 12...about 2 mins. it is nothing but a little drum tune..however everybody should listen to it at least once

Godsmack is a fresh band with great musical innovations. They are great live--anyone who caught their show at Woodstock '99 would agree. And their album catches their mood. Songs like Whatever, Keep Away, Voodoo and Timebomb are just a few awesome songs on the album. The vocals of Suly are amazing! Every song just blows me away!

They are much diff.(in a good way) then most bands today- and that makes all the diff. But what I like most about the music is the bass riffs and the strong low vocals (of course the lead guitar rocks!) They kinda have the 'Metallica feel'-Thats prob. why I like them so much, but I should not compare them to the Greatest Rock/Metal Band Ever!!!! godsmack is here to stay.

This CD is great! I am a long time listener of heavy rock and I think this is a great example of some of the best rock ever.

This is a great debut album by Godsmack. Combining so many tools. Self expression is the main point for Sully and the crew as the swim through the little thoughts in the back of their minds and place them down on paper. You can't look down on this album if you tryed. The next one due out on Oct.31'st should prove to be even better.

Of all the great songs from this monster band, nothing drives me over the edge more than "Time Bomb". I play the song to my co-workers who have become Godsmack addicts too. Long live this essential band.

This is by far their best ablum although their cd titled awake almost matches the power. If u wish to see what direct music should have gone in instead of rap and emo listen to this and remeber the days of good lyrics and powerful music.

Oh my god!! I love this CD!! When I got it I originally bought it for Voodoo, but when I listened to it, it was like Christmas came early! I can't believe how amazing it is! Okay, I have officially fallen in love with this band all over again! .
